Volvo V60 Reinvents The Family Car With Safety And Lots Of Style.

When it comes to choosing a family vehicle that can accomodate a bunch of kids, while still making your neighbors in Calverton, Southampton and Sag Harbor gasp, the Volvo V60 is in a class of its own.

Underlining Volvo's position as a maker of cars that combine good looks with everyday practicality, the Swedish company revealed the new V60 five-door, mid-size premium estate. The SPA-based V60 introduces a new standard to the mid-size premium estate segment with a luxurious interior, increased levels of space, advanced connectivity, plus Volvo Cars latest driver support systems and other safety technology.

Few car makers, if any can match Volvo Cars’ history and credibility in making well-designed, practical and versatile estate cars. Reflecting Volvo Cars industry-first announcement to electrify all new cars from 2019, the V60 comes with two plug-in hybrid powertrain options: the new T6 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that generates a combined 340hp or the T8 Twin Engine AWD petrol plug-in hybrid that delivers 390hp.

The V60 reinforces Volvo Cars standing as the industry leader in safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver support systems known from the 90 Series and XC60, making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road. The City Safety with Autobrake technology uses automatic braking and detection systems to assist the driver in avoiding potential collisions, and is the only system on the market to recognize pedestrians, cyclists and large animals. In a world first, City Safety now also engages autobraking to mitigate oncoming collisions.

The Pilot Assist system which supports the driver with steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130km/h has been upgraded with improved cornering performance. The V60 also includes Run-off Road Mitigation, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and other steering assistance systems. The optional Cross Traffic Alert with autobrake further improves safety for people inside and outside the car.

“The family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations,” said Hkan Samuelsson, president and CEO of Volvo Cars. “The new V60 honours that tradition, but also takes it much further.” Sensus infotainment system is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. The system is control via an intuitive tablet-style touch screen that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and entertainment apps.

Volvo is renowned for its safety standards, nowhere more so than on Long Island, with its network of roads that connect small towns like Bridgehampton to its neighbors.

The new V60 shares Volvo Cars’ Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform with the award-winning new XC60 and four top-of-the-line 90 Series cars, which have been the collective force behind the company’s record-breaking global sales performance in recent years.
