The company is keeping details under wraps -apparently with not that great success– but it released a retro-themed teaser video which showcases a handful of their iconic station wagons. The clip then shows several glimpses of the redesigned model which will debut later this month.
Judging by the video, the V60 will stick to the same styling philosophy which has been used on models such as the V40 and V90. The front will be dominated by a wide grille which is undoubtedly flanked by the company’s ‘Thor’s Hammer’ headlights.
Moving further back, there’s a stylish greenhouse which is accented by metallic trim. The model also has silver roof rails, familiar taillights and an available panoramic glass roof.
The clip only provides a few peeks at the cabin but it appears to be heavily influenced by the XC60. As a result, we can expect a stylish Scandinavian design with high quality materials. The wagon should also feature a large infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
Engine options remain unconfirmed but choices are expected to carryover from the XC60. This means options may include a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 250 hp (186 kW) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque as well as a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 316 hp (235 kW) and 295 lb-ft (399 Nm) of torque. We can also expect a plug-in hybrid variant with the latter engine and an 87 hp (64 kW) electric motor. This could enable the wagon to have a combined output of 400 hp (298 kW) and 472 lb-ft (639 Nm) of torque.
