2019 Volvo V60: Are These The First Official Photos?

A pair of low-resolution images have emerged online, reportedly showing the new Volvo V60 ahead of its global debut on February 21.

Initially published, but since deleted, by AutoMotoSvijet out of Bosnia and Herzegovina, the allegedly official pictures suggest that the Volvo V60 will share many design similarities with the larger V90. In fact, it looks almost identical to its older sibling from some angles, albeit on a slightly smaller scale.

Consequently, the wagon includes Volvo’s familiar Thor’s hammer headlights as well as taillights which reach up the D-pillars towards the roof. The example pictured also has a small lip spoiler extending off the roof, twin five-spoke silver wheels, and a premium-looking bronze paint scheme.

Underpinning the latest-generation Volvo V60 will be the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) as the V90 and XC60.

A selection of engines will be on offer. Sitting at the lower end of the range will be at least two 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesels and one four-cylinder petrol. A small hybrid with a 1.5-liter three-cylinder, electric motor, and battery pack is also possible. Topping out the range will be a T8 PHEV variant delivering around 400 hp. It’ll aim to tackle the Audi S4 and Mercedes-AMG C43.

Not long after the Volvo V60 celebrates its public launch at the Geneva Motor Show, the Swedish marque will follow it up with a new S60 sedan.

    Volvo S90/V90 is really nice car but in It’s segment i find more attractive cars, but speaking of S60/V60 It would be car I’d choose in terms of design. Current Volvos are really nice cars but their strongest point is good first ”wow” effect when you see and get into a car. Driving and and operating most of it’s functions via big touch screen makes It’s “wow” effect disappearing when you are looking only at this screen, not interacting with the rest of It’s nice interior. It’d still choose Tipo wagon.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      Do you even know what segment this competes in?

      • Jason Panamera

        I do. Just trolling all these people praising Fiat Tipo putting it above It’s categories, same with superb.

        • Tumbi Mtika

          Ok, good.

  • Belthronding Tinuviel

    swedish matrushka doll?

    • donald seymour

      I’m so with you. I was so confuse at what I was looking at. The only design trait which differs from one another is that slight slope.


    basically V90 short wheelbase

  • ErnieB

    I admit.. I am a bit of a Volvo fanboy so to me this is a beautiful car.

  • Tumbi Mtika

    I like the more angular styling of this.

  • TheHake

    Dayum that looks good!

  • supermanuel

    Good looking wagon. I’m interested to see how they handle the rear lights on the forthcoming S60. Are they going to be the same as the S90?

    • Vítor

      Hopefully the S60 has a better rear than the S90

  • TrevP

    Looks great! Definitely predictable tho. Anyone could have told you it would to look like this.

  • Six_Tymes

    looking very good so far

  • Six Thousand Times

    No six? No dice.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      You’re coming to that conclusion NOW?

      • Six Thousand Times

        Nope, been my belief for yonks.

  • Dan Facciolo

    Great looking car! I would have liked the roofline to slope more towards the C pillar, but it is definitely a much better design than that of the V90. Can’t wait to see what the new S60 is going to look like.

  • Jason Panamera

    Volvo design is no secret to anyone and It’s no bigger secret how S60/V60 will look like as we seen already XC60.
