Volvo XC60 Overview

A good choice in the upscale compact SUV class, the XC60 isn't as involving or sporty as the Audi Q5 or BMW X3. The ride is a little stiff, but handling is responsive and secure at its limits. The 3.0-liter, turbocharged six-cylinder performs well but fuel economy is mediocre at 17 mpg overall. For 2014 the 3.2-liter six-cylinder is replaced by a new turbocharged four-cylinder. Wind and road noise are well suppressed. The interior is nicely finished with high-quality materials. The seats are well-shaped and comfortable, but rear leg room is a bit tight. Lots of cutting-edge safety gear is available but opting for it can get fairly expensive.
