2016 Volvo V60
The 2016 Volvo V60 is a sports wagon, perfect for those looking to purchase a car that has it all. With its stylish design, inside and out, and plenty of luxury features, this year’s V60 is one of the most comfortable sport wagons on the market. To top it all off, it has stellar fuel economy and performance, coupled with class-leading safety, thanks to Volvo’s host of technologically advanced IntelliSafe features.
The 2016 Volvo V60 truly reshapes the sports wagon class, changing everything that shoppers know about wagons. Well, almost everything. Because it’s still based on the station wagon design, this car is perfect for a family; that much hasn’t changed. And a car that’s perfect for a family needs a dealership that strives to build the perfect family and that dealership is Smythe Volvo.
Ready for a Family Road Trip?
Everything from the outside to the inside of the 2016 Volvo V60 is designed with family in mind. When parents look at the shape of the V60, they will be inspired to grab the kids and pack this wagon for a long road trip.
A Traditional Design With a Twist
The V60 is, in the traditional sense, a station wagon. It has the same type of design, a short front-end with a rectangular and elongated rear-end. But, what’s untraditional is the way the front of this vehicle looks. Looking at the V60 head on, one can’t help but notice its subtle athleticism, thanks to the contribution of the tight-knit split grille design and sweeping headlights.
However, it also exudes a sense of luxury. Along with a partially athletic stance, luxurious undertones run throughout the front-end in the form of perfectly placed character lines. The beautifully arching hood has just the right amount of curve and the slightly raised center enhances the aesthetic appeal even further.
Overall, this design provides the perfect mixture of aerodynamics, versatility, and sports car handling. Even the traditional station wagon design is taken up a peg with the rest of the V60 looking just as elegant and well-composed as the front. It’s a design that truly does redefine the image of a station wagon, with an interior to match.
Transitioning to performance with cargo space in mind, the V60 has a 3,500 lb. towing capacity, which means if more cargo space is needed a small trailer can be added onto it. This towing capacity is possible thanks to the best of Volvo’s three engine options; the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged direct injection with 240 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2.5-liter 5-cylinder turbocharged with 250 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque; and the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder supercharged, turbocharged, and direct injection engine that puts out 302 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.
Because these powertrains are engineered with saving money in mind, they are both powerful and exceptionally efficient. The 2.0 turbocharged gets 25 mpg city and 37 mpg highway; the 2.5 gets 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway; and the top-of-the-line 2.0 gets 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. The last engine impresses with it blend of exceptional horsepower and performance.
Why is this relevant? Not only does the new V60 provide spacious seating and storage; you’ll spend less time and money tanking-up on the family road trip because of the stellar fuel economy.
A Welcoming Interior
When it comes to family road trips, the two most important qualities in a vehicle are space and comfort. The V60 excels in both areas with its well-thought out interior rife with standard comfort elements and optional packages, ensuring passengers are comfortable and happy in all five seats.
The 2016 Volvo V60 is built on the core station wagon design, and therefore shares its versatility. With the ability to seat up to five people with 43.8 cu.ft. of passenger volume, and the availability of 43.1 cu.ft. cargo capacity when the seats are folded down, the V60 is a spacious wagon option on the 2016 market. Plus, the 40/20/40-split design provides plenty of flexible storage options that allow the driver to make the best use of the space when going out to grocery shop.
Complimenting this space, Volvo made sure the V60 came equipped with some of the most comfortable and supportive leather seats found in any car. Ample bolsters on the front seats provide a secure feeling when taking tight corners, and the back seat is the perfect size for children. Even better, built-in booster seats make transporting little ones a breeze.
The V60 also has a host of comfort and convenience options. Opting for the climate package, for example, adds an upgraded cabin air filtration system, heated front and rear seats, a heated steering wheel, a heated windshield and windshield washer nozzles. This takes the edge off the chilly winter months, providing a level of comfort and convenience for the entire family when the snow starts flying.
Some of the standard comfort options include: electronic climate control, a power glass moonroof, electric folding rear head restraints, power front driver seat with memory, and a plethora of many other stand-alone enhancements.
The available Climate Package and standard features like the power glass moonroof contribute to making the inside of the V60 a comfortable and family-friendly interior.
