More so than ever, the luxury SUV market segment is crowded with various brands and models from around the world; all trying to innovate more than their rivals. With its latest iteration, the 2017 Volvo XC60 simplifies itself with only a handful of trim variants and stronger efficiency of the Drive-E powertrains, which have greatly impressed our team at Jaffarian Volvo. These two turbocharged engines are exclusively 4-cylinder offerings, replacing the 4-, 5-, and 6-cylinder engines of the XC60's past. The base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder peaks at 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, along with an impressive EPA-estimated 30 highway mpg in front-wheel drive. Meanwhile the turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder option is good for a 302 horsepower performance, with 295 pound-feet of torque and a slight dip in fuel economy to 27 highway mpg.
Beyond the Drive-E powertrain technology, the XC60 is outfitted with countless features to feel much more connected than its competitors. Volvo's City Safety system, for example, is capable of automatically applying the brakes to prevent forward collisions at speeds up to 31 mph. It not only manages to sense the distance between the vehicle itself and others on the road, but it also recognizes the difference between pedestrians and bicyclists in the local Haverhill area.
Within the delightfully leather-wrapped comforts of the XC60's cabin, it's impossible to miss the sleek aluminum and wood accents which add a greater sense of refinement to the interior. The 7-inch display of the Sensus infotainment system is ideally placed for stress-free transmission of navigation instructions and other information to the driver. Regardless of where you call home in the local area, from Andover to Methuen and Newburyport, the stylish 20-inch wheels and available all-wheel drive will perform stunningly on the rougher roads, especially in more unpredictable conditions.
