Equipment additions include front and rear parking sensors, City Safety autonomous emergency braking and Volvo’s Sensus connectivity system all as standard.

R-Design Pro versions build on this with standard specification including head-up display, Keyless Drive and hands-free tailgate operation.

Both variants are offered with all current V60 powertrains, comprising the 148bhp D3 and 187bhp D4 diesels and the 247bhp T5 petrol
