V60 prices announced

The new Volvo V60 premium mid-size estate is now available to order in the UK, with on-the-road prices starting at £31,810 for the D3 Momentum manual version.

A choice of three 2.0-litre, four-cylinder engines is initially offered – D3 and D4 diesels, and a T5 petrol. Two petrol-electric plug-in Twin Engine hybrids and a second petrol engine are likely to be available within the next 12 months.

The D3, D4 and T5 V60s are all front-wheel drive. Both diesel engines are available with a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox, while the petrol comes with the eight-speed automatic as standard. The D3 offers 150PS, combined fuel consumption of up to 64.2mpg and emissions from 117g/km. The D4 has 190PS, combined fuel consumption of up to 64.0mpg and CO2 emissions of 117g/km. The 250PS T5's numbers are from 43.7mpg and 150g/km respectively.

Every V60 is generously equipped as standard. Even entry-level Momentum versions come with LED headlights, a powered tailgate, two-zone climate control with 'CleanZone' air-quality system, a 12.3-inch driver's information display and rear parking sensors.

Volvo's Sensus touch screen control system is also standard. This nine-inch portrait-style screen works in conjunction with sophisticated voice-activated control technology to provide access to the car's infotainment, convenience and safety systems. It includes satellite navigation with lifetime map updates, along with access to a range of cloud-based apps such as Spotify, TuneIn, Google Local Search and Yelp.

The Volvo On Call connected services platform is fitted to every model. This service allows you to control various functions of your car from your smartphone or smartwatch, including the ability to set the satellite navigation system and heat or cool the cabin before you even get in the car. You can also download trip information for the past 100 days, which is perfect for business users claiming fuel expenses.

As you'd expect from a Volvo, the V60 comes with a full suite of cutting-edge safety aids. These include City Safety, which brings automatic emergency braking with pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection, and steering support to help you steer around an object in an emergency. It also features the world-first application of automatic braking to help avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle.

Inscription models are the most luxurious V60s. Additional highlights, on top of the already generous Momentum specification, include leather-faced upholstery, powered front seats with memory function, front parking sensors, Drift Wood interior inlays and chrome exterior trim.

Both Momentum and Inscription versions are also available in highly specified Pro form. Momentum Pro brings leather-faced upholstery, a head-up display in the windscreen, active bending LED headlights with adaptive shadow technology, handsfree opening for the powered tailgate, and heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Inscription Pro gets these, along with Nappa soft leather upholstery, ventilated front seats and 19-inch alloy wheels.
