Engine & Performance

One of the most important things to determine is the performance of a car. The Volvo XC60 models come with two different engines. The base 6-cylinder 3.2 liter engine is considered to be one of the best.

The engine is powerful and accelerates well. The XC60 exudes confidence that you experience a smooth drive and peace of mind. Obviously the bigger engine means higher running costs, but you will also have to bear in mind the size and weight of the vehicle.

Volvo is renowned for working hard on fuel efficiency for its vehicles. This applies to their commitment to reduce the CO2 emissions.



The Volvo XC60 is acclaimed for its eye-catching design. The exterior is definitely worth a second look, especially with the redesigned front features that are included in this model.

The same body color is used throughout and the new shape of the headlamps coupled up with the front grille make the Volvo XC60 look much wider and more focused.



Besides taking into account the way the car looks from outside, many people give a great deal of attention to the interior. After all, while driving it is important to feel at ease.

The Volvo XC60 offers plenty of legroom, coupled up with various luxurious features, such as wood inlays and silk metal frames.

There are several electronic features worth noting, including: a navigation system, a DVD entertainment system at the rear, and several safety features as well. There is also a heated windscreen, cornering light for improved visibility, and advanced safety systems.

Added Features

The latter feature is considered as a main consideration in all Volvo vehicles. It is an advanced system that helps assist the driver while trying to find his way around, at the same time alerting him of blind spots, cross traffic and road sign information.

The Adaptive Digital Display is yet another interesting feature. There are three graphic themes one can choose from, the Elegance, the Eco and the Performance theme. As the name implies, the background illumination can be adapted according to the driver’s mood or preferences.


Connectivity is given importance as it is essential for drivers these days to be able to connect to the internet while driving.

The cargo space is more than sufficient, making it an ideal family SUV. There are integrated booster seats and a pop-out picnic table.

The Volvo XC60 has been designed with the family in mind, and it certainly will meet your expectations, making it the ideal SUV to have your family travel in comfort and style.
