We like the more simplified powertrain that Volvo has introduced for the 2024 XC60. As far as feature content, the mid-level Plus trim with either the gas-powered engine or the plug-in hybrid powertrain is a good choice. The Plus trim brings extra convenience and safety features for a reasonable increase in pricing and stands out as a comfortable, luxurious, and high-tech compact SUV.
