I am sure a petrol will be added soon.

Strangely, one still cant build one one either the Swedish or German page! Some of the Swedish car mags report that T4, T5, T6 and the T8 will all be available, in Sweden at least. I would say also in Germany.

If I was in the market for such a large car, I would certainly do some serious comparison of measurements. Happily, the XC60 is big enough for my needs.

I have a V90 and have done some in-depth analysis and measurements of the cargo capacity over the past year. My conclusions are that you can fit a decent chest of drawers in the boot, but not a wardrobe. Which is unlike the old V70 into which you could fit a medium sized sofa. For the sake of completion, I was also able to get a smaller wardrobe in the C70 back in the day, but that did require the roof to be lowered and the use of a fair few bungee cords.

The new V60 does look nice though!

Is there an AWD version of the new V60 planned as it would be interesting for me when I change the XC90 and maybe downsize because I no longer tow a caravan.

Absolutely! The T6 and T8 will both come with AWD as standard, probably optional on the T5, D4 and D5.

I'm sure within 12-18 months there will also be a 'new' V60 CC.
