Volvo XC60 Overview

While a good choice overall, the XC60 isn't as engaging to drive or as 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, turbo six-cylinder performs well, but fuel economy is mediocre at 17-mpg overall. Turbo four-cylinder engines are new, but are only available on front-wheel-drive versions. Wind and road noise are well-suppressed. The interior is well-constructed, with high-quality materials. The seats are well-shaped and comfortable, but rear leg room is a bit tight. City Safety automatic braking is standard, and crash-test performance is excellent, but opting for other cutting-edge safety gear gets pricey.
