New for 2019

Completely new for 2018, the XC60 returns for 2019 with minimal changes, the most notable being a faster processor for the Sensus infotainment system.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The XC60 is Volvo's midsize SUV, sandwiched between the smaller XC40 and larger XC90.

2019 XC60 Momentum: The base trim comes with dual-zone automatic climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming rearview mirror, power sunroof, leatherette seats, heated front seats, power driver's seat with memory, power passenger's seat, power tailgate, and a 9.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with 10 speakers and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity.

2019 XC60 R-Design: This trim adds 12V leather/cloth seats, power outlets in rear console and cargo area, auto-dimming exterior mirrors, rear park assist, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, keyless entry with hands-free power tailgate, satellite navigation, and paddle shifters

2019 XC60 Inscription: Top-line trims add heated windshield wipers, front passenger's memory seat, four-zone automatic climate control with cooled glovebox, and leather seats.

Performance and Fuel Economy

Volvo offers three variants of the 2019 XC60's 2.0-liter I-4. First up is the T5 application, with the 2.0-liter turbo-four making 250 hp and 258 lb-ft connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front- -drive models return an EPA-estimated 22/29 mpg city/highway while adding AWD drops those figures to 20/27 mpg. T6 models are all-wheel-drive only and feature a turbo- and supercharged I-4 producing 316 hp and 295 lb-ft mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Fuel economy for the T6 is 19/27. Plug-in hybrid T8 models pair the engine from the T6 with an 87 hp electric motor for hybrid system and a combined horsepower rating of 400 hp and 472 lb-ft, returning 26/28 mpg, or 58 mpg-e with the hybrid system active. The plug-in hybrid has an overall EV driving range of 17 miles before the gas engine turns on.

Safety

The 2019 XC60 is a 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick, and earned a front crash prevention designation of Superior. The XC60 fully avoided collisions both in the 12-mph low-speed and 25-mph high-speed autobrake test.

All XC60s come standard with a wealth of active safety features, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and large animal detection, oncoming lane mitigation, lane keep assist, driver alert control, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic high beams. An Advanced package adds a surround-view camera system, active bending headlights, and semi-autonomous driving capability.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

Volvo's midsize SUV features front/rear legroom of 41.5/38 inches, respectively. Cargo space is measured at 63.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

Technology

The 2019 Volvo XC60 comes standard with a 10-speaker stereo featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. R-Design and Inscription models have a Harman Kardon 14-speaker audio system. Optional is an 1100-watt 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system. Every XC60 features a partially or fully digital instrument cluster, with an 8.0-inch screen in Momentum trim levels and a 12.3-inch display on R-Design and Inscription models.

What We Think

In a recent Comparison Test against a Volkswagen Tiguan to determine the value of luxury cars at the $40,000 price point, the 2018 Volvo XC60 came out on top in practically every category. We found it to be "visually stunning" inside and out, and the "engine feels powerful and responsive." And although it handled well, "the ride is rougher than we'd otherwise expect from a Volvo." Good thing "the Volvo's seats, both front and back, are supportive and comfortable." We concluded by saying "with the XC60, Volvo delivers on the details, big and small."
