Volvo V60 T8 Twin Engine hybrid practicality & boot space
|Length||Width||Height||Boot volume (seats up)|
Volvo estates have long been a byword for practicality and the V60 certainly doesn't disgrace itself in this regard. Only slightly tight knee and foot room for rear-seat passengers count against it, but otherwise it's so spacious you'll wonder why anyone would need the even larger V90 model.
Volvo V60 T8 Twin Engine hybrid interior space, storage & comfort
Occupants should have few complaints about space inside the V60 T8, with a six-foot passenger being able to sit behind a six-foot driver with no issues. Head and legroom in the back are fine, but feet can feel a little squeezed if the front seats are in their lowest position.
The transmission tunnel is also quite large, which can impact on passengers in the left and right rear seats as well as its obvious effect on anyone in the middle seat. Storage-wise, there's plenty of space to put your stuff, with a decent-sized glovebox, a large cubbyhole between the front seats and big doorbins all round.
With all seats in place, the V60 T8 will swallow 529 litres of luggage – slightly more than you get in the Mercedes E300 de estate – increasing to 1,441 if you drop the seats flat. And if you have significantly less than a full bootload to carry, a fold-up shopping area prevents your groceries flying around the place as you drive.
