New Volvo V60 breaks cover

The new 2018 Volvo V60 estate - the second of Volvo's new 60 Series models - is revealed in Sweden with looks which echo those of the bigger V90, but with cues from the new XC60.

Volvo has released the official details of the new V60 ahead of its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show.

Volvo has also confirmed the V60 will be available as part of the super-premium Volvo Care subscription service, which starts at $600 a month. Called Volvo Care, the service will provide a shiny new vehicle for a flat fee and no deposit. The new wagon's styling themes are now familiar, too, though no less striking. As a result, the V60 offers improved interior and luggage space.

Unsurprisingly, there will be the usual diesel and petrol options - V60 D3 and D4 diesels and T4 and T5 petrols - although the petrols won't be available at launch. A more detailed pricing structure will be announced soon. It uses the T5, front-drive turbocharged engine in combination with a lithium ion battery that drives the rear wheels.

Fox News launching streaming service, no cable subscription required
The cable news network is planning to a launch a standalone subscription service by the end of the year, called Fox Nation. Fox Nation is the latest effort from a traditional TV company to dip its toes into the streaming video waters.

As Volvo has built a reputation for building some of the safest cars in the world, it has fitted the V60 with City Safety with Autobrake - which uses autonomous emergency braking and hazard detection systems - and Pilot Assist, which can reduce driver fatigue as the auto can perform all major driving functions by itself at speeds up to 80mph on well-marked roads.

The driver assist features have received a boost thanks to the semi-autonomous Pilot Assist technology, which offers assistance with steering, acceleration and braking.

Håkan Samuelsson, head honcho of Volvo Cars, says that 'the family estate driver is an important customer for our business and has been for generations. 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.

Bringing its compact executive offering into line with the rest of its stylish range, Volvo has given the V60 a sharp new look, updated engines, up-to-date infotainment and the very latest safety technology.
