Volvo has unveiled the 2011 V60 at the Paris Motor Show.

Based on the S60, the estate features sporty styling and a luxurious interior with a five-inch infotainment display, urbane wood trim, and a boot which can hold 430 liters (15.2 cubic feet) of luggage.

Under the hood, a variety of engines will be available. The 3.0-liter T6 petrol produces 304 PS (224 kW / 300 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft), which allows the AWD car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). If that sounds too powerful, Volvo also offers several GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) engines. The 2.0T produces 203 PS (149 kW / 200 hp) and 240 PS (177 kW / 237 hp), while the 1.6 (T3 / T4) churns out 150 PS (110 kW / 148 hp) and 180 PS (132 kW / 178 hp).

Diesel lovers get to choose between the 205 PS (151 kW / 202 hp) 2.4-liter D5 and the 163 PS (120 kW / 161 hp) 2.0-liter D3. Later on, a DRIVe model will be introduced with a 1.6-liter engine that produces 115 PS (85 kW / 113 hp) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque.
