This must be the first Volvo wagon that they started at the front, not the back. Previous models have been famed for their carrying capability, their toughness and their all-round versatility. The new Volvo V60 is different. It’s still strong and safe and versatile and Volvo is hoping that buyers will love it, just as they love other Volvo wagons. But it’s designed for the man or woman in the front seat rather than the load in the rear. In fact, there has never been a Volvo wagon so sharply targeted at the driver. Along with the new S60, this could well be the most driver-oriented Volvo for 40 years.
