The new Volvo XC60 is the perfect car for an active lifestyle, and it represents the next step in Volvo’s transformation plan.
The new Volvo XC60, the most anticipated model of the year has finally arrived in Greece!
The first cars have already been exhibited at Volvo Car Hellas’s stand at Golden Hall, under the Volvo Experience, the integrated introduction to the Swedish premium car maker.
The new car replaces Volvo’s highly-successful original XC60, which in the nine years since its launch became the bestselling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe with nearly a million units sold globally. The XC60 today represents around 30 per cent of Volvo’s total global sales.
The new XC60 offers Volvo’s award-winning T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range, delivering 407 hp and acceleration from 0-100 Km in just 5.3 seconds.
The new XC60 is launched with the diesel D4 engine at 190 hp and the D5 with PowerPulse technology delivering 235 hp. There is, also, the petrol-powered T5 delivering 254 hp and the T6, which with both turbo and superchargers attached, delivers 320 hp and 400 Nm of torque.
But it is not just under the hood that the new XC60 delivers healthy performance. The new CleanZone four-zone climate system removes harmful pollutants and particles from outside the cabin to deliver Scandinavian-fresh air on the inside.
Volvo Cars’ driver infotainment and connected services offer, Sensus, and the Volvo On Call app both receive a graphical update with improved usability. As in the 90 Series cars, smartphone integration with CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.
New comfort and safety technology
The new XC60, one of the safest cars ever made, is fully-loaded with new technology. Steer Assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
Volvo has 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. They have paid particular attention to making life easier for Volvo customers by providing them with the creature comforts and services that take the hassle out of everyday life.
Pilot Assist, Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance system, which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130 km/h, is available in the new XC60 as an option.
Volvo Cars have reached high levels of standard equipment and XC60 follows the same successful strategy that Volvo presented on 90 Series Cars.
Entry-level Momentum cars come with a good specification, a popular edition that exceeds the potential buyer’s needs. Those seeking a sportier look should consider the R-Design edition, while Inscription trim can boost the levels of luxury. Of course, you can choose among optional accessories, that can even more personalize your new Volvo XC60.
It is important to mention that two of the three new comfort and safety technologies are available in standard equipment, making Volvo XC90 the safest car that is ever produced!
Sometimes, the moments that never happen, matter the most. Welcome to the future of safety!
