I traded in a 2010 Honda CRV EX-L for the 2013 Volvo XC60 T6 Platinum.
The XC60 is
far more quiet, smooth and powerful.
The quietness and seat comfort contributed to a very comfortable 10-hour road trip.
There is plenty of power for passing and merging.
The blind spot warning system works well.
The navigation system responds well to voice commands, and the bluetooth integration with both Android and iPhones is excellent.
The navigation system, radio and media controls on the steering wheel are easy to use after a short learning period.
One unexpected finding was the seat comfort.
This is hard to appreciate on a short test drive, but apparent on long trips.
Seat comfort is excellent.
Solid buetooth integration with smart phones.
Great exterior and interior styling.
Excellent engine power (3.0 T6).
Very smooth and quiet ride.
Navigation system works well and responds quickly (particularly the map zoom-in and zoom-out feature).
The leg room in the rear seats is adequate but could be better.
Some of the features in the "Technology" package, such as adaptive cruise control and lane warning system, should be available as an after-purchase add-on.
There are very few cars in inventory already equipped with the Technology option package.
