Best Luxury SUV For the Money
By rudycassap on
Vehicle2013 Volvo XC60 T6 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)
ReviewI was hesitant to lease a Volvo XC60 AWD T6 since they are never mentioned in car magazines. All my friends leased Mercedes ML350s for their wives and some complained about the car driving like a Jeep Cherokee with a better interior (I guess it goes back to Daimler owning Chrysler). When I drove the car and got some feedback from the Culver City Volvo, my concerns were gone. The turbos are water-cooled and are just for the lower rpm, not like the high pressure turbos in Audi and VW that make the engine last less than 50k miles and no need to oil cool them by idling the car for 60 seconds before turning it off. The automatic braking feature for emergency is incredible for L.A. traffic. The
Best FeaturesBlind Spot Monitors (BLIS), comfort of the seats designed by an orthopedic surgeon, drives like a small car. It is a luxury car without being pretentious like in a ML, Cayenne, or X5.
Worst FeaturesThe radio and navigation could be simpler to operate, but I guess I could learn the voice control.
