Volvo has showcased the all-new V60 estate in Geneva, which now mirrors its bigger brother the V90.
It is built on the brand’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform which underpins the new XC60 and 90 Series cars.
An S60 saloon version will debut in the summer.
The V60 enjoys the same luxurious yet simplistic interior as the rest of the new range, plus Volvo’s latest driver support systems and safety technology.
Customers can choose from two petrol, two diesel and two plug-in hybrid powertrains.
In a first for the segment, the new V60 will be available via Volvo Cars’ new premium subscription service Care by Volvo, which offers car access via a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than ownership.
Reinforcing Volvo’s commitment to safety is a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver support systems known from the 90 Series and XC60.
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 80MPH – 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’s 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.
