It is difficult not to get impressed with the style, luxury, efficiency and safety features of the 2019 Volvo XC60. Inside and out, XC60 flaunts top-notch build quality that has been a hallmark of Volvo’s luxury craftsmanship. Acceleration and handling on the XC60 has to be the envy of most cars in its class. It is satisfyingly powerful and stable at high speeds on a straight road and super agile, light on turns. We can’t stress enough about its impressive fuel economy of over 12 km per liter while driving in the city and 16 while on the highway. The gearbox deserves some praise also. Its automatic upward and downward shifting of gears strikes a near perfect balance between engine performance, power and fuel economy. As a luxury crossover SUV; it has it all but car buyers in the UAE have historically preferred the Audi Q5 over the Volvo XC60. It is however, only this year that tables have turned in favor of Volvo XC60. Volvo’s renaissance in the UAE started back in 2016 with the launch of the new XC90 SUV. Ever since then, Volvo has been on a roll with increasing popularity and improved sales from a completely renewed lineup of sedans, wagons, crossovers and SUVs.

Volvo has given much importance to exterior design angles of the XC60. R-Design’s exterior styling makes it look sportier with silver exterior mirror caps and a more aggressive front grille and bumper.
XC60 R-Design looks bold without looking bulky. It is equipped with full-LED headlights (automatic bending) and distinctively T-shaped daytime running lights.
Fog lights are fit in the front spoiler while rear lights flow into the tailgate and complete the impressive design statement. Wheels are 19 inch Diamond Cut Alloy in Tech black matt color.
Interior:XC60’s plush interior continues to charm the passengers every time they ride in the car. Volvo is one of the top car makers when it comes to cabin comfort, material quality, design and finish. It has an aluminum interior trim and unique black sport seats covered in leather and microsuede. The infotainment system can be a little complicated to use. Its the swiping between screens like an iPad that gets confusing and you end up in a different menu. Infotainment display is however, sharp and crisp with loads of valuable info on trip economy, engine performance and other car vitals. Sensus navigation system is truly next level. It shows approaching buildings in 3D and displays vital information such as the next speed radar distance on the head up display. Driving in the UAE, this is a huge plus every admits to it. Volvo’s high performance sound system is loud, crisp and turns the car into a concert venue.Its cargo capacity is better than Audi Q3, BMW X3 and Mercedes-Benz GLC; all of this without compromising the passenger rear seating.
