Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2008's identity crisis is partly solved, but as this is a mild update rather than ground-up rebuild, it was never going to be the CX-3 killer product planners dream about. With the new engine and transmission, though, the range is more appealing and easier to make sense of.
It retains what made the car so original at launch, with the polarising i-Cockpit, clever-on-a-budget interior detailing and, as it turns out, it's a tough customer loved by rural folk.
All of this won't rocket the Frenchie to market leadership, but it puts it in the mix where it was previously too confusing an idea for many buyers.

Pros
New engine and trans combo
Interior still cool
CarPlay across the range

Cons
Tight rear seats
Grumbly engine at low revs
Some cheap plastics

Previously overlooked small SUV gets a dose of credible performance from its new drivetrain.One of the legacy products from PSA (Peugeot and Citroen), the 2008 has been hamstrung since its local launch in 2013 by a poor selection of drivetrains. That is now resolved with the introduction of a facelifted model powered by the sparkling 1.2-litre turbo three-cylinder, driving through a six-speed automatic transmission. A reversing camera and new connectivity technology further enhance the 2008 package, all for no more than $1000 extra at entry level.
In the 2008 the new engine is quieter still than it was in the light hatch. The engine rarely made its presence felt in the SUV unless it was under load, accelerating up hill, for instance – when its distinctive three-cylinder warble could be clearly heard.

The new-look 2017 Peugeot 2008 has arrived,with the more muscled looking mini SUV axing its diesel engine offering and adding new safety and technology equipment.
The new model range is a petrol only affair, with the brand’s 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbo engine and six-speed automatic transmission aimed at appealing squarely at the majority of front-wheel-drive SUV buyers.
Styling wise, the revised 2008 sees the adoption of the brand’s family look, with a more pronounced grille, more angular bumper and revised headlights and tail-lights. The GT-Line model stands out from the other models with extra body cladding, black exterior highlights and more.

Top-notch safety scores

Cons
Below-average reliability ratings
Tricky-to-use infotainment system
Pricier than many competitors

The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a near-luxury contender at near-luxury prices. Its safety might be its biggest strong suit, which it rightly deserves.

The XC60's looks have aged in a hurry—inside and out.

The XC60 feels a step behind others in its class, but we're not sure what to blame

Four adults will fit comfortably in the XC60, with all the Ikea they can handle too.

Volvo has earned—and kept—its reputation as one of the safest automakers on the planet.

The options list is fairly comprehensive, but some good features are bundled in pricey packages.

The 2017 Volvo XC60 powertrain lineup is simpler now, but the results are largely the same.

Pros
Superlative safety
Impressive standard equipment
Good ride
Great front seats

Cons
Not particularly efficient
Aged styling
Leg room is limited in rear

Even though the 2017 Volvo XC60 is beginning to show its age, it's still a competitive compact SUV thanks to its top safety scores, spacious interior and solid performance.

For 2017, the Volvo XC60 simplifies its trim level and feature structure. Last year's 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine has been replaced by a turbocharged four-cylinder and all-wheel drive is available across the lineup.

Despite what you might think about an SUV powered by a small four-cylinder engine, the XC60 T5 should be more than adequate for most drivers. If you're regularly loading it to capacity with people and cargo, we recommend the more powerful T6. Fuel economy suffers slightly, but probably not enough to be a deal-breaker. Regardless of engine choice, the eight-speed transmission delivers smooth shifts and the available all-wheel drive makes it a capable handler in cold weather climates.

Pros
The efficient four-cylinder engines are more powerful than you'd think; top safety scores and integrated booster seats make the XC60 a great choice for families; cargo space is generous; all seats provide long-distance comfort.

Cons
Interior design and infotainment system are beginning to show their age; handling isn't as capable as some newer competitors.

Volvo has officially killed off the five-cylinder engine from its lineup with the introduction of a 2.0-liter turbo-four for the T5 AWD variant of the 2017 Volvo XC60. New 18- and 20-inch alloy wheel designs have also been added. All T6 variants now come standard with all-wheel drive.

The 2017 Volvo XC60 is a compact luxury crossover that slots below the larger seven-passenger XC90. Front-wheel drive comes standard with all-wheel drive optional on all but the T6 AWD and T6 R-Design models on which it’s standard.

Look for a second-generation XC60 to debut in the near future riding on Volvo’s new SPA architecture and possibly add a plug-in hybrid variant.

A front-drive XC60 T6 ended up in last place in a comparison test because it suffered from a rough ride because of the large alloy wheels and an interior that didn’t feel well built compared to its competitors. When we later drove the 2016 XC60 with all-wheel drive, we had a more favorable impression.

Pros
Comfortable seats
Spacious interior
Good safety ratings

Cons
Dated infotainment system
Transmission gets confused
Rough ride with larger alloy wheels
