Volvo V60 Officially Unveiled. Sexy Wagon Gets Two PHEV Engines

It's telling that Volvo's chosen venue for the global unveiling of its brand-new V60 wagon was the driveway of a typical suburban family home, showing the new V60 in the natural habitat in which it is created to operate.

Highlights of this new V60 include a symbolic break from the Ford era architecture of the outgoing model.

The new mid-size premium wagon is Volvo's first SPA-based model to be offered with two plug-in hybrid powertrains, at least in Europe that is.

A second version of the T6 is also expected for the US market, and it will introduce a new plug-in hybrid powertrain to Americans.

Measuring 4781mm/1850mm/1427mm (L/W/H), the new V60 is 146mm longer, 16mm narrower and 57mm lower than its predecessor, while the 2872mm wheelbase is 96mm longer than before.

Ryan Coogler expresses gratitude for 'Black Panther' success
The director has written a message thanking fans, many who have dressed up and even hired out cinemas to watch the superhero film. This action-packed film had its audience at the edge of their seats and swimming in emotions at nearly every turn.

The car's exterior is not too far removed from that of its larger V90 sibling, sharing familiar styling cues like "Thor's Hammer" LED lights, large grille, wraparound rear lights and a raked rear windscreen, while a choice of alloy wheels ranging from 18 to 21 inches is likely. The aging sedan uses a range of different engines, including a base T5 engine that produces 240 hp (178 kW) and 250 lb-ft (338 Nm) of torque, as well as a more powerful T6 engine that produces 302 hp (225 kW). Like other models on the SPA platform, the V60 runs a quirky, Corvette style transverse leaf spring rear suspension setup. Many left Sweden sporting a five-door station wagon body, exclusively with fuel-injected engines for the United States.

The two plug-ins are the quickest with 0 to 60 acceleration times of 4.8 seconds and 155mph top speeds while the T6 petrol with its 0 to 60 time of 5,8 seconds is rated at 38mpg with a Carbon dioxide figure of 171g/km.

Keep that one to yourself.

New safety features are available for the 2019 V60, and include an updated version of Volvo's City Safety suite of collision avoidance technologies. City Safety with Autobrake not only detects other cars but also pedestrians, cyclists, and "large animals" which should make those hectic, right turns downtown a little less nerve-wracking. The ability to do the same in the face of oncoming vehicles and mitigate head-on impacts is claimed as a world first. It also benefits from the latest autobraking technology. Volvo's Sensus infotainment system with a portrait-mounted screen sits in the centre of the dashboard and will offer Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G connectivity.
