The Volvo XC60 is a luxury crossover SUV that has been in production since 2008. The 2019 and 2020 Volvo XC60 both sit within the marque’s second generation. This model offers a fuel-efficient gas-powered engine, a turbocharged gas-powered engine, and a hybrid engine variant with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive powertrains. In simpler times, Volvo put together a terrific model that can appeal to nearly any buyer that’s searching for a new SUV.


There are several engine options available for the 2019 and 2020 Volvo XC60. The base trim, or T5 trim, comes standard with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces a maximum output of 250 horsepower. The T6 features a unique turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine capable of producing up to 316 horsepower. The T8 is a plug-in hybrid model that electrifies the T6 motor and produces up to 400 horsepower. Also, the 2020 Volvo XC60 will introduce another trim level that will contain a 415 horsepower engine based on the T8’s powertrain. All of these engine options deliver a shocking amount of acceleration from a stop.

The 2019 and 2020 Volvo XC60s are amongst the most fuel-efficient models in their class. The T5 trim-level engine with the front-wheel-drive powertrain averages about 22 city miles per gallon and 29 highway miles per gallon. The T5 engine with all-wheel-drive powertrain averages about 20 city miles per gallon and 27 highway miles per gallon, which are the same numbers as the standard T6 trim-level engine.


The Volvo XC60 has a unique, yet luxurious feel to it, as is expected from a luxury SUV model. The beautiful exterior comes with a selection of eight colors. The quality materials used in the interior make this model one of the best interiors in its class. The interior is also entirely customizable with six available color schemes to choose from. This is truly one of the better looking and unique luxury SUV models on the market.


Every Volvo XC60 (2019 or 2020 model year) comes with a standard infotainment system with a nine-inch touchscreen, BlueTooth, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. The nine-inch touchscreen is used for most of the functions of this model.

Volvo is known for providing tons of the most advanced safety technology available to automakers, and the 2019/2020 Volvo XC60 is no exception. These models come standard with driver condition monitoring, lane departure warnings, automated emergency braking, and a backup camera. Some of the most notable available (not standard) safety features include a heads-up display, a surround-view parking camera, active parking assistance, and Propilot. Propilot is a system that monitors the speeds of the vehicles around you and helps you maintain a speed relative to the flow of traffic. This system also makes minor adjustments to your steering wheel to keep your vehicle centered in its lane. As usual, Volvo has outdone itself on available safety features, and the 2019/2020 Volvo XC60 is one of the safest models on the market.
