At first glance, the 2019 V60 shares just about every angle with its bigger brother, the V90.

The V60's rear glass isn't as raked, giving its rear end more of a traditional wagon shape than the V90.

Throw in a livelier pair of character lines on the side and some chiseled sculpting in the front bumper, and you've got a perfectly proportioned midsize wagon.

The V60's standard leather seats are plenty comfortable, but on the base Momentum trim, buyers have the no-cost option to switch to a plaid cloth.

When the V60 launches in the US in 2019, it'll have three powertrain choices: the front-wheel-drive T5 with its 250-horsepower I4, the all-wheel-drive T6 with its 316-horsepower I4 and the plug-in-hybrid T8 with 400 net horsepower.

The T6 engine is available on every new Volvo with the exception of XC40, but I think it feels most at home in the V60.

The eight-speed automatic feels smooth and unobtrusive.

The V60 does carry a bit of traditional European-market composure (read: stiffness) around town in Comfort mode, some of which can definitely be pinned to the Inscription's large wheels and thin tires.

Care by Volvo, the automaker's new subscription-based program, will be available on the V60 when it launches.
