The new Volvo V60 will very likely look like a mini V90.
Volvo has officially released a teaser video of the next-generation V60 ahead of its official digital reveal on February 21.
The V60 is a wagon derivative of the S60 saloon, with most differences between the two cars beginning past the B-pillar. Therefore, the upcoming V60 will also give the world a fair idea of the next-gen S60, which will debut a few months later.
The new V60’s styling will be based on the Swedish company’s new design language featuring a promonent concave vertical slot grille and ‘Thor’s hammer’ LED DRLs - which is not a bad thing as all the new Volvos have been critically acclaimed for their designs. The rear of the new V60 is expected heavily inspired by the bigger V90. On the inside as well, expect high-quality construction with an uncluttered design dominated by a tablet-style infotainment screen on the centre console.
Underneath, the new V60 (and S60) will sit on the shortened version of Volvo's SPA modular platform that debuted in the recently launched second-gen XC60. The car will also share its engines with the XC60 (global-spec), which means that 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder petrol and diesel engines in varying states of tune will propel Volvo’s new small wagon. Sitting on top of the range will be a 400 horsepower T8 petrol hybrid model.
We can also expect a slightly rugged V60 Cross Country (CC) to debut at a later stage. Volvo already sells the bigger V90 CC in India, and V60 CC could fit very well in the company’s Indian lineup. In the meantime, you see Volvo’s official teaser video below.
