, Automotive Editor -

Volvo’s five-passenger crossover is already known for its safety, style and energetic road manners. For 2015, the engineers have focused on drawing more performance and efficiency out of the front-drive models.

What's New for 2015

The engine roster includes a pair of four-cylinder turbos known as Drive-E.

Choosing Your Volvo XC60

The Drive-E engines power all front-drive models. The base 2-liter turbo generates 240 horsepower and returns 29 mpg in combined city and highway driving. A supercharged version of the Drive-E is good for 302 horsepower and 25 mpg combined. Both engines receive a new eight-speed automatic transmission.

On the all-wheel drive XC60, you have a choice of a 240-horsepower 3.2-liter six-cylinder or a 3-liter turbocharged six-cylinder with 300 or 325 horsepower depending on the trim level. All six-cylinder engines are matched to six-speed automatic.

The deep model lineup is broken out according to drivetrain:

T5 Drive-E

Comes with the 240-horsepower version of the Drive-E and front-wheel drive, plus standard features such as power front seats with driver memory, front and rear foglights, automatic headlamps and wipers, LED running lights, roof rails, fabric upholstery, Bluetooth phone and audio, and an eight-speaker sound system with CD, a USB interface, and satellite and HD radio.

CarsDirect Tip

The new Drive-E engines offer class-leading efficiency along with potent performance. We recommend the Drive-E moddels over the six-cylinder unless you can't live without al-wheel drive.
