How many good reviews sounded always against the wagon, which is manufactured by 2018-2019 Volvo. Apparently, she had not forgotten how to do it. And access to the car light, called 2018-2019 Volvo V60 another confirmation.
Debut model was held back in 2010, and updated it three years later. Strange, but in Russia it is quite modest rates of sales of the station wagon, while in Europe – is one of the most popular cars in this body today.
Anyway, the car I want to explore. Moreover, now it is available in two variations. Namely, as a version of the classic motors, and hybrid, which has its own name – Plug-In Hybrid. The difference is, in fact, only in the technical specifications. The rest, except for a minor detail, it’s the same machine. Because consider and study their possible as a single unit.
At 2018-2019 Volvo B60 can not be traced notes of a purely family, measured vehicle. Versatile looks defiantly, aggressively sporty. And it is, apparently, and has attracted admirers of high-quality European wagons.
The front part is decorated with a stylish and quite a large optics. The inverted trapezoid grille trim is ideally complemented by chrome struts and brand nameplates Swedish company. Powerful bumper, subtle touches fog lamps, aerodynamic elements, the lines of the body make it clear that this is not just a family wagon, and very elegantly designed car designers.
Side view opens eyes to the powerful, solid car with a massive stern, a long bonnet, large and comfortable landing doors, the right radius of the wheel arches and the roofline dropdown.
The back has a stylish, sporting tips on the exhaust system under the bumper, a large tailgate, complete with stop sign on the “visor”, the elegant optics and traditional inscription “the 2018-2019 Volvo” on the bar under the glass of a luggage compartment.
Despite the seemingly impressive size, in fact, it was quite compact wagon that has almost identical dimensions with sedan the S60 . Thus, the dimensions at the wagon as a result are:
- length – 4635 mm
- width – 1865 millimeters
- height – 1484 mm
- wheelbase – 2776 mm

Let’s start with the fact that the interior of the wagon have made in strict accordance with the sedan and the hybrid version, respectively, with both copied.
That is, all three models have the same interior design.
Is that the rear seats have a few wagons modified and added minor component compared to the S60.
Comfortable front seats with pronounced lateral support, a comfortable and anatomically correct multi-function steering wheel, instrument panel modern, rigorous, yet interesting center console with controls Media and climatic equipment.
We can say that at the salon wagon 2018-2019 Volvo V60 and V60 Plug-In Hybrid came out slightly better than that of the sedan counterpart. This is because the back was much more room should be head and landing in the salon simplified by installing a larger, more convenient doorways.
Classic touring in the normal position has a volume of 430 liters in the trunk, or 1241 liters with the rear seatbacks folded. Alas, the hybrid version that can not boast, since the installation of the batteries led to a reduction in the space.
In the versatile 2018-2019 Volvo B60 fairly extensive set of options that are included in the basic and additional equipment. Here are some basic components:

Unfortunately, it will be possible to buy it only in two major cities. This, of course, Moscow and St. Petersburg. The price will be started with a mark of 2.96 million rubles. As you can imagine, the pleasure is not cheap.
Let’s start with the classic motors. For 2018-2019 Volvo B60 provides just nine engines, five of which operate on gasoline, and four – on diesel fuel. Each of the engines has a turbo, but the extent of forcing different.
