saver pack­age,’’ says Oliver Peagam, spokesman for Volvo Cars Aus­tralia. But there are still down­sides. There is no ded­i­cated sparewheel stor­age in the S60 and V60, which means the wheel must be strapped into the lug­gage space, and the no-cost choice will not be back­dated for own­ers of mid-sized Volvos.

‘‘ It does eat a bit into the boot space,’’ ad­mits Peagam.

‘‘ But you can leave it in the garage or put it into the car for a long trip. It’s there ready for work straight away.

‘‘ Some peo­ple aren’t both­ered about the spare, but for some it’s im­por­tant. This is a flex­i­ble so­lu­tion for peo­ple who want a spare.’’

Sales of the S60 and V60 have topped 1700 cars, with 1281 S60 sedans de­liv­ered since sales be­gan in 2010 and 513 V60 wag­ons since 2011.
