Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 27 - 74 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Volvo V60

The V60 D6 Twin Engine all-wheel drive Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) delivers some great figures on paper. The five-cylinder 2.4-litre diesel engine that's allied with its electric drivetrain is reasonably economcal in isolation, but for the sake of official fuel economy, it let's call it a 50mpg car outside of the city, where the battery has less effect.

Out of the diesels, the D2 will give you 62.8mpg average economy according to official figures, while the D3 and D4 deliver the same fuel consumption and CO2 emissions (119g/km) and a whole lot more performance.

Volvo V60

The 163bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine was the cleanest of the V60 range at launch, as it delivered C02 emissions of 138g/km (good in their day). However, pick the petrol engined 3.0-litre T6 AWD with 304bhp and this will emit 237g/km of CO2 emissions.

The D6 Twin engine is the best on paper with a 48g/km CO2 figure and theoretical range of 31 miles on battery power alone. In the real world, expect half of that, and relying more regularly on diesel power. Luckily, it sounds very good.

Volvo V60

Volvo has a good reputation for being a reliable car make so the V60 should prove trouble-free. The car maker finished in the Top 10 of a recent reliability survey and we expect V60s to be a rarity in garage workshops.
