  • Since this is Jalopnik, I think we should issue a State of the Wagon address, and assess where the Volvo V60 fits into it.

    The Volvo V60 is one of the few entry-level luxury wagons still left on the market, and it nearly matches the S60 sedan when it comes to the variety of its.

    FACT! Volvo is a Swedish automotive company. The name of the concern comes from the Latin language "Volv" and translates as "spinning", "rolling".

    Polestar tuning brings the 3-liter engine up to horsepower, while the station wagon body offers cargo utility and sporty handling. The Bad The six-speed automatic transmission was slow to downshift for passing and made jerky upshifts under moderate acceleration. The navigation system's Internet-powered local search feature did not provide good results.

    The Bottom Line The Volvo V60 T6 R-design makes for a strong multipurpose vehicle, offering excellent utility for shopping errands and refined handling, but the smaller engined V60 T5 Drive-E is the more economical choice. Station wagon fans such as myself appreciate the combination of utility and drivability offered by this type of vehicle. Volvo certainly affirms the latter with the V60 T6 R-design.

    For utility, this wagon not only boasts a large cargo area, but also modern connected amenities and advanced safety features. The V60 comes in either front- or all-wheel-drive, with engines ranging from five to six cylinders. These prices may seem a bit high, but Volvo is marketing its cars in the premium segment. That became apparent to me from the V60's cabin, which offered a quality feel and a good degree of comfort.

    Whether slogging through heavy traffic, sailing down the freeway, or trawling for a parking space at the mall, the V60's cabin amenities took off some of the edge.

    It was a car that, no matter the trip, I could look forward to getting behind the wheel. The V60 R-design model I drove carried light blue Polestar badges, but that didn't mean it was the same as the V60 Polestar model I drove recently in Southern California.

    That blue badge only means that Volvo's favorite tuning shop, Polestar, reprogrammed the engine for more power. That programming comes standard with the V60 T6 R-design model. Under the hood sat a transverse-mount, in-line six-cylinder engine; only 3 liters but turbocharged to make horsepower and pound-feet of torque.

    Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, Volvo claims a zero-tomph time of 5. It turned in average fuel economy for me of By contrast, Volvo's V60 T5 Drive-E comes in at horsepower and should bring in around 30 mpg average. The Drive-E model is the wiser choice, but drivers who appreciate how their cars handle will like the V60 T6 R-design's suspension tuning and the night-and-day difference between the transmission's normal and sport modes.

    With the automatic transmission, the V60 proved an easy suburban driver. The engine had more than enough power, the turning radius was good, and I liked the solid steering feel. However, I found the transmission was loathe to kick down when I needed to move fast.

    This six-speed seemed programmed to encourage efficiency. If I wanted to get anywhere fast, I could tap the steering wheel-mounted paddles to force a downshift.
