Super Modern technology, The Best Safety Equipment. 2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions Has Grown 13cm Compared With The Previous Generations, as long as more trunk Capacity.
I had a lot of expectations on the 2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions but I have to admit that after seeing and testing the flagship V90, the surprise effect on the new model has been mitigated a lot. After all, it was to be expected that the new medium wagon would be a sort of small V90. But that’s fine.
Born on the SPA platform shared with the latest XC60 and with the V90, the new Swedish family of copying format resumes almost all the stylistic elements, external and internal, of the older sister. But with more balanced proportions and measures a little easier to manage.
2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions Redesign
Not that it is ultra-compact and clear, given that from one end to the other the new V60 marks 4 meters and 76 cm growing by 13 cm compared to the model that has retired. To the full advantage of rear habitability. Legroom is more than good and the front seat back is never touched (provided you do not exceed one meter and eighty-five). In three there are not too many sacrifices to make despite the tunnel is not the smallest in circulation. Despite its growth, its rivals are the same as ever: the Audi A4 Avant, BMW 3 Series and Mercedes C-Class Wagon, compared to which, in my opinion, offers a more personal and sophisticated style that cuts with the past of the House pointing strongly on modernity.
Practically a miniature V90. All true but up to a certain point. If you look carefully, you will see a less inclined rear window to the full advantage of the capacity of the trunk, the weak point of the old V60 with its 430 liters. Now there are 529 liters that can be expanded up to a maximum of 1,441 liters with reclined seats. Space is well exploited and for a family of 4 people, it is more than enough. Only the double bottom disappoints: poorly finished with respect to the general quality and irregular shape.
The strengths of this V60 are many, starting from the comfort of the highest level thanks to very careful soundproofing at all speeds from both the engine and the aerodynamic hiss, whether you’re in town or on a German motorway. 230 tachometer times.
2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions Interior
All this helps to recreate a pleasantly relaxed atmosphere on board that makes those moments of stress from congested traffic less heavy. There are the famous armchairs Volvo. Almost useless to repeat, since now they are a trademark, but their comfort always convinces. Wherever you look or rest your fingertips, you will find quality finishes and quality materials. Personally, I would choose light-colored furniture, which highlights the clean and minimalist lines, as well as giving more light to the interior.
The ideal driving position is easily found and in a few moments you immediately get in touch with the touch controls of the Sensus system, all concentrated on the 8.4-inch screen. High-resolution display that works well, has no stoppages or delays whatsoever and once you’ve done your hand, changing settings is a matter of a moment. Strange but true, the CD player is an option.
Specs & Test Drive
The Swedish media wagon convinces at the wheel. Among the curves is precise and always composed as a butler of Buckingham Palace. Never a smudge. Certainly, sportiness is another thing, but the 2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions does not make it a primary issue. She offers comfort and that feeling of security that only Volvo manages to transfer from sheet metal to the occupants’ mind. You travel constantly monitored by the watchful eye of the big brother ready to warn us in case of sleep or if we do not see an obstacle, still or moving. At the traffic light as on the highway, the Pilot Assist rotates the steering, accelerates, brakes and restarts in total autonomy. The head-up color display, very clear to read, provides all the most important info always in sight.
The 190-horsepower diesel D4 with automatic transmission is the most centered choice. It pushes with force to the bass thanks to 400 Nm of torque, with a not particularly overwhelming extension but always full and constant. But above all this engine is very silent, even when cold. Too bad that the paddle behind the wheel is reserved only for the R-Design versions: the others cannot even pay them. Quite low in consumption that in the mixed cycle stopped at around 6 liters per 100 km. With the AWD all-wheel drive go up a little.
Well spent the money on the electronically controlled dampers and the four-zone climate, which also acts in the drawer in front of the front passenger for fresh drinks. Advisable, as mentioned, the adaptive cruise control with lane maintenance (Pilot Assist).
2020 Volvo V60 D4 Inscriptions Price
But how much does all this technology cost? It does not come off cheap obviously. Along with the measures, the technical equipment, and the contents, the price has also increased. The sample under test in preparation Inscription with the D4 from 190 marks 56.599 USD. If you want it to be complete, you need to add just over 2.276 USD. So to make it short I would not really want to bring back the V60. You get used to it so easily. The security, then, is at the highest levels and when you get back on a car more “normal” you understand how all that technology is not put there just to stage
