09:18 Crash Test Review - Features - Performance Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, today revealed the new V60 five-door, mid-size premium estate, underlining the Swedish company’s position as a maker of cars that combine good looks with everyday practicality. The car was launched in its natural habitat – the driveway of a family home in Stockholm – highlighting Volvo Cars’ pedigree in family estates and pinpointing how the V60’s versatile design caters to the diverse needs and realities of modern family life. Few car makers can match Volvo Cars’ history and credibility in making well-designed, practical and versatile estate cars. “The family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations,” said Håkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. “The new V60 honours that tradition, but also takes it much further.” The new V60 shares Volvo Cars’ Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform with the award-winning new XC60 and four top-of-the-line 90 Series cars, which have been the collective force behind the company’s record-breaking global sales performance in recent years. The SPA-based V60 introduces a new standard to the mid-size premium estate segment with a luxurious interior, increased levels of space, advanced connectivity, plus Volvo Cars’ latest driver support systems and other safety technology. “The V60 really is the central point of the Volvo brand,” said Robin Page, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars. “It’s refined, has a beautiful proportion and stance, yet delivers on practicality and versatility.” In a first for the segment, customers can access the new V60 via Volvo Cars’ new premium subscription service Care by Volvo*, which offers car access via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership. Care by Volvo makes having a car as transparent, easy and hassle free as having a mobile phone. Reflecting Volvo Cars’ industry-first announcement to electrify all new cars from 2019, the V60 comes with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options: the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that generates a combined 340hp or the T8 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that delivers 390hp. The regular petrol choice offers T5 or T6 powertrains. Drivers who prefer diesel can select D3 or D4 engines. The new V60 reinforces Volvo Cars’ standing as the industry leader in safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver support systems known from the 90 Series and XC60, making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road. 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 Pilot Assist system – which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130km/h – has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The V60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake further improves safety for people inside and outside the car. Volvo Cars’ Sensus infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The system is control via an intuitive tablet-style touch screen that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and entertainment apps.

Northern coolness or German precision - is the new Volvo V60 the better T-Modell, Avant or Touring? See for yourself....

The V60 has much in common with its big brother. It rides on the same Scalable Product Architecture platform, it sports the same inviting-yet-minimal Scandinavian interior, and it hosts the same 8-speed transmission and twin-charged (turbocharged and supercharged) 316 horsepower T6 motor and all-wheel-drive system. A 250 hp turbocharged T5 front-driver will also be available at launch, and a 400-hp plug-in hybrid will follow.
No one would mistake the driving experience for that of a vintage Volvo, either. The combination of similar power, shorter overhangs, and around 200 pounds less weight makes the V60 feel sportier than the V90. In fact, it has a genuine liveliness that was particularly expressive on our route through the coast, mountains, and towns around Barcelona. The V60 is plenty quick (0-60 in 5.8 seconds for the T6 AWD), and its reduced length makes it feel more nimble through the Montserrat mountains twisties. Even with the optional 19-inch wheels on the upscale Inscription package car we drove, it was well damped enough for long cruises on the Autovías. Its heavy breathing engine doesn't feel quite as taxed in this application as it does in bigger, heavier ones.
We did spend quite a bit of time experimenting with Volvo's latest incarnation of its driver assistance technology, Pilot Assist. Like all of these systems, it works best (rather, only) on roads with clear and unbroken markings, and we were relatively impressed with the V60's ability follow at an overly cautious distance, and not drive over a cliff. The system does like to hug the outside line of a given lane, which is not ideal for our life-loving temperament. We wish there was a preference setting for this. Volvo claims that the most recent version has been upgraded to better handle curves, an assertion that may very well be true given that previous versions sometimes approached non-linear stretches of road the way an infant approaches baking a soufflé. Despite our inability to master it, the proper line through a curve is often expressed to us as a kind of replicable formula. Can this not be programmed into a car?
Maybe it doesn't matter. No one is ever going to track a V60, or even pound it through winding foothill vineyard roads like we did. What people will, and should, do is sit in this thing for a long stretch and take a road trip. Volvo has always had some of the best seats in the industry, and the new ones in the V60 are stellar, and look especially good in the optional City Weave Textile upholstery, which is a rich and nubby gray plaid, available as a no-cost option only with the lower-priced "Momentum" trim package. (The optional perforated, massaging, sport-bolstered, Nappa-leather seats in the "Inscription" package are also very nice.)
In fact, the V60 is so good, and so good looking, that it almost makes us question our eternal affection for the V90. Given that many wagon buyers fit into the rich-but-reserved psychographic known as "stealth wealth," we suppose there will always be a subgroup who want the bigger, more expensive one. If we were spending our own imaginary money, we'd be tempted to go for its smaller, cheaper, fraternal twin. Hitting blackjack on split aces doesn't yield the 150-percent payout premium merited by a "natural" blackjack, but it still delivers a pair of wins.Automotive Cars News,2019 Volvo V60 T6 AWD, first drive, 2019 Volvo V60, NEW Volvo V60, 2019 Volvo V60 DESIGN STORY, lisa Reeves, vadimauto, vadim ovsiankin, Volvo Cars, #V60, VOLVO V60 FIRST DRIVE, 2019 VOLVO V60 PREVIEW, NEW V60 TEST DRIVE, volvov60, Volvo v60 2019, NEW V60 2019, new v60 test drive, VOLVO V60 FIRST TEST DRIVE, #newV60, 2019 Volvo V60 T6 AWD first test drive, 2019 Volvo V60 T6 twin engine Plug in hubrid,
