Volvo XC60 2.0T (A) Review
Having recently introduced a slew of the models with lower engine capacities, the downsizing finally reaches the XC60. We find out if the missing cubic centimetres have dulled the SUV's drive...

The Volvo XC60 was facelifted on Jul 2014.
Read our review of the facelifted version.

My 11th Car: Swedish tank indeed! `
My 1st Volvo ownership… Heard lots of horror stories about the brand but i begged to differ after 1mth of ownership for this 9y/o car. Bought this car when i saw the annual depreciation dipped below 18k & so far it's the lowest in this crazy COE period

A Great SUV `
I have test drove Audi A6, Q3, Q5, BMW 5 series, X3 and X5, Mercedes C200 and E200 and Lexus NX200 and RX200. I still find XC60 is the best value for money with the car build and power. It has smooth transmission and only Lexus is better and the worst is Merc and in terms of power, it beats the rest in the similar cc category. It has reasonable amount of feature

Not Like The Volvos of Old `
I've been driving the car for 13 months. Overall, the build quality of Volvos has deteriorated over the past few years. In terms of the feel of the car, it is lighter and a lot more powerful than older Volvos. It is also front wheel drive. Therefore, it does not have the same stability or road handling as older Volvos. Being used to my old XC90, I skidded the XC60 twice in the first week. Since then, I approach every corner with the expectation that unless I am very careful I will end up wrapped around a tree. When I raised it with Volvo, the service team told me that I had to drive these new cars very carefully due to the above factors. I took their advice and I am still accident free. I have had 3 major issues with the XC60 that were not present in the XC90. (1) The leather seats rub against the centre console and cause a loud squeaking noise; (2) sounds come from the dashboard (I have had a problem like this on a previous car and it was the result of insufficient soundproofing); And (3) the internal parts of my car seat hit me when I stop (it feels like a child kicking the back of the seat). Volvo has not resolved any of these issues. They are inherent to the car. My Auto Start / Auto Stop function stopped working after 4 - 6 weeks. My electronics starting failing after 12 months. Volvo blamed my car camera. But switching off the car camera has not made any difference. Incidentally, a couple of years ago the Volvo Service team tested different car cameras with plan to either sell or recommend the best ones. However, they couldn't get any to work satisfactorily and they told me that they were therefore unable to recommend any camera for the car. It is not clear to me if a car camera can be installed in the current Volvo models, but as soon as I started suffering any electronic issues, Volvo blamed everything on the car camera. So you can read what you like into that. This is my third Volvo, and definitely my last.

A rare gem that still sparkles `
The XC60 now comes updated with the DrivE engines made by Volvo, and an 8-Speed Gearbox. I am already quite familiar with the XC60 and I am pleased to report that the 8-Speed gearbox is a generally smooth and responsive gearbox. With our speeds, the gearbox seldom goes into 7th or 8th gear... With 8th gear usually being engaged at around 130km/h. The engine is surprisingly economical... I average around 11.5km/l and this is despite this being an unaerodynamic SUV that is packed with nice features. The car is generally quiet though strong crosswinds can throw this car off slightly and the accompanying noise intruding into the cabin (the GLE resists those better). What is surprising is the boot... It is more practical vs the GLE even though the GLE is a class above - I am able to fit 4 medium sized luggage into the XC60 but not in the GLE without removing the tonneau cover. The XC60 has a suspension that has an excellent compromise between comfort and handling. It has good primary and secondary ride comfort whereas the GLE has superior primary ride comfort but poor secondary ride comfort - it gets thrown off by multiple regular bumps that are littered on countrysides though when it comes to highway cruising, it settles down like how a Merc should ride. Well done to the XC60 then. What irks me is that this car doesn't have AWD as the agent chose not to spec it. The XC60 suffers as a result in slippery conditions when you try to put all 245 horses onto the (wet) tarmac. It's a shame really because the XC60, being such a tall and heavy vehicle, needs all the traction it can get. Without AWD, the XC60 is really more of a city dweller (i was almost stuck in wet grass and a little bit of mud). Overall, this vehicle is a vehicle that has lots of appeal. It is an excellent partner who takes care of you and whom you can depend on. Highly recommended.
