The Car Guide rating 76%(view ratings)
Volvo's smaller wagon has been given a new look and feel similar to the larger V90, but with sportier aspirations. In fact, the T5 and T6 gasoline engines as well as the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain have all been adapted to give the V60 unique performance numbers. All-wheel drive is available. The system actually comes standard on the V60 Cross Country model, which stands out with a more rugged appearance, extra ground clearance and hill-descent control, among other things.
