2010 Volvo XC60
2010 Volvo XC60
The XC60 is the smallest in the line of crossover vehicles from Volvo. This is the economy version of its bigger siblings the XC70 and the XC90. The compact crossover market has yet to be defined as even the larger crossover models are very new and still defining their place in the current auto industry. The one thing that buyers know when they look at the XC60 is that it is built to Volvos safety standards, which means it is build like a rock and is very safety conscious. The size of the XC60 puts it in direct competition with the BMW X3.

Starting at $32,400 the XC60 is still more expensive than many other compact crossovers, but there is a higher level of quality in most of Volvos products that many consumers are willing to pay for. There are 3 major trim levels available for the XC60 ranging from an inline six cylinder engine offering 235 horsepower to a turbocharged engine offering a much larger 281 horsepower. Each model also offers some variations of the interior accommodations and external flare that is offered.
2010 Volvo XC60 T6 R Design Front Three Quarters
Yowza! I was pleasantly surprised by this Volvo. Powerful and fun like a sports car with the storage of an SUV. Loved the interior trim and seats -- masculine and sporty. Seat heaters worked like a dream. Plenty of room for passengers and luggage, yet tight turning radius and compact size got me into some tight spaces.

I was also very impressed with the Volvo. The exterior is much more refined than previous Volvo crossovers, and the R-Design package in red with the big, five-spoke wheels is a knockout combo. When I saw Mike Ofiara drive by one morning, I thought he was in a Porsche Cayenne. A closer look reveals all the classic Volvo cues but put together in a nicely updated package.

For 2010, Volvo added the R-Design package to its XC60. It's intended to give the crossover sportier driving dynamics and looks. This newest edition of the 2010 Volvo XC60 starts at $42,400.

As it strivesfor a higher fuel economy average, Volvo is poised to sell diesel and plug-in hybrids this side of the pond. "It's unclear ultimately what percentage of each is going to drive the industry," Volvo CEO Doug Speck told Automotive News, speculating on which of the two would be more popular.

Volvo’s 2010 XC60 is an attractive crossover to begin with, but in an effort to make it sportier, it’s added a new R-Design model.

Later this year, Volvo will join the ever-expanding luxury crossover market with the new XC60. Pricing for the new crossover starts at a reasonable $33,320, allowing it to undercut the popular Lexus RX350.
