New car ratings & reviews

Volvo V60

(2019 - present)

The Volvo V60 is a premium medium-sized estate model, the saloon version of which is called the S60. The current model arrived in the UK in the middle of 2018.

About six months after launch, the Volvo V60 range expanded with the V60 Cross Country model. This is a more rugged version of the regular V60 estate aimed at owners who want to take the car off-road.

The Volvo V60 has received consistently good ratings and numerous awards from the UK motoring media, and our unique Expert Rating aggregator shows that the V60 has a higher rating than cars like the Mercedes-Benz C-Class Estate and Audi A4 Avant.

The V60 has received widespread praise for its design, both exterior and interior, as well as its overall comfort. However, it is not considered as rewarding to drive as the class-leading BMW 3 Series Touring.

Several reviewers have commented that the V60 Cross Country has a more comfortable ride than the already-good standard V60, while the car’s off-road ability has also been praised.
