XC60 adds safety and sex appeal

XC60 adds safety and sex appealThink of the XC60 as a shrunken five-seat version of the XC90 if you like, and you’d not be far off the mark. It features similar drivetrains, much the same interior architecture and even similar styling to its popular sib, only it’s a more connected drive being a bit more compact, a bit lighter.

The design is sharper than the sexy XC90 and the cabin more spacious than the outgoing model, moving away from the “Ikea and Nokia” look of a decade ago to a harmoniously curved “wave” design for the dashboard, offset by a 9-inch vertical touch screen.

A blind spot system also uses steer assist to prevent lane-changing collisions and then there’s Volvo’s Pilot Assist. This is one of those semi-autonomous driver assistance systems that steers, accelerates and brakes on very well-marked, relatively straight roads. You can relax your hands off the wheel for around 10 seconds before bells and whistles remind you the driver is still always in charge.

In terms of infotainment, Volvo is running with a portrait mode iPad style screen, kind of half the size Tesla offers. It’s a decent system, being easy to reach and navigate.  Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also available.
