The old blocky wagons of yore may still hold a place in the hearts of purist fans, but the shapely curves of the V60 station wagon are far more seductive in our opinion. The front fascia is dominated more by the Thor's Hammer LED headlights than the grille, which is reserved in comparison. It still features the trademark diagonal bar, though, which plays host to the Volvo logo. Spin it around and large, L-shaped taillights ride up the sides, while the dual tailpipes embed themselves within the rear bumper. As standard, the wagon rides on 18-inch alloy wheels, though larger 19-inch variants are available, which the Recharge receives in a different style. The R-Design and V60 Recharge also differ in that they get a unique front bumper and grille, while the latter also receives blacked-out tailpipes. At every level, a power liftgate and panoramic sunroof are standard fare.
The V60 and V60 Recharge are essentially the same vehicle, with the same platform, so most of their dimensions match. From nose to tail, the wagon measures 187.4 inches in length, with a 113.1-inch wheelbase separating the wheels and creating a large, cozy cabin. Width is standard, too, at 75.4 inches with the mirror folded in, while each model stands 50.9 inches tall. Weight is where they invariably differ, though. The regular V60 ranges from 3,813 - 3,854 pounds, while the Recharge tips the scales at a hefty 4,528 lbs, thanks to its heavier powertrain and AWD setup.

Across the V60 range, a palette of nine colors is available for buyers to customize their ride. However, the only standard option is Black Stone. All the rest are metallic paints and require an additional investment of $645; these include Pebble Grey, Osmium Grey, Pine Grey, Denim Blue, Crystal White, Birch Light, and Fusion Red. The Recharge PHEV has a more limited palette that comprises the same standard Black Stone as well as the extra-cost Osmium Grey and Crystal White, but it also gets exclusive access to Bright Silver Metallic, which conjures the kind of futuristic images that electrification is all about. The R-Design from the non-hybrid range also has an exclusive color option to tout, Bursting Blue Metallic, although it costs no more than the other premium paints.
