At the Geneva Motor Show, Volvo announced its next generation XC60 premium mid-sized SUV - a really highly anticipated Volvo model, given fans had to wait whole nine years to finally meet it.
During this time, the Swedes sold nearly a million units of XC60 globally, with this particular model today representing around 30 per cent of Volvo's total global sales. As figures show, this is a very important model from Volvo's fleet, so the new Volvo XC60 has some really big shoes to fill.
Volvo fully loaded it with new technologies, including assist, safety and infotainemnt technologies, but there is also Pilot Assist, Volvo's advanced semi-autonomous driver-assistance system. On top of that, the car features a new CleanZone four-zone climate control system that removes harmful particles from outside the cabin – out with the stinky pollutants, in with the Scandinavian-fresh air!
The new Volvo XC60 will be available with a wide range of powertrains, including diesel D4 engine at 190 hp, the D5 with PowerPulse technology at 235 hp, the petrol-powered T5 delivering 254 hp and the T6 with 320 hp. Additionally, the T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid will have total power output of 407 hp and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds.
Volvo Cars' new XC60 is set to go into production in mid-April in Sweden.
