Cost and actual use: Volvo V60 B3 Momentum Pro

“Quick-start performance adds to the V60’s spacious comfort, as does the fine workmanship. Suspension comfort and handling talent are under control.” This is the conclusion of test editor Thomas Hellmanzik about the Volvo V60 B3 Momentum Pro, which competed with the VW Passat in a comparison of two medium-range station wagons with a basic petrol engine. The B3 is also a cheaper way to drive the V60. But are the daily expenses and costs also at a low level?

Our test application

According to the WLTP standard, the Volvo V60 B3 Momentum Pro should consume 6.4 liters per 100 kilometers. The average test, however, is 8.2 liters, which increases fuel costs for this distance to 14.35 euros. In our Eco cycle, the Swedish station wagon comes with 6.3 liters, under the WLTP promise, which is why the fuel cost drops to 11.03 euros. Another extreme can be seen in the sports circuit: Because the V60 uses 9.9 liters, you have to fill up with premium gasoline worth 17.33 euros per 100 km. Fuel costs are calculated according to the current daily fuel prices on our partner website (23.02.2024 / Super: 1,75 Euro/L).

This is how testing is done

The automotive and sports test uses consist of three usage trips with different weights. The so-called “passenger use” accounts for 70 percent. This is a journey from home to work that is on average 21 kilometers long. The economy driven period, approximately 275 kilometers long is counted as 15 percent. The remaining 15 percent goes to the driver group of sports. The length is roughly the same as the Eco route, but the route has a larger section of road and therefore a higher average speed. The basis for calculating fuel costs is always the price quoted on the “more fuel” website on the day the article was created.

Monthly maintenance costs include maintenance, wear parts and vehicle taxes based on an assumed annual mileage of 15,000 and 30,000 kilometers without depreciation. The basis of the calculation is trial use, three-year holding period, no-claims class SF12 for liability and comprehensive insurance for Allianz, including discounts for garage parking and restrictions for certain drivers (not under 21 years). At Allianz, SF12 means a discount rate of 34 percent for liability and 28 percent for comprehensive insurance.

No, I’m just looking at the look and feel.

Yes, if the car is too expensive to maintain, I won’t buy it.

I haven’t thought about it before, but in the future I will do some research before buying a new car.
