The Volvo XC60: Luxury features without a luxury price

May 17, 2019 6:01 am |

When it comes to luxury SUVs, the Volvo XC60 stands out in a crowded field. An award-winning, mid-size crossover, the XC60 has the style, comfort and technology to make it the SUV of choice for the modern family.

Safety, style and luxury aplenty

The Volvo XC60 is a world-beater. And that's not just us saying it; the XC60 was Drive's Car of the Year award for Best Luxury SUV under $80,000. It was also named Wheels' Car of the Year in 2018, where it had to pass muster on all of the award's criteria: function, technology, efficiency, safety, and value. The XC60 was judged to have them all, and became the first Volvo ever to win the coveted title.

Every model features an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive transmission, as well as high-tech features like keyless entry and a fully digital instrument cluster. Even at the base model, the XC60 delivers exceptional value alongside jaw-dropping luxury and style.

A car designed for humans

Unlike too many other vehicles, the XC60 is designed with humans in mind. That might seem like a bizarre statement – aren't all cars designed for humans? Yes, but not with the attention to the detail the XC60 brings to the table.

Take the tailgate, for instance. Imagine you've come out of the supermarket with arms full of groceries. In a regular SUV, this makes opening the rear door rather difficult. Not so with the XC60. A sensor under the bumper means all you have to do is wave your foot beneath it and, like magic, the tailgate opens. It's this design for humans that makes the XC60 feel like it's adapting to your lifestyle, rather than the other way around.

A smart driving assistant like no other

The XC60 helps you with more than just opening the tailgate. A raft of smart features make everyday driving that little bit easier; Pilot Assist automatically steers to help keep you in your lane; a 360 degree camera makes it easier to see what's around you, and Park Assist makes getting into that spot a breeze. 

One thing's for certain – when it comes to mid-size SUVs, the Volvo XC60 is a class of its own.
