The Volvo V60

Relaxed, confident, in control

Estate versatility, sleek looks and supremely assured handling.

Space with Style

Dynamic, Flexible. Every Day

With its keen handling and graceful lines, the V60 is a dynamic family car and a versatile estate. Its raked roofline and road-hugging stance invite driving enthusiasts to take to the wheel, while its flexible rear seat configuration adapts to your every need, whatever the journey.

Driver Support

Adaptive Cruise Control

Adaptive Cruise Control helps you keep a set speed or distance to the car in front. Just select desired speed and time gap to the vehicle in front, and enjoy smooth driving from standstill up to motorway speeds (200 km/h). In stop-and-go city traffic, Queue Assist* helps you follow the vehicle ahead as it accelerates and slows down. On the highway, your speed automatically adapts to the slower moving vehicle to help you maintain a proper distance. *The Queue Assist function from 0 to 30 km/h requires Geartronic™ automatic transmission.

Connect with Your Car

Harman Kardon

Premium Sound by Harman Kardon provides a brilliant, authentic listening experience in your V40, wherever you are seated. Crystal clear highs, a powerful bass and low-distortion midranges all create a sound that’s rich and faithful to the soul of your favourite music. In addition to this high-end package, there’s our High Performance sound system, which delivers a crisp, natural sound.

D6 Twin Engine AWD

Combining an electric motor and a powerful turbodiesel, our plug-in hybrid D6 Twin Engine gives the best of two worlds: a zero emission electric vehicle in the city and a high-performance car on the motorway – with all-wheel drive when needed.

The Pure electric mode prioritises electric drive with a zero emission driving range up to 50 km, ideal for daily commuting. In Hybrid mode the electric motor and the diesel engine work together to optimise your range and fuel-efficiency, while the Power mode uses all available power to maximise performance. And to require optimum road grip, just press the AWD button to prioritise traction on all four wheels.

The race for perfection

In this article, we visit the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard in Lisbon, Portugal. Here, we meet the team of experts responsible for repairing and re-fitting the entire fleet of Volvo Ocean 65 boats that will compete in the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. We describe each team member’s individual area of expertise and show how the team works together to ensure that each boat is repaired identically, on time and to the highest possible standard. Their expertise in different areas represents the same level of competence you find at a Volvo workshop. We also meet Swedish sailor Martin Strömberg, who won the 2011-12 edition of the race, to find out what a great service programme gives him as a sailor.

Lifestyle

A life at sea

In this article we meet Swedish sailor, Martin Strömberg. Martin is now one of Sweden’s most experienced sailors. He has now competed in the Volvo Ocean Race three times and won it once. We describe how Martin first became interested in the Volvo Ocean Race, his drive to compete in the race and how he came to triumph. We also provide an overview of his sailing career so far, his unique approach to putting racing teams together and what the future holds for this modern Swedish pioneer.

Heritage

The race to the horizon

The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
