ROCKLEIGH, NJ - The Volvo XC60 is a 2019 Edmunds Best Family Cars award winner, adding yet another reason for consumers to consider buying one.
The XC60 was named the 2019 Edmunds Best Family Luxury Small SUV. Standard features on the $39,800 XC60 T5 include a 250-horsepower turbocharged engine, LED headlights, leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof and all the safety of a Volvo.
The XC60 has been the Swedish brand’s most popular vehicle with more than one-million units sold worldwide since it was introduced in 2008. Completely redesigned in 2018, the all-new XC60 is expected to continue that success, especially after having won the prestigious World Car of the Year and North American Utility of the Year awards that year.
“The XC60 is perfect for families,” said Anders Gustafsson, president and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “It’s a perfect combination of size, design, technology and of course safety. You can even get it as a 400 horsepower plug-in hybrid so you can have fun of a fast car with minimal impact on the environment.”
“Backed by Volvo’s well-known reputation for safety, the XC60 packs an impressive suite of driver-assist and collision mitigation technologies and is our favorite luxury small SUV for families,” said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief at Edmunds. “Beyond safety, the stylish XC-60 also offers clever family-friendly options like an integrated rear booster seat and four-zone climate control all wrapped up in a luxurious and comfortable ride.”
The XC60 and all Volvo passenger cars are available at a network of nearly 300 retailers nationwide. Consumers can visit www.volvocars.com/us for more information.
