A Swede Roll

Volvo’s new XC60 blends excellent sporty staying with that of what most would expect out of a premium SUV. With Singapore’s growing taste for most things SUV-ish, Volvo has delivered a car which we could safely say, takes things a notch up, and doing it Volvo’s own way.

Safety is always a priority with any Volvo, and the XC60 does impress with Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Run-off Road Mitigation
What we like:
Exterior styling
Interior materials and build quality
What we dislike:
T6 engine does consume a little more

With 400Nm of torque on tap and 320bhp, the 2.0 litre T6 engine is twin-charged, with a supercharger helping with low-end torque, and gets the XC60 to 100km/h in a very respectable 5.9 seconds; with the engine delivering this performance in linear style.

Ride comfort is near-excellent. We would prefer however the rims to be a size smaller, with more rubber, as we learnt very quickly that skipping over worn-down road surfaces, with tree roots under them, sends a series of jolts, which are fortunately arrested by the optional air suspension.

But we must admit, that road handling is very impressive for a car this tall, even when the 2,865mm wheelbase is on the longer side, and in our books built with a lean to a comfortable drive.

Safety is always a priority with any Volvo, and the XC60 does impress with Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Run-off Road Mitigation, just some of the built-in features, ensuring that cars are able to steer back into lane and away from the path of oncoming vehicles, and to prevent the car from leaving a road respectively.

Compared to its German counterparts, the Volvo styling is actually a very refreshing change, and we do truly like the materials and build quality of the dash. With the optional air suspension providing better access, the XC60 can be quite a bit of fun to own, allowing this road-biased SUV to go (just a little more) where other cars would not.

The transaction was very smooth from the minute I get on to their website trying to sell my car till the car ownership transferred and have the money paid by Pay Now into my account. It only takes less than 3 days. The person attending to me are very professional, Jon at the phone in their office and Sean Tan who came down to view and test the car.
