New Volvo V60 goes against the current SUV trend

New Volvo V60

There are more and more SUVs appearing on the market every day, it sometimes seems that they are taking over the road. Volvo has just launched their new V60, however, an estate car with enough style to rival any SUV out there. Drivers often think of estates as being boxy and devoid of interesting features, this is not the case with the V60, indeed its svelte, streamlined shape makes the thought of owning an estate car exciting again. Here are some reasons why you should consider a Volvo V60 for your next car.

The redesigned wagon shares the same Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform as the XC60 SUV and the larger 90-series models (S90 Sedan, V90 Wagon, XC90 SUV)

Many people love the XC60 SUV from Volvo, so much so that it has won the World Car of the Year Award for 2018. As an award decided on by automotive journalists around the world, this is an extremely impressive accolade. So the fact that the V60 shares the same SPA is great news. Ultimately, the SPA that has made the XC60 so popular is designed for larger, more prestigious vehicles, just imagine what it is going to do for the smaller V60.
