Volvo V60 official details revealed and now comes with advanced tech

Inside the V60 feels upmarket and solid. It should be a durable family wagon

It is assumed that Volvo V60 will be built on a modular platform SPA.

Expect to see the new and improved Volvo S60 this summer.

In the United States, the V60 will be available with T5 FWD, producing 250hp and T6 AWD powertrains with 316hp.

Prices for the V60 will start at £31,810 for the manual D3 model in Momentum trim; a full run-down of prices and trim levels has not yet been revealed. Those are figures that mirror what's found under the hood of the automaker's XC60 crossover that's on sale now in the U.S. The T6 adds a mild hybrid to the T5 engine, while the T8 tacks on two electric motors to boost performance (although with some weight penalty). Volvo has hinted that an off-road-styled V60 Cross Country will likely follow.

The new V60 was launched in its natural habitat - the driveway of a family home in Stockholm - "highlighting Volvo Cars' pedigree in family estates and pinpointing how the V60's versatile design caters to the diverse needs and realities of modern family life".

Underneath its sleek styling, the V60 is essentially a shrunken V90 wagon.

Volvo also includes the latest version of its Sensus infotainment system in the new V60. It'll also get Volvo's new design language, looking nearly identical to the 90 series models, with "Thor's Hammer" LED headlights, L-shaped rear lights and sharp styling cues.

It has a built-in 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both on board. Certain markets will be offered a unique plaid upholstery, but Volvo has not yet detailed specifics for the North American market.

And since wagons are all about versatility without suffering from the bulkiness of an SUV, you will be happy to know that the V60's boot and under floor storage compartment swallows 18.7 cubic feet of your stuff, but can be extended to 29.6/48.1 ft³ by kindly asking your occupants to take the bus.

As Volvo has built a reputation for building some of the safest cars in the world, it has fitted the V60 with City Safety with Autobrake - which uses autonomous emergency braking and hazard detection systems - and Pilot Assist, which can reduce driver fatigue as the vehicle can perform all major driving functions by itself at speeds up to 80mph on well-marked roads.
