Volvo XC60

Volvo XC60 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Momentum 4-door SUV AWD Automatic
  • Road Test
  • Predicted Reliability
  • Predicted Owner Satisfaction
Volvo's second generation XC60 is a scaled down version of the XC90, complete with an elegant, Scandinavian-themed interior. Like its big brother, it suffers from convoluted and distracting controls and an overly stiff ride. The 250-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is responsive enough but the eight-speed automatic shows an occasional hiccup. We measured 23 mpg overall on premium. A 316-hp version of that engine powers the uplevel T6 and a 400-hp plug-in hybrid is called the T8. The cabin benefits from supremely comfortable seats, a relatively roomy back and a nicely finished cargo hold. Volvo's advanced safety systems, City Safety, encompasses both low- and high-speed automatic emergency braking. Some new features such as Steer Assist are available as well. Note that blind-spot warning is only optional.

Volvo XC60 2017 Trim Shown: 2017 R-Design
The XC60 is a compact, upscale SUV that's pleasurable to drive but not as sporty as some competitors. The ride is a little stiff, but handling is responsive and secure at its limits. The 281-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder performs well, but fuel economy is mediocre at 17 mpg overall. A 3.2-liter six is also available. Most exterior noises are well suppressed. The cabin is attractively finished with high-quality materials and offers integrated child booster seats in the rear seat. The seats are well shaped and comfortable, but rear legroom is a bit tight. A wide variety of advanced safety gear is offered. Stability control with roll mitigation is standard, along with Volvo's City Safety system, which is more widely known as forward collision mitigation. The technology package also offers adaptive cruise control, collision warning, and a lane-departure warning system. An optional blind-spot sensor alerts drivers to hidden vehicles on their flanks.
