Very slick, very sophisticated, the Volvo XC60 is the Gwyneth Paltrow of SUVs. Just a little more elegant than those around her with a hint of smugness, it’s very expensive looking but also understated. Never bolshy or overdone. This car is a lesson in the art of refinement.
Inside doesn’t disappoint. Immediately eye-catching are the bright yellow seat belts which add an original edge to the design and match the brake calipers behind the wheels outside the car (first thing my six-year old daughter noticed, the wheels are almost at her eyeline).
External white stitching on the black nappa leather seats and a smooth leather steering wheel make you feel good inside the car. The heated front seats also have a massaging feature and there is a huge panoramic sunroof which extends to the back seat.
Everything from the vertical air conditioning vents, large portrait shaped screen and metallic mesh accents throughout the interior, as well as the cool metallic speakers give an original twist to the design and is definitively stylish luxury. Not just luxury.
