No, the awesome new Volvo V60 isn't for SA

01 March 2018 - 18:48 By Thomas Falkiner
Volvo Cars has unveiled the new V60 ahead of the Geneva motor show and to say that we at Ignition Live are fans would be an understatement.

Taking design cues from the V90, the new V60 certainly upped the ante in both design and practicality with the model having grown in size compared to the outgoing model. We can expect it to share a great number of items with the forthcoming XC60, including engines and technology.

Sadly for South African consumers, who have an aversion to station wagons in favour of SUVs, the V60 will not be coming to our shores. However, we have it on good account that the V60 CC (Cross Country), which is essentially a raised and plastic cladded variant of the V60, will be offered here. – BD Motor News
