Volvo XC60 First UK Test Drive

Postby Admin » Sat Aug 26, 2017 10:33 am

The new XC60 is probably Volvo's most important model and makes up a huge proportion of UK sales. AOL Cars tried the latest model to see if it is good enough to compete with fierce rivalry in the market.

What is it?

The XC60 is Volvo's mid-size SUV, competing in the popular posh-crossover segment. The new model replaces the first-generation car which sold close to one million units around the world since its launch in 2008. Needless to say, the new model has a tough act to follow.

What's under the bonnet?

Our test car had the impressive D4 diesel engine, which is actually the entry-level engine in the range, although it doesn't feel that way. The D4 has a 2.0-litre four-cylinder power plant which produces 187bhp and a significant 400Nm of torque. The impressive torque figure means the XC60 can achieve 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds.

As for fuel economy, the D4 engine can manage an average of 54.3mpg, with CO2 emissions of 136g/km.

What's it like to drive?

The XC60 is a very competent car on the road, and does exactly what most people require from an SUV. It is comfortable, quiet and largely refined, although the engine can sound a bit gruff at times.
