Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design Review
A Swede Roll

and I could swear that the rear flanks of the XC60 does ape the classic Porsche a little...

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.

A Treat For The Eyes
Our test unit was the R-Design kitted T6 with very large 21” Matt Black Diamond Cut 5-triple spoke rims….. very good to look at, but we’d advice to dial it down at least one rim size for the sake of comfort. The XC60’s side profile we feel, would look fab with just about any rim size on offer thrown on to the car. It is really that pretty!

Adding on to the traditional reassuring Volvo shoulders, there is more pronounced sculpting towards the rear, with C-shaped tail lamps which visually carry the sill below the rear windshield, with the “VOLVO” brand displayed proudly.

Up in front, Volvo’s signature “Thor’s Hammer” headlamps have evolved just a little, with the daytime running “hammers” meeting the grille, from when the equally attractive XC90 SUV was first launched.

The R-Design badging means added kit above whatever that the Momentum trim has to offer, and you can see it in the body coloured bits of trim, making the SUV sportier in appearance. Dual integrated end pipes, body coloured lower inserts are just some of the goodies that come with this.

We did attend the launch of this car a while ago, with Vice President of Design for Volvo Cars, Jonathan Disley (who known to be a Porsche fan), and we did see an image of a Singer Porsche 911 sitting on the mood board, and I could swear that the rear flanks of the XC60 does ape the classic Porsche a little.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
