Volvo V60 official details revealed and now comes with advanced tech

Last week, we shared with you some leaked images of Volvo's latest compact wagon with promises that an official launch was scheduled this week.

Of course, just like the rest of Volvo's current lineup, the V60 is absolutely stunning, incorporating an overall shape that pleasingly resembles its big sister, the V90. Volvo tells us it's the only system on the market that's capable of recognising pedestrians, cyclists and animals.

In the meantime, Volvo will be showcasing the new V60 at Geneva next month.

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. There will also be regular petrol and diesel engines. Two trim levels have been announced for the T6 AWD - Momentum is standard fare, or customers can opt for the more luxurious Inscription trim. It uses the T5, front-drive turbocharged engine in combination with a lithium ion battery that drives the rear wheels.

A second version of the T6 is also expected for the US market, and it will introduce a new plug-in hybrid powertrain to Americans. Total system output for the plug-in T6 AWD drivetrain is 340 hp and 435 lb. -ft. of torque, with a fully electric driving range of about 28 miles. Introducing the much anticipated, all-new, 2019 Volvo V60!

This is Volvo so there's plenty of safety stuff on offer including City Safre with Autobrake, Pilot Assist, Run-ff Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Cross TRaffic Alert.

Volvo has revealed its all-new V60 estate, a rival to premium estates like the Audi A4 Avant, Mercedes C-Class Estate and BMW 3 Series Touring.

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.

Inside, the V60 follows the automaker's simple, elegant approach with a vertically arrayed touchscreen for infotainment (including standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) and sparse controls. "The V60 really is the central point of the Volvo brand", said Robin Page, Senior Vice President Design at Volvo Cars. On well-marked roads, semi-autonomous steering, acceleration, and braking is possible up to 80 miles per hour.
