Volvo Cars revealed the long-awaited new XC60 SUV at the recent Geneva Motor Show.

The new car replaces Volvo’s highly successful original XC60, which in the nine years since its launch became the bestselling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe with nearly a million units sold globally.

The XC60 today represents around 30 per cent of Volvo’s total global sales.

The new XC60 SUV, one of the safest cars ever made, is fully loaded with new technology. Steer Assist has been added to the ground breaking City Safety system.

A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.

Pilot Assist, Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance system, which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 80 MPH, is available in the new XC60 as an option.

Performance

The new XC60 SUV offers Volvo’s award-winning T8 Twin Engine gas plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range, delivering 400 hp and acceleration from 0-100 km/h in just 5.3 seconds.

But it is not just under the hood that the new XC60 delivers healthy performance.

The new CleanZone four-zone climate system removes harmful pollutants and particles from outside the cabin to deliver Scandinavian-fresh air on the inside.

Volvo Cars’ driver infotainment and connected services offer, Sensus, and the Volvo On Call app both receive a graphical update with improved usability.

As in the 90 Series cars, smartphone integration with CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.
