Hey all!

I just picked up the 2016 V60RD and wanted to share a quick pic. I'll have more shots to follow soon. The Crystal White Pearl looks great in person, just in case anyone is on the fence with this color. Impressions coming in the next week or so, after I put a few more miles on it.

Congrats on the new purchase! Crystal White was my initial choice coming from Ice White, but my wife insisted on Passion Red or Rebel Blue. It is a great wagon and love every moment driving it.

Congrats, and I too am biased to the color you went with!

Black is best

Two months in and loving it - assume you will too.

After owning two black cars prior to this, I was ready to try something new. But I do love black. It's a shame they didn't offer rebel blue for 16...

Volvo does offer rebel blue, you just need to buy the 2016 Polestar edition. :)

Beautiful! I got my 15.5 in July (Black), but I can honestly say that I wanted and wish I had ended up with white.

Nice car I just picked one up myself back in December. Just put a set of winter wheels on mine and tinted windows. It's same white as yours. It's nice color. Volvo has done a great job with this Vehicle.

I also have a black 2015.5 V60 R-Design with a 3.0L Turbo - unlike all of the other new cars with their 2.0L Super Turbos. I split my time between Texas and New Mexico (summer). I've added a bike rack for my black Orbea Orca! Enjoying the drive.

Seeing that there's a possibility of Volvo moving away from the 6-cylinder altogether in their newest models, I'm glad I had the opportunity to purchase now. That's not to say their aren't advantages to having the smaller turbo/supercharged engine (weight savings, fuel efficiency). I just couldn't stand to wait another year or two not knowing how the new V60 would turn out.

Congrats and welcome! Very nice!!! I am biased though, I picked up a 15.5 Crystal White V60R this past July. I bought it with racks and mats. Pulled off the bumper and installed the hitch the next day. Camping with the family the day after that.

Best wagon I have ever owned. You won't be disappointed.

It's not a possibility, it's already happened. The newest RD that are just hitting the dealer lots now have the 4 cylinders in them. The last 6 cylinders went off the line in November.

Looks great! You might have convinced me to invest in some racks and storage for the longer trips. :)
