2012 volvo xc60 Reviews and News

2012 Volvo XC60
2012 Volvo XC60
Last year, the 3.2 base model was added to the XC60 lineup, which mostly carries over for 2012. One notable change is to the R-Design package (firmer suspension, retuned steering, and appearance tweaks), which used to be available as a 3.2 and a T6 but is now only available as the T6. The R-Design also benefits from the same upgrades to the engine as the S60 R-Design, which means an additional 25 hp and 29 lb-ft from the 3.0-liter turbo six. That additional power makes this small crossover quite a rocket, as the 300-hp in the T6 AWD already was more than enough to make the XC60 move quickly off the line and down the road. Thanks to torque-vectoring four-wheel drive on the various T6 models, the XC60 performs more like a sport sedan than a tall crossover. The interior is very comfortable, with some of the best seats on the market and good outward visibility despite the angled rear hatch and sweeping beltline. The XC60's exterior is stylish without being austere, with attractive LED lighting accenting the front and rear ends. Volvo's City Safety low-speed collision-mitigation system made its debut on the XC60 and is standard here; blind-spot monitoring, a pedestrian-detection system, and adaptive cruise control with distance alert are all optional. The XC60 presents a comprehensive package that matches or betters its competition on style, equipment, luxury, and price.

Of the current Volvo offerings, the XC70 is the most station wagon-like of the bunch. But the fact that the XC60 handily outsells the XC70 is proof that what the market wants is different from what many purists and I believe Volvo should be building.
Volvo VN Hybrid Truck Mean Green Front Three Quarter
A diesel-hybrid Volvo commercial truck nicknamed “Mean Green” recently set new world speed records at Utah’s Wendover Airfield. Recording a speed of 147.002 mph in the Flying Kilometer, and 95.245 mph in the Standing Kilometer, the hybrid big rig broke records in both events.
2012 Volvo XC60 Inscription Embroidered Head Rest
To celebrate the XC60 crossover becoming Volvo's best-selling model in 2011, a special-edition Inscription model has been released. The car follows the Volvo C70 Inscription, which was unveiled just before last year's Los Angeles auto show.

It's not easy to make a good batch of chili, but making a great batch is more difficult than simply following a recipe. We know this because Volvo literally pitted a bunch of journalists against one another in a chili cook-off while we were in Scottsdale, Arizona, to drive four of its models equipped with the new performance-enhancing Polestar Package. Just as with chili, taking a car from good to great isn't always easy. Volvo has already been doing an admirable job with its lineup of beautifully designed and fun-to-drive cars like the S60 sedan, the XC60 crossover, the XC70 wagon, and the C30 hatchback. What the Swedish brand has been lacking with its most recent product renaissance is a little spice.

In what was likely one of the key factors sealing Volvo’s sale to Chinese automaker Geely from Ford in 2010, the parent company is poised to take advantage of the Swedish automaker's technological expertise, thanks to a recently-announced technology sharing agreement.
