2017 Volvo XC60 for Sale
The 2017 Volvo XC60 seems a little dated, especially inside, but there's a lot to recommend Volvo's small luxury crossover SUV. It starts with what's under the hood. Buyers have a choice of either the base engine, which is a 240-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder found in the T5 model, or a 302-horsepower version of that engine that is turbocharged and supercharged and used in the upscale T6 model.
The T5 comes in front- or all-wheel drive, while the T6 is all-wheel-drive only. All XC60s get an eight-speed automatic transmission. EPA-rated combined fuel mileage for the base engine is 26 mpg for the front-wheel-drive model and 22 mpg for the AWD T6 engine. Properly specced, the XC60 can even tow up to 3,500 pounds.
Standard features for the T5 Dynamic trim include 18-inch wheels, low-speed forward collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control and power front seats. You also get a 7-inch infotainment display and an eight-speaker stereo. The T6 Dynamic trim gets you some extra features, such as 19-inch wheels, a power liftgate, keyless entry and ignition, and digital gauges. Then there's the Inscription trim, which adds a few extras, plus the sporty R-Design, which as unique exterior and interior styling treatments, and adaptive cruise control, among other upgrades.
Up front, the seats are comfortable, but the rear seats are a little cramped for adults. Storage behind the rear seats is just adequate, but fold the rear seats down, and there’s 67.4 cubic feet of space. The XC60 is a great choice for parents with young children, offering integrated booster seats and all-around top safety scores. Add to that the fact that, front or rear, it's hard to find better seats than the ones Volvo builds, and this SUV will keep the whole family comfortable even on long road trips.
On the road, the XC60 has a stiffer ride than some of its competitors, but that translates into crisp handling, at least for this class of vehicle. Steering is precise, and the brakes are good.
The 2017 Volvo XC60 may be showing its age, but it's still an SUV that's racked up a number of awards for good reason. It remains a comfortable, capable, family-friendly option, though it could be overshadowed by fresher-faced competition. If this sounds like the kind of small luxury crossover you've been looking for, let Edmunds help you find the perfect one.
