2019 Volvo V60 Ratings & Reliability
The Volvo V60 station wagon is all new for 2019. Lower and longer than its predecessor, it shares design and mechanical elements with the larger V90 wagon, S90 sedan, and both the XC90 and XC60 crossovers. The Sweden-built V60 comes standard with advanced driver assist features including automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. A turbocharged, 250-hp four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive come with T5 trim. The T6 offers all-wheel drive, plus a 316-hp four-cylinder engine that is both turbocharged and supercharged. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Unfortunately, the V60 will also feature Volvo's unintuitive touch-screen infotainment setup, which our testers found frustrating to use. Volvo's semi-self-driving Pilot Assist system combines steering assistance and adaptive cruise control to try to make driving easier. A Cross Country version has been added to the line.

Volvo V60 2018
This wagon version of the S60 has fairly agile handling, but the ride is overly firm. The four-cylinder turbo provided lively acceleration and respectable fuel economy. Opting for all-wheel drive brings the older gruff-sounding five-cylinder. The top-level T6 trim with standard AWD is quick and refined. The interior is quiet and logically laid out, but some controls are complicated. The front seats are very comfortable, but the rear is tight. Cargo space is modest for a wagon. Safety features include automatic braking and an optional pedestrian-detection system. The all-wheel-drive Cross County version has higher ground clearance.
