The redesigned 2018 XC60 is Volvo's modern, up-to-date compact luxury SUV. The current XC60 is a bit long in the tooth. Styled like a baby Volvo XC90, the new XC60 will be available with a choice of three engines, each mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. Preliminary specifications show the base T5 features a 250-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine. The T6 uses a 316-hp, 2.0-liter turbo and supercharged four-cylinder. The top model is the T8, which is a plug-in hybrid that uses the turbo supercharged four-cylinder engine. Total system output is approximately 400 hp from the gasoline engine and electric motor. The 2018 XC60 is longer than the current one but lower. The cabin looks very much like that of the XC90, down to the large touch-screen infotainment system that dominates the center of the dashboard. Volvo's advanced safety system, City Safety, encompasses both low- and high-speed automatic emergency braking. Some new features such as Steer Assist will work with other parts of the City Safety system to avoid obstacles in the road ahead. Oncoming Lane Mitigation will alert drivers who have wandered out of their lane and then guide the XC60 back into the correct lane. And Volvo’s blind-spot warning system will use the Steer Assist capabilities to lower the chances of having a collision when changing lanes. There's no word yet on which features are standard or optional.
