Overall verdict

The Top Gear car review:Volvo V60 Hybrid


On the inside

Layout, finish and space

Unlike some other eco cars, the V60 is pretty conventional inside. The standard dashboard layout is as per regular models, and all the major controls are no different either. The variation comes in the displays, which are focused on showing how much energy is left in the batteries and how best you can manage it to get maximum benefit. There are also buttons on the centre console to adjust the parameters of the various systems according to driving conditions and demands.

Further back, the 12kWh lithium ion battery pack is stored beneath the boot floor, which does take up space and means the load bay could usefully be bigger: it’s been reduced to a supermini-like 310 litres and the floor is higher too. Passenger space is unchanged though.
