9) Volvo V60
Volvo’s new V60 is a station wagon with the soul of a sports car. It’s available with a range of engines, gearboxes and drivetrains, including the 120 hp, 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine with six-speed automatic transmission and front wheel drive.
For a sportier feel opt for the 367 hp, 2.0 litre four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged gasoline engine with eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. This combination gives the V60 a 0 to 60 mph acceleration time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
Proud of their advances in auto efficiency, connectivity and safety, Volvo have given the V60 a suite of useful features. The car’s active high beams automatically respond to oncoming cars. Adaptive cruise control dispenses with the need to constantly adapt speed to slower vehicles, even when overtaking. The V60’s Harman Kardon is one of the best in class premium audio systems.
