Every single Volvo car, including the stunning and carefully crafted 2022 Volvo XC60 SUV, which is the company’s best-selling model, embodies the Swedish design sensibility that is unique to the company. The XC60 receives an Editors’ Choice award for its sleek exterior and stylish embellishments, which allow it to posture impeccably in traffic while the inside provides a luxurious haven from the stresses of the daily commute.
In addition to a high-performance plug-in hybrid, there are three different alternative powertrains available. We think the majority of customers will find the cargo capacity suitable, despite it not being as big as competitors like the Audi Q5, BMW X3, or Mercedes-Benz GLC-class. The XC60’s shiny exterior is kept looking new by a 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital gauge display, and a number of driver-assistance technologies.
Engine, Power and Transmission
The three unique engines available for the XC60 are the B5, B6, and T8, each of which is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Under the hood of XC60s with the standard B5 badge, a 48-volt hybrid system and a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine producing 247 horsepower. The B6’s turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine is identical to the B5’s, but the supercharger gives it more power. On our test track, the B6 engine took 6.6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph, which is slower than the outgoing T6 model but feels a bit peppier than cars with the base B5 engine. To generate 455 horsepower, the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain combines the B6’s engine with two electric motors.
2022 Volvo XC60 interior
The 2022 Volvo xc60 interior is full of stylish and sumptuous materials resembling those seen in more expensive Volvos. Adult-sized accommodations are available on both rows of the peaceful, cosy cabin. The XC60’s cabin has a decidedly Scandinavian flavour, which we’d expect from a current Volvo.
Clean lines and high-quality materials provide a distinctly Scandinavian flavour to the XC60’s cabin, which we’d expect nothing less from a modern Volvo. In our tests, the XC60 ranks in the middle of its competitors in terms of cargo capacity; with the rear seats folding, we were able to stow 20 of our carry-on luggage. The interior cubby storage is limited, and the cargo-area bin is one of the tiniest we’ve seen.
Infotainment and features
All XC60 variants are equipped with a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display that runs the most recent Google-based software from Volvo. The system includes voice commands through Google Assistant as well as a number of customization possibilities. Standards include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot powered by a 4G LTE broadband connection.
