2019 Volvo V60 Redesign, Release Date, Price, Pictures
Now it’s out: Shortly before the premiere of the 2019 Volvo V60, first pictures appeared on the internet. It looks like a mixture of XC60 and V90-exactly as expected.
This is something that was presented to Volvo differently. Next Wednesday (21 February) The new V60 will be officially revealed. Swedish home in Stockholm. Now it became unofficially the Internet. The Bosnian magazine Automotosvijet had published pictures which apparently come from the product brochure for the V60. Other media retreated.
The surprise is not great. The new model of the V60 takes on the slender line of the bigger brother V90, but brings a little more hip momentum. Analogous to the mid-range SUV XC60. The window line also gets a small upward bend. The well-known led signature, which Volvo calls “Thor’s Hammer”, lights up at the front of the V60. The rear lights form an “L” As for the V90, but the LED strips are divided in the middle once.
2019 Volvo V60 Redesign Interior
The form makes it clear: Volvo remains loyal to the strategy of setting elegance before utility value. The combi will not set the scale of the trunk volume. But there will be plenty of room on the return bench. The front-transverse concept of the “Scalable Product Architecture” (SPA) moves the engine forward in comparison with the competitors of BMW or Mercedes. This pays off for passengers on the backbench.
Stylistically, the interior is orientated close to the XC60. The dashboard becomes less solid, in the middle sits the well-known touchscreen with the usual functionality. The core competence of the V60 will be a lot of security from the basic version. The city safety system with pedestrian detection and numerous other assistants will already be in the cheapest version. As with XC60, Pilot assist, which allows part automated driving up to Tempo 130, can only be expected at an additional cost.
2019 Volvo V60 Release Date: Market launch in July 2018
The engine offer is expected to include the well-known four-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines for the market launch in July 2018. At the D3 with 150 Hp It will go off, D4 and D5 are also set. The gasoline offer will include the T4 (190 Horsepower) and the T5 (250 Horsepower) as well as the T6 (310 hp). Also comes the plug-in hybrid T8. Most engines will be available with all-wheel drive.
We expect that Volvo will also offer the new three-cylinder petrol engine with 156 hp as T3 for the market launch. A smaller plug-in gasoline would also be logical. Finally, Volvo intends to expand its supply of electrified models in the coming years. The diesel plug-in hybrids that are currently still available in the V60 are falling away.
Of course, Volvo doesn’t reveal prices yet. If the Swedes take over the strategy from the XC60 and offer the V60 momentum only starting with the equipment, prospective customers should expect approximately 35,000 euros for the T3. Official data and nicer pictures of the2019 Volvo V60 for 2018 are already available in a few days.
