Volvo's second-generation XC60 is a scaled-down version of the XC90, complete with an elegant, high-quality interior.
Like its big brother, it suffers from convoluted and distracting controls and an overly stiff ride.
The 250-hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is responsive, but the eight-speed automatic transmission 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 system, City Safety, encompasses both city- and high-speed automatic emergency braking.
For 2021 blind spot warning and rear cross traffic are standard.
