2011 Volvo V60
This has to be Volvo’s sleekest wagon ever.
It does look great.
But it really could use one of these glass panel roof instead of this old fashion small sunroof.
Top engine in Europe will be a 3.0 Liter Turbo with 304hp.

It should definitely have gotten the panoramic slide/tilt sunroof available on the XC60.
Otherwise, it looks nice despite a small trunk.
Looks good. Though not sure we'll see it in the US and if it might even be more expensive than the new S60 (40K+?).
Great-looking car, but I'm mentally superimposing a 240-series wagon on it and mourning the loss of the uber-practical Volvo box.
Perhaps they should make this in two body styles – "lifestyle" (the swoopy one) and "real world" (square-rigged, for hauling stuff)…
What I do not get about Volvo is that they build 300 horse engines that are kind of slow.
Agree w/ Gromit.
I want a long, rectangular box, with lots of space for passengers and cargo.
Also, and perhaps this has to do w/ the styling exaggerations seem in illustrations, the beltline looks too high (low visibility) and the tires too high profile (bumpy ride and blowouts).
Who is really looking for a sleek wagon, anyway?
Looks better than the sedan
Naturally, Volvo decided to stop sending wagons to the US right before introducing this stunner! It's a shame.. because unlike the S60 sedan, nobody will mistake this for a Civic!
Looks like it should have a SAAB badge on it to me.
It looks like it drove up onto a curb and crunched the bottom
Another great rental car for the fleet!
I love it. Sleek, pretty, hot. Who cars about a trunk? I don't.
