Volvo XC60

Price $55,000 – $91,350
Fuel consumption 8.3 – 10.6 L/100km
The Car Guide rating 71%(view ratings)
In the hotly contested compact luxury SUV segment, the XC60 manages to stand out with upscale looks, ultra-comfortable seats and efficient powertrains. The one called B5 is a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine that produces 247 horsepower, with mild hybrid technology adding another 13 horsepower. Meanwhile, the XC60 Recharge T8 is a plug-in hybrid delivering 455 horsepower and enabling up to 58 km of zero-emission driving. Fit and finish is commendable, but issues with the infotainment system mar the experience.
