Posting this here, since there's no forum for the new V60. Swedish car magazine <I>Teknikens Värld</I> has drawings of the new V60 on the cover of its current issue:<p><IMG SRC="http://www.teknikensvarld.se/_internal/cimg!0/or2x57mk2e14ib9l9rfb9a2j2kdnxgq.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>In my opinion, the rear is pretty ugly. Hopefully the production model will improve the esthetics considerably.

Re: New V60 drawing (Munin)

What would be the point of a V60 when there's already a new V70 and perfectly wonderful V50.

Re: New V60 drawing (C70drvr)

The V60 is going to replace the V50 by 2011. The new car should just be a couple of inches larger, based on the big platform and get the big engine. The V70 is a traditional old fashion Volvo wagon, the V60 should be sportier and a direct competitor to the Audi A4.<p>The point is that Europeans and even more the Scandinavian love hatchback/wagon cars. Basically: Americans will buy for 70% the S60 sedan version, European for 70% the V60 wagon version. So, for the small extra cost of the S60 development, it definitely worth every single coins to design a wagon from it.<br>

Re: New V60 drawing (Munin)

Nice! That's exactly the sort of job I hoped they'd do with the V60. Now just put a direct injection T6 and a dual-clutch transmission in it, and I'll have a real indecision problem between the S60 and V60 when it comes to replacing my current S60. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: New V60 drawing (CaptainBeowulf)

Love the idea, don't really like the way it was executed in this sketch/guess... If only it could be available when my lease is up in 14 months....

Re: New V60 drawing (Munin)

So I'm the only who who doesn't like the rear? I like the front 90%. If I cover up the rear 10%, it looks great.

V60 would more likely get a tailgate like the new V70 ie the light clusters split. NB, the boot doesnt open on the S60 concept car from which this rendering is based.

Re: New V60 drawing (VolvoD)

I think on both the new S60 and this V60 the light clusters will just be redesigned slightly so that they split. The next-gen S60 would have an extremely impractical trunk opening if they don't. The overall shape doesn't really have to change, just a split through the lights with a different arrangement of the brake/indicator/fog sections of the lights within the overall cluster around the split.

Re: (Bender)

Now - Peter Horbury , New Head of Design at Volvo Car Corporation Does This Mean - Direct Injection for the Volvo Motors @ 2000 psi.<p>That would really make Powerful & Crisp T6 , It's Pretty Nice Now , but<br>Direct Injection would give about 6%-8% Better Mpg & Still Add 25 Hp.<br>Smoother & Earlier Increase in Torque - allowing for Up Shifts Sooner which adds to the Mpg Figure . So 16 City and 22 Highway -could be<br>19 City & 27 Highway - One Tester Reported He was able to get 24Mpg with Current XC60 Drive-Line.<p>Better Yet - Bring On the D5 with the Latest Turbo & Direct Injection<br>& Dual Shifter - 38-40 Mpg most Likely ! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
