    The second model of the brand’s 60 Series lineup, the V60 slots under the larger V90 and is built on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). It appears to be a shrunken iteration of the V90 and shares good looks with its elder brother. 

    There is an Inscription six-point grille on the front with a chrome frame and a diagonal bar. It is edged by full-LED “Thor Hammer” headlights featuring active high beams and active bending lights. The front bumper is sharper and more aggressive than the V90, lending the wagon a sportier look.

These are teamed up with black diamond-cut 19-inch rims wrapped in 235/40R19 tyres. Other significant inclusions are bright finished roof rails, Panoramic moonroof, and a handsfree power-operated tailgate,
