Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Vehicle Overview

Volvo's XC60 is a compact luxury SUV that slots below the larger XC90 in Volvo's lineup. The XC60 has a base six-cylinder engine paired with front-or all-wheel drive, and an available turbocharged six-cylinder engine that comes with all-wheel drive. The XC60 competes with the Cadillac SRX, Audi Q5 and Mercedes GLK-Class.

New for 2014
Volvo updates the XC60's front styling for 2014 while the inside has a new dashboard and upholstery options plus available sports seats. Other changes to the exterior include new wheel designs and LED accents on the taillights.

ExteriorThe XC60 is the smaller SUV in Volvo's lineup compared to the XC90. Volvo says the restyled 2014 XC60's front styling has an "urban" twist with a hood that's more stylized than before. The front end's black trim pieces are gone and leave a smooth, body-colored look that's sleeker than 2013, though not significantly changed.  Exterior features include:

  • Integrated tailpipes
  • New wheel designs
  • Standard 18-inch wheels
  • Available 20-inch wheels
  • Available heated windshield

InteriorThe XC60 fits five occupants versus seven for the larger three-row XC90.  Its classy look inside is emphasized more for 2014 with new wood inlays and a new ceiling headliner. The XC60 gains an available configurable digital gauge cluster on T6 models for 2014 that replaces a standard tachometer and speedometer; it's optional on 3.2 models. Available display choices include a ...

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
