It's been a long wait, from the announcement last February, to waiting until December to order, but she's finally here-my 2019 V60 Inscription! Still fresh off the boat, but here's a few pics in the meantime.

Congrats! Did it come with the “Full LED Active High Beam System” headlights like the new 2019 S60’s? Hoping automakers get the green light to enable them this year.

They at least say it on the headlights themselves, and there's an 'A' (auto) high beam setting on the stalk, but I've yet to take a night drive. I'll certainly report back once I know.

Tried the active high beams. Works pretty well. Detected oncoming vehicles/vehicles ahead, but not so much for cross traffic (4-way stops for example-not that that's a huge deal). Only nibble is their hesitance to turn back on when the coast is clear. There's sensitivity settings, so I'll have to have a fiddle.

Crystal White?
Yep! A very noticeable pearl effect.

Thanks! I didn't come across your post showing that one until after I'd ordered, but it helped reassure me it was a good combo to choose.

Congrats! Please update us on your initial impressions...
I'm coming from a 10yr old Accord, so everything's new and wonderful to me! Handling is very good. Feels very composed in the twisties, and is definitely more nimble turning at low speeds than a V90 I rented. I've been able to get decent fuel economy so far. As long as there's not excessive stop-and-go, I can average 23-ish mpg. Stop/start does a decent job of sensing times when turning off isn't ideal, but auto hold is a bit more jumpy than I'd like. It's definitely a low car. I tend to raise my seat up a bit, and couldn't go too far without hitting my head. Low load floor and all, but I can tell why people like crossovers for easier access. Headlights are amazing, as are the seats, speakers, and material quality. Questions about other areas, please let me know. I'll update as I notice more stuff.

Where are you located?

Congrats! The white looks really nice on the wagon. Are those 19" rims?
How does the engine exhaust sound under boost?

I ordered my V60 in late November, got a build confirmation late January, and got off the boat at Port Hueneme last Tuesday. I'll still not heard from my dealership on an ETA :(

Yep, they're the 19's. It's been either cold or rainy here in GA lately, so no windows-down pulls yet unfortunately! There is a decent exhaust note at cold starts though

BTW, it took roughly 6 days for mine to show up at the dealer. So hopefully any day for you now!

Congrats on the new ride. It's definitely a step up from what you had prior.

Enjoy and congrats again!!. When the dust settles a bit, please post more photos.
