Volvo V60 is a compact luxury station wagon produced by Volvo and manufactured at their assembly line in Torslanda, Sweden. Its existence was first reported in a Motor Trend article citing an interview with a senior Volvo source.[1]. The new car will be based on the all new 2011 Volvo S60, which itself is based on a concept first presented at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show.

Recent Changes[]

  • The 2010 Paris Motor Show hosted Volvo's debut of the V60 R-Design. The R-Design is the Swedish firm's equivalent of BMW's M Sport or Audi's S-Line. As such, it combines sporty visual upgrades inside and out and a tweaked chassis for a sharper drive. On the outside, the R-Design treatment adds a front grille painted in glossy piano black, a more aggressive front bumper detailed in a matt black finish, a discreet boot lid spoiler (sedan) or roof spoiler (Estate) and a distinctive rear diffuser that houses twin exhaust tailpipes. A new set of unique 18-inch five-spoke alloy wheels shod in sport tires completes the list of exterior changes. Moving into the interior, the package includes a pair of body-hugging sport seats up front, special leather/textile upholstery available in off-black and ceramic light, or in an all-black, both with contrasting stitching, plus an R-Design steering wheel, gear selector, sports pedals and floor-mats. Underneath the sheetmetal, Volvo's engineers have given the V60 stiffer springs (+15%) and bushes (+20%), a lowered ride height (-15mm), new monotube dampers at the back, and a strut brace under the bonnet. The R-Design package is available throughout the range, from the 115 hp DRIVe 1.6 litre diesel to the 304 hp 3.0 litre turbocharged petrol V6.[1]
