The Volvo XC60 is a compact luxury crossover. Volvo introduced the first generation of this luxury SUV in 2008. This release signified Volvo’s new 60 series.
Since its debut, there have been two generations released. The second generation of the XC60 made its debut in 2017.
It features a 5-door layout typical to the SUV class. Drivetrains include both front-wheel and four-wheel drive. However, Volvo made the four-wheel drive standard in 2017.
In terms of sizing, it represents the mid-size model in Volvo’s SUV lineup. This puts it between the XC40 and XC90.
Competition for most Volvo models usually comes from their German rivals. In the case of the XC60, these consist of the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC. There are also other luxury compact crossovers available which it competes with.
Interestingly, the first-generation models share a number of mechanical components with the Land Rover Freelander. This is due to the fact that these two models shared the same Volvo P3 platform.
As with all modern Volvos, trim levels include the Momentum, R-Design, Inscription, and sporty Polestar. The Polestar represents a high-performance version with a more powerful engine and other mechanical upgrades.
Petrol engine options begin with the 2-liter inline-4s that are offered in both iterations and go up to the 3.2-liter inline-6 found in the first generation. Volvo later restricted all engine options to only 2-liter configurations from the second generation onwards.
Diesel engines follow suit but go up to the 2.5-liter inline-5 offered with the first models.
The XC60 was awarded the 2018 World Car of the Year, among a number of other awards throughout its lifespan.
