All-New Volvo V60 Priced From £31,810 In UK, Deliveries Late Q3 2018

Buyers in Britain looking for a stylish premium estate can now order the all-new Volvo V60, where spending £31,810 ($42,858) will land you the entry-level D3 Momentum version with a manual gearbox.

A choice of three 2.0-liter four-cylinder units will be on hand initially, as the D3 and D4 diesels are joined by a T5 petrol. Within the next 12 months, two petrol-electric plug-in hybrids and another petrol engine will join the range.

“The new V60 offers stunning looks and class-leading space and practicality, combined with Volvo desirability and quality. With its competitive prices, luxurious equipment levels and cutting-edge technology, it is sure to be a hit with company car drivers and private buyers alike,” stated Volvo UK managing director, Jon Wakefield.

Both diesels can be ordered with either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic, whereas the T5 petrol comes with the eight-speed auto as standard. The D3 offers 150 PS (148 HP) and a combined fuel consumption of 64.2 mpg (4.40 l/100km), whereas the D4 is good for 190 PS (187 HP) and will return 64.0 mpg (4.41 l/100km). As for the T5, it has 250 PS (246 HP) and will average 43.7 mpg (6.46 l/100 km).

Plenty of standard gear across the range

Standard equipment on entry-level Momentum models includes LED headlights, powered tailgate, two-zone climate control with ‘CleanZone’ air-quality system, a 12.3-inch driver’s information display and rear parking sensors. A 9-inch portrait-style touchscreen is also standard, featuring the automaker’s Sensus infotainment system.

Inscription models on the other hand get leather upholstery, powered front seats with memory function, front parking sensors, Drift Wood interior inlays and chrome exterior trim.

Both specs can also be had in the highly specified Pro trim, where Momentum Pro adds leather, a head-up display, active bending LED headlights with adaptive shadow technology, hands-free powered tailgate, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, whereas Inscription Pro already has all that, plus Nappa leather, ventilated front seats and 19-inch alloys.

Every V60 can be equipped with the optional Xenium package (£2,000 on Momentum and £1,800 on Inscription and Inscription Pro), adding the powered tilt and slide panoramic glass sunroof, a 360-degree surround-view parking camera system and Park Assist Pilot. Furthermore, a Harman Kardon premium sound system is available at £825, boasting 14 speakers and a total output of 600W. If that’s not enough, buyers can get the more expensive (£2,500) Bowers & Wilkins system, with 15 speakers and 1,100W.

The new Volvo V60 is available to order now, although first UK deliveries won’t take place until later this summer.
