When it comes to my vehicle, I’m all about a combination of functionality, safety, and design. With three kids I need room for the family and their gear, but I want to look cool when it’s just me driving around town! There’s where the V60 comes in.

The wagon’s cultural heritage began over 60 years ago with the introduction of Volvo’s first wagon in America. Now, it’s evolved into a modern Sportswagon lifestyle with the V60. See the best of the old and the new, including the exclusive first-look V60 adventures we sent our partners like Westerlind and Pilgrim Surf + Supply on, at

All work and all play. Giving you the best of both worlds … the V60 boasts:

  • Power and automatic everything
  • Rain sensors
  • Cross traffic alert
  • Adaptive digital display
  • Active dual xenon headlights
  • Headlight washers
  • Grocery bag holders
  • Tri-folding rear sets

Our SocialMoms members share fond memories of the wagon:

Vanessa with the Queen of Swag talks about road trips in her wagon when she was younger. “We had a wagon as most people did back then. It was the family car and we all loved it. I remember having my own little world in the back seat of the wagon as I spend so much time there. There is nothing better when you’re a kid than to have a big enough space in the back seat to play.”

Katherine with Our Whiskey Lullaby reveals she drove 3 hours to pick up the station wagon of her dreams. “The trunk space was amazing and fit a stroller plus groceries! And the backseat was huge! So ever since then, I was a true lover of Volvo.”

Nicki with Little Island Studios tells us the wagon reminds her of the beach. “I completely equate wagons with happiness and fun.  Sun shining in my face and the wind in my hair.  Even now, it makes me smile.  Volvo wagons carried it all and carried it well – friends, surf boards, loads of coolers, towels and everything else we needed for hours upon hours in the sun and on-through moon-light campfires and clam bakes.”

The V60 offers customers even more in this updated wagon.

No Compromises:

Ergonomic seats in the front grip your body on tight turns. In the rear, seats come in 40/20/40 segments, offering plenty of room and flexibility for your lifestyle. Climb inside and you’re greeted by a sleek, luxurious interior that evokes design cues from contemporary Scandinavian furniture.

Bold New Look:

Stand out for all the right reasons. The V60 isn’t simply a repurposed sedan with a lifted trunk. Rather, it’s designed for purpose, the way a wagon should be. The wide grille and lights form a prominent face. Clean lines flow from the classic Volvo V-shaped sculpted hood, creating strong shoulders that frame the signature tail lights and integrated exhaust. Clearly, the V60 has a style of its own.

Safety Firsts:

Since our first wagon, safety has always been a priority. Volvo IntelliSafe offers features like standard City Safety, which prevents or mitigates slow moving collisions with smart automatic braking. Optional Pedestrian & Cyclist Detection, with full auto brake can automatically stop you at speeds up to 31 mph if a person steps or swerves suddenly into your lane. Trust us, this car knows what it’s doing.

Designed for Purpose:

In a car that seems to do everything, we wanted to help you do a little more too. The V60’s intuitive and advanced features were designed with you in mind. Choose from three modes to personalize your Adaptive Digital TFT Display, and use Integrated Bluetooth® to enjoy hands-free mobile operation and audio streaming from any connected device.
