Volvo's XC60 makes a bold statement wherever it goes - from narrow mountain trails to wide-open highways to crowded city streets. No other vehicle in the Small Premium Utility class can rival the XC60's combination of dramatic design language, Scandinavian-styled cabin and world-first safety innovations.
The XC60 was the first vehicle equipped with City Safety. This advanced technology is a driver support system aimed at preventing or mitigating collisions occurring at speeds of 19 mph or less. It utilizes a closing velocity sensor to help determine whether a collision is likely. Depending on the closing speed, City Safety will either pre-charge the brakes or automatically brake the XC60 to help avoid a rear-end collision or lessen its impact.
The midrange XC60 T6 AWD offers an impressive blend of outstanding performance and value. Output for its 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder engine is 300 horsepower and 325 lb.-ft. of torque. All-Wheel-Drive with Instant Traction is standard on all turbocharged XC60s.
At the top of the XC60 lineup is the T6 AWD R-Design. This model targets enthusiasts with a substantial performance upgrade. Its 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder delivers 325 horsepower and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. The R-Design's chassis employs stronger damping and a more direct steering gear that allows the driver to benefit from more alert vehicle behavior and more precise communication with the road surface.
Every XC60 features a standard 6-speed "Geartronic" automatic transmission. A new gearshift knob includes illuminated drive modes for greater convenience. Also new is a Sport Mode, enhancing the sporty driving character for the T6 AWD and R-Design.
Rain sensor windshield wipers and headlight washers are standard on all XC60s for 2013. New Tunnel Detection automatically turns on the headlights when the vehicle enters a tunnel and then returns the lights to the previous setting when exiting the tunnel. The XC60 3.2 also receives standard 18-inch "Merac" alloy wheels and leather-wrapped steering wheel with aluminum inlays. Keyless Drive with Personal Car Communicator (PCC) becomes standard on T6 AWD and R-Design.
The XC60's Volvo Sensus system has been enhanced for 2013. Standard on all models, Sensus lets drivers manage information from the audio unit, navigation system (if equipped) and other functions, displaying them onto a seven-inch high-definition color monitor. Steering-wheel-mounted scroll functionality is increased for more intuitive and consistent flow of information including Radio Media, "TEL," "SAT" and "NAV" functions.
Volvo's trim level strategy offers customers the flexibility to add additional features. Buyers can still select the XC60 3.2, T6 AWD and R-Design without a trim level if desired.
Thanks to the use of full synthetic motor oil, service intervals have been extended for 2013. The recommended interval is now 10,000 miles or 12 months (whichever comes first), increased from the previous 7,500 miles.
Flamenco Red is a new exterior color choice for XC60 3.2 and T6 AWD, while Rebel Blue is now offered for the R-Design.
