About the 2020 Volvo V60 Wagon

Practical, versatile, and well-engineered wagons remain as a strength throughout Volvo Cars' rich history. Today, Volvo continues to lead the United States market for luxury wagons. This strength continues through the 2020 Volvo V60 five-door, midsize premium wagon, setting a new standard for excellence. Designed with a spacious interior, Volvo's V60 leaves the assembly line constructed with Volvo Cars' Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform which also underpins the award-winning XC60 SUV. Volvo's 2020 V60 comes with your choice of a standard T5 Front-Wheel Drive powertrain with 250 horsepower or an optional Polestar Optimized T8 All-Wheel Drive plug-in hybrid powertrain with 415 horsepower.

A segment-first premium subscription service, Volvo Car's new Care by Volvo also comes available on this luxury wagon. Volvo drivers can also get access to the V60 through a monthly flat-fee subscription as an alternative to ownership. This unique service makes having a car as simple and transparent as having a cell phone plan. Contemporary Swedish craftsmanship and premium materials make up the construction of the V60's interior. You'll also be surrounded by cutting-edge tech features to keep you safe, connected, and headed in the right direction.

What the Critics Say

"One wagon that has eluded extinction is the 2020 Volvo V60, which came off a full redesign last year. The sleek shape and appealing interior are a far cry from the boxy Volvos of years past, and there's also plenty of up-to-date technology." - Edmunds

"Having driven the new XC60, I believe the V60 has it beat in terms of both looks and driving dynamics. In fact, I think it's one of Volvo's best implementations of its parts catalog to date, and if buyers are willing to forego ride height in favor of something more carlike, the V60 is worth more than just a look." - CNET

Volvo V60 Features

2020 Volvo V60 Wagon Exterior Styling

Eye-Catching Exterior

This wagon's sleek stance helps create a more striking exterior appearance than ever before with a low, wide silhouette that produces an extremely modern design. Signature LED headlights provide clear illumination while its shortened front overhang instills a look of confidence. Its horizontal roofline tapers gradually toward an upright rear tailgate which can open at the press of a button.

The R-Design trim adds a sportier exterior, including a unique black gloss grille within a silk metal frame as well as a front/rear spoiler and prominent dual tailpipes. Alternatively, the Inscription trim adds more refinement to its design with a bright deco exterior design and distinguished chrome finish grille. However, every trim exhibits Volvo's timeless Scandinavian design.

2020 Volvo V60 Wagon Interior

Luxurious Interior

Unique materials found inside the Volvo V60 Inscription include Driftwood accents - a distinctive wood treatment with a satisfying texture pays tribute to Volvo Cars' iconic Swedish heritage. A standard 9-inch touchscreen sits in the dashboard's center, accented by vertical air vents along with a central strip with a metal finish. The Volvo V60 R-Design offers metal mesh aluminum inlays or an optional carbon fiber inlay for a sportier, sleeker look. In addition to expanded interior dimensions, Volvo's V60 delivers cutting-edge connectivity features including Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Giving you access to a broader collection of apps, standard 4G internet connectivity allows you to enjoy internet radio and audiobooks right from your V60. For a concert-like listening experience, you can choose to upgrade to the Harman Kardon Premium Sound system or the Polestar Optimized trim exclusive Bowers & Wilkins 15-Speaker, 1100-watt Premium Sound system.

2020 Volvo V60 Wagon Capability

Proactive Safety

Through Volvo's tradition of engineering vehicles safer than any other brand since 1959 when creating the 3-point seatbelt, the V60 sets a new standard in safety for the automotive industry. Developed alongside the award-winning XC60 and XC90, Volvo City Safety with Autobrake technology combines automatic braking with detection systems to help drivers avoid potential collisions. This system remains one of the few systems available in vehicles that can recognize pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals. Enhanced with improved cornering performance, the Pilot Assist system aids you with steering, acceleration, and braking on well-marked roads up to 80 MPH.
