Model Highlight: Volvo V60 – Redefining the Wagon

Known for its excellent practicality but questionable style, the station wagon was once a staple of suburban family life. But, for the better part of two decades, wagons have since been replaced by crossover SUVs as the preferred grocery go-getting of Evanston and Schaumburg families. However, the larger dimensions of utility vehicles can affect their handling and ability to maneuver in tight spaces.

With the V60 wagon, Volvo seeks to dispel the notion that a wagon can't be stylish, luxurious, and fun to drive. Blending crossover utility and sedan-like handling, the V60 is perfect for smaller families who want the best of both worlds. Here are a few things we like best about the V60 Wagon.

  • Robust Performance: Under the hood, the Volvo V60 packs more power than one may expect from a wagon. The V60's athletic aesthetic is supported by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Power runs to the front wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

  • Cross Country Variant: The Volvo V60 Cross Country includes all-wheel drive as standard equipment. It also features extra body cladding, higher ride height, and three inches more ground clearance than the standard V60 wagon.

  • Well Equipped: The base Momentum trim level includes a wide array of standard amenities, like 18-inch wheels, automatic LED headlights, heated and rain-sensing wipers, roof rails, a hands-free tailgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable leather seats, a panoramic sunroof, 9-inch Sensus infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

     

    Several advanced driver-assistance systems also come standard, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, run-off-road mitigation, cross-traffic collision mitigation, and more.
