Compared to the rest of Volvo's lineup, the current V60 and S60 look and feel antiquated, a strange throwback to a bygone era. The exterior styling still holds up (has there ever been a bad Volvo design?), but the V60's age is obvious from a glance. The difference in the interior is far more glaring, but unfortunately these new spy photos only show a heavily camouflaged exterior.
Overall, the new V60 basically looks like a smaller-scale version of the full-size Volvo V90 wagon. For most people, that should be a good thing. The headlights, taillights and profile are all straight off big brother. It's difficult to make out too much through the black cladding, but an opening on the front-left fender suggests that this is the T8 plug-in hybrid variant. Depending on when the car launches, the V60 may only come with electrified powertrains.
No word on when we'll see the new model, but don't expect to wait too much longer. We're sure Volvo is just as eager as we are to get it onto showroom floors and into the Autoblog garage.
