Volvo XC60 Review, For Sale, Interior, Colours, Specs & News

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 B5 Momentum Mhev starts at $67,990 before topping out at $80,990 for the XC60 B6 R-Design Mhev.

Volvo XC60 Q&As

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

  • Where is the Volvo XC60 made?

    Australian delivered Volvo XC60s built between 2009 (when the vehicle was launched here) and 2017 were built at Volvo’s plant in Ghent, Belgium. For the current-model XC60 (launched in 2017) production moved to the Gothenburg plant in Sweden.

  • 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.
