2017 Volvo XC60 first drive

2017 Volvo XC60 first driveAfter all, this is the most important model in Volvo’s range. Not only is the XC60 the brand’s most popular car around the globe, it is also the best-selling luxury SUV in Europe.

The XC60 will transport friends and family around in remarkable comfort. It might even stop you running into another car – or possibly a goat – thanks to its advanced sensors and ultimately it’s honest about its intentions.

My favourite thing about the car? Probably the primo interior, followed by the fact the Swedish luxo-barge doesn’t pretend to be something it’s not. The new XC60 isn’t trying to be a sports car or an off-road warrior like some of its rivals.

There’s good storage all around, with bottle holders in the rear doors, a set of cup-holders in the centre armrest, and up front there are larger door caddies and a couple of cup holders between the seats, not to mention a good-sized centre bin and glovebox.

The XC60’s boot capacity isn’t as good as some of the competitor vehicles in the class, with 505 litres of boot space, about 10 per cent less than its European rivals. In cars with the air suspension, the load area can be raised or lowered to make it easier to put stuff in the back, and there are remote flippers if you need to drop the 60:40 split-fold back seats.

What will and won’t be standard, and prices Volvo Australia will charge, will be the determining factor in this car’s success when it arrives locally from October this year.
