Volvo XC60

Volvo’s medium XC60 has been one of the Swedish brand’s most popular products since its launch in 2009, and became one of the first premium mid-sized SUVs in the process.

It’s even enjoyed success as a fully fledged highway patrol car in country NSW (in T6 form). An all-new XC60 was launched in 2017, built on top of a new, flexible platform that is set to go underneath all of the company’s cars, and already underpins the larger XC90 SUV and S60 sedan.

The XC60 D4 MOMENTUM (AWD) starts at $62,990 before topping out at $98,990 for the XC60 T8 POLESTAR (HYBRID).

Volvo XC60 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volvo XC60 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Volvo XC60 2019: Why do I already need new brakes?

    This is a pretty common complaint from owners of a lot of European makes and models. To maximise braking performance, a lot of manufacturers (including Volvo) use a relatively hard brake pad and a relatively soft brake rotor. With the result that by the time the brake pads are worn enough to be replaced, so too are the rotors (discs).

    However, the general expectation is that a vehicle should be capable of covering about 60,000km before this work needs to be done, so the 30,000km on your car suggests the brakes work harder than perhaps you think they do.

    As for the price, I’d assume that to be using genuine Volvo parts. Shopping around and using aftermarket replacement parts could almost halve that quote.

  • Volvo XC60 2014: Leaking clutch seals in automatic transmission

    Yes, I think it’s reasonable, nothing lasts forever, and you’ve had a good run out of the car to date. Accept it and move on.

  • Volvo XC60 2017: Exccessive brake pad wear

    That is excessive. Try an independent mechanic or brake service outlet and you should be able to have it done for much less.

  • How to reset maintenance light on Volvo XC60?

    Maintenance lights are an important way your car tells you it needs to go to a mechanic and have consumables like engine oil, or faulty parts, changed. There are ways to turn these lights off when they illuminate, but that does not fix the problem (which is the reason the light turned on in the first place), so if you see the maintenance light come on just book your car in with a mechanic to have it diagnosed and fixed properly. They can turn the service light off for you.

Volvo XC60 Interior

The Volvo XC60 has one of the more interesting interior designs. As these images show, its dashboard immediately looks premium thanks to its bisecting bright trim, while the touchscreen multimedia system positioned central is orientated vertically, which is a rareity. Unsurprisingly, there's plenty of nice leather throughout.
