We just returned from picking up our XC60 at the factory. What a wonderful experience. We were treated royally and toured the factory. We then took the Volvo and drove in Scandinavia. We drove super-highways, cities, narrow mountain roads, rough roads and smooth ones. The XC60 performed superbly! The safety systems are wonderful. The handling on winding roads is stable and comfortable. The car is quiet and responsive. We drove in snow flurries without any problem. Of course, at nearly $10 per gallon for gasoline a bit more economy would be nice. We anxiously await the stateside delivery.
Adaptive Cruise Control is wonderful, the system slows, brakes or accelerates as necessary to maintain a constant 2 - 3 second interval between your car and the one ahead. Memory seats are great. Keyless ignition works well.
I-phone interface could be more seamless. Our I-phone dumped the entire I-Tunes file the second time we used it.
