Review of the 2015 Volvo V60

  • A stylish luxury sport wagon, the 2015 Volvo V60 returns the Swedish automaker to a segment where it was once a ubiquitous presence. The V60's promising performance and utility should make it a tempting alternative to German luxury wagons.

  • Safety | Reliability
  • Pros

    Base model's new, more efficient engine and transmission; Volvo's traditional balance of ride and handling; should deliver superb crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Generous, but not exceptional, cargo space; must opt for AWD to get full range of engines.

  • What's New for 2015

    The 2015 Volvo V60 is a new vehicle for the U.S. market.

Good as a sportswagon gets...

Vehicle: 2015 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design 4dr Wagon AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)

If you want a wagon that goes fast, handles very well, and is still a great daily driver, it doesn't get any better than this. If you want to spend twice as much, you can get the rocket ship which is the E63 AMG wagon, but it is a much larger car. If you want the odd styling a Cadillac CTS-V, you'll get a car that's probably more fun and is certainly faster, but I didn't find it nearly as comfortable as the Volvo V60 R-Design. This car is the perfect 20-year sequel to the 1995 Volvo 850 T-5R less a bit of boot space. Unlike the T-5R, it rides comfortably (no crash-iness), has All-Wheel-Drive, and isn't just fast by 20-year-old standards.




Volvo hit a home run

Vehicle: 2015 Volvo V60 T5 4dr Wagon AWD (2.5L 5cyl Turbo 6A)

What value for the money! I didn't have to pay big money for this ride. The car handles beautifully and is fun to drive. After having driven the XC 90 and V 70 AWD models for the past 10 + years --- I found the V 60 gives me the same satisfaction of ownership at a much lower price.

What's New for 2015

The 2015 Volvo V60 is a new vehicle for the U.S. market.

Introduction

Already a fixture on European roads for a few years, the Volvo V60 is coming to the United States. The 2015 V60 looks to revive Volvo's long tradition of selling wagons to American families, a legacy that looked final when the automaker pulled the compact V50 and larger V70 wagons from the U.S. a few years ago. For awhile, the XC70, with its body cladding and off-road attitude, represented Volvo's only U.S. wagon offering.

The V60 might change all that. It's larger than the V50, but 7 inches shorter and 10 inches narrower than the V70. The front-wheel-drive base model V60 will use a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine generating 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, the turbo-4 will accelerate the V60 from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. Volvo says it will also return 29 mpg in combined driving.

Opting for an all-wheel-drive V60 offers a choice of two engines familiar from the S60 sedan. A 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder delivers 250 hp and 266 lb-ft, and pulls an all-wheel-drive S60 up to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, according to Volvo's estimates. A more potent turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder, found in the S60's top R Design performance trim, delivers 325 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. Both engines pair with a six-speed automatic transmission. Estimated fuel economy is 23 mpg combined and 21 mpg combined, respectively.

Volvo hasn't divulged much on the U.S.-spec V60's features and conveniences, but a full suite of driver aids and safety features are confirmed, including adaptive cruise control, adaptive high beams that automatically dim for oncoming traffic, blind-spot monitoring, cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, parallel parking assist and collision mitigation, even pedestrian detection with automatic braking.

Creature comforts will include heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel and optional sport seats. A performance-tuned suspension and 19-inch alloy wheels will also be available. And though Volvo is trying to shed its wagon image -- executives want you to think of the V60 as a more useful S60 -- the V60's 43.8 cubic feet of cargo space should prove handy. That's more room than in a 3 Series wagon, which shares an almost identical footprint with the V60, although still well short of the Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen's cavernous 66 cubic feet.

The 2015 Volvo V60 is expected to go on sale as early as January of 2014. Pricing hasn't been announced, but expect the wagon to carry only a small premium over the $32,400 base price of the S60 sedan. Check back for a full review of the new Volvo V60, including specs, driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.
