New Volvo V60 D4 Inscription Denim Blue Design

Published on

The 2019 V60 is built on the scalable SPA platform, just like the 90 cars and the mid-sized XC60 SUV. That means it features the same active and passive safety technologies, as well as the semi-autonomous Pilot Assist system and the touchscreen-focused Sensus infotainment introduced with the XC90. As far as the exterior design goes compared to the also SPA-based V90 and V90 Cross Country, this time around, Volvo could play around a bit more with the light, both in order to break up the mass visually, and to give the 60 models a more dominant stance. This tightened look is a requirement in this segment, not to mention that the V60 is also destined to spawn a Polestar variant sometime in the future. Still, if you ever saw a V90 with the R-Design package in the wild, the V60 won't cause a heart attack. While other markets get two diesel options until the world gives up on them for good, Volvo's American offering starts with the front-wheel drive T5 (specs to be confirmed) and the all-wheel drive T6. This car packs 310 horsepower and 295 ft.-lbs. of torque, giving it a zero-to-sixty time of 5.8 seconds. Both plug-in hybrids are a full second quicker off the line, with the T6 Twin Engine having a peak output of 340 (253 gas+87 electric) horses and 435 ft.-lbs. of torque. Figures of the the top-of-the-line T8 variant should be familiar too, as this hybrid pushes you forward with 390 horsepower (303+87) and 472 foot-pounds. The latter gives the T8 a tow rating of 4409 lbs. as well, because you might have a cabin by the lake, and therefore, a boat.
