KBB Expert Review

Vehicle Details Interior  Dashboard, center console, gear shifter view photo

As befitting a Swedish automobile, the XC60's interior is sleek and understated. A new dash layout includes an available TFT adaptable digital instrument cluster that allows the driver to select different settings and colors. Still onboard is Volvo's clever ventilation control in the shape of a person sitting down. To direct air to your upper body, just hit the figure's "head;" touch the legs, and air moves to the foot-wells. Contrasting colors adorn seats and door panels, and the bucket-style front seats are very comfortable. On the downside, the manual lumbar controls are awkwardly placed and hard to operate.

Exterior   photo

Today's Volvos look nothing like the blocky models of the past. Bucking the squared edges and boxy greenhouses of other SUVs, the XC60 has a wonderfully graceful profile. Lovely in form, the 2014 Volvo XC60 is still functional. The vehicle's roof rails are low to reduce wind noise, and an optional crossbar system can be attached to carry bikes, kayaks, skis and more. R-Design models have stylish 20-inch wheels that lessen the XC60's off-road abilities in favor of more pavement performance. If you regularly churn through snow or mud, we recommend the base 3.2 or T6 trim.

Notable Standard Equipment

A base 2014 Volvo XC60 comes with a 3.2-liter 6-cylinder engine, 6-speed Geartronic automatic transmission, skidplates on the front and rear, the City Safety system, a 5-year/50,000-mile warranty, complimentary factory scheduled maintenance for five years, and five years of roadside assistance. Also standard are steering-wheel-mounted audio controls, power windows, Bluetooth hands-free phone interface with audio streaming, 18-inch wheels, a 160-watt, 8-speaker sound system with CD/DVD player and HD Radio, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. Front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard on the 3.2 (AWD optional) while all T6s are all-wheel drive only.

Notable Optional Equipment

The Tech Package bundles a series of safety technologies, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning, Collision Warning, Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection and the new Road Sign Information, which "sees" important road signs approaching and displays them on the driver information screen. Other available additions to the XC60 include in-dash navigation, dual-screen rear-entertainment system, 12-speaker premium sound system, integrated rear child safety seats, panoramic roof with power sunshade, and a walnut steering wheel. The Climate Package adds heated front and rear seats, heated windshield and a heated steering wheel. New options include active HID headlights with heated washers and a Sport Package.

Under the Hood

The 2014 Volvo XC60 3.2 is powered by a modest 3.2-liter inline-6. T6 models employ a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that puts out 300 horsepower. R-Design models give a further boost to the turbo engine, raising output to 325 horsepower. All XC60 models are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission and can run on regular unleaded gasoline. Towing capacity for all models is limited to 3,300 pounds.

3.2-liter inline-6
240 horsepower @ 6,400 rpm
236 lb-ft of torque @ 3,200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 19/25 mpg (FWD), 18/24 mpg (AWD)

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6
300 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
325 lb-ft of torque @ 2,100-4,200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/23 mpg

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6
325 horsepower @ 5,400-6,500 rpm
354 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000-3,600 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/23 mpg

Pricing Notes

The 2014 Volvo XC60 3.2 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting just over $35,500, including destination charge. An XC60 T6 starts at $41,500, while a top-of-the-line T6 R-Design starts right around $46,750. When fully optioned, an R-Design model can approach $56,000. With a price range this wide, the Volvo XC60 can compete at the lower end with the Acura RDX (about $35,500) and the Infiniti QX50 (close to $35,000), and at the high end with a loaded Mercedes-Benz GLK350 and Audi Q5 3.2 (both close to $60,000). To make your best deal, be sure to check the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price, which reflects what others in your area have paid for their XC60. As for resale, we expect the 2014 Volvo XC60 to retain slightly-better-than-average values over a 5-year period, outperforming the Land Rover LR2 and Mercedes-Benz GLK350, but falling below the Audi Q5, Acura RDX and Lexus RX 350.
