Fleet World Fleet: Volvo V60 D3 R-Design

Finding fault with the V60 is far from easy, says Martyn Collins.

The V60 continues to impress

Volvo kindly sent me home from the UK launch in one of their Cross Country launch cars, which made for an interesting comparison with my V60. But, after a week behind the wheel, there’s a couple of things I’d like to change.

Firstly, the 2.0-litre diesel in D4 tune might have just 40hp more, but on the road, it feels far more willing and energetic than my D3.

Selfishly, the other is the optional Harmon Kardon sound system, which has more power and clarity than the already good standard kit.

That’s it, the V60 is that good, and continues to impress.

P11d/BiK: £36,960 (29%) MPG/CO2:60.3mpg (WLTP)/123g/km (NEDC Correlated) TestMPG: 32mpg
