This is the new 2018 Volvo V60 estate

Volvo tells us it's the only system on the market that's capable of recognising pedestrians, cyclists and animals. The base V60 T5 will use a 250-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbo-4 that sends power to the front wheels, while the T6 gets a 2.0-liter, turbo and supercharged 4-cylinder that produces 316 hp and shuttles power to all four wheels.

Prices for the V60 will start from £31,810, with deliveries beginning in the United Kingdom in the third quarter of this year. Those are figures that mirror what's found under the hood of the automaker's XC60 crossover that's on sale now in the U.S. Six powertrains are on offer - two gas engines, two diesel engines (not for the US) and two plug-in hybrids.

Some of the engine options will only appear after launch, and expect a new V60 Cross Country to follow too. The S60 sedan will be the latest Volvo to go under the knife, being one of the few vehicles in the range that hasn't yet received the same dramatic transformation found on offerings like the XC90, S90, and new V60, among others.

The new V60 shares Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform with the XC60 and three range-topping 90-series cars in saloon, estate and SUV forms.

The car's exterior is not too far removed from that of its larger V90 sibling, sharing familiar styling cues like "Thor's Hammer" LED lights, large grille, wraparound rear lights and a raked rear windscreen, while a choice of alloy wheels ranging from 18 to 21 inches is likely.

Inside, V60 models come with the central Sensus infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a rear touchscreen that controls the climate control for passengers in the back. Inside, the new V60 boasts increased space, solving a key problem with the previous model, and the cabin is upgraded with more upscale materials. Maximum cargo capacity grows to about 48.2 cubic feet.

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