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.

get the best price

Trim: R DESIGN Pro

Keeps the sporty looks of R-Design but adds even bigger (21in) alloy wheels, air suspension, a heated windscreen, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, a powered tailgate, adaptive LED headlights and LED foglights. It is rather pricey, though, and the air suspension results in an inconsistent ride.

Engine: 2.0 B5D

The B5 (D) has 232bhp, but we've not tried it yet. It's hard to see why it's worth the added expense over the D4 or B4 (D), though.
