Volvo XC60 2018 4-door SUV
Trim Shown: T5 Inscription
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 monitoring is only optional.
Alert
This vehicle can be outfitted with a semi-autonomous driving package. Consumer Reports believes automakers should take stronger steps to ensure that vehicles with those systems are designed, deployed, and marketed safely. Please heed all warnings, and keep your hands on the wheel.
