Volvo has made a name for itself with some of the best-looking interiors in the business and the V60 is no different. In fact, it’s very much the same as the other SPA-platform cars (XC90 and XC60, plus S90 and V90) dominated by the excellent 9-inch touchscreen in the centre of the dash, with a few supporting buttons beneath.

Ahead of the driver sits a digital dashboard, with vertical air vents either side of the centre screen and a ribbon of very Swedish veneer running the full width of the dash. Build quality is good, although it's still not quite up to the standards of the Audi A4, and we can’t believe anyone will be disappointed.

The exterior takes the larger V90's general design and adds a little dynamism to it. So the front looks more athletic and the sides a little more swoopy and toned. The rear tailgate is more vertical than on the V90, too, helping towards those class-leading boot capacity figures. 

Sat-nav, stereo and infotainment

The V60's portrait touchscreen on the centre console sets the class standard – not only for design, but ease of use too. The menu is intuitive and the screen responsive. There are a few built-in apps for you to use, including music streaming service Spotify. To make the most of the music, we’d recommend upgrading to the 13-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. Sat-nav comes as standard along with wireless smartphone charging, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
