1.6 D2 and the other 2.0 D3 are the two low powered diesel engines that are not that flexible. The 2.0 D3 is the top ranging diesel offering a 178bhp is the best amongst all to drive. The petrol ones are the 1.6 T3 and 2.0 –litres T6 that are turbocharged.
V60 shows a perfect balance of driver needs and on-board comfort. Because of the firm suspension, we will recommend you to avoid the stiff set-up. Even the steering will ruin the entire fun factor for you.
The manual gearshift is quite uncertain but the road noise and suspension noise is negligible.
This car has undercut the price of its other rivals but still don’t lose hope as you can get a massive discount. Don’t expect a nice resale value for Volvo V60 Estate. But it’s a really nice and appealing company car option as it has quite competitive CO2 emission and fuel economy.
The solid build and the high quality material is used to make this a classy one. The controls offered by this car are extremely reliable. The plastic which is used is of great quality and soft to touch.
Six airbags and safety controls are present in V60. These things will help in detecting the things that comes in the way of car and to reduce the low speed impacts. Some optional driver support systems also there like the pedestrian detection system, lane departure warning adaptive cruise control.
Excellent driving position. The accommodating, comfortable and supportive seats that really need a special appreciation. The layout of dashboard is clear and the all-around visibility is also nice.
Although the 430-litres boot is well designed but it’s not that big. The back rest of rear seat can be spitted in 40/20/40. Quite a roomy car with plenty of leg and head room.
This car comes in four exclusive trims to fulfill the needs of their worthy customers. They are business edition, SE lux, SE, R-Design Lux trim. All of them have some basic standard equipment like cruise control, alloy wheels and stability control etc. but the SE Trim adds some more equipment like upgraded stereo and Bluetooth. Active headlights, electric seats and leather are added by the smarter SE Lux trim whereas R-Design trims come up with the stiffer suspension. All the trims can be upgraded to the business edition easily.
