Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

On the whole, the XC60 doesn’t feel on par with class-competitive crossovers. Despite its tall profile, however, this Volvo handles quite well, sticking to the pavement even through tight curves and corners.

Few would call the XC60 sporty in nature, but it’s definitely stable. Steering is nicely-weighted, compared to prior Volvo models, yielding a helpful amount of road feel. Ground clearance of 9.1 inches, combined with Haldex all-wheel drive, should let the XC60 ease through deep snow, muddy paths, or rocky trails.

Ride quality is European-firm, thus less smooth than in many crossovers. That’s especially true with 20-inch wheels and low-profile tires, which can yield some jarring. On the other hand, an XC60 is quite forgiving when faced with rough surfaces. Overall, with smaller tires, the ride is reasonably comfortable. Noise suppression is on par with other members of the near-luxury crossover category.

At low speeds, the base engine sounds somewhat coarse, emitting a thrumming sound when stop/start operation is active. The 8-speed transmission lacks refinement and tends to feel disconnected, striving too hard to keep engine speed down in the interest of fuel economy. Some shuddering occurs during low-speed maneuvers.

Even the stronger turbo/supercharged engine feels constrained by the transmission, which does a lot of gear-searching. The T6 also has a heavy feel, though actual weight isn’t excessive. Front-drive models feel lighter and better balanced, particularly in Sport mode.

The base engine is EPA-rated at 23/30 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. Estimated mileage in an all-wheel-drive T6 dips to 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Despite a design that shows it age, both externally and internally, the XC60’s wedge-like profile remains attractive and distinctive. Visually, there’s no doubt that it’s still a Volvo.

In today’s competitive crossover SUV world, the XC60 scores around average in styling. Smooth body contours blend with several rather rakish angular elements, complemented by an upswept beltline. Overall, the XC60 exhibits a high level of fit-and-finish.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Like competitive crossovers, the XC60 has seating for five, though four adults will be more comfortable. For family travel and daily life, it’s a useful, roomy crossover, with sufficient cargo space for everyone’s luggage.

Both the driver and front passenger could hardly ask for more in seat comfort, since those in the XC60 are among the best to be found. Side bolsters for both the seatback and cushion help keep occupants firmly positioned.

Front and rear riders can expect bountiful headroom, but back-seat legroom is a bit tight, especially for passengers with longer legs. Three youngsters fit nicely in the back seat, but that number of grown-ups won’t be so pleased.

Cargo volume is surprisingly abundant: more than 30 cubic feet with rear seatbacks raised. Folding the seats down expands the space to 67 cubic feet. The only demerit is a load floor that isn’t fully flat.

Apart from the XC60’s impressive digital gauge clusters, the interior shows it age and comes across as somewhat boring. The black dashboard is on the plain side, with a layout that falls behind some modern rivals.

Still, the all-digital dashboard angles appropriately toward the driver, displaying its cluster of high-resolution virtual instruments, each one clear and bright. Optional two-tone leather upholstery helps boost the XC60’s premium appearance. The center console retains Volvo’s familiar floating stack, containing audio and climate controls.

Impressively equipped, the Volvo XC60 promises good value compared to German rivals, delivering the traditional virtues for which Volvos have long been known. Despite its age, this crossover manages to match or edge past a number of rivals. Options come in costly packages.
