The new Volvo V60 features striking coupé-like lines and a pronounced wedge shape that enhances the car’s stance on the road and emphasises the dynamic design. Behind the wheel, the V60 feels every bit as taut as its design thanks to a chassis that has been tuned to match the expectations of enthusiast drivers.

Six engines will be available to UK customers at launch – two diesels and four petrols. Entry into the range will be the D3 model, which generates 163PS and 400Nm torque from its 2.0 diesel powerplant.

The T4 also features Start/Stop technology on manual gearbox only.

To further enhance these already comprehensive specifications, a "Premium Pack" upgrade is available on SE, SE Lux and R-Design trim levels which adds leather-faced upholstery, satellite navigation system, DAB Digital Radio and High Performance Multimedia audio system to the car.

R-DESIGN

The UK is expected to be one of the largest markets for Volvo’s new S60 and V60 R-Design models with an expected uptake of 20%. The R-Design models feature enhanced styling and more dynamic driving characteristics than the standard cars. R-Design is available across both the S60 and V60 range – not just the higher-spec variants.

Exterior upgrades include unique five-spoke 18” Ixiom alloys, a front strut brace and revised dampers that result in a stiffer chassis for enhanced driver enjoyment, plus a 15mm lowered chassis, redesigned front valance and specially developed rear diffuser incorporating twin exhaust tailpipes.

Inside, the driver and front passenger sit in sports seats featuring a special leather/textile upholstery trimmed in off-black and ceramic light, or in an all-black variant, both with contrasting stitching. The interior also features an R-Design steering wheel, gear selector, sports pedals and floor-mats.

R-Design models are priced from £25,695.
