What Car? says...
This Volvo V60 review could quite easily begin with some whimsical, antiques dealer-inspired introduction based loosely around that fella whose name begins with ‘L’ and ends in ‘ovejoy’. Yet that would be an awfully hackneyed way to introduce an estate car as sharp and shapely as the V60.
Volvo currently ploughs a furrow of contemporary chic, and shed its fuddy-duddy safety-first image a long time ago – but that doesn’t mean safety has been rinsed from its DNA entirely. The V60 is fitted with many of the anti-crash devices we’ve seen in larger Volvos so it keeps you swaddled securely in a ball of high-tech cotton wool.
The V60 finished just above mid table out of 26 cars in the executive car class of the latest What Car? Reliability Survey. As a brand, Volvo finished mid table out of a total of 32 manufacturers.
Prices for the V60 with the entry-level B3 petrol engine start from a little more than £40,000. The T8 plug-in hybrid (PHEV) is the most expensive, costing nearly £60,000. Check the latest price on our New Car Deals pages.
At 4,778mm, the V60 is 167mm shorter than the Volvo V90 but – at 2,040mm wide (including the door mirrors) – the V60 is slightly wider than the V90 (2,019mm).
