Volvo has launched the second-generation XC60 SUV in India at a starting Price of Rs.55.90 lakhs with a fuel-efficient powertrain, increased safety systems and of course a luxurious feeling. The Volvo XC60 is provided with just a single variant, known as Inscription, as for now in India. However, the Swedish Brand looks determined enough to assemble the SUV in India just like the earlier XC90, as competition gets stronger like never before.
The SUV is pretty much inspired by its larger relative XC90. Highlights of design are 19 inch alloy wheels, waterfall grille, all LED headlamps and sleek but attractive tail lamps. The SUV is 44 mm longer, 11 mm wider and 14 mm shorter in height than earlier variants. The Ride is quite comfortable for 5 people. The interiors are familiar Volvo designs which by all means is a compliment. The standout of the Single piece Driftwood dashboard is the 9 inch Touchscreen Infotainment System. A 15 speaker system by Bowers and Wilkins, a Sunroof and all round Heated Seats are other Deign highlights.
The Volvo XC60 is powered by a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder turbocharged diesel Engine, and produces
235 PS of Maximum Horsepower and 480 Nm of Torque, thus easily makes it the most powerful SUV in its segment category. XC60 has a 8-Speed Automatic transmission and the Company claims to reach a top speed of 230 kmph.
Mileage: 11.20 kmpl,
Fuel Type: Diesel,
Fuel Tank: 71 Litres,
Engine: 1969 cc,
BHP: 235 PS,
No. of Cylinders: 5,
No. of Gears: 8 Speed.
The Volvo XC60 has fierce Competition from the likes of BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Audi Q5 and
Lexus NX 300h. However if you want a spory SUV, look elsewhere, also if you want a Off-roader SUV, this isn’t for you either. But if you are looking for a Compact Luxury SUV, this can turn out fantacy SUV for you because of the every reason mentioned earlier. With the kind of equipment it provides and several unique elements, it certainly has the potential to stand apart at a price range below 60 lakhs.
