Review

The Volvo XC60 isn't the best large SUV to drive; if you're looking for something sportier there's the Porsche Macan, while the Audi Q5 can be more comfortable. Yet the XC60 looks and feels classy inside, is roomy and well equipped, making it a very strong choice. That's especially so in good-value Momentum trim.

Trim: Inscription

Range-topping Inscription trim does bring 19in alloy wheels and an even more upmarket interior with nappa leather, ambient lighting, wood trim and fully electric seats. However, it pushes the XC60’s price into the realm of altogether bigger and better cars, such as the Land Rover Discovery and Volvo’s own flagship XC90.

Engine: 2.0 B5P [250]

If you’re dead against a diesel, this 247bhp turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol is your best pure-petrol option. It's pretty quick in a straight line, but remember it'll also be more expensive to fuel than a D4.
