The 2016 Volvo V60 T6 R-Design is one of GAYOT's Top 10 Fuel-Efficient Cars

Introducing the all-new 2016 Volvo T6 R-Design wagon. From the company famous for its station wagons, the 2016 Volvo V60 T6 does not disappoint. A true wagon, not a wanna-be SUV or crossover, this smooth riding, all-wheel-drive family car looks great, holds lots of cargo and delivers on the virtues of the wagon form.

With a 325-horsepower turbocharged inline-6 sending power through all four wheels, the latest iteration of the archetypal Volvo wagon is a far cry from the brick-shaped, 4-cylinder 145 and 245DL models of yore. Still, a hint of that quirky-yet-practical Swedish DNA lives on in the 2016 Volvo V60 T6.

Warranty/Service: 4-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, 12-year corrosion warranty, Volvo roadside assistance
