What used Volvo V60 estate will I get for my budget?
Prices for the Volvo V60 start at £17,000 for an early car with a high mileage, so it's best to budget for a spend between £18,000 and £22,000 or more for something with a more average number of miles from early 2019. Spend between £22,000 and £28,000 on a used 2020 car, and around £28,000 to £35,000 on a 2021 or 2022 model.
Petrol examples are rarer and much more powerful than the diesels, and this is reflected in the price; a T5 starts from around £20,000. Rarer still is the T8 plug-in hybrid, so you'll need to spend around £35,000 for one of those.
All versions of the V60 fall under the flat-rate fee of the current road tax system, unless it was worth more than £40,000 when new (including any factory-fitted optional extras). If it was, you will have to pay an additional surcharge every year until the car reaches six years of age. The current fees are £165 a year for the flat rate (£155 a year for the hybrids) and £355 a year for the surcharge.

Volvo's servicing certainly isn’t the cheapest around, but you can spread the costs with a monthly service plan.
The cheapest V60 to insure is the D3 diesel, which is in group 25, while the D4 is in 31. A T5 petrol is in group 34 and the plug-in hybrid T in 42. On the whole, the V60 sits in higher insurance groups than the Audi A4 Avant and could cost you more per year to insure.
