As the law of nature goes, a summer vacation car has to be a wagon. A large, comfortable, and practical wagon with plenty of power and torque for your long-distance journey. And what better choice than the all-new stylish Volvo V60 – a car that’s full of tech innovations, which will keep you and your family safe and in full comfort during the long summer trip.

The boot here is highly flexible and is one of the largest in this segment these days, leaving far behind premium cars like the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4. The back seat can be fully folded to form a completely flat cargo area, and the front seats are slim and perfectly sculptured, giving the passengers at the back some extra legroom.  

With Volvo’s new generation of high-tech powertrains, especially the range-topping T8, this seductive Swede will also show no shortage of power under any conditions. Or, generally speaking, with the V60 you won’t have to sacrifice anything – it’s practical, large, and comfortable, yet fun to drive and stylish. Who needs SUVs then?
