Volvo XC60 - model year 2017


The consistently popular XC60 is Volvo’s 5-seat, mid-size premium SUV and has been Volvo’s best-selling model since 2009.


Launched in 2008, the XC60 has allowed Volvo to compete head-on with and beat its German competitors in the segment, one of the most competitive in the market. In 2015, it was the most sold mid-size SUV in Europe.



As with all Volvos the powertrain offer is based on the Drive-E 2.0 litre turbo- and super-charged engines designed and built in Sweden at Volvo’s engine factory in Skövde.


The Drive-E range of low emission, high performance petrol and diesel engines offers a perfect blend of driver enjoyment and fuel economy, whilst retaining a responsive feel for city driving.


More details around the powertrain offer can be found in the Technical Specifications.



The XC60 offers a full range of connectivity options that include Volvo On Call, a phone-based app that allows you to control certain features in your car, such as pre-heating, locking and unlocking, navigation and vehicle location services. Volvo On Call now works with wearables such as Apple Watch and Android Wear and also has Windows 10 compatibility, meaning that Volvo On Call can now be operated from your PC as well as your smartphone.


Sensus delivers a range of native apps offering streaming music via TuneIn and Baidu and geo-location services such as Yelp and Wikilocations. Read more about Sensus in our factsheet.


The Harman Kardon Premium Sound system is tuned to perfection in Volvo’s advanced audio lab, enabling high quality music streaming.



As with any Volvo, safety comes as standard. The XC60 comes with one of the most comprehensive standard safety offers available in the segment, including City Safety, which offers a range of collision avoidance and mitigation functionalities including pedestrian and cyclist detection. A range of optional safety and convenience systems are also available in the 60 Series cars.
