The Volvo V60 is an exciting new entrant for the Swedish luxury brand.
This core Volvo model was initially left off the American price sheets in favor of the much larger V70 and XC70 Cross Country, but Volvo has now come to its senses!
What the V60 offers is the mid-size package from the S60 sedan, including all the latest styling updates and tech enhancements inside.
The R-Design’s new T6 engine promises about 304 horsepower and a ~5.7-second sprint to 60 mph, while the Polestar could bring up to 375 horsepower for a sub-5-second sprint time.
Polestars come with AWD as standard.
Even more promising: the V60 in Europe is currently sold with a variety of Drive-E hybrid and plug-in hybrid solutions, indicating some of these technologies may be coming to America in the next few years.
