2019 Volvo V60 is the right-sized wagon for the job

It looks good, it drives good, and it's loaded with safety-oriented tech. What's not to like?

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.
