It’s the perfect car for an active lifestyle, and it represents the next step in our transformation plan,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive, Volvo Car Group.

2017 XC60Comfort & Safety in the 2017 XC60

Did you know the 2017 Volvo XC60 is one of the safest cars ever made? The first thing to remember, it’s packed with new technology and safety features. For this new model, Steer Assist was added to Volvo’s City Safety system. Also, a new safety system, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions. Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System uses Steer Assist to reduce the risk of a collision while changing lanes. Pilot Assist is also available as an option on the new 2017 Volvo XC60.

“We have focused on building a car that can deliver pleasure to all of your senses – from a commanding view of the road ahead in a beautifully appointed and calm cabin, to a safe, inspired and confident ride,” said Henrik Green, Senior Vice President Product & Quality at Volvo Car Group. “We’ve paid particular attention to making life easier for our customers by providing them with the creature comforts and services that take the hassle out of everyday life.”

The new 2017 Volvo XC60 also offers the award willing T8 Twin Engine gas plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range. It can deliver 400 horsepower. Another key point to mentions is that it can also accelerate from 0 to 60 in 5.3 seconds. How awesome is that?

On the Inside

Volvo had this to say about the inside…

“The XC60 is an SUV not designed to look down on others but to drive. The exterior has an athletic sculpture with a subtle, timeless quality. The interior is a masterful composition of well-resolved architecture, beautiful materials and the very latest technology – all perfectly blended together. The XC60 provides a true Scandinavian experience which will make our customers feel special,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President, Design at Volvo Car Group.
