What Is the 2020 Volvo XC60?

The Volvo XC60 is a five-seat luxury SUV that’s offered with a choice of gas engines or a plug-in hybrid drivetrain. A 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, while a turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder that makes 316 hp is available. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The plug-in hybrid can travel up to 18 miles on electric power alone, according to the EPA, and makes 400 or 415 total hp, depending on trim level. Competitors include the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class

Leather upholstery and rear park assist are now standard. The new Polestar Engineered plug-in hybrid variant is rated at 415 total hp and includes adjustable shock absorbers, 21-inch wheels, Akebono brakes with gold calipers, black-chrome exhaust pipes, gold seat belts and a Bowers & Wilkins premium stereo.

Nice car/high maintenance

Enjoying driving my cxc60. I love this car. The disappointments thus far have been that I had to replace tires at 18k! Now I am replacing brakes at 32 k to the tune of $900 / never have I replaced brakes that soon & the brakes actually had been worn down to the metal and broken the rotors - no warning until recently I was hearing an unusual sound - I am probably going to trade this car once the brakes are fixed

5.0

Long time coming

Waited a long time to go from a 2010 to a 2020 XC60. There is no comparison to the fit, comfort, and digital experience. The stereo is outstanding. Like night and day. And I really like the older XC60!

5.0

Love my car

Love my car. Had it two years, it is solid, reliable and I feel very safe driving it. When I drive other cars, I can't wait to get back in it.
