Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Former T8 plug-in hybrid is now called Recharge.Adaptive headlights, hands-free liftgate and rear USB-C ports added as standard.

Pros
Elegant interior design
Spacious second-row seating
Many standard safety tech features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Too many controls tied to frustrating touchscreen interface
Ride is a little busier than you might expect from a luxury crossover

The XC60 receives several new standard features for 2021, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and front parking sensors, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design and power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Volvo has eliminated AM radio on the XC60, but fans of the format will still be able to listen via a provided app, TuneIn, through the infotainment system.

Pros
Handsomely designed inside and out,
good fuel economy from all three powertrains,
plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Infotainment system response lags at startup,
hybrid powertrain needs refinement,
dinky interior storage bins.

Cons

Requires premium fuel
It’s not in our driveway now
