Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Volvo's XC60 is a new small crossover SUV that competes with other premium entries, like the Lexus RX, Cadillac SRX and Mercedes GLK. Powered by a normally aspirated or turbocharged six-cylinder engine, the XC60 is available with a wealth of safety features like lane departure warning and collision warning.
New for 2011 For 2011, both engines see an increase in power, and the XC60 gains a new R-Design version of the 3.2. The XC60 T6 gains a few more standard features as well.
Exterior The XC60 is instantly recognizable as a Volvo SUV thanks to its large front grille, which is similar to the one used by its larger sibling, the XC90. Despite this similarity, the XC60 is sleeker overall and has unique design cues, like angular, supplementary lights just inside its large headlights. Ground clearance measures a sizable 9.1 inches. Exterior features include:
Optional 18- or 20-inch wheels
Optional xenon headlights
R-Design trim (3.2L and T6) includes silver roof rails, tinted rear windows, aluminum accents, unique grille, unique tailpipes and scuff plates
Optional rearview camera, power tailgate
Optional panoramic moonroof
Interior Whereas the XC90 can seat up to seven people with its optional third-row seat, the XC60 is designed to carry a maximum of five people in two rows. The seats can have some rather startling two-tone color combinations, including black and yellow leather. The XC60 also has a slim dashboard control panel that gives the cabin some aesthetic appeal. The second-row bench seat folds flat to expand the cargo area. Interior features include:
Power driver seat
Dual-zone automatic climate control
CD stereo with USB/iPod compatibility
Optional Dolby Pro-Logic II surround-sound stereo
Optional heated seats, leather upholstery
R-Design models include unique instruments, steering wheel and sport seats
Under the Hood The XC60 is powered by a 3.2-liter inline-six-cylinder engine, with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder in the T6. Power is up 5 horsepower in the 3.2-liter six-cylinder and 19 hp in the 3.0-liter turbo. Mechanical features include:
3.2-liter inline-six makes 240 hp and 236 pounds-feet of torque (XC60 3.2); low-emissions version sold in some states makes 230 hp and 221 pounds-feet
Turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder makes 300 hp and 325 pounds-feet of torque (XC60 T6)
Six-speed automatic transmission (both engines)
3.2 offers front- or all-wheel drive
T6 offers all-wheel drive only
Safety Volvo's standard City Safety system scans the road ahead and looks for looming obstacles; it can automatically brake the car at low speeds, should the driver fail to do so. Other safety features include:
Antilock disc brakes
Electronic stability system
Front-seat side-impact airbags, two-row side curtain airbags
Optional integrated second-row booster seats
Optional lane departure warning system
Optional higher-speed collision warning system with automatic braking
