If you’re seeking a crossover SUV that’s equally at home in the city as on the open road, look no further than the new Volvo XC60. Take your pick from six premium trim levels – SE, SE Lux, R-Design, R-Design Lux, Volvo Ocean Race Edition and the Nav – plus a host of custom features to make it your own.
For journeys on and off the beaten track, this crossover is the perfect fit. The new Volvo XC60 is more compact than the bigger XC90 model, yet it features similar curvaceous styling. Select the SE Lux trim to gain sophisticated 18-inch alloy wheels, or the sporty R-Design for a bolstered rear bumper. Whichever model you go for, you can be sure you’re getting premium Swedish design at its finest.
An upmarket interior awaits on board the new Volvo XC60. From your heightened driving position, you’ll enjoy an optimum view of the road ahead. As for materials, you can expect nothing less than the highest quality, ensuring your complete comfort. The floating centre console places everything within easy reach of the driver, along with a handy cubbyhole for hiding away smaller items.
Families will welcome the addition of the pioneering rear seat cushions, which can be raised to create booster seats at two pre-set heights. You’ll also love the 495-litre boot, which increases to 1,455 litres when you fold down the rear seats.
Engines and performance
You can opt between front or all-wheel drive depending on your driving style – and you’ll always get a class-leading chassis with corner traction control for outstanding handling. When it comes to engines, your diesel options include the 190bhp D4 – a good choice if you want low running costs, as it averages 60mpg with low-cost road tax. If you want a punchy petrol unit, choose the T5 – it has a 0 to 60mph time of around seven seconds.
Safety and technology
The new Volvo XC60’s safety equipment is exceptional – and it’s earned this model a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. A suite of airbags provides all-round protection for big and small occupants. Stability systems such as emergency braking scan for pedestrians, bringing the car to a halt when they detect a potential impact.
When it comes to in-car technology, even entry-level models are well equipped. The SE features Bluetooth and digital radio to keep you connected and informed on the move. There’s also an optional Sensus infotainment system across the range, complete with an intuitive satellite navigation system designed to make life easier.
