2019 Volvo XC60 enters its second generation. With slightly larger dimensions, the XC60 gains more interior space, and a revised suspension design improves the crossover’s handling. The XC60 is available in both gasoline and plug-in hybrid engine configurations.
The 2019 Volvo XC60 luxury compact crossover feels like an occasion.
Volvo XC60 is a more affordable, front-wheel-drive version.
Part of that special feeling in the crossover is its high-quality and sharp interior. It’s quiet and calm, serene and cozy without feeling cluttered. The exterior wraps a familiar shape around a smaller frame, compared to the three-row XC90, punctuated by signature headlights up front that cut a clean shape.
The XC60 is available with one of three turbocharged powertrains, including a plug-in hybrid. The T5 will be the starting point for many shoppers, including those tempted by the front-drive T5’s $40,000 price tag. A 2.0-liter turbo-4 that makes 250 horsepower hooks up with an 8-speed automatic and front- or all-wheel drive. A supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 makes 316 hp and mates to all-wheel drive only. We’ve driven this version most often, and it’s more than adequately powered. A T8 plug-in hybrid teams the same turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter inline-4 to a 10.4-kWh battery rated for nearly 20 miles of electric-only range. The T8 is the most efficient way to travel to the XC60, but also the most expensive.
An optional air suspension upgrades the compact crossover’s ride from serene to sublime, and well worth the optional money—if it’s available.
Official crash data for the 2019 Volvo XC60 isn’t yet complete, but what’s in is good.
Luxury touches in the 2019 Volvo XC60 don’t ruin the crossover’s primary mission: comfortably hauling people and cargo.
Despite measuring 5 inches shorter than the XC90, the smaller crossover still agreeably holds five people (four is better) with room in the back.
The IIHS calls the XC60 a Top Safety Pick thanks to “Good” scores on the crash tests it has performed and a “Superior” rating for its automatic emergency braking.
Those scores and Volvo’s available driver assist features to help it score an 8 out of 10.
