Volvo has opened the order books for the all-new 2018 V60 Estate car in the UK.
Prices for the car start at £31,810 for the D3 Momentum manual version.
It is built on the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) as the award-winning XC60 SUV.
There is a choice of three 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engines from launch including the D3 and D4 diesels, and a T5 petrol.
All of these cars will be available in front wheel drive and the diesel powertrains will come mated to a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox, while the petrol comes with the eight-speed automatic as standard.
The D3 offers 150hp, combined fuel consumption of up to 64.2mpg and CO2 emissions from just 117g/km while the D4 comes with 190hp, combined fuel consumption of up to 64.0mpg and CO2 emissions also from just 117g/km. The 250hp T5’s numbers are from 43.7mpg and 150g/km respectively.
Later down the line two petrol-electric plug-in Twin Engine hybrids and a second petrol engine are likely to be available within the next 12 months.
Much like the rest of the Volvo range the V60 boasts class-leading safety systems includes the City Safety package, which included automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection, and steering support.
Entry-level Momentum versions come with LED headlights, a powered tailgate, two-zone climate control with ‘CleanZone’ air-quality system, a 12.3-inch driver’s information display and rear parking sensors as standard.
The central nine-inch portrait-style screen works in conjunction with voice-activation technology which assists with the car’s infotainment, convenience and safety systems.
Building upon the Momentum models, the Inscription model comes with leather-faced upholstery, powered front seats with memory function, front parking sensors, Drift Wood interior inlays and chrome exterior trim.
Momentum Pro brings leather-faced upholstery, a head-up display in the windscreen, active bending LED headlights with adaptive shadow technology, handsfree opening for the powered tailgate, and heated front seats and a heated steering wheel.
Inscription Pro gets these, along with Nappa soft leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and 19” alloy wheels.
The car also comes with Volvo’s Pilot Assist, their advanced semi-autonomous driver aid, which assists with the steering (up to 80mph) and controls the acceleration and braking required to keep the car safely within lane markings.
The On Call app is also available and fitted to every different model which allows you to control carries functions of your car from you smartphone or smartwatch. This includes setting the satellite navigation system or heat or cool the cabin of the car.
Jon Wakefield, Volvo Car UK’s Managing Director, said: “The new V60 offers stunning looks and class-leading space and practicality, combined with Volvo desirability and quality.
“With its competitive prices, luxurious equipment levels and cutting-edge technology, it is sure to be a hit with company car drivers and private buyers alike.”
