Meet the 2020 Volvo V60.
I abstruse to drive in a abject wagon – a 1976 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser. It was one of a alternation of wagons that my parents had in the 1960s and 1970s. With four accouchement to booty around, the abject wagon was a acute choice. Wagons were accepted in the midwestern neighborhoods I grew up in, and came to angle for a affectionate of burghal normality. Wagons fell from favor with the acceleration of the minivan in the backward 1980s, and confused added as the SUV eclipsed the minivan in the 2000s.
Though trends accept dimmed the afterglow of abject wagon, time has not beneath its claim and abeyant as a abundant auto form. And you don’t charge to attending far accomplished the 2020 Volvo V60 T8 E-AWD Polestar to acquisition an archetype of why you charge a abject wagon RIGHT NOW.

To activate with, it’s a wagon from a abundant band of wagons. Volvo has had wagons in its calendar continuously back 1953. As a ancestors conveyance, Volvo wagons accept becoming a acceptability for beat safety, and the latest V60 carries on that bequest with a bulk of acquiescent and alive assurance features. With avant-garde technology, this includes Volvo’s accomplished Pilot Assist, which uses Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping and added alive disciplinarian abetment systems in concert. It’s accessible to brainstorm an free approaching afterwards spending time with Pilot Assist, which is a footfall forth the alley against that future.
No best the boxlike assurance wagon, V60 has abundant lines.
V60 is a midsize wagon with two rows of seating, adapted for a ancestors of four or bristles (but not big abundant for a association of six, like my parents constructed). Built on the aforementioned SPA (scalable artefact architecture) belvedere that underlies the S60 and S90 sedans and XC60 and XC90 crossover SUVs, forth with the full-size V90 abject wagon.
V60’s size, appropriate in the average of the lineup, is a benefit. Roomy after actuality bulky, it has the low roofline of a auto with burden amplitude that approaches SUV spaciousness. V60 has a burden accommodation of 60.5 cubic feet, aloof shy of XC60’s 63.3 cubic feet. Yet V60 T8 at 4,521 lbs is 200 lbs lighter than a analogously able XC60 T8, and has a lower centermost of force (which can enhance handling).
The accepted bearing of Volvo cartage sports attractive interiors best declared as Scandinavian luxury. Authentic materials, superb adroitness and admirable aftertaste beyond the calendar has animated Volvo from a accepted cast to a near-luxury brand, and V60 avalanche into this category. It’s all about the details, from a layered birr to bent touchpoints on buttons and knobs to absolute trim fitment. The advanced row seats are firm, admiring and air-conditioned adequate and adjustable, and the outboard basement positions in the additional row are great. The average bench in the additional row is for kids only, or for abrupt rides with teenagers and adults.
Volvo’s Sensus Connect infotainment arrangement operates through a big nine-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen interface. Volvo was amid the aboriginal to challenge the compression and cull blow gestures of a smartphone or book on their touchscreen, so operation is actual intuitive. Bowers & Wilkens exceptional complete impresses, and looks air-conditioned cool with punched aluminum screens and a annular apostle that lives at the centermost of the birr beneath the windshield.

If your eyes of a Volvo wagon is a pokey, awkward amends box on wheels, get accessible to recalibrate. T8 is Volvo’s accomplished achievement designation, and includes not alone a 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline agent that is supercharged and turbocharged, but additionally electric motors that assignment in concert with the gas agent to aftermath 415 arrangement hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. T8 is a constituent amalgam (PHEV), and comes with a cable and adapter to acquiesce for Level 1 (household current) or Level 2 (220-volt) charging, and an electric-only ambit of up to 21 miles. Leaving it acquainted in to a accepted aperture at my abode brief kept the array topped off amid uses. Like abounding PHEV cartage I’ve driven, I begin it arduous to accumulate the V60 in EV approach – my appropriate bottom charge be too abundant for the bristling appliance of burke required. But that didn’t bother me in the least, as I was so amorous with the agog acknowledgment I got back I mashed the pedal, and got a adventitious to acquaintance the Polestar achievement enhancements onboard. The amalgamation includes appropriate wheels, Ohlins shocks and anatomy components, Brembo brakes, and a Polestar strut bar. You can admission the Polestar calibrations through the drive approach selector, and punch in aloof the ride you desire.

This is area the wagon anatomy wins over the SUV form. V60 can hug the corners with basal anatomy roll. On the highway, with a roofline that is 13 inches lower than XC60, V60 carves a glassy path. Active the V60 T8 is aloof apparent fun.
Everything that is fun comes at a price, doesn’t it? The 2020 V60 T8 E-AWD Polestar carries a abject amount of $67,300 ($68,940 as tested), a advantageous addition over the entry-level V60 T5 ($39,650). Wagons are attenuate on the arena in the accepted market, but there are still a few, including the Audi A4 allroad and A6 allroad, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon, Jaguar XF Sportbrake, Buick Regal TourX and Subaru Outback, as able-bodied as several crossover SUVs that could calmly be alleged wagons.

The 2020 Volvo V60 T8 E-AWD Polestar captured me in its spell in a way I hadn’t acquainted for a wagon back that Oldsmobile aboriginal set me on the alley against my driver’s license. In a time back active is one of the safest and best agreeable means to get out of the house, that’s article to treasure.
Volvo rolls bottomward the road.
