Used Volvo V60 for sale

- Various powertrains available, including hybrid technology
- Excellent safety rating
- Comfortable interior
- Stylish exterior design
- Well-equipped as standard

In terms of driving dynamics, the V60 places a focus on comfort making it ideal for long motorway journeys. Traditional internal combustion engine variants can also be found on older examples.
Practicality and Running Costs
The interior offers plenty of head and legroom for most, but taller passengers may want to consider going for a model without the panoramic roof, as this reduces headroom somewhat. Besides that, the V60 is a very practical car with various storage compartments around the cabin and ISOFIX mounting points on the rear seats.
529 litres of boot space strengthens the V60's appeal, offering plenty of room for the likes of a pushchair or multiple bags of luggage. You won't have to sacrifice space if you opt for a PHEV version either, as the V60 has been cleverly engineered to avoid a reduction in overall carrying capabilities, which can't be said about every PHEV.
Being a luxury estate, running costs were never going to be cheap, but they are reasonable. Insurance resides between groups 24 and 42 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Low cost servicing and maintenance can also be carried out at your nearest Evans Halshaw dealership.
Interior, Technology and Safety
The V60 comes with a similar interior to that of other Volvo models - if it isn't broke don't fix it. Various bits of soft-touch plastics and premium materials can be found around the cabin, allowing it to compete with other luxury rivals.
You'll get features such as satellite navigation, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and LED headlights as standard, but opt for a higher specification and you'll get an the likes of leather seats and an upgraded Bowers and Wilkins audio system.
Volvo have become well-known for the top levels of safety their cars possess, and the V60 is no different, earning the full five-star rating in Euro NCAP's rigorous crash tests. Available safety tech includes:
- BLIS™ and cross traffic alert
- Rear collision warning and mitigation support
- Parking camera and sensors
- Lane keeping aid
- Pilot assist with adaptive cruise control, driver alert and queue assist
Is the Volvo V60 right for me?
The Volvo V60 is right for those looking for an estate car that's comfortable, luxurious and very practical. It's not the most dynamic to drive, but you'll be hard pushed to find an estate car that's more comfortable when cruising on motorways and A-roads.
Direct rivals include the popular Audi A4 Avant and BMW 3 Series Touring, both of which offer a beautifully-refined experience. If you're working with a smaller budget, the Skoda Superb Estate punches above its weight in terms of value for money.
