Volvo V60 for 2019 – Volvo V90 wagon’s little brother
The new Volvo wagon in the V60 (V60 Volvo) was officially unveiled on February 21, 2018 ahead of the world premiere in Geneva, ahead of the debut of the new generation Volvo S60 sedan. In our review of the new Volvo V60 for 2018-2019 – the cost of equipment, photos and videos, technical specifications of the 2nd generation of the Swedish station wagon. The new generation "shestidesyati" after moving to a modular platform, SPA has acquired not only diesel and gasoline engines, but also several hybrid versions (340-horsepower T6 with two engines and 390 horsepower T8 with two engines) and is preparing to enter the global market at the beginning autumn 2018. Pricefor a Volvo V60 station wagon in Europe it will be between 40,100 euros for a diesel 150-horsepower version of the Volvo V60 on the D3 from 49,500 euros for a petrol on the 310-horsepower version of the Volvo V60 on the T6. Recently, the "shestidesyati" station wagon will not be officially sold, Russian drivers must wait for the new generation Volvo S60 sedan and the Volvo V60 off-road station wagon on the cross-country.
Creating a new generation of the Volvo V60 station wagon on the designers of the Swedish manufacturer was not implemented for two, but three birds with one stone.
- First, the "shestidesyati" should look like Volvo’s big brother V90 wagon.
- Secondly, to demonstrate the relationship with the new Volvo XC60 crossover.
- Thirdly, to have your own original way.
In the end, we have a kind of symbiosis of the Volvo V90 in the Volvo XC60 and something new. But to be honest, the new car’s V60 looks like the V90’s little brother. There is a stylish and striking front end of the vehicle, finished with Thor’s signature headlights, a compact grille with a large Volvo logo and a bumper with a pronounced lip.
Side type five-door body model looks organic and dynamic. In the presence of a long hood, huge wheel arch cutouts, doors with a high window sill, a compact and powerful relief, almost flat roofs, a solid stern with rear fenders, complemented by a magnificent blow.
The back of the station wagon received large, wide taillights with LED content, a right-hand rectangle rear door with compact glass, crowned by a spoiler and a massive bumper with bright aerodynamic elements.
I would like to add on my own that the new Volvo V60 wagon on, as well as other modern models from the Swedish manufacturer, looks expensive and chic. This new product clearly demonstrates the commitment to the corporate style of the brand.

Add to the trunk arsenal underground, the amount of which is not taken into account by the manufacturer and the trunk servo.
