Strong and fuel-efficient engines
Super-comfortable front seats
High-performance hybrid model
Storage space for small items is somewhat lacking
Polestar model gets a little pricey
No AWD available on any model but the Polestar
A Momentum T5 version covers a lot of ground and meets many needs. Add as many driver aids as possible, because we could all use some help from time to time. The Polestar Engineered T8 model is excellent if you can afford it, but it's a little tough to recommend with a price tag near the $70,000 mark. Find a Volvo V60 for sale

2019 Audi A4 Allroad -- Costs more than the V60, but it also offers more luxury features and 58.5 cu ft. of cargo area.
2020 BMW 330i xDrive Sports Wagon -- The all-conquering 3 Series also comes in cool AWD wagon form, with 53 cu ft. of cargo space. A new generation of 3 Series sedan debuts for 2020, but the wagon version is still from the previous generation.
2019 Subaru Outback -- Nicely equipped, AWD is standard and there are 73.3 cu ft. of cargo space. But this is more of an SUV wannabe. Nor is it at the premium level.
Used Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon -- Much larger than the V60 and quite rare. But it's powerful and luxurious, and even has a certain charm.
