About the Volvo XC60

Searching for a midsize luxury SUV? The Volvo XC60 defies expectations with its dynamic Scandinavian-influenced exterior styling to help you stand out in a sea of ordinary. Eye-catching design cues include signature Volvo Thor's Hammer LED headlamps, a steeply-raked windshield, and bold upright front grille. The XC60 offers seductive styling which complements the capable performance found beneath the hood.

Continuing the success of the prior generation of the XC60 models, the new generation features a sleeker profile along with enhanced driving dynamics. Engineering advancements have resulted in expanded rear seat dimensions in an effort to give rear passengers greater comfort. Standard all-wheel drive and a mild hybrid system give the XC60 exceptional efficiency and handling. And since this is a Volvo, the XC60 is incredibly safe, with standard safety features that lead the industry.

What the Critics Say

"Borrowing interior and exterior styling cues from the larger XC90 SUV gives the XC60 a head start in the desirability department, but it backs up its premium, contemporary image with a long list of standard and optional features that elevate it above many of its rivals." — Car and Driver

"Yes, the Volvo XC60 is a good SUV. It offers three capable powertrains, including a plug-in hybrid, and it gets good gas mileage while providing a comfortable ride. The interior is arguably the finest in the class, with ample cargo space, plenty of features, and plush, spacious seats." — U.S. News & World Report

What's New for 2024

The biggest change to the XC60 for 2024 has been a simplification of the powertrain options. The less-popular B6 engine option has been dropped from the lineup, and all-wheel drive has been made standard across the lineup. The remaining changes have been minor, including standard laminated windows and new optional 20-inch wheels for Ultimate models, as well as a world-first air quality system that prevents up to 95 percent of hazardous PM 2.5 particles from entering the cabin.
