The Volvo XC60 continues to captivate a new generation of Volvo buyers, while continuing to attract those who are loyal to the brand.

The XC60 is all about performance and value. The new dynamic package, available for the T6 AWD, includes Volvo's four-c active chassis, speed sensitive power steering and dual xenon gas discharge headlights with active bending light.

For those who seeking value in the XC60, you will engine provides 240 horsepower with ULEV II emissions rating or 230 horsepower with PZEV (partial zero emissions vehicle) rating. Front-wheel drive is standard while AWD is optional. Every XC60 features a standard 6-speed gear automatic transmission.

The premier level trim has much to offer. From two laminated glass panels, power sunshade, dark tint rear windows, silver roof rails, side window trim, aluminum inlays for the steering wheel, and a power passenger seat.

The trim can be enhanced with a power tailgate that has programmable memory setting, keyless drive with personal car communicator (PCC), two-way car communication, and more.

Continuing Volvo's quest as a pioneer and leader in vehicle safety systems, the XC60 introduces the world's first city safety driver support system. This unique system is aimed at preventing or mitigating the likelihood of a collision by employing a closing velocity sensor. Depending on the closing speed, city safety will either pre-charge the brakes or automatically brake the XC60 to help avoid a rear-end collision or lessen the impact.

To address other safety concerns, Volvo has developed efficient features to help drivers avoid or reduce the severity of accidents caused by distraction and driver fatigue. The tech safety package includes adaptive cruise control with queue assist, collision warning with full auto brake, pedestrian detection with full auto brake, distance alert, driver alert control and lane departure warning.
