2011 Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


This is our first "crossover". After years of sport sedan driving we wanted more space for things and a higher driving position for traffic. The engine is super smooth, it is quieter inside and smoother riding (even with R design) than previous Infiniti and BMW vehicles we've had. The interior looks great in two-tone leather, ergonomics are fine, and at the present it is rated the most reliable of the European brands. The 5 year warranty and free maintenance, including wear items(execept tires) is a plus. Safety is unequaled. I am not thrilled with the lack of steering feel, but the vehicle will take fast corners and sticks to the roadexcellently. Plenty of room for us.

Best Features

Smooth turbo power, car-like handling and grip, interior styling, 5 year full warranty and service, safety, utility, well equipped, perfect reliability so far, excellent dealer service and low key approach. Definitely a step up from non-R design in terms of styling and handling. The finishing touches in the package transform it for a modest upgrade in price.

Worst Features

Better steering feel, improve low speed transmission programming/pedal interaction, it either moves out slowly or if you press the pedal more, it gooses it and really moves, availability of R-design w/o so many options stuck on it and in more colors. We had to pick white because a red would have $5,000 extra of options even bringing them in from out-of-state.
