Who is Best Suited to Drive the Luxurious and Stylish Volvo XC60?

Before we get too involved in the minutia of what the XC60 is, the answer to the above question is: Everyone. This beautiful crossover is designed to be a treat for San Diego-area drivers who appreciate a SUV that provides a variety of powerful options and an enviable list of standard safety and technology features. You don't have to be a high-powered attorney or Wall Street-type to earn the chance to drive the superb XC60. Just find your way to Volvo Cars Escondido and take one for a test drive.

The XC60 makes other luxury cars jealous with a list of impressive standard features they can only dream about. Or at least make you pay extra for. For instance; the 2020 Volvo XC60 provides an enormous 12.3-inch digital dash display for your driver information. Try this list of standard safety features on for size:

  • Run-Off Road Mitigation and Protection
  • Oncoming Lane Mitigations
  • Driver Drowsiness Monitoring
  • Collision Mitigation with Active Braking
  • Traffic Sign Recognition
  • Lane Keep Assist

You get the point. It also has a standard rearview camera and a system that scans the Poway intersections for bikers, pedestrians and wild animals.

Did we mention the power you get from driving a XC60? The way powertrains work for Volvo is they come in the form of T5, T6 and T8 levels. The T5 is the base level four-cylinder that gives you an admirable 250 horsepower. Moving up to the T6 is the impressive supercharged version of the T5. That one churns out 316 horsepower. The T8 eAWD Hybrid engine. It takes the supercharged T6 and adds a electric motor and battery pack. The incredible gas mileage is enough to get you from San Marcos to Vista, during rush hour, without ever needing to stop for gas.

So where is the fun in driving a luxurious and powerful compact SUV around San Marcos, you may ask. The fun is deciding which trim level you want. Even the base-trim level Momentum gives you standard leather seats and a panoramic sunroof. So that's a great option. When you want to get sporty, take the R-Design and its athletic-based performance. However, if you want sport AND first-rate style, you'll want to drive the Inscription. It takes the sporty elements of the R-Design and gives it a touch of Volvo extravagance. For a high-powered and elegant hybrid, you'll appreciate the Polestar Engineered XC60.

There are a ton of features to love about the XC60. Whether you choose a 2020 episode or pre-owned Volvo XC60, you deserve to treat yourself to an affordable, elegant option for your next SUV.
