Volvo's new V60 wagon is more than just the V90's mini-me, it's a truly competitive European luxury wagon. High on looks, value and practicality this Volvo should be on your shopping list. It's also worth noting that Volvo is one of the few brands that remains dedicated to the station wagon format. If you're looking for an on-road focused European wagon with a price tag that won't break the bank, this is pretty much it now that BMW has killed the 3-Series wagon for America.

      Did Volvo improve the AWD?

      I adore these seats with regard to the cloth and it's design. It's disheartening to hear they aren't that comfy. Love the looks of this wagon for sure. Great review as always Alex!

      It's different, but I'd definitely cross-shop this against the Kia Stinger. Then, I'd probably bail and buy a $15k Equus with massaging seats.

      Nice Professional,and informative review. At first glance it seems like a nice wagon with some good things going for it. But the more info you gave the more it seemed overly complicated for my taste. I believe I would prefer just a little bit simpler,and maybe abit less Fashionable in return for more practicality.Although it does sound like it has excellent power and MPG.

      I had a 2015 V60 redesign and while I loved it it fell short in many levels. I wanted to get the new V60 but found the infotainment thing to be slow and complicated. Also the 6 cylinder was dropped in place of a 4. I prefer the smoothness of a 6 cylinder. So I switched to BMW. But it's a shame we can't get more wagons in North America such as Audi a6 wagon or bmw 5 series wagon - even if you want one you can't special order it in - which is bizarre. Kudos to Mercedes for keeping the e63 - low volume seller but they obviously care about meeting their customers needs.

      I'd love a 4x4 wagon. My budget drives me to the Outback. I'm a Subaru fan since a boy, but I would love to have a little more power and fun in the Outback. I just hope the 2020 will have a turbo

      If you haven't driven one they ride really nice and handle fairly good. The $10,000 discount is icing on the cake.

      Loved the U.S. wagon market comparison at the end. I was in the market for an offroad-ish wagon last year, and came to nearly all the same conclusions as you. Bought an A4 Allroad, and I'm very happy.

      How confident can we be about the future support of gasoline powered Volvos if the company is saying that going forward they are going to be making only electric and hybrid models?

      What's the point of Volvo going to all 4 bangers if the t6 only gets f150 mileage.

      That eco-mode "tachometer replacement dial" looks very corny, reminiscent of Volvo's crappy dial used for their T8 PHEV models. They should just retain the normal tachometer in all cases; no reason not to, and it only makes those dials rather useless and confusing. Not sure what the engineers were thinking there. I"m also mystified as to why Volvo has stopped using an engine-coolant-temperature gauge, which is still present in the vast majority of car brands being sold; it's useful to know when the car's engine has warmed up. Omissions like this are just huge negatives for me for these new Volvos, and make me look elsewhere more than I would otherwise.

      I like the floor height of Sedans and the seating position of SUV. You can call it a CUV. And example of which is Kia Rondo 2007~2012.
      I hope automakers move away from sedans and wagons and move towards CUV, which is not only more practical than SUV, but also drives better.
      I love my 2008 Kia Rondo. Everytime I go to test other vehicles, I always conclude my Rondo is just perfect.

      Curiously, in the US, automakers are pretty much abandoning the production of sedans and coupes because they claim buyers only want SUVs and "crossovers".... which are basically wagons.

      Fantastic wagon. Can be ordered online! And you don' have to wait months and months like you do with the XC40.

      They are NOT headrests,they are head restraints to protect head in a crash ,fixed because that is the
      Position which works. You don't realise the LED running lights are shaped as the Swedish Thor hammer! Who cares about BMW, this is about the Volvo 👍

      Headrest is a generally accepted industry term. Clearly fixed locations are not required because Volvo uses an adjustable design in the XC40 and will also feature them on other small cars.

      Believe it or not but here in Sweden/Europe we also “red brake light” instead of “amber brake lights” but we have orange rear indicators (rear indicators are not the same as brake lights in Europe/ Sweden).

      Here we have the main problem with the S60.






      As a Swed i wonder why the F*ck would you buy it when the V60 exists?

      And the comparing the V60 to that shit box Buick Opel thing made me laugh so hard that I cried, what a F*cking joke!
      It was a joke right? Otherwise it would have been a F*cking insult to all Sweds (my self included).

      Excellent review, as always. I, too, want Volvo to offer the V60 in the T8 trim in the US. Glad to see that I can get a wagon without the body-cladding and added height of the Allroad and Cross-Country.
