2016 Volvo V60 Exterior

2016 Volvo V60 Overview (See Available Styles)

Volvo surprised some in the auto industry and thrilled many wagon enthusiasts when it introduced the V60 wagon as a 2015 model, injecting new life into what had been a dying market segment. For Volvo, the V60 was a return to familiar territory: Wagons were key players in its lineup for decades.

The V60 is based on the S60 sedan, seats five and has a 40/20/40-split rear seat designed for easy folding. It is available with front-wheel drive as the T5 Drive-E and with all-wheel drive as the performance-oriented R-Design, limited-edition Polestar and quasi-SUV Cross Country. Competitors include the Audi Allroad, BMW 3 Series wagon and Subaru Outback.

New for 2016
Volvo has added the crossover-like Cross Country model and will offer a small run of all-wheel-drive Polestar versions of the V60. Polestar models get a 345-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine and suspension and brake modifications.
