2010 Volvo XC60: Hey, Good Lookin'
June 23, 2010
Cars like the C30 and the smoking-hot new S60 make it clear that Volvo is perfectly capable of sexing up the joint if it so chooses. Still, I'd never really seen the XC60 in the same, or even in a similar, light; it had always struck me as just a decent-looking mom-mobile with great ergonomics and lots of cool safety tech.
But there's at least one person out there who sees things differently. As I was taking these shots of the crossover outside one of my favorite health-food stores, a woman rushed up to me to compliment me on its looks, and to tell me that she was considering getting one. She didn't seem to fall within the typical Volvo demographic -- she was in her 20s, and bore no obvious signs of being a soccer mom. Anyway, after speaking with her, I took a second look at the XC60, and concluded that her enthusiasm had some merit -- it's not a bad-looking ride.
What do you think of this Volvo's sheet metal?
