The V60 is available with four inline-four petrol engines, including two 1.6-liter Ecoboost units that produce up to 240 Nm of torque with either 150 or 180 horsepower, and two 2.0-liter models that produce either 203hp and 300Nm or 240 hp and 320Nm. Its range-leading inline-six is a 3.0-liter unit that kicks out 304 hp and up to 440Nm. This powerful engine gets the car from 0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds, with an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h.
To make the car look sportier, it has been given a coupe-inspired roof, sculpted styling at the front, and a bulging "shoulder" to keep with Volvo's design language. The car will be sold on a new dynamic chassis in Europe, though some markets will get a choice between a touring chassis and the European standard with its stiffer dampers.
Technology innovations include collision avoidance, pedestrian detection, stability control and traction control, just to name a few. Fold-flat seating is not only available at the back, but also applicable on the front passenger seat, providing maximum loading capability for long objects.
