New Volvo XC60 – Geneva Motor Show Live
Aravind Jayachandran, I'm a huge petrolhead, an automobile engineer, a massive fan of Ferrari, and loves collecting die-cast models for inspiration.
Will go into production in mid-April at the Torslanda Plant in Sweden.
The second generation Volvo XC60 has made its world debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show today, revealing the exterior and interior in full glory. It is confirmed to go into production in mid-April at the Torslanda Plant in Sweden.
As expected, the latest XC60’s exterior follows Volvo’s new design philosophy that influences the Volvo XC90, S90 and V90. The basic design looks a bit familiar, but incorporates elements from their latest designs, such as a wide grille flanked by LED headlamps with Thor hammer LED DRLS, and a sportier bumper design. The profile looks slightly stronger with bolder character lines and a wider stance, while the rear-end has the characteristic vertical LED taillamps and dual exhaust tips.
Inside, the design look largely similar to the S90, featuring the simple layout trimmed with premium materials. It comes standard with the vertically oriented Sensus infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver instrument display, leather seat upholstery and open-pore wood trim. Unlike the XC90, the XC60 is a strict 5-seater.
The XC60 will offer three petrol options and two diesel motors: D4, D5, T5, T6 and T8 Twin Engine hybrid. The diesel range is powered by a 2.0L four cylinder turbodiesel motor that produces 190 hp (D4) and 235 hp, while the petrol range also gets a 2.0L four cylinder engine producing 254 hp (T5) and 320 hp (T6). The range-topping T8 combines the T6’s supercharged and turbocharged 2.0L engine to an electric motor, producing 407 hp. It is capable of sprinting from 0-100 km/h in 5.3 seconds.
