The all new Volvo XC60
Volvo’s new XC60 SUV is on sale now, priced from £37,205, ahead of first deliveries this autumn
As such, the five-seat, mid-sized XC60 is a rival for the Audi Q5 and BMW X3. We got our first look at it at the Geneva Motor Show in March, but now Volvo has revealed UK prices and specs and has opened the order books. The most basic D4 Momentum XC60 is priced at £37,205.
The new XC60 is part of a big product offensive in the SUV market sector by Volvo, and it follows in the footsteps of 2015’s XC90 release. Later this year the new XC60 will be joined by the XC40 – a smaller Volvo crossover and rival for the Audi Q3.
During the XC60’s reveal at the Geneva Motor Show, Volvo’s vice-president of design, Thomas Ingenlath, told us, “I am relaxed coming out with the XC60, because it isn’t such a revolution [as the XC90 was]. But it is a big step and improvement with the new platform. I’m tempted to ask: ‘What could go wrong?’”
There’s a definite family resemblance to the XC90, however, especially inside. The dashboard, seats and upholstery will all be familiar to XC90 owners; the same 9.0-inch touchscreen and 12.3-inch digital dial displays feature, while sat nav will be bundled as standard.
The new model is 62mm longer, 12mm wider and 14mm lower than the outgoing XC60, and the 91mm-longer wheelbase means there’s more legroom in the rear.
At launch, all models will be four-wheel drive and use an eight-speed automatic gearbox – but as with the XC90, only four-cylinder engines will be available. The range starts with the £37,205 187bhp D4 diesel, which Volvo says returns up to 55.4mpg and 133g/km CO2. A £43,205 232bhp D5 PowerPulse diesel sits above it, capable of 51.4mpg and 144g/km CO2. The diesels will make up the bulk of sales, but a T5 petrol with 251bhp will go on sale for those after a little more performance, priced from £37,900. In terms of economy, this engine gets 39.2mpg while returning a CO2 score of 164g/km.
Finally, a T8 plug-in hybrid with 401bhp and an all-electric range of around 35 miles will arrive as a flagship version.
