I have been wanting to try a Volvo out for a while now. I have heard so many amazing things about them being top rated on safety, which to us having 2 littles ones is a must when reviewing cars. The XC60 received a top five-star rating in government crash tests for overall, frontal and side crash protection. It also received the best possible rating of “Good” in all of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s crash tests, which is a rare achievement. Finally, the 2016 XC60 received a rating of “Superior” for its frontal crash prevention technology. One of the greatest features as a parent other the safety is the car has built in carseats. It’s so convenient and from what I hear it’s so comfortable.
The exterior of the XC60 T6 AWD is a small luxury crossover. It’s has a modern look with some sleek touches. I love the back of the car which offers a stylish look, but I think the front could be amped up a bit in terms of style.
The interior offers seating for 5 along with the built in car seats. XC60 cabin is a modern design. Volvo offers comfortable and supportive front seats, and is great for long road trips. The middle console is okay. I think that could be worked on. The screen is very tiny, which makes it hard to navigate at times. I wasn’t a big fan of the middle console. I think Volvo could change that up to make it more convenient for the driver and passenger.
The drive is easily the highlight of this vehicle. The pick up on the car is amazing and provides you with great acceleration. It also offers great fuel efficiency, better perhaps than any of the other vehicles I’ve had the pleasure of testing. I could easily see myself driving one of these every day.
All in all I give this car an 8.5 out of 10 for me. Volvo has come a long way from its boxy look and is high on the scale of classy vehicles. Visit http://www.volvocars.com/us
