The Volvo V60 is this Swedish automaker’s smallest wagon and is a capable one at that. Closely related to the S60 sedan, this model seats five, offers excellent cargo space, and supplies a pair of forced-induction four-cylinder engines.

2017 Volvo V60 Overview
What's New for 2017
The big news this year is that Volvo has subtracted a pair of engines. Gone are the five- and six-cylinder engines that have long powered Volvo vehicles. Going forward, Volvo will rely exclusively on four-cylinder engines and electric vehicle technology.
Choosing Your Volvo V60
Forced induction is the rule for 2017 Volvo V60 models. All engine choices are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
All T5 models are powered by a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. With front-wheel drive, this model makes an EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 36 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel drive version makes 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
The T6 model offers standard all-wheel drive. It is powered by a 2-liter, supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 302 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This model makes an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway.
At the top of the V60 range is the all-wheel drive Polestar. This model relies on a specially enhanced engine with a larger turbocharger, dedicated connecting rods, an enlarged intake, and a higher capacity fuel pump. The V60 Polestar’s engine makes 362 horsepower and 347 pound-feet of torque. The EPA fuel mileage estimates are 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.
Four trim levels are available: T5 FWD, T5 AWD, T6 AWD, and Polestar.
Now that the V90 is available, Volvo once again has two wagons available in North America. As for the V60, we think all-wheel drive is the way to go. Most shoppers should find the T5 AWD sufficient—and with the Platinum package selected, it presents a better value than some of its German competitors.
