2019 Volvo XC60 OVERVIEW

The second-generation 2019 Volvo XC60 follows in the footsteps of its larger, award-winning sibling, the XC90, and carries an exterior design that bears strong brand resemblance yet is easily distinguished by its more dramatic lines and athletic stance. Volvo’s dedication to safety, a vast powertrain lineup, and a high-quality interior add up to another solid win for the brand.

What's New for 2019

The 2019 Volvo XC60 follows a stellar 2018 debut year and newly offers front-wheel drive, and a lower price when equipped with the base engine. The option packages receive new names – although their content remains largely the same.

Choosing Your Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 follows the brand’s direction to utilize a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine design and supplement it with varying levels of forced air induction and an electrical hybrid system to deliver a wide range of power and efficiency.

The base T5 engine is fitted with a turbocharger and generates a peak 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It's the only powertrain that can be configured in front-wheel-drive form, where it achieves an EPA-estimated 22 miles per gallon city, 29 mpg highway, and 24 combined. Upgrading the T5 to all-wheel drive costs $2,300, but AWD is standard with the turbocharged and supercharged T6 engine, which generates 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The T6 is rated at 19/27/22 mpg (city/highway/combined).

The T8 powertrain is also all-wheel drive and features a plug-in hybrid system to achieve 400 hp and 472 lb-ft of torque. Even with this level of power, it's the efficiency leader among the lineup, earning an EPA estimated 58 MPGe. The 10.4-kwh battery is good for an estimated 20 miles of all-eletric range. An eight-speed automatic is standard on all trims and configurations.

The XC60 is available in three trim levels, Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription, and each can be had with any of the powertrains.


The least expensive XC60 is the Momentum trim with the T5 engine and front-wheel drive at $40,195 (including mandatory fees). It hardly seems like a base trim though as it is well equipped and has access to many luxurious features. Inside the notables include an eight-inch digital combimeter, a 9-inch vertically oriented touchscreen display, leather covered power seats with driver-side memory, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM, a panoramic moonroof, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter. LED headlights with active high beam, 18-inch wheels, lane keep assist, collision alert, a power tailgate, and aluminum roof rails further contribute to the entry trim level seeming like an impressive value.

The Premium Package is offered for $2,200 for those looking for more. It includes proximity entry, blind spot monitoring, auto dimming mirrors (interior and exterior), and power folding exterior mirrors that are becoming increasing necessary as cars outgrow their parking spaces.

With the Premium Package ordered first, the Advanced Package is available for an additional $2,500. This package features Volvo’s active driving systems, a surround-view camera system, active headlights, a head-up display, and headlight washers.

The Multimedia Package is available for $2,500 and includes a larger, 12.3-inch combimeter display, a premium audio package, and a cloud-based navigation system.

That navigation is available as a stand-alone option for $1,200 and is among the many other stand-along features. An air-suspension system that has earned many accolades is available for $1,800 and larger 19-inch and 20-inch wheels are offered from the factory for $800 and $1,000, respectively. Heated seats and steering wheel are offered for $750 and upgraded leather surfacing can be ordered for $1,600.


The starting price of the R-Design is significantly greater at $47,045 but includes all-wheel drive and many of the Momentums available equipment as standard. The sport suspension, perforated sport seats, and a unique steering wheel design with paddle shifters emphasize the dynamic focus of this trim. The Advanced Package, heated steering wheel and steering wheel, larger wheels, and navigation are among the familiar available features. The R-Design notably gains access to a 1100W 15-speaker, 12-channel amplifier Bowers and Wilkins premium audio for audiophiles that are willing to pay the $3,200 asking price.


The Inscription trim, $47,545 largely matches the standard features and available equipment list as the R-Design however, it trades that trim’s sporting nature for a calming interior atmosphere and chassis setup. In addition to a four-zone climate control, real wood, crystal gear shift knob, and a unique grille and wheels, the Inscription trim offers Perforated Nappa Leather seating surfaces with back massage for the front seats for $2,200 as well as a Sport Steering Wheel for $300.

CarsDirect Tip

The entry-level Momentum provides Volvo’s renowned attention for safety and a comprehensive list of standard features. The long list of tempting optional features and powertrains can escalate the price quickly. Add on the Premium Package and the Advance Package for the full safety suite and surround view camera system.
