Volvo Car Australia has announced the pricing of its all-new XC60 SUV which is set to arrive in local showrooms in October.
Priced from $59,990 the new XC60 will be available in three variants – Momentum, Inscription and the sporty R-Design.
According to Volvo, the new model is loaded with new safety technology that makes it one of the safest cars on the road. Steer Assist has been added to Volvo’s City Safety System, while a new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation (active between 60-140km/h) uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions if the driver unwittingly wandered out of a driving lane.
Meanwhile, Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions. Pilot Assist, Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance system, which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130 km/h, is available in the new XC60.
On the engine front, the D4’s diesel engine offers 140kW and the D5 with Power Pulse technology delivers 173kW. The petrol-powered T5 delivers 187 kW and the T6, with both turbo and superchargers, delivers 235kW and 400 Nm of torque.
Volvo’s T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid comes in at the top of the range, delivering a combined 300kW and acceleration from 0-100km/h in a claimed 5.3 seconds, while returning a rated combined fuel consumption of just 2.1L/100km.
Inside, Volvo’s easy-to-use Sensus infotainment system makes its debut in the XC60 featuring a large 9-inch high-resolution touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
