Volvo reveals new XC60 SUV at Geneva Motor Show
Five-seat SUV takes aim at Jaguar F-Pace and Range Rover Velar
Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show, the XC60 boasts a sculpted look that’s familiar from the larger XC90, and an interior that includes a four-zone climate control system called CleanZone, which removes pollutants from outside the cabin. The Volvo infotainment system, Sensus, has been updated with what Volvo says will be improved usability, and will feature Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for smartphone connectivity.
Engine choice will start with the diesel D4, with 187bhp, and a D5 with 232bhp. Petrol options include the 250bhp T5 and the T6, which uses both a turbo and supercharger to deliver 316bhp. At the top of the range is the T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid, which uses a petrol engine and electric motor working together to deliver 401bhp.
The XC60 goes into production from mid-April in Sweden. It goes on sale later this month with deliveries expected to start in July. Prices have yet to be confirmed, but are expected to start at around £36,500.
