Volvo V60 Interior & Cargo Rating

2021 V60 Interior

There may very well be no such thing as a Volvo with an unappealing interior, and the V60 won't be the first. Regardless of trim, the cabin is spacious and stylishly appointed, with genuine leather offered even on the base model. Similarly, the entry-point Momentum receives a plethora of tech features covering comfort, convenience, and safety. Considering how much you get, it's quite the feat that the Swedish engineers were able to lay it all out in such an efficient manner. Accessing everything through a single screen may take a bit of learning, but you'll appreciate the lack of clutter once you get used to it. Naturally, as you move up the scale, more features are added and the level of luxury improves.

Seating and Interior Space

Wagons are designed to haul whole families around with ease, and the Volvo V60 is no exception. There is loads of room on offer, no matter where you are seated. However, there may not be quite enough shoulder room in the back to seat three adults side-by-side. You could conceivably squeeze in three children, though. Of course, passengers get spoiled up front with room to stretch their legs, but those in the back will have a hard time finding anything to complain about. Both front seats are power-adjustable with lumbar support, and the driver's seat offers memory settings for multiple drivers. Heating can be added via the available packages, although the Recharge has this function as standard, along with extra lumbar support and passenger seat memory. The upper trim levels of the V60 add ventilation and massage functions, though. Getting in and out of the wagon is a simple affair, but the length of the vehicle can hinder visibility at times. Luckily, all the driver-aids needed to overcome this come standard.

Interior Colors and Materials

Trying to find a piece of cheap plastic inside the Volvo is a futile endeavor. Every surface is coated in only the best, and the seats offer leather upholstery right from the get-go. Your color options at this level include Blond, Maroon Brown, and Charcoal with Linear Lime wood inlays or Blond City Weave with Iron Ore inlays. The R-Design steps it up a notch with Nappa leather and Open Grid textile upholstery in a choice of Charcoal and Slate, paired with Metal Mesh inlays. The V60 Recharge gets the same interior but in Charcoal only. At the top of the standard range, the Inscription reverts to plain leather, but it pairs this with Driftwood inlays, instead.

2021 V60 Trunk and Cargo Space

With the advent of the hyper practical SUV, wagons are no longer considered the kings of cargo. However, they still supply loads more trunk space than your run-of-the-mill sedan. That said, the V60 is not topping the segment in this regard. Behind the rear seats, it presents buyers with 23.2 cubic feet of cargo capacity, a full cube less than the A4 allroad offers. The hybrid doesn't sacrifice any of this to make room for its battery, and the maximum capacity with the seats down is 50.9 cubic feet. However, it does get storage pockets beneath the floor, which more than make up for this. In either case, you get a set of grocery hooks and elastic straps to tie down any loose items.

Around the cabin, there are a variety of storage solutions for smaller items. The glove compartment and center console are the most spacious, but the door pockets are deep and wide enough for water bottles or the like. Each row of seats also receives a pair of cupholders.

2021 V60 Infotainment and Features


While not all that much is new, the Volvo V60 is still one of the most well-equipped vehicles on the road, even in its most basic guise. Leather upholstery comes standard, along with a panoramic sunroof and dual-zone climate control. Both front seats are power-adjustable with lumbar support, but only the driver's seat has memory as standard. Once you upgrade to the R-Design, extra lumbar support and quad-zone climate control, while the Inscription wraps the shifter in leather, too. Naturally, you get a variety of conveniences such as keyless entry and push-button start, but it's the safety suite that makes the wagon so great for families. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are new additions to the entry-level offering, bolstering the rear park assist, lane keep assist, forward collision avoidance, and cruise control. The gas-fed V60 can add a surround-view camera, a head-up display, and Pilot Assist to this, along with rear park assist, but the Recharge gets all of this gratis. It also gets the optional heated steering wheel and heated seats, along with a 12-volt cargo area power outlet.


Made for the family, the Volvo comes equipped with all the comforts you need to make a long drive more enjoyable. The base model receives a nine-inch touchscreen programmed with Bluetooth functions, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and FM/Satellite radio, which is paired with a high-quality ten-speaker sound system. The upper trims are a modest step up with Sensus Navigation Pro and a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. If that still isn't enough to whet your appetite, a 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins sound system is available to the R-Design and Inscription. As you'd expect from the ultra-opulent Recharge, it gets the best of the best included with the $20k extra you have to pay just to buy it. Interacting with the suite can take a little practice, since everything is done via a single touchscreen and you need to learn the menus. Once that's done, though, it becomes second nature to flit between applications without taking your eyes off the road for more than a split second.
