We have just two spy photos of the next-generation Volvo V6. The spy can’t really tell us anything too important about the future model, but it’s important because thus we know that the Swedish automaker works on the redesigned station wagon, which will likely appear in the showrooms before the end of the next year as the 2019 Volvo V60.
The photos don’t give us much, though we see new rooflines, which seem to be smoother and longer. Yes, the new generation of the station wagon might provide some additional space inside. Still, this is just how we see it. What we also see are the new taillights beneath the camouflage, as well as a larger rear bumper. Basically, the 2019 Volvo V60 may steal some styling cues from the all-new XC60. The crossover sports very attractive headlights and front bumper, which might appear on wagon’s front end. The distinctive grille peep already, but this treatment will get all new Volvo cars.
The handsome look won’t be everything that gets the next-generation V60. No, the awesome station wagon will definitely add Volvo’s new safety systems and latest technologies. Of course, the all-new Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driver-assist will be available just as an option. Inside of the cabin, the 2019 Volvo V60 will definitely host the same dashboard as the aforementioned crossover. The most dominated part of the cabin will be the Sensus 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto without any doubt.
The station wagon will change its outdated architecture as well. It’s going to be built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform and equipped with some new engine options. There is no official information on what’s going to be under the hood, but we bet on a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Of course, the mill will power the base model, while the more potent version should be motivated by a T6, which will deliver exactly 316 ponies and 295 lb-ft. The Swedish carmaker promised electrification of the entire lineup, so the next-generation V60 won’t be skipped for sure. Still, we don’t expect any all-electric system to be available right away. Instead, the wagon will rely on Volvo’s familiar plug-in hybrid technology.
Stay tuned for updates.
