Car of the month - Volvo XC60

|THE DEN|


The Volvo XC60 is undoubtedly the most popular vehicle in the company's lineup. It accounts for a large portion of the manufacturer's sales globally, but in India, it is the one to get if you want to stand out. The XC60 saw a lot of success after it was reintroduced in 2017, but as the competition has improved, it has had to make some significant modifications as well.



The XC60's clean lines and tasteful flourishes help it stand out in traffic, while the cabin provides an elegant respite from the stresses of modern life. So the XC60 is another Volvo that is surprisingly remarkable and well worth your money if you appreciate design, safety, comfort, and value.


The new XC60 is a petrol-only vehicle with mild hybrid technology for increased economy. A 2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine is mated to a 48-volt integrated starter-generator motor under the hood. By recovering energy from the brakes and storing it in the 48 volt battery, this motor now supports the engine and increases fuel efficiency at city speeds. You'll receive a combined output of 250bhp and 350Nm of torque.

It's all very refreshing inside the XC60, and we're talking about the design and materials here. Unlike the Germans, who use a lot of beige and light-colored surfaces, Volvo has gone for an all- black dash with tan leather seats and door pads to set the tone. The XC60's cabin design, like its appearance, has survived the test of time admirably. Volvo hasn't altered anything in here, yet because to the clean, simple aesthetics, it still seems like a 2022 design.



What's shocking is how little the main vertical display suddenly seems in comparison to the massive touchscreens that have taken over luxury automobile interiors. This 7-inch display may appear little, but it is exceedingly fluid, and the touch response is as flawless. All-in-all if you’re not looking for anything too extra then XC60 is the car that will keep you satisfied.
