Overview

If you’re looking for a small, two-row premium SUV, the Volvo XC60 is one to consider. Introduced in 2010, the current generation model is now in its eighth and final year. Offering room for five and very good storage space, you have your choice of engines and drivetrains to consider.

What's New for 2017

Volvo could have left well enough alone as it prepares its next-generation XC60. Instead, the automaker narrowed its engine offerings, dropping the previously available five- and six-cylinder engines. Also gone is the six-speed automatic, replaced by an eight-speed transmission. A pair of forced-induction four-cylinder engines remain.

Choosing Your Volvo XC60

With its larger engines gone, Volvo now relies upon a pair of four-cylinder engines to power the XC60.

All T5 models are powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This model is rated at 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway for front-wheel drive and 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway for the all-wheel drive version.

Five trim levels are available: T5 Dynamic, T5 Inscription, T6 Dynamic, T6 Inscription, and T6 R-Design. The Inscription trims feature four unique color choices, special-effect 20-inch wheels, and seats covered in fine semi-aniline leather.

Standard equipment includes electronic climate control, power front seats with lumbar support, navigation, a blind spot information system, and a rearview camera. All models come with a CD player, HD radio, satellite radio, Bluetooth streaming, USB ports, and an auxiliary audio input port. A moonroof is standard.

T5 Dynamic

Volvo prices the 2017 XC60 T5 FWD Dynamic from $41,945 (destination included). Add $2,000 for all-wheel drive.

In addition to the standard features, customers can choose from four packages to personalize their vehicle. The Climate package ($1,550) brings a heated windshield with heated wiper nozzles, a heated steering wheel, and heated seats. You can also swap out the rear heated seats for a pair of dual-stage child booster seats for the same price.

An Advanced package ($2,500) brings in numerous safety features, including adaptive cruise control, collision warning, lane departure warning, and active high beams. You also get a Harmon Kardon audio system. For $1,550 you can choose a Preferred Option package comprised of several features including a power-operated tailgate, power retractable side mirrors, front park assist, and keyless drive.

Volvo XC60

T6 R-Design

Volvo prices the 2017 XC60 T6 R-Design from $51,995 (destination included). The R-Design is the sport appearance model featuring special trim, including 20-inch Ixion alloy wheels and enhancements to the grille, side mirrors, window trim, roof sills, front spoiler, and to the tailpipes. Inside, the R-Design treatment extends to the steering wheel, gearshift knob, instrument panel, and to the metal sill plates.

CarsDirect Tip

It can be tempting to wait one more year to find out what Volvo has in store for the 2018 XC60. For those who don’t want to wait, a T5 model with the Advanced and Preferred packages provides a well-equipped model costing less than some of its top European competitors.

Volvo's long-running compact crossover, the XC60 offers impressive quality and premium features at a sensible price.

Pricing and Equipment

The standard XC60, dubbed T5, comes in Dynamic and Inscription trims, both priced at $41,945 with destination and with a standard 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 240 horsepower. The Dynamic has a sportier look inside, while the Inscription goes for a plush feel. All-wheel drive is available for $2,000. Standard features include:

  • Leather seats with driver memory
  • A panoramic sunroof
  • Collision mitigation with automatic braking
  • An eight-speaker infotainment system with navigation

T6 versions of the XC60, priced from $47,345, use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 302 hp, thanks to a turbocharger and a supercharger – a remarkably rare arrangement – and standard all-wheel drive. Exclusive to the T6 is the sporty R-Design trim ($51,995), which adds a sport-tuned suspension, shift paddles, and more convenience and safety features. Most of the R-Line's non-performance upgrades are optional on the lower trims.

Performance Pros

Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 offers two powerful four-cylinder engines:

  • The T6's twincharged engine delivers properly quick performance. Whether at a standstill, city speeds, or on the highway, the XC60 T6 delivers all the grunt its driver needs.
  • The eight-speed automatic transmission punches out super-smooth upshifts with both engines.

Performance Cons

  • We detected some annoying chatter from the base engine at low speeds — and a loud batch of it during swift takeoffs.
  • We would've had more fun if the transmission wasn't so reluctant to downshift. The eight-speed automatic is tuned for efficiency, and not in a subtle way. We had to bury the pedal to sample the engine's true potential.

Interior Pros

  • The XC60's virtual instrument cluster is as visually enticing as it is useful. The high-resolution displays are legible at a glance and rendered in full color. It also feels remarkably premium at this price point.
  • With the rear seat folded, the XC60 can hold up to 67.4 cubic feet of cargo. That's more than any other compact luxury crossover we've tested.

Interior Cons

Volvo XC60
  • Many luxury vehicles have dazzled us with their exotic finishes and fancy tailoring. The XC60 isn't one of the them. The bling-free environment may be too austere for some buyers (although material quality is good).
  • While Volvo claims the XC60 seats five, it's really a four-seater. Even with the front seats moved generously forward, we could fit no more than two adults in back.

The Most Pleasant Surprise

The Volvo XC60's front seats kept us perfectly comfortable through hundreds of miles of driving. For long-distance travel, they're simply some of the best seats we've experienced in any vehicle.

The Least Pleasant Surprise

The Volvo XC60 falls short of most rivals when it comes to ride quality. The suspension is firm by design, but we still expected a smoother, more refined ride from a crossover in this league.

The Bottom Line

The Volvo XC60 doesn't fit the textbook definition of a luxury crossover, which probably explains its enduring popularity.
