About The V60

Specified as a compact wagon, the Volvo V60 began production in the Autumn of 2010 – replacing the V70. Built upon the Volvo Scalable Product Architecture Platform, the first generation lasted from 2010 up until 2018. There were a number of limited edition versions that were each a variation on the basic V60.

An ‘Ocean Race V60’ was sold from 2014 (not to be confused with a number of older Volvo models), and was fitted with alloy wheels and a cargo cover with the route of the 2014 – 2015 Volvo ocean race on it. Four colors were available in this edition, including the popular ‘ocean blue’.

V60 Polestar – This was a fully reworked V60 and developed by Polestar again, in 2014, with a retuned engine, upgraded suspension, 6 piston brakes, 20-inch alloy wheels and contrasting stitch. With black metallic or rebel blue as the initial colors available, closely followed by white and silver.

The V60 Plug-in hybrid was created with a diesel-electric configuration and was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in 2011. As a result of a collaboration between Volvo and the Swedish energy company Vattenfall, these cars came with a reasonable price tag of approx. £40,000. A 6-speed automatic front-wheel drive, the V60 hybrid had a 5-cylinder 2.4 liter D5 turbo diesel engine producing 215 hp. Volvo fitted an electric motor to the rear axle which allowed for low emissions. Semi-automatic, the driver could control the usage of electric or diesel from inside the car, this came in the form of modes; Pure mode, Hybrid and Power.

For the Northern American and European markets, Volvo created the V60X, a cross-country version that had all-wheel drive. The second generation of this was built upon the Volvo SPA Platform along with the S60, S90, XC60 and the XC90.
