Volvo has pledged and officially unveiled the new generation of its 2019 Volvo V60, and the public premier will be held at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new generation of this model is based on the SPA platform, and the new Volvo V60 sets new standards in the mid-premium segment, as it has a handful of new technologies. And the design of the interior and exterior had the biggest impact of the larger V90. Overall, the result is a sleek, technically advanced, luxurious and practical car that should represent a serious competition to the German premium triple.
Starting from the outside and already at first glance we will see that the new 2019 Volvo V60 is somewhat smaller than the V90. These are actually designer tricks so this does not mean that it is so. The new Volvo V60 is 117 mm longer than the XC60, and is now 4,761 mm long, while the wheelbase is 2,872 mm.
The new V60 2019 will have the same design lines as the V40 and V90 models. The front part will be dominated by a large, wide mask (grid), which will be on the left side of the headlights with the famous design of the company, which it calls “Toro hammer”. Observed from the side, we see that this model will have a panoramic roof, as well as silver “roof rails” and distinctive back lights.
If you make a comparison, there may be some differences, such as a smaller window on the rear door. The spoiler in the luggage compartment has more aggressive lines. The V90 has taken the rear bumper and light, so they are similar in that respect. The similarity profile is large and the difference is in the C-pillar and the last window that we said. The luggage carrier with its aggressive lines is not as elegant as it is with the predecessor.
In accordance with the outer design, this should also be interior. Thanks to these dimensions, more space was available in the cabin as well as in the boot, which now amounts to 529 liters with the rear seats in place, while, when it descends, the volume increases to 841 liters. These V60s are placed in front of direct competitors coming from BMW, Audi and Mercedes.
Interior design was largely influenced by the XC60 cab design. Therefore, we expect the Scandinavian design in combination with quality materials. 2019 Volvo V60 model also features a large screen infotainment system, compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay platforms.
The V60 Volvo 2019 is equipped with numerous driver assistance systems as well as security systems, as expected, since Volvo is one of the leading manufacturers in the safety of utility vehicles in their vehicles. It also has a semi-autonomous driving system.
In the minimalist design, the spacious cabin features a central 9-inch multimedia system display that eliminates several physical keys, and a lucrative wheelbase is responsible for the excellent space for passengers to sit in the rear seats.
With the announced electrification of all of its models by the next year and the new V60 2019 from the beginning, in addition to the well-known two-liter petrol and diesel engines, it will be offered in combination with two hybrid options, and behind the label T8, a stronger hybrid version with 390 hp is distributed. axles.
This new 2019 Volvo V60 will be Volvo’s first model in the premium caravan segment based on SPA platforms and will be sold in two plug-in hybrid versions, at least in Europe. The first version will feature a T6 Twin engine that delivers power to all wheels and produces 340 horsepower, and the stronger version will beside the electric motor also have the T8 Twin unit that produces 390 horsepower that are also sent to all wheels.
There will also be versions with the T5 and T6 engine versions, as well as the D3 and D4 diesel engines.
It is superfluous to recall that the new V60, which should reach its first customers in the second half of the year, won rigorous EuroNCAP tests with all five stars.
The exact price of the new 2019 Volvo V60 model is still not known with security. The predecessor was priced at $ 38,250. The new redesigned could definitely be more expensive. This price should be above $ 39,000 and should not exceed $ 40,000, unless it’s about some special additions. The advantage of the new model is that it is well designed, but it is still more competitive with the price.
As a competition for the new 2019 Volvo V60, is the 2017 BMW 3 Series Sports Wagon, the 2018 Audi A4 Allroad.
