Notable Features:

  • V60 InteriorNew Drive E-powertrain
  • Lane keeping assist
  • Parallel parking assist

Final Impression:
Only drove the new Drive-E powertrain mostly on the highway. It’s fun to drive with no noticeable turbo lag, power is there when you need it to pass another car on the road. The lane keeping assist kicked in a few times even though it wasn’t needed. It tugs on the wheel if it feels you are drifting out of a lane.
