New Volvo V60 breaks cover

New Volvo V60 breaks cover

The T5, T6, and T8 engines will also make their way into the new wagon; however, these engines have been revised in order to give the V60 unique performance numbers. The new V60 comes with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options, including a T6 Twin Engine AWD setup that generates 340 horsepower (253 kilowatts), and a T8 Twin Engine AWD setup that delivers 390 hp (290 kW) and 472 pound-feet (639 Newton-meters) of torque.

Are you a Volvo loyalist excited by the new V60? And with the debut of the redesigned 2019 Volvo V60, the company shows it's as serious as ever about this particular breed, and even more serious about redefining its image as an upscale automaker. Inside, the new V60 boasts increased space, solving a key problem with the previous model, and the cabin is upgraded with more upscale materials.

The new 2018 Volvo V60 estate - the second of Volvo's new 60 Series models - is revealed in Sweden with looks which echo those of the bigger V90, but with cues from the new XC60. The good news is that the new S60's debut isn't too far away, since Volvo has confirmed that it will debut this summer. Nothing has yet been said about electric range.

Naturally, the new V60 will also major on safety with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, making it one of the safest cars on the road. While South Carolina may seem like a odd location for a debut, it makes sense - Volvo's new American manufacturing facility is located in Berkeley County.

The Pilot Assist system - which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 80 miles per hour - has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The new V60 will be available to purchase using Volvo's premium subscription service Care by Volvo, where you pay a monthly flat fee to access the auto rather than own it. Pricing hasn't been announced yet, but customer deliveries are expected to start in September. Other standard safety features include drowsy driver monitoring and oncoming lane alert systems.

The array of safety technology offered will match other latest-generation Volvos. Drivers use a vertically oriented, tablet-style screen to control the various vehicle, infotainment, and connected service functions. "The new V60 honors that tradition, but also takes it much further".
