2015 Volvo V60 Exterior
The 2015 Volvo V60 features an unusually sexy, stylish design for a wagon, making it an instant eye-catcher on the road and in the parking lot. The key is the sloping roofline, which combines grace and elegance with just the right amount of sportiness. The Sport package adds 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels that nicely complement the V60’s arches.

Under the 2015 Volvo V60’s hood is a choice of three engines. The first is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder producing 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.

2015 Volvo V60 Interior
The 2015 Volvo V60 shares most of its interior with the S60 sedan. The cabin is quiet, the materials are first-rate, and the design feels high-tech. The “waterfall” center stack and clever person-shaped ventilation controls are both convenient and good-looking, and the front seats are some of the most comfortable you’ll ever have the luxury to sit in.
2015 Volvo V60 Safety
The 2015 Volvo V60 comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, and the unique Volvo City Safe system, which automatically applies brakes at speeds up to 31 mph when it detects a frontal collision. It also offers advanced safety technologies like frontal collision warning, lane departure warning, and lane-keeping assist.
