The new Volvo XC60 represents the best of both worlds – on the outside, it's rugged and tough to indicate its muscular performance, and on the inside, it's as comfortable as a luxury saloon. This combination has endeared it to motorists with a variety of requirements, and the all-new, second-generation Volvo XC60 has been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Volvo XC60 comes with our T8 Twin Engine powertrain, a plug-in hybrid that gives you performance, efficiency and low emissions without compromise. This is Volvo Cars’ intelligent approach to power.
The XC60 provides more than enough power for almost any terrain or situation, thanks to its varied engine range. The new four-cylinder D4 diesel unit provides the same level of performance usually reserved for six and eight-cylinder units – up to 181bhp, with low CO2 emissions of just 117g/km. Further diesel and petrol variants offer even more power, with the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) T6 petrol offering a staggering 304bhp.
You can tailor your XC60 even further with regard to handling. Thanks to three finely-balanced chassis options – Dynamic, R-Design Sport and Four C – you can choose exactly the type of ride that you want. Regardless of your choice, however, you are guaranteed a smooth experience which few of the XC60's competitors can hope to match.
Various driver assistance technologies are included in the XC60, allowing you to relax and enjoy the driving experience. Choose All-Wheel Drive and you will feel the benefit of the Instant Traction system, which is designed to increase grip and maintain control. Additional extras include Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control – ideal for navigating steep terrains. For urban environments, the City Safety system activates the brakes automatically at speeds up to 31mph, ensuring added safety.
The technological advancement of the XC60 is not limited to the drivetrain, however. The interior is awash with advanced features designed to assist you on your journey, including the Adaptive Digital Display on the dashboard. This system allows you to choose between three modes to suit your mood, and serves as a visible and clear information system. The boot offers a generous amount of space, thanks to the 40/20/40 split rear seats, while a choice of three trim levels provides an extra touch of luxury.
The XC60's straight front grille and refined proportions conceal the toughness and versatility within. Exuding sophistication, the car's superlative body design nevertheless projects a spirited attitude which inspires confidence. Exterior flourishes include a choice of 18, 19 and 20-inch wheels.
