The redesigned 2018 Volvo XC60 includes new luxurious design features, both inside and out, an available plug-in hybrid and new engines. One size smaller than Volvo’s full-sized CX90 SUV, the 2018 CX60 redesigns its interior to compete with luxury vehicles. Leather seats, along with the panoramic sunroof, Apple CarPlay and automated emergency braking are all standard.
The minimalized center screen reads and navigates similar to a smartphone, swiping from three different displays, left to right. With an empty back seat, the driver has the capability to flip the second-row headrests forward, to gain rearview visibly. Ready to load the vehicle up to the brim? At the push of a button, you can flip the rear seats forward in a snap or by accessing automated switches located in the trunk.
Customized to Your Lifestyle
Volvo has provided three base options (Momentum, R-Design and Inscription) to ensure that you receive as many features, or as little desired. The XC60 R-Design upholds a sportier edge in its style, handling and responsiveness. This model is equipped with five drive modes, (Comfort, Dynamic, Eco, Off-Road and Individual). This line also includes paddle, a feature I personally favor. The pinnacle of luxury within the line is the XC60 Inscription. Adorned with genuine wood decor inlays and options to upgrade to the fully power-operated front seats that include ventilation and even a massage option.
Safety is still of utmost importance to Volvo; the XC60 is no different.
While in reverse, the XC60 gently reminds you with notable, but gentle tones that another vehicle or pedestrian is near to crossing paths with you, without inciting panic.
City safety and run-off road mitigation are two incredibly useful safety features. On winding highways, such as HWY 119 via Boulder Canyon Road where climbers, backpackers and wildlife are always present, features that warn you of these hazards and help you to avoid them by braking or steering clear of the threatening path. Between city and mountain driving, the redesigned XC60 has the capabilities to command them both.
