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.
