2016 XC60 Overview

The Volvo XC60, now in its seventh year, is a mid-size crossover SUV built on the platform of the sweet S60 sedan.Available with front- or all-wheel-drive, the XC60 is safe and particularly sensible, as Volvos are known to be.The V60 wagon is similar but it's more like a large hatchback, not nearly as roomy in back as the family-friendly XC60.

The 2016 Volvo XC60 is available in 10 different models.For 2016, there are no real changes, just a shuffling of options.

The XC60's fuel-efficient, direct-injection 2.0-liter engines, called Drive-E, were new for 2015.There are two versions, the T5 with 240 horsepower and T6 with 302 horsepower, both paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission.The T5 is turbocharged, while the T6 adds a supercharger to the turbocharger.The idea behind having two aspiration methods on the same engine is that one (turbocharged) brings more power at higher speeds, while the other (supercharged) brings more a lower speeds.

The lightweight Drive-E engines with the solid Haldex all-wheel drive come with the old 6-speed transmissions that now seem archaic.A 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder sounds stodgy but is actually strong and smooth; a 3.2-liter inline-6 makes 240 horsepower; a turbocharged 3.0-liter six makes 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque; while the R-Design model using that engine is tuned to bring 325 horsepower.

Safety has been Volvo's thing forever.The XC60 gets Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS, and nearly a clean sweep from NHTSA, missing by one star in the rollover test.Its City Safety system alerts the driver to an imminent collision and brakes to prevent low-speed rear-enders.The system recently added Pedestrian Detection and Cyclist Detection.
