2010 Volvo XC60: A Good Vehicle for Goodwill Runs
February 01, 2010
I was glad I had the XC60 this weekend. Though I wouldn't require something with so much cargo capacity, it was appreciated. A trip to Goodwill was a breeze as I just tossed (well, not literally) everything through the wide opening, as opposed to having to wrestle it into a trunk or into a smaller hatchback. As we noted in our crossover comparison test where the XC60 was crowned the winner, it boasts a generous cargo capacity -- 67 cubic feet with the seats down. Flipping one of the split seats down was easy -- no need to remove the headrests, just pull the release and it flops down -- and helped make short work of transporting four large bags of clothes (a few were offloaded before the photo was taken) as well as an old commercial grade Hoover canister vac that's the diesel engine of appliances -- I swear that thing will run forever.
