I've own my 2017 xc60 about 3months, I really enjoy the safety and comfort. The ride is firm but not obtrusive, I enjoy the bluetooth for my music. i'm still getting use to the size of the vehicle as I came out of a Volvo s40. a long road trip is in the future. I just finished a 1000, mile trip gas mileage avg 24mpg and it runs on regular a plus. I love the great visibility and road handling. I now would recommend a Volvo XC60 to anyone looking for a great Suv this truck swallowed up all my luggage and great plus three additional adults in comfort.

Just completed first couple of long trips .... so now willing to document my thoughts on my new 2017 XC60 (last year of the generation). Pro's: a) seats are really comfortable (this is a renowned attribute, but I can confirm); b) fuel economy is decent (averaging 25mpg so far); c) plenty of good features (heated steering wheel, ability to start the car from my iPhone etc). d) build quality seems good - nice thunk when closing door etc. Con's: a) handling is just OK; b) heated front windshield has annoyingly visible heating wires; c) infotainment and instrument panel is definitely showing it's age ... one example, no ability to see phone messages; no ability to change speed display to km/h (would have been useful when driving to Montreal)

Al.Usr, 11/24/2016
Good mid size SUV, but $$$! Pros: all-wheel-drive, four-cylinder engines is powerful, regular gas a big plus, good MPG for this size, cabin is comfortable. Good road handling and modest cargo space. Cons : Noisy drive, hard suspension, small display screen for navigation and system control, outdated knob operated, is not touch screen and isn't user friendly. feels less luxurious than the same $$$ rivals.
I had such high hopes....
Nicole, 7/18/2017
1500 miles driven so far...encountered three issues (all were "reset" by turning the car on and off again.) First, the power lock on the driver side door decided not to function one day, but hasn't repeated yet. During a heavy rain, the auto folding mirrors would not fold back out after turning the car on and off several times. It later reset after being parked for an hour and I was told by the dealer to push the left and right mirror command buttons at the same time which should cause the mirrors to fold out if they are stuck. Best of all, I believe the parking break malfunctioned, triggering the check engine light to come on and the car to be undriveable. After I safely rolled into a parking lot and turned the care off and on it appears to be fixed for the time being. I'll be making my first trip to the service department before I make my second car payment! There are some good things: Acceleration is great for a 4 cylinder and size of the car; Tons of cargo space + panoramic sun roof made for some luxury car camping; Very comfortable (and great gas mileage at about 30 mpg) on a 8 hour road trip; Bluetooth integration is fairly seamless (wishing the car had apple play) and the navigation system has a very nice feature where the next turn displays in the instrument panel so you don't have to keep looking back at the screen. There are many things I really love about this car, but the reliability issues have me feeling pretty disappointed. I'm glad I leased.

More about the 2017 Volvo XC60

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.
