2020 Volvo XC60: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

With the Volvo XC60 getting a complete redesign in 2018, we expect the 2020 Volvo XC60 to remain mostly unchanged. There is a new powertrain in the works, but it remains unconfirmed for 2020.

Visually, the Volvo XC60 received a comprehensive overhaul in 2018 that brought in a new, XC90-inspired look. This new look features the signature Thor’s Hammer headlights, smoother body lines, and revised taillights. Since this look is still fresh and making its way across Volvo’s lineup, we expect no visual changes.

Inside, the new-generation Volvo XC60 gains a simpler cabin dominated by a clutter-free dashboard that only has its horizontal lines interrupted by its large touchscreens. This clean look is complemented by a simple steering wheel and tons of upmarket materials and trim. We expect this toned-down yet luxurious cabin to carry into the 2020 XC60 unchanged.

Under its hood, we expect the lineup of engines to remain the same in the 2020 Volvo XC60. If this proves true, the base T5 powertrain will include a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine good for 250 horsepower. The T6 unit will be a 2.0-liter supercharged and turbocharged four-pot with 316 hp. Topping the range will be a T8 plug-in hybrid with a 2.0-liter supercharged and turbocharged four-cylinder that will punch out 400 combined horsepower.

The wildcard in the 2020 XC60’s powertrain will be the recently confirmed B5 mild-hybrid powertrain. Volvo confirmed it will be a part of the XC60 lineup but did not announce when it will arrive. It may arrive in time to be a part of the 2020 XC60 lineup, but that remains uncertain. Stay tuned for updates.

Safety is Volvo’s forte, and the current XC60 is no exception with its “Good” crash test scores and “Superior” front-crash prevention. Despite these great ratings, it missed out on being an IIHS Top Safety Pick because the IIHS has not tested its passenger-side small-overlap crash safety. We expect this to carry into the 2020 XC60 unchanged.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no release date for the 2020 Volvo XC60 yet. We are also uncertain on pricing, but with no changes coming, we expect its pricing to remain close to its current price range of $40,795 to $62,045 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Volvo XC60 will compete with the BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and Audi Q5.
