Test drive the new Volvo V60 in Reading



Introduction

The Volvo V60 is the S60’s more elegant sibling.

With R-Design and a refreshingly refined interior, this is an estate car with unmistakable style, and enough space for the whole family.

The new Volvo V60 can be discovered in more detail and taken for a test drive at Jardine Motors Group in Reading.

Safety

With the City Safety auto-braking system as standard, the Volvo V60 is as safe a car as you could hope to find.

Upgrade with the Adaptive Cruise Control pack and you can enjoy the benefits of a new radar-and-camera-based collision warning system, which can identify oncoming obstacles and pedestrians to provide even greater protection from accidents.

Design

Air intakes to the sides of the front valance give the V60 a uniquely sporty appearance, and a tapering roofline adds to the air of dynamism generated simply by looking at it.

Powerful headlamps accentuate its good looks, which are sure to have the neighbours staring enviously.

Inside, the V60 really comes into its own. Volvo's trademark minimalism is evident in the clean surfaces and fresh leather upholstery, but the V60 is more imaginative than its predecessors and includes a tastefully laid out dashboard, an inventive floating central console, and a wide range of extras.

Technology

The V60 offers a range of refined engines, from the efficient D5 (215bhp) diesel to the tremendous T6 AWD (304PS) petrol. Each engine provides a satisfyingly powerful growl and, with a top speed of up to 155mph and the potential to hit 62mph in 6.2 seconds should you choose the T6 petrol engine, the V60 is as much of a force on the road as any of its competitors. For outstanding fuel economy and low emissions, an alternative DRIVe engine can offer over 60mpg and lower than 115g/km of CO2. An excellent gearbox and smooth suspension helps towards an even drive, and optional Cruise Control can add yet another dimension to your driving experience.
