The Swedish perspective of the Volvo is pretty evident in most of the vehicles handcrafted by the team Volvo and that makes the inclusion of its top-selling XC series and the thoughtfully curated XC60.
Furnished with tasteful and artful embellishment on the outer layers and with the cabin so sweet and shining like a pearl in the glimmering oasis.
There are different levels of powertrains offered and that includes one plug-in hybrid powertrain that is more than an elephant in the performance-driven challenges.
The cargo spacing is pretty enlarged and commodious the like the one we find in the Mercedes Benz GLC, BMW i8, and Audi Q4 E Tron.
Technological integrations of the vehicle pose a somewhat more futuristic appeal with the 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 12.3-inch gauge cluster.
There are majorly three engines offered and they are T5, T6, and T8 and they all are mated to a powerful eight-speed automatic transmission.
The levitation to the models like T6 and T8 brings about a more potent all-wheel-drive option but the front-wheel-drive is kept as standard.
Beneath the premium hoody of the Volvo XC60 lies a lion that spits a somewhat 250 horsepower and is on an engine diet of 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder engine.
The T5 and T6 models are charged by the same level of engine displacements with a supercharger exuding more oomph and laced with a 2.0 liter, 4 cylinder engine, 316 horsepower.
The T8 engine powertrain borrows the power from the T6 engine and is paired with a set of electric motors that, through a blend, exude a somewhat of 400 horsepower.
The driveability of the T5 model brings about somewhat 22 and 25 MPGs on the city and on the highway respectively and sticking an all-wheel-drive to these engines drop about 1 MPG in total. Though Volvo has plans to electrify completely by 2025, it aims to go green.
The other T6 variant brings about a total of 20 and 27 MPGs on the city and on the highway and upon projecting the T5 and T6 engines the said performers took a leap of 29 and 28 EPA estimates and that is near to that of the Lexus that sprints about the same on the roads of stamina.
The commitments clasped by the team Volvo along with the driver-assisted technologies it offers have made the vehicle more standard across the entire Volvo range.
