2019 Volvo V60 Design
Revealed in a domestic driveway in Stockholm, Sweden, the V60 shares the Scalable Product Architecture that supports its SUV cousins, in addition to the V90 wagon. Naturally, the midsize V60 is smaller sized than its larger V cousin, however larger than its predecessor– in the mantra of the 1950s, longer, lower, and larger.
The dimensional boosts are substantial: the wheelbase extends 4 inches, to 113.1, and total length (187.4 inches) is nearly 5 inches more than the previous model. Width broadens by an inch, and the roofline is down 2 inches plus.
Expanded dimensions amount to more rear seat legroom and broadened freight capability, 30 cubic feet behind the second-row seat, 48 with the rear seats folded flat, boosts of 2 and 4 cubic feet, respectively. The rear seatback divides 60/40.
Styling echoes the V90, slick, modern, and perhaps much more enticing in this a little smaller sized scale. The angular front fascia, increasing character lines on the sides, sloping rear roofline, and large position offer the wagon a stylish appearance, improved by Volvo’s signature LED light setup.
The Volvo style group defines the appearance of the light selection as “Thor’s Hammer.” Nordic folklore electrically perpetuated. The emphasize of the upgraded interior is Volvo’s brand new Sensus infotainment system, consisting of to name a few features 4G connectivity, navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and premium audio.
