Stylish, powerful, and most of all economical, the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid offers plenty to feel good about. An innovative plug-in hybrid drivetrain enables electric rear-drive, along with a five-cylinder diesel front-drive, offers new realms of possibility and the ability to choose a driving style to suit you.
A speedy capability of 0-62mph in only 6.1 seconds proves just how powerful the four-cylinder turbo charged diesel engine is, yet an impressive economy of up to 148.7mpg makes the former seem impossible, proving the V60 Plug-in Hybrid really does have the whole package.
A whole host of features await inside the cabin, while the outside boasts some superior styling. Subtle contours define the muscular stature of the vehicle, while large 18-inch alloy wheels on the R-Design Lux Nav edition enhances the sporty outlook, giving a teaser of the power and speed waiting underneath the bonnet.
Widely known for the best safety on the market, that isn’t about to stop with the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid. Starting with the basics, a reinforced passenger compartment ensures maximum safety in collision scenarios, while pre-prepared restraints are able to sense oncoming accidents and prepares the airbags and seatbelts accordingly.
These are followed with some more advanced safety systems, including Driver Alert Control, which monitors driving behaviour at speeds of over 40mph and alerts you if you’re showing signs of distraction or tiredness. BLIS™ is also included; a Volvo innovation that alerts you if a vehicle enters your blind spot or approaches fast from behind, allowing for the ultimate safety all around.
Active High Beam technology is perhaps the most exciting safety feature in the V60’s arsenal, taking away the need to be always switching between dipped and full beam, recognising on-coming headlights with the use of cameras.
Beautiful form follows even better function in the Volvo V60, each meticulously designed contour improving the aerodynamics and handling of the vehicle to give you the smoothest driving experience possible. The iconic shaped front grille bearing the Volvo logo claims the car as exquisitely made, while the diagonal bar propels it forward even when standing still.
Chrome highlights on the side mirrors and around the window line add a refined style to the range of paint colours available, giving a touch of sporting class to the understated design. The classically shaped rear of the car offers visual interest in the unique curves, as well as performing to aerodynamic advantage.
The interior offers an impressive feeling of luxury, from sports seats available in the R-Design in Nubuck textile and leather, to a gear shifter gaiter with contrasting stitching for a supremely elegant finishing touch, while the sleek controls offer unbeatable ergonomics.
An impressive array of technology awaits within the cabin of the Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid, all designed to make your driving experience the ultimate in convenience and enjoyment. The Sensus Connect technology for example converts the 7-inch colour display in the central console into an internet connected hub of infotainment. Convenient in-car apps give you access to entertainment, navigation, controls, connectivity and service, so you can stay connected to everything that matters no matter where you go.
Volvo On Call also enables a Wi-Fi hotspot for all internet-connected mobile devices, bringing a whole new meaning to the idea of connectivity on the move. An innovative smartphone app that comes with the technology enables access to a selection of remote functions such as locking and unlocking the doors, starting the engine heater or even checking up on your car, so you can enjoy the ultimate in convenience with just a touch of your fingertips.
