This is the new 2018 Volvo V60 estate

Lex Kerssemakers, a Volvo senior vice president, confirmed in an interview with Roadshow that the new S60 will be coming soon. The new V60 basically looks like a shrunken, if slightly sharper, V90 - not exactly shocking but no bad thing either.

As we've come to expect from Volvo, there's comprehensive safety kit on board. Many left Sweden sporting a five-door station wagon body, exclusively with fuel-injected engines for the United States.

We had our own mini reveal of the 2018 Volvo V60 a few days ago when official photos of Volvo's new 60 Series Estate leaked out a bit early.

The new V60 improves on the old car's surprisingly tight cargo area to the tune of 29.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat compared to 28 cubes for the 2018 model. 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). The T6 adds a mild hybrid to the T5 engine, while the T8 tacks on two electric motors to boost performance (although with some weight penalty).

As Volvo has built a reputation for building some of the safest cars in the world, it has fitted the V60 with City Safety with Autobrake - which uses autonomous emergency braking and hazard detection systems - and Pilot Assist, which can reduce driver fatigue as the auto can perform all major driving functions by itself at speeds up to 80mph on well-marked roads.


The new Volvo V60 is also 117mm longer than the XC60, measuring 4,761mm, while the wheelbase is 2,872mm.

Volvo is renowned for its supreme safety tech, so it comes as no surprise that the V60 is equipped with all manner of hi-tech driver assists.

The vehicle will also feature the company's Sensus infotainment system, which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. Introducing the much anticipated, all-new, 2019 Volvo V60!

When announcing the launch of the new wagon, Volvo Cars CEO HÃ¥kan Samuelsson stated; "The family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations". On well-marked roads, semi-autonomous steering, acceleration, and braking is possible up to 80 miles per hour.
