The 2011 V60 from Volvo was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show. The car is based on the S60, and has eye-catching features include a style that is sporty, plush cabin interiors that is complete with a five-inch infotainment display and urbane wood trim. The vehicle has a spacious boot, which can hold 430 liters (15.2 cubic feet) of luggage.

Volvo says a variety of engines will be offered – the 3.0-liter T6 petrol produces 304 PS (224 kW / 300 hp) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft), which allows the AWD car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
