Best of all worlds

by SafeMan from Lansing, New York on May 27, 2012

After nearly losing my life in a vehicular accident, I decided to look closely at the Volvo XC60 T6 to help ensure safety. I selected the R-Design with Platinum trim and checked each box to not regret ordering something down the road. I test drove competitors from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Range Rover, Land Rover for comparison purposes and found each one to be nice vehicles, but only in the Volvo did I feel a perfect fit in every way whatsoever. The others all had very overwhelming technical features that made for trying test drives. I am not quick to learn new things, especially when it comes to tricky to use computers, navigation features and so on. The seats in the XC60 were designed by orthopedic specialists and the engineers at Volvo must be equally skilled to construct such an intuitive crossover, SUV, wagon, sports car (R-Design's 325 hp) -- everything all in one. No blind spots and too many pluses to include regarding styling, comfort, surprisingly high MPG (high 20s-30ish), ride, handling, all season AWD traction, superior entertainment system and climate control, ease of use all around (navigation, once you become aquainted) and of course the countless and much appreciated standard (and some understandably optional and packaged) safety features. New for soon to be released 2013 Volvo XC60 models is a vastly improved navigation system with road sign recognition! Volvo: You think of absolutely everything!

Really good

by Road less from Portland, OR on April 9, 2012

This vehicle has the most safetly features I could buy. Better power than the lexus, but not quite as comfy. Safety features make it great. The only improvement would be to the GPS system, it does not display all the street names in any screen. I would have gone with the Garmin GPS rather then the Volvo factory installed system (Navtec). One feature that was an unexpected delight was the keyless entry. Instead of fumbling with the key, it is really a time saver to just walk up and open the locked door. The same with the push button rear door. The dealership was customer sensitive and responsive. The you tube and internet sites were helpful and useful in researching prior to purchase.

Loved our Overseas Delivery

by Dave B from Poulsbo, WA on May 12, 2018

First of all, check out Volvo?s Overseas Delivery program. Discount price, special options, and...two FREE round trip tickets to go pick it up in Sweden. Our XC60 has been awesome, has 130,000 miles, still going strong, and we?re planning another Overseas Delivery later next year. That should say it all. Five stars!

The best enginered SUV for the money

by ROAD RUNNER from Allentown, Pa on November 9, 2011

Well designed. Very functional. Runs like a rabbit. 235 hp. Handles very well. No constant down shifting when going up a slight grade. In cruise control their is no change in rpm. I get 25mpg doing 60-65 mph with this inline 6 cylinder. 7500 miles so far. No breakin period needed to obtain great fuel milage. This thing has been perfect from day one right off the dealer lot. I traded a 2011 Equinox with a 4 cylinder that at best got 22 mpg highway. The Volvo is in a class of it's own. Hello Volvo. Good by GM.

Volvo XC60 rocks!

by LowellK from Houston, TX on November 20, 2011

Bought a 2012 Volvo XC60. this is one of the most comfortable SUV's on the market. Volvo has always done a great job with their seats especially since they have a orthopedic doctor's input on seat design. Volvo's City Safety is standard on the vehicle as well. Opt for the T6 AWD if you want a smoother and much more powerful vehicle over the 3.2 base model.

Love this Rocketship

by David from Virginia on February 26, 2014

This car is beautiful and fast! No other SUV can compare with this car for the price. The warranty is also one of the best in the business. Not only is it a great performer, but it is also one of the safest cars on the road with a number of technological advancements in passenger safety. If you have read about the City Safe feature, go visit the Volvo website. Love this car.
