A simply incredible object of automotive engineering, a superb driving experience with excellent ride and handling an a cabin ambience which exudes quality.
Even the briefest of glances at this XC60’s taut lines reveal a shape that has little in common with the boxy Volvos of old. Indeed, in this cars R-Design spec, the XC60 is quite visually arresting, with sharp creases, a strong shoulder-line, suggestive twin tail-pipes, and 18-inch alloy wheels.
The interior is equally appealing, with a welcome simplicity to its lines and a clear focus on the driver. It’s also home to Volvo’s trademark floating centre stack which houses the uber-intuitive climate controls and offers a useful storage space behind it.
The seats in our R-Design offer not just plenty of support but also an impressive range of adjustment that should make it easy for drivers of all sizes to get comfortable.
The boot of this XC60 has been endowed with one of the most practical cargo spaces in its segment, offering 655 litres of space as standard, rising to 1,455 litres with the seats folded.
Our car has covered a mere 12,200 miles and looks stunning resplendently finished in Black Sapphire Metallic with a contrasting Off Black Full Leather interior.
