New Volvo XC60 prototype spotted in Amsterdam

17 June 2016

This heavily camouflaged prototype  of the second gen of Volvo’s XC60 luxury SUV was spotted in Amsterdam.

The SUV is expected in late 2017 or early 2018 and Carscoops revealed that it is a similar size to the current model, although it may be on a slightly longer wheelbase.  You can’t see much with regard to the styling but the car is expected to borrow a lot from the larger XC90.

It’s expected that the SUV’s safety and tech features will be upgraded to match the latest features available on the XC90 and S/V90 models.

This particular model gets its power from Volvo’s 2.0 liter T5 turbocharged petrol engine, which on the XC90 is rated at 190kW and 350Nm of torque. The range will include additional Drive-E  four-cylinder petrol engines and a plug-in hybrid variant and there will be an assortment of diesels too. Some markets may also get the option of three-cylinder engines at a later stage. Entry level XC60s will be front-wheel drive, with more powerful models to be combined with all-wheel drive.
