White Volvo XC60 Exterior Front Driving

Initially released in 2008, the XC60 has received multiple updates during its life, going on to become one of Volvo's best selling cars thanks to its good levels of practicality and premium feel. As a mid-size SUV, the XC60 sits between the XC40 and XC90 SUVs within Volvo's range.

However, the competitive SUV market requires cars to stand out from the crowd, and the XC60 does so by offering a range of great features, including:

  • Bundles of equipment as standard
  • Comfortable ride
  • Excellent safety rating
  • Spacious interior
  • Multiple powertrains to choose from

Engines and Driving Experience

The XC60 isn't quite as dynamic as rivals, but this won't repel most buyers in this segment of the market as many prioritise comfort; something that the XC60 possesses.

Petrol/Diesel mild hybrid (MHEV)

  • B4 Petrol 2.0-litre: 194bhp, 0 to 62mph in 8.1 seconds, up to 38mpg WLTP
  • B5 Petrol 2.0-litre: 247bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7 seconds, up to 37mpg WLTP
  • B6 Petrol 2.0-litre: 296bhp, 0 to 62mph in 6.2 seconds, up to 34mpg WLTP
  • B4 Diesel 2.0-litre: 194bhp, 0 to 62mph in 8.3 seconds, up to 45mpg WLTP
  • B5 Diesel 2.0-litre: 232bhp, 0 to 62mph in 7.1 seconds, up to 46mpg WLTP

Plug-in hybrid (PHEV)

  • T6 2.0-litre: 335bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.9 seconds, up to 257mpg and 49-mile EV range with the batteries fully charged.
  • T8 2.0-litre: 385bhp, 0 to 62mph in 5.5 seconds, up to 257mpg and 48-mile EV range with the batteries fully charged.

Other engine variants can be found such as naturally aspirated petrol and diesel models and a more powerful 'Engineered by Polestar' variant.

Practicality and Running Costs

Volvo XC60 Boot

There'll be more than enough room for five adults to ride comfortably within the XC60, with plenty of head and legroom throughout. You can also fit a couple of child seats to the ISOFIX mounting points in the rear, but the rear doors don't open as wide as some rivals, which can make life harder when ensuring the kids are buckled up.

You will get plenty of cubby holes and storage compartments for their toys however, as well as a large 483-litre boot space for the family's luggage (slightly less if opting for a PHEV). Folding the rear seats is also easily done, giving more room to play with when loading larger bits of luggage.

SUVs often have higher running costs than smaller family cars, and this is reflected in the XC60's insurance, ranging from groups 31 to 43 (out of 50) dependent upon specification. Low cost servicing can be taken out at any Evans Halshaw dealership.

Interior, Technology, and Safety

Volvo XC60 Interior

Step inside the cabin and you'll be greeted by an interior that's built to the highest of standards. Various premium materials have been used to give a plush feel, whilst still being robust enough to deal with the scuffs of everyday life.

A large touchscreen system is the centrepiece of a very well laid out dashboard that's easy to use. A lack of physical knobs and buttons does mean you have to occasionally take your eyes off the road to change any settings.

You'll have very few complaints when it comes to the standard equipment too. As well as the large touchscreen, you'll get built-in Google with voice control, cruise control and automatic LED headlights as standard.

Euro NCAP issued the XC60 with a full five-star safety rating thanks to bundles of available safety equipment, including:

  • Run off road mitigation/protection
  • WHIPS whiplash protection system
  • Front and rear park assist with rear camera
  • Intellisafe Surround Pack (including blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert)
  • Oncoming lane mitigation

Is the Volvo XC60 right for me?

If you're after an SUV that offers a good level of practicality as well as high levels of safety and a premium interior, then the XC60 is the place to look. It isn't quite as thrilling to drive as some rivals, but you will enjoy a more comfortable ride than most.

Speaking of rivals, you may want to take a look at the Alfa Romeo Stelvio or Jaguar F-PACE as both offer luxury as well as practicality. If you're working with a smaller budget, you may want to consider the Ford Kuga or Skoda Karoq as both are great value for money.
