New infotainment experience — Sensus Connect The Digital Display theme colours are also echoed in the connected infotainment system Sensus Connect, which is now introduced in the V60 Plug-in Hybrid. As well as providing a sporty feel, the V60 delivers a ride that provides excellent comfort over any road. If the car does leave the road, Run-off Road Protection — another Volvo Cars innovation — reduces the chances of serious injury. Our voice control function allows you to operate the climate control, navigation, media and telephone features just by speaking. When I returned, the freshly cleaned V60 was sporting £95 worth of new Castrol Edge, plus new air and oil filters; the service totalled £287. The mechanical brakes are activated only when the situation requires more braking power than the rear axle can provide. The driver can also have text messages read out aloud without taking hands off the wheel.
In Europe, Volvo offers two gasoline engines, two diesel engines, and two plug-in hybrid powertrains to choose from. Volvo also fits a more fuel efficient diesel engine instead of a petrol, which will ensure the strong eco credentials continue when the batteries are flat, too. Twin Engine technology delivers a powerful yet efficient driving experience that includes pure electric propulsion, balanced hybrid mode for everyday use and the combined combustion and pure electric power that will change your driving experience forever. Instead, Active High Beam Control makes it possible keep the headlights on high beam continuously. Bring your own style to the V60 with our range of styling accessories.
Climate, driving style and route will have a further impact on the actual fuel consumption. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 91 mpg in a traditional petrol car. Permanent high beam with groundbreaking technology The Active High Beam Control eliminates the need to switch between low and high beam. The car also has a diesel-powered heater. Low-friction technology helps to balance smooth power with exceptional efficiency, giving you responsive acceleration with low fuel consumption and emissions.
No problems with the progressive-feeling brakes, unlike the snatchy response of some regenerative hybrid systems. A plug-in hybrid is similar in principal to a Toyota Prius hybrid, but with a bigger set of batteries that can be recharged from the mains, thus extending the electriconly running. The stretch south of the river flows much better. Cross Traffic Alert — covering your back Cross Traffic Alert uses the radar sensors at the rear end of the car to alert the driver to crossing traffic from the sides when reversing out of a parking space. Inscription trim includes decor in Driftwood — a unique wood treatment that is satisfying to look at and touch. Ironic given that the V60 is plugged into the mains, to feed different battery cells which power the hybrid system.

Support for Apple CarPlay allows you to link an Apple iPhone. Half-an-hour later, climbing the hill to Angel, the range is down to 15 miles. A total of 19,571 units have sold in Europe through December 2015. The cloud-based services allow the driver to find and pay for parking from the car, discover new restaurants at the destination, stream favourite music seamlessly and much more.
According to British Gas, the cost to me would be a trifling £115 for a 16amp charger, or £214 for a 30amp charger, which would juice the V60 in five hours. The ride is a bit lumpy, steering response leisurely — I almost drove over my first roundabout, having not deployed sufficient lock — and you can feel how the extra 300kg weight impacts on dynamic sharpness. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 13 mi. The driving range is up to 50 km 31 mi. Each speaker is positioned to optimise acoustics, and there is a dashboard-mounted tweeter to cut down acoustic reflection from the windscreen. The interaction between diesel and electric power is handled via a control system, and the driver has the option to choose the preferred driving mode via three buttons on the instrument panel: Pure, Hybrid and Power. Regeneration of braking energy A two-stage braking system is yet another smart feature of the Volvo Plug-in Hybrid.
Heated steering wheel To give drivers in cold climate extra comfort, three-spoke steering wheels can be specified with electric heating. In addition, Cross Traffic Alert helps you to reverse out of a parking space with increased awareness by warning you of potential road users directly behind you. A range of load accessories help you use the abilities of your V60 to the full. The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. You operate the gears and brakes according to the screen prompts, and your car does the rest. Empty stretches of motorway and parked cars around town have triggered more than a dozen false alarms of red flashing lights and deafening beeps.
Despite determined jinking, the front right tyre clipped some, and within five miles the wheel was vibrating like an Ann Summers party. Active Beam was brilliant ahem : simply leave high beam on, and be amazed as the mid-section of light drops out to avoid dazzling an oncoming driver, leaving a surrounding aura of brightness. The V60 T6 Twin Engine and T8 Twin Engine have plug-in hybrid powertrains that deliver the instantaneous power of electric propulsion, and the capacity for zero-emissions driving, without any compromise. It uses radar and camera technology to identify potential hazards such as other vehicles, cyclists, pedestrians and large animals ahead, day or night. This is done by an ingenious projector module mechanism integrated into the headlamp. Comfortable sport seat Supportive yet comfortable seats that ensure a fresh and relaxed arrival after the longest of journeys have been one of Volvo strengths for decades.
It can help reduce some of the effort required when driving at higher speeds or in heavy traffic. It can then steer the car into a parallel space just 1. The V60 Plug-in Hybrid is also available in an R-Design version. Automatic Level Adjustment creates a consistent level of volume and intensity, while special algorithms adjust the output to compensate for external noise. Public charging is always done through a charging station. It uses sensors to gauge the size of parallel or perpendicular spaces as you drive by them, and lets you know if one is big enough. And to what end: 59.
