2019 Volvo V60 Coming To U.S. Early Next Year From $38,900

Volvo might have said that it won’t have any actual cars on display at the LA Auto Show, but it actually did – the second-generation V60 wagon. Not only that, but it also told us how much it will cost in the U.S. market.

The BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon rival starts at $38,900, excluding a $995 destination charge. The price corresponds to the base V60 T5 FWD model in Momentum trim level. The V6 T6 AWD Momentum is priced from $43,400. The base T5 powertrain is a 2.0-liter turbocharged Drive-E gasoline engine that produces 250 hp and 258 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque.

The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the front wheels. Customers who want their V60 with all-wheel drive are forced to upgrade to the T6 engine that comes with standard AWD.

It’s still a 2.0-liter gasoline engine but it features both turbocharging and supercharging for a total of 316 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. In this case, the same eight-speed auto is linked to an AWD system.

The entry-level Momentum grade comes standard with LED headlights, panoramic moonroof, the Sensus Connect touchscreen interface, and an exclusive city-weave textile interior. Momentum also brings a suite of standard driver assistance features. Those are highlighted by City Safety which helps mitigate or prevent accidents at intersections and with pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.

The mid-range R-Design (from $43,900) brings a more dynamic appearance courtesy of gloss black window trim, mirror caps, and front grille. Interior upgrades include the Nappa leather sports seats with open grid textile, heated and perforated leather steering wheel with gearshift paddles, and leather-wrapped gear shifter.

Finally, the range-topping Inscription grade adds bright chrome window trim and front grille accents on the outside for a more luxurious look. Inside, it brings driftwood inlays, leather comfort seats with four-way lumbar and power cushion extensions, and four-zone electric climate control, among many other things.

The first units of the mid-size premium wagon will arrive in U.S. dealerships in early 2019. The V60 will be offered exclusively via customer order production to allow customers to fully customize their vehicle.

    still don’t like the gear shift knob… doesn’t fit the overall design.
    the electronic one found in hybrid trim is much better.

    great way to sell low volume cars, don’t straddle dealers with inventory that may prove difficult to shift and deliver to customers a vehicle that meets all their specifications. now, can the USA please allow passenger car rear windows to be tinted like their crossover/suv/truck brethren?

  • VERY NICE.

    A win for Volvo, just like the XC90. It might single-handedly start a wagon revival in the US …
