Reviewers say the 2014 Volvo XC60 offers a roomy cabin and high tech safety features.
Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with U.S. News Best Cars. Is the Volvo XC60 right for your family, let's take a closer look.
The XC60 was introduced for 2010 and sees few changes for the 2014 model year. A six cylinder engine and a six speed automatic transmission are standard. More powerful turbo-charged six cylinder engines are available on upper trims. The base XC60 gets an EPA estimated 18 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway which is on par for the luxury compact SUV class.
Three trim levels are available with prices starting at about $34,800. Reviewers say the Base XC60 has sufficient power but they recommend upgrading to the turbo-charged models for their risk acceleration.
Most report that the XC60 has a ride thats firm but comfortable as well as sharp steering and a tight turning radius which makes it easy to maneuver in tight spaces. Auto writers say the Volvo XC60s cabin is contemporary and well appointed with quality materials. Reviewers note that the seats are exceptionally comfortable and the back seat provides plenty of room. Standard features include an infotainment system with a 7-inch display screen and satellite radio.
Available features include navigation, a dual screen rear seat entertainment system and a rear view camera.
