The all-new Volvo XC60 SUV has been revealed at the Geneva Motor Show.
It looks very much like a smaller version of the XC90 from behind, while the front is a little more like that of Volvo’s S60, except a little more rounded. The all-new XC60 makes use of the same the same Scalable Product Architecture as the XC90 and replaces Volvo’s original XC60 that was first launched in 2008.
The new XC60 will be available with the D4 diesel engine that delivers 140kW and the D5 with PowerPulse technology delivering 173 kW. Petrol variants will include a 186 kW T5 and the T6, which with turbo- and supercharging, delivers 235kW and 400Nm of torque.
The SUV comes out with a forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control and the new oncoming lane mitigation, which allows the car to take over steering if the vehicle wonders across a lane, guiding it back into its own lane and out of the path of any oncoming vehicle detected by the car. This new system is active between 60 and 140 km/h.
The new Volvo XC60 is expected in South Africa in the second quarter of 2018.
The available engines, specifications and pricing will be confirmed closer to the time of launch.
