The new V60 will also be available via Volvo Cars' new premium subscription service, Care by Volvo, which offers a monthly flat-fee subscription rather than outright ownership. Although, these days, Volvo wagons are far from boxy.

Volvo V60 is also offered with premium subscription service "Care by Volvo".

A second version of the T6 is also expected for the US market, and it will introduce a new plug-in hybrid powertrain to Americans.

New safety features are available for the 2019 V60, and include an updated version of Volvo's City Safety suite of collision avoidance technologies.

The new V60 reinforces Volvo Cars' standing as the industry leader in safety, with a comprehensive list of safety features that come as standard, including advanced driver-support systems known from the 90 series and XC60, making the new V60 one of the safest cars on the road.

The new V60 improves on the old car's surprisingly tight cargo area to the tune of 29.7 cubic feet behind the rear seat compared to 28 cubes for the 2018 model. The V60 is also available with Volvo's Pilot Assist system which is created to assist driver's with steering, acceleration, and braking on well-marked roads at speeds of up to 80 miles per hour.

Volvo is also including blind spot monitoring, City Safety with Autobrake tech and those jarring lane departure warnings. All of which will help this new Swedish Estate blitz the Euro NCAP tests. Volvo says that for 2019, Pilot Assist offers better cornering capabilities, too.

We're expecting the new V60 to be in Volvo's United Kingdom showrooms at the end of Q2 2018, and although Volvo hasn't revealed pricing for the new V60 it should start from a bit over £30k.

The vehicle will also feature the company's Sensus infotainment system, which is fully compatible with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G, and keeps drivers connected at all times. It also benefits from the latest autobraking technology.

But now we get the official take on the new V60, and it looks good.

The V60 is equipped with the latest version of the Volvo's Sensus infotainment system running through a vertical tablet-style touch screen similar to the setup found in all recent Volvo releases. The CEO's words reflect that Volvo is not shying away from its history by any means, especially when history has shown Volvo can make a fundamentally excellent station wagon - a fact backed up by the sheer numbers of well-aged, brick-shaped Volvos that still grace American streets today.
