2013 Volvo XC60 T6 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


I 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).

Best Features

Blind 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 Features

The radio and navigation could be simpler to operate, but I guess I could learn the voice control.
