  3. The new estate is set to compete with rivals such as BMW’s 3-Series Touring, Audi’s A4 Avant and the estate version of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
  4. The V60 is also designed to plug the gap left by the V70, which the Swedish car maker stopped producing in 2016.
  5. Engine options include petrol and diesel engines plus two plug-in hybrids.
  6. Think of the new V60 as a funsize S90 – both inside and out it is virtually identical and benefits from the same contemporary styling and thoughtful design.
  7. For safety the V60 is as good as you would expect and it comes equipped with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver-support systems known from the 90 series and XC60.
  8. It is due in Ireland in late Autumn and prices will be confirmed closer to launch.
