Overview

What's New in the 2016 Volvo XC60?

The only change is that the front passenger seat no longer has a fold-flat function. And the turbo/supercharged engine in the T6 can now be paired with all-wheel drive (AWD). See the 2016 Volvo XC60 models for sale near you

Which XC60 is the Best?

As long as all-wheel drive is not a must-have, the T6 Drive-E FWD with the Platinum package represents a well-equipped and powerful SUV for under $50,000. Find a Volvo XC60 for sale

 

How Much Does a 2016 Volvo XC60 Cost?

The 2016 Volvo XC60 is offered in T5 Drive-E, T5 AWD, T6 Drive-E, T6 AWD and T6 AWD R-Design trim levels.

The T5 Drive-E ($37,595) comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, 8-way power adjustable front seats with driver's-side memory settings, remote keyless entry, roof rails, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and the Sensus Connect infotainment system with a 7-in central screen, eight speakers, satellite radio and HD Radio, a USB port and auxiliary input. It also comes with Volvo's City Safety system, which can bring the vehicle to a full stop at speeds under 15 miles per hour.

The T5 AWD ($39,095) has the 5-cylinder engine, 6-speed automatic transmission, all-wheel drive and the same equipment as the T5 Drive-E.

The T6 Drive-E ($42,345) adds the 302-hp turbocharged and supercharged engine, keyless entry/ignition, leather seating surfaces, an adaptive digital thin-film-transistor display, a panoramic sunroof with a sunshade and paddle shifters.

The T6 AWD ($43,645) brings a turbocharged 3.0-liter engine and all-wheel drive, along with all the equipment found on the T6 Drive-E.

Topping the range is the T6 R-Design AWD ($47,945), which comes with 20-in wheels, a sport suspension and several other appearance features inside and out to enhance the performance-oriented feel.

A Premier package is offered on T5 models and brings features up to the T6's equipment level. A higher-level Platinum package includes navigation, a rearview camera, a power lift gate and a Harman Kardon 12-speaker sound system.

Volvo also offers a Climate package, adding heat to the windshield-washer nozzles, windshield, steering wheel and both rows of seats. A Technology package includes adaptive cruise control, Volvo's Road Sign Information system, lane-departure warning and a more advanced version of the City Safety system.

The Sport package adds sport seats and 20-in alloy wheels. The Inscription package (T6 only) adds special soft-leather upholstery, black headliner, a leather-wrapped dashboard and front console, power lumbar support, wood inlays and inscription scuff plates and mats. A dual-screen rear entertainment system is also available.

Fold down the versatile 40/20/40-split rear seats for maximum cargo space of 67.4 cu ft., which is more than respectable for this class. Even with the seatback fully in place, there's still 30.8 cu ft. of room behind it.

Safety

Is the 2016 Volvo XC60 a Safe Car?

The XC60 features standard stability control, six airbags and Volvo's City Safety system. It also offers a long list of optional accident-avoidance technology, including the new Road Sign Information system, lane-departure warning and adaptive cruise control, plus a blind spot monitoring system that includes rear cross-traffic alert, as well as parking sensors at both ends.

Six airbags may not seem like many, but crash tests count -- and the XC60 aced them. In the government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration crash testing, it scored a perfect five stars in all categories. Similarly, the independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the XC60 its top rating of Good in every category and named it a Top Safety Pick+.

Competition

2016 Volvo XC60 vs the competition

2016 Audi Q5 -- Smaller inside than the XC60, the Q5 has equal styling panache, and it's fun to drive.

2016 BMW X3 -- Arguably the best of the bunch, the X3 has driving fun, tech, equipment and quality, all in high measure.

2016 Lexus NX -- A relative newcomer, the NX is already a big seller. If the looks appeal, take one for a test drive.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class -- The erstwhile GLK has been revamped, redesigned and renamed. It's based on the current C-Class sedan and specializes in comfort and style.

Used Lexus RX -- Admittedly, the RX doesn't drive as well as the XC60. But if we're going down the pre-owned route, a high-quality Japanese machine is no bad thing.
