Volvo S60 and V60 2019 pricing and specs confirmed

The S60 and V60 look the part, and come with impressive standard spec.

Volvo Australia has revealed pricing for its S60 mid-size sedan and V60 wagon.

The new-generation S60, which was a late inclusion for Australia alongside its V60 wagon equivalent, enters a tough premium market segment, competing against the new BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and Audi A4.

Priced from $54,990, the S60 sedan is available in three trim levels and just two drivetrains, with diesel being notably absent.

Kicking off the range is the impressively-specified S60 Momentum which has 17-inch alloy wheels, a 9.0-inch multimedia touchscreen supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as DAB+ digital radio, keyless entry, powered tailgate, auto dimming rear vision mirror, auto dimming and auto folding wing-mirrors, LED headlights, dual-zone climate control and full leather seating.

Stepping up to the Inscription ($60,990) adds tweaked styling touches, 19-inch alloy wheels, four-zone climate control, a head-up display, a 360-degree parking camera, auto-parking assist, directional LED headlights, wood interior highlights, ambient lighting, and heated front seats with cushion extensions.

The V60 wagon equivalents mirror the sedan’s specification level at a $2000 premium. The Momentum and Inscription are only available with the ‘T5’ four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, producing 187kW/350Nm.

The V60 wagon can be had in exactly the same trim levels as the S60 sedan at a modest premium. (overseas model shown) The V60 wagon can be had in exactly the same trim levels as the S60 sedan at a modest premium. (overseas model shown)

Stepping up to the R-Design ($64,990) adds a higher state of engine tune (192kW/400Nm) or the option of the T8 hybrid drivetrain, with combined outputs of 311kW/680Nm.

Extra equipment on the R-Design includes a sporty exterior and interior design pack, 19-inch alloys with a unique look, paddle-shifters on the steering wheel, ‘Polestar optimisation’ (a bespoke suspension tune from Volvo’s performance division), metal mesh interior highlights, R-Design sports leather seats, and a 230V power outlet in the tunnel console.

The S60 and V60 are now underpinned by Volvo’s “Scalable Product Architecture” (SPA) and have had their styling updated to match that of the rest of Volvo’s recently-released SUV range.

The S60 and V60 ranges have premium interior trims from the base up. The S60 and V60 ranges have premium interior trims from the base up.

On the safety front, every S60 and V60 come standard with Volvo’s ‘Intellisafe assist’ suite, consisting of auto emergency braking (AEB) and collision warning that works when the car is going both forwards and backwards, front & rear parking sensors with a reversing camera, blind spot monitoring (BSM), rear cross traffic alert (RCTA), adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist (LKAS).

The Volvo S60 and V60 will arrive in Australia in the first half of August.
