The average fuel consumption (city and highway driving combined) is 13.33 km per one litre of fuel or 9.8 km. per one litre of E85 fuel.

Its safety innovations, such as the Pedestrian Detection with Full Auto Brake and City Safety, also make the Volvo V60 DRIVe sports wagon the family vehicle of choice.

Inside, the spacious and modern design is enhanced with chestnut-colored sovereign hide seats and piping in white leather at the edge of the backrest and cushion.
