Volvo XC60 T6 R-Design AWD: Traditional Volvo obsessions with safety and ergonomics have found their way into one of the more attractive SUVs on the road. This mid-sized SUV seems to be the right canvas for the Volvo design language both inside and out. The upgraded for 2011 3.0 liter 300 hp turbocharged engine moves the XC60 with alacrity and grace. The sport tuned suspension of the R-design model provides more feedback than the standard T6, but does not compromise the traditional Volvo smooth ride on rougher roads. Interior space is well thought out and the seats are some of the best in the business.
Safety is first with Volvo and beyond top safety ratings the XC60 carries an abundance of technologies that treat driver and passenger as its most important feature. Many will say that perceived safety is one of the reasons SUVs caught America’s attentions. In the case of the XC60, the safety is real and wrapped in an unusually entertaining and beautiful package.
