Volvo has an established pedigree in the family car market. Having been known for its innovation when it comes to safety and space for decades, the marque today adds the feathers of style and performance to its cap.
The new Volvo V60 sports the same contemporary looks at its siblings, boasting a wide grille with inset badging, T-shaped lighting incorporated into its headlamp design and sleek, fluid lines that emphasise its length. Even the rear is distinctive thanks to uniquely shaped tail lights, and chrome accents highlight its classy attitude.
As soon as you step inside you’ll notice the space and practicality that the V60 offers. The seats are comfy, and both front and rear passengers will enjoy the extensive legroom on offer. There’s plenty of height to the roof too, whether you pick the standard version or the panoramic glass sunroof, which showers the cabin with sunlight.
Three conventional engines are on offer to power your V60 – two 2.0-litre diesels and a 247bhp turbo petrol. All deliver a sprightly drive with acceleration from 0-62mph in under 10 seconds – a remarkable feat for a family car. The ride is settled and confident, and even at high speeds the cabin remains quiet. If you prefer a greener drive, opt for the hybrid, which slashes emissions while offering supreme flexibility both in town and on the motorway.
