5 reasons to buy the 2018 Volvo XC60

1. An impressive interior experience

The 2018 Volvo XC60 interior sets itself apart from the crowd with an attention to detail rarely found in an SUV. High-end leather and cloth take comfort to a new level, while natural wood finishes with polished aluminum accents make the interior feel more like a high-class lounge than a family hauler. Regardless of the trim, from the base model to the top end, the 2018 Volvo XC60's plush interior will impress you.

2. Innovative technology

Stay connected on the road in a 2018 Volvo XC60, which includes an infotainment system, smartphone integration, and app connectivity. The Advanced Package adds a color heads-up display that provides you with essential information on the windshield below your line of sight, letting you keep your eyes on the road. The Convenience Package lives up to its name, adding functional tech like a hands-free power tailgate, adaptive cruise control, and an available HomeLink® connected app.

3. A variety of engine options to suit your needs

Three trims are available for the 2018 Volvo XC60, each designated by the engine that powers them. Using a unique mix of a supercharger and turbocharger, the 2018 Volvo XC60 T6 gets an impressive 316 hp out of a small 2.0L four-cylinder engine. The base 2018 Volvo XC60 T5 gets power from a turbocharged four-cylinder, while the T8 combines a four-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor. Every 2018 Volvo XC60 comes equipped with a capable AWD system for confident traction in snow and rain. Finally, if you regularly haul, the 2018 Volvo XC60 can tow up to an estimated 3,500 pounds when properly equipped (with any engine).

4. High-end features for a luxurious ride

With standard features that include a panoramic sunroof, natural wood accents, leather seating, and a crystal gear selector, the 2018 XC60 sets the tone for a luxurious trip. When you add the Luxury Seat Package, the seats come wrapped in soft Nappa leather, which is perforated for cooling. This package continues to treat you with massaging front seats, heated front/rear seats, and power cushion extensions.

5. High-performing hybrid model

The 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 hybrid is the most powerful model, with a total system power of 400 hp from an electric motor and four-cylinder engine. The 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 is a plug-in hybrid, which means you get a small EV-only range combined with an extended gasoline range. With a full charge, you get an EPA-estimated 18 miles of EV range (when new) followed by an additional 370 miles of the gasoline engine range.
