The base T5 drivetrain now comes with front-wheel drive as standard, offering all-wheel drive as an option.
Momentum trim loses its leather upholstery, replaced by simulated leather. A new individual option brings it back. This trim is also eligible for the Premium package (keyless entry/ignition, hands-free lift gate operation, self-dimming mirrors, power-folding rear seats with separate power-folding headrests at the outer positions, heated wiper blades, a garage door opener, partially autonomous parking with sensors front and rear and blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and steering assistance) and a Multimedia package (14-speaker/600-watt Harman Kardon audio system, navigation, a 12.3-in digital driver information display).
R-Design and Inscription trims come with the Harman Kardon system and the contents of the Premium package as standard.
Every 2019 XC60 gains drive mode settings, powered child locks for the rear doors and a 12-volt outlet in the rear. AWD versions have heated front seats as standard. All variants are eligible for a new Advanced package that includes Pilot Assist (partially autonomous driving with adaptive cruise control), a head-up display, active LED headlights with high-pressure cleaning and a 360-degree camera system.

Go straight for the T6 powertrain, or the T8 if you want a hybrid. There isn't much difference in pricing between R-Design and Inscription trims, so we'd go for the more luxurious version. If the budget can stretch to it, consider the Advanced package ($2,500) and the B&W sound system ($3,200). Find a Volvo XC60 for sale

2019 Acura RDX -- Spacious, well equipped for the money and makes almost every road feel like it's just been refinished with smooth tarmac.
2019 Audi Q5 -- Not as well equipped as the XC60 in standard form, but equally stylish in its own way.
2019 Lexus NX -- A big seller and well equipped, including a set of standard safety features. If the looks appeal, take one for a test drive.
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 never a bad thing. Take a look at the Lexus certified pre-owned (CPO) program.
