Volvo V60 details:
Is the Volvo V60 the best looking load lugger in its class? From the back, quite possibly it's the prettiest big-booted vehicle Volvo has ever made. There are hints of the Volvo C30 hatchback from the back, with a large glass display that almost looks like a tailgate on its own, and the side profile shares the coupe-like exterior of the Volvo V60's saloon brother, the S60. Compared to the stout sides, the Volvo V60's nose looks a little severe but as a whole the Volvo V60 stands out ahead of its competitors.
There's a lot of of room for occupants in the Volvo V60, and despite the car's swooping coupe-like roofline, both headroom and visibility is very good. Volvo has even managed to find around 20mm extra for back passenger legroom. The boot measures in at 430 litres, and the tailgate opens with a high sweep to reveal a flat floor with some add-on underfloor cargo. It's, however, significantly smaller than the Ford Mondeo Estate's 542 litres. All three back seatings can fold separately to create a flat load space, and the front passenger bench folds to create an even longer flat load space.
The Volvo V60's equipment levels eclipses those of its German competitors. There are three versions: ES, SE and SE Lux. All models include a trip computer, cruise control, a 5-inch colour display, powerful audio system with helm-mounted controls and 16-inch alloy wheel. The SE adds various dashboard trim, a leather helm, automatic headlights, wipers and dimming back view mirror, park sensors and 17-inch alloys. The SE Lux adds electric leather seatings, bending-beam headlights and headlamp washers.
