CarReview's Best SUV and Crossover Choices of 2010

2010 Volvo XC60

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.

The crossovers listed below represent the best for 2010. Click on any of the names below to learn why they are winners.

“For the XC60, the lower body is wide and the stance strong, while the upper section of the car has a sporty, dashing design.”

    A few crossovers that nearly made onto our top 5 list was the VW Tiguan, Ford Escape, and Subaru Outback.

    One crossover that almost made the top 5, but got dropped was the new 2011 Kia Sportage. The exterior and interior design was done really well, and it is a great value with all the goodies that are included as standard equipment. One thing we hated was the strong on-center feel of the electric steering and the stiff suspension setup.

    The Q5 *is* a no brainer. Great review and great vehicle.

    I’ve driven a few of these cars and the Ford Flex is the standout here.

    It is just so unexpected with its power, economy an handling. It drives like a touring car. Interior is awesome btw!

    I love the styling but understand it can be polarizing. It’s kind of square and ganster looking. Do you folks like the styling? Do women like it? Hmmm…
