The Volvo V60 wagon is not what you remember from Volvo’s wagons from the past. No more boxy lines and slow-moving driving experience. Debuted last year, it delivers ample power and sleek styling with super comfy seats and comforting safety features, two of Volvo’s trademarks. Great balance for a sports sedan feels with the practicality and utility of a wagon. The entry level T5 and its AWD has been discontinued. This is the biggest change there is. This suppression leaves consumers with 2 clear choices—the FWD T5 Drive-E with its four cylinder engine, or the T6 AWD R-Design with its 6-cylinder. A Platinum upgrade is available for both trims. The T6 AWD R-Design comes in a special-order Polestar edition tool. There’s also some optional package reconfiguring, but otherwise the 2016 V60 is the same vehicle that came out last year. The V60 is based on Volvo’s S60 sedan. The similarities are obvious on the front. They share character lines on the hood rising from the grille and the angled headlamps. These lines begin the wedge shape -characteristic of the V60- that flows all the way to the rear. There, a steeply raked back window gives the wagon a coupe-like appearance. It’s a distant way from the boxy Volvo wagons of the 80’s. The T5 Drive-E is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that puts out 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque, which is sent to the front wheels by an 8-speed automatic transmission. The T5 Drive-E gets mileage estimates of 25/37/29 mpg so it is definitely the one to pick if you’re looking for efficiency. The T6 AWD R-Design offers 325hp, definitely more power and 354 lb-ft of torque. This is due to its turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. This setting makes the car thirsty taking a blow on the fuel efficiency department, with 18/27/21 mpg. All V60 models can be driven in Normal, Sport or ECO+ mode. The ECO+ boosts efficiency with its start/stop technology, that shuts down engine as car comes to a stop (handy in dense traffic) and ECO-coast (the engine “brake” is disengaged and the engine speed drops to zero when the accelerator is released), and ECO-climate which disconnects the air conditioning compressor. The Polestar edition comes with all the T6 AWD R-Design and Platinum features, and then adds 20-inch alloy wheels, a performance-tuned suspension, bigger front brakes, paddle shifters, aerodynamic body kit, and sport-turned engine.
