Volvo Australia has announced aggressive pricing for its second-generation XC60 line-up due in October, with the mid-size SUV to kick off from $59,990 before on-road costs.
The seven-variant range is spread across three model grades – Momentum, Inscription and R-Design – and five engine options, which are all mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission with an all-wheel drive set-up.
Available with the Momentum ($59,990) and Inscription ($66,990) trim levels, the 2.0-litre D4 turbocharged four-cylinder diesel punches out 140kW at 4250rpm and 400Nm from 1750-4000rpm, allowing a 0-100km/h sprint time of 8.4 seconds while drinking 5.4L/100km on the combined cycle test.
Also offered in these grades is the 2.0-litre T5 turbo-petrol four, which produces 187kW at 5500rpm and 350Nm between 1500-4800rpm, sprinting to triple figures in 6.8s and sipping 7.8L/100km. The Momentum and Inscription versions are priced at $62,990 and $69,990 respectively.
The sports-focused R-Design spec ups the ante further with three unique engine choices, including a 2.0-litre D5 twin-turbo four-cylinder diesel ($73,990) that develops 173kW at 4000rpm and 480Nm from 1750-2250rpm, enabling 7.2s dash to 100km/h while consuming 5.6L/100km.
Additionally, a 2.0-litre T6 petrol four ($76,990) uses a turbocharger and a supercharger to punch out 235kW at 5700rpm and 400Nm between 2200-5400rpm, seeing off 0-100km/h in 5.9s and using 8.0L/100km.
Flagship responsibilities are handled by the $92,990 T8, which combines the T6 unit with a 65kW/240Nm electric motor as part of its plug-in hybrid system that outputs 300kW/640Nm in total. The dash from standstill to 100km/h comes up in a spirited 5.3s while drinking an efficient 2.1L/100km.
All XC60s come standard with AEB, steering support with oncoming lane and off-road mitigation, driver fatigue alert, road sign information, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, rear collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, 360-degree camera and park assist.
Every XC60 also includes a 9.0-inch touchscreen multimedia system, digital radio, satellite navigation, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto support, voice control, 10-speaker sound system and a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.
Meanwhile, the entry-level Momentum model grade even offers adaptive full-LED headlights, high beam assist, LED foglights, 19-inch alloy wheels, gloss-black front grille, electric tailgate with ‘kick’ function, dual-zone climate control, leather trim and electrically-adjustable front seats with lumbar adjustment and memory settings.
A $2500 'Lifestyle Package' adds heated front seats and a panoramic sunroof to the Momentum, while an alternative $6500 'Sports Package' includes heated front seats, sports steering wheel and cabin trim, larger 20-inch rims and a 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system.
Stepping up to the mid-spec Inscription extends the features list to 20-inch alloys, chrome front grille and side cladding, adaptive cruise control, 'Pilot Assist' autonomous tech, head-up display, 'Driftwood' trim, four-zone climate control and electric front seat side bolstering with thigh extenders.
The range-topping R-Design picks up 21-inch wheels, 20mm-lower sports suspension, sports bodykit with gloss-black and satin-chrome inserts, 'Metal Mesh' aluminium cabin inlays, sports seats and a charcoal roofliner.
An optional air suspension with 'Comfort' and 'Dynamic' adaptive modes is also part of a $7500 'Premium Package' that mixes the aforementioned 'Lifestyle Package' together with electric-folding rear seatback and headrests, as well as a tailored, trimmed dashboard on Inscription variants only.
