2011 Volvo V60 spy shots

The 2011 Volvo S60 was just fully unveiled last week ahead of its planned public debut at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. On Monday, we brought you some of the first spy shots of the wagon based off the new S60's underpinnings, the 2011 Volvo V60, and today, we have updated photos of the car undergoing more winter testing.

Like the new Volvo S60, the V60 is expected to get a range of four- and five-cylinder diesel and gasoline engines for global consumption, though U.S.-market models will likely get only the 304-horsepower T6 turbocharged 3.0-liter engine and the new direct-injection, 203-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. Front-wheel drive will be the base option, while all-wheel drive will be available on the four-cylinder and standard on the T6-equipped models.

The new S60's graceful lines will likely also transfer to the V60, though there will be some obvious compromises toward the rear of the wagon. The chassis that underpins it will be offered with a choice between Dynamic and Comfort tunings, with the Comfort version the standard. The Comfort chassis setup is exactly what the name implies--a softer setting for more relaxed and isolated driving. The Dynamic chassis setup will appeal to those that might wish for a sport sedan but actually need the space of the wagon.

There's a full slate of advanced tech gadgetry planned for the S60/V60 range as well, including a corner traction control system and pedestrian detection capability. For more details on the S60 and the tech that will underpin the V60, check out our 2011 Volvo S60 preview, or take a look at our preview renderings of the 2011 V60 for a glimpse at what the car will look like under the camo cladding.
