Volvo XC60 Competitive Comparison

How the Volvo XC60 Trounces the Competition

The 2020 Volvo XC60 is a feather in the cap of Volvo for a reason. This long-standing SUV has been a leader in the category for generations, pioneering several safety and technology innovations while providing a luxurious SUV experience that everyone from Worcester to Fitchburg, MA can appreciate. At Patrick Volvo Cars, we offer the Volvo XC60 as the luxury SUV alternative to drivers in Sterling and Shrewsbury, MA, and one drive will be all it takes to convince you that this luxury SUV is miles ahead of the pack.

Inviting Luxury

The level of comfort that can be found in the 2020 Volvo XC60 is enough to make you never want to get out of the driver's seat. For starters, the Nappa leather seats can be both heated and ventilated to provide you with direct comfort control no matter the conditions. As the temperature drops in winter, use the three-level seat heater to stay perfectly toasty despite the leather upholstery. The same is true for the summer, where ventilation gently pumps cool air through the perforated leather to keep you refreshed and comfortable behind the wheel. Add to that the available four-zone automatic climate control and rear-seat heaters and you have a luxury SUV experience that caters to everyone on board.

Perhaps the most stunning bit of kit on the 2020 Volvo XC60 is the standard power panoramic moonroof that allows for natural light to liven up the entire cabin. If it's too bright or too warm, and automatic sunshade can block out the light at the touch of a button, or you can slide the panel open to allow the fresh Sutton, MA air to stimulate your senses.

Powerful Performance

A trio of forced-induction engines gives the Volvo XC60 a satisfying level of power and acceleration without diminishing fuel economy. The base T5 engine is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit that is turbocharged to develop 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque while still achieving up to 29 mpg on the highway. The T6 takes the 2.0-liter four pot and adds both a turbo and supercharger to the mix to deliver 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque and still keep up to 27 mpg highway. Finally, there is the T8 plug-in hybrid. This setup adds an electric motor to the T6 and offers a combined output of 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque, will let you go up to 19 miles on all-electric power, and gives you 59 MPGe and 30 mpg highway.

Advanced Safety is Standard

Perhaps the biggest advantage the Volvo XC60 has over the competition is it's suite of standard safety features. With this luxury SUV you'll get forward collision alert and automatic emergency braking on every trim level to help keep you safe from hazards ahead. You'll also enjoy adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist that work to make highway driving safer, and Leominster drivers will appreciate the parking sensors that help you in and out of tight spaces with ease.

Connected Technology

Since both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard on the nine-inch vertically-mounted SENSUS infotainment display, you'll have no trouble staying connected behind the wheel. The Volvo XC60 can even come with a heads-up display that shows you your speed, road sign information, and navigation instructions, while the 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster offers a full-screen view of the map between your speed and rpm dials.
