Volvo V60: price and specs revealed
UK prices and specifications have been revealed for the all-new Volvo V60. With a list price of £31,810, Volvo says personal lease rates will start from £299 per month, with customer deliveries expected in the third quarter of 2018.
In a first for the segment, customers can access the new V60 via Volvo Cars' new premium subscription service too, which offers car access via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership.
Underlining the Swedish company's position as a maker of cars that combine good looks with everyday practicality, the all-new V60 shares the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform as the award-winning new XC60 while introducing a new standard to the mid-size premium estate segment with a luxurious interior, increased levels of space, advanced connectivity, and the latest driver-support systems and safety technology.
The new V60 reinforces Volvo’s stellar reputation for safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver-support systems making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road.
For driver assistance, Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The system is controlled via an intuitive tablet-style touch screen that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and entertainment apps.
The Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 80 mph – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance.
The City Safety with Autobrake technology uses automatic braking and detection systems to assist the driver in avoiding potential collisions, and is the only system on the market to recognise pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. In a world first, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions.
The mid-size premium estate gets a choice of two diesel and one petrol engine from launch, while two petrol-electric hybrids will join the line-up after launch. No specs for the latter have been revealed, but the diesels are made up of the D3 and D4, which produce 148bhp and 187bhp respectively.
A 247bhp T5 petrol engine will also be offered, which is capable of up to 43.7mpg. The two hybrid options will join the line-up later.
