The pronounced wedge shape and the slim coupe-like roof line of the new V60 are accompanied by the shoulder profile along the car’s sides, creating a gentle yet powerful double wave from the headlamps at the front to the tail lamps at the rear.

The sporty interior of the new V60 is also the most advanced high-tech environment ever available to a Volvo driver.

Groundbreaking technology such as the optional Pedestrian Detection with full auto brake takes Volvo’s safety dedication yet another step towards the vision of building cars that do not get involved in accidents.

In the field of comfort, there are features such as the optional Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), which automatically maintains a set gap to the vehicle in front. What is new is that the Adaptive Cruise Control operates at speeds below 30 km/h, all the way down to standstill in a car with automatic transmission.

The new V60 can naturally be equipped with parking sensors front and rear and a Park Assist camera at the rear. A camera in the front grille with a 180° field of vision is a new Volvo feature that is available as an accessory.

The camera is a great asset when maneuvering in crossings with limited view or when driving out from a tight and narrow exit such as a parking garage. The image from the camera is displayed on the 7-inch screen in the center stack.

The only 40/20/40-split rear seat in the segment, an easy to load luggage compartment and two built-in child booster cushions – the new Volvo V60 is the perfect choice for buyers who want extra flexibility on top of sporty design and an exciting drive.
