2010 Volvo XC60 T-6 SUV

2010 Volvo XC60 Review

(4 Stars)  Attractive alternative in the compact crossover set

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The XC60 is the smallest in the line of crossover vehicles from Volvo. This is the economy version of its bigger siblings the XC70 and the XC90. The compact crossover market has yet to be defined as even the larger crossover models are very new and still defining their place in the current auto industry. The one thing that buyers know when they look at the XC60 is that it is built to Volvos safety standards, which means it is build like a rock and is very safety conscious. The size of the XC60 puts it in direct competition with the BMW X3.

Starting at $32,400 the XC60 is still more expensive than many other compact crossovers, but there is a higher level of quality in most of Volvos products that many consumers are willing to pay for. There are 3 major trim levels available for the XC60 ranging from an inline six cylinder engine offering 235 horsepower to a turbocharged engine offering a much larger 281 horsepower. Each model also offers some variations of the interior accommodations and external flare that is offered.
