Pros

The 2015 Volvo XC60 offers safety and exclusivity to the premium luxury SUV buyer. If those are the reasons you're looking to step up into the luxury end of the market, you'll be hard-pressed to do better than this Volvo.

Cons

While the new Drive-E engines are very fuel efficient, they're only available in front-wheel-drive (FWD) models, leaving the all-wheel-drive (AWD) economy crown to the Audi Q5 and Mercedes-Benz GLK diesels.

What's New For 2015

After a major restyling last year, the 2015 Volvo XC60 is almost entirely carryover, with the exception of the new Drive-E engine family. Available on FWD models, the engine comes in two flavors: a 240-horsepower turbocharged version, or a 302-hp turbocharged and supercharged model.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Expert Review

The 2015 Volvo XC60 is in a tough competitive field. It has to deliver luxury like the Lexus RX, offer the power of the agile BMW X3 and Audi Q5, but be priced like the Acura RDX. Somehow, this Volvo delivers, and then the XC60 tosses in a big dose of styling, safety and individualism. This year, Volvo is introducing its all-new engine lineup to the XC60. Known as Drive-E, these engines will eventually replace the 5- and 6-cylinder engines in Volvo models across the board, offering the same or better performance, but with better fuel economy. Throw in the XC60's perfect 5-star crash-test ratings, an achievement no other SUV in this class can match, and the XC60 trumps any of its competitors for buyers who have children.

Driving the Used 2015 Volvo XC60

The new Drive-E engines liven up the FWD models of the 2015 Volvo XC60 considerably. Although the Drive-E T5 offers the same 240 horsepower as the previous 3.2-liter inline-6, the XC60 is notably quicker, accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in just under 7 seconds, rather than the 9-second time of the previous vehicle. It's even better with the turbocharged and supercharged Drive-E T6, which gets to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. A downside is that the Drive-E T6 also suffers from torque steer at full throttle, and the squirming steering wheel is nobody's idea of fun. Still, there's a lot to like from behind the wheel of the XC60. If you opt for an AWD model, we strongly suggest skipping the 3.2-liter engine and springing for the turbocharged T6; you'll thank us every time you pass someone on the freeway.

Favorite Features

DRIVE-E
The Drive-E engines in the 2015 Volvo XC60 are the real deal. Fuel economy jumps from 18 mpg in the city to 24 mpg, and the XC60 is more than 2 seconds quicker to 60 mph, too. And that's for the T5; the T6 is even quicker, and still gets better economy.

CITY SAFE
This system provides a technological safety net for distracted drivers. At speeds of 19 mph or below, the system senses stopped or slow-moving objects ahead – other cars or pedestrians – and automatically applies the brakes if the driver does not, avoiding or reducing the severity of accidents.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Interior

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.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Exterior

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 2015 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 models.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Standard Features

Base FWD 2015 Volvo XC60 T5 models come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, an 8-speed Aisin 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. FWD is standard. AWD models receive either the old 3.2-liter 6-cylinder or the turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder, both connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Options

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. Options also include active HID headlights with heated washers and a Sport Package.

Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Engine

The big news for the 2015 Volvo XC60 is the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder Drive-E engine family. Front-wheel-drive models get the 240-hp turbocharged T5, or starting in May 2014, the 302-hp turbo- and supercharged T6; both come with an 8-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive models still use the modest 3.2-liter inline-6, or the more powerful 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. AWD 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.

2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 (FWD only)
240 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
258 lb-ft of torque @ 1,500-4,800 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 24/31 mpg

2.0-liter turbocharged and supercharged inline-4 (FWD only)
302 horsepower @ 5,700 rpm
295 lb-ft of torque @ 2,100-4,500 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 22/30 mpg

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

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 (AWD only)
300 horsepower @ 5,600 rpm
325 lb-ft of torque @ 2,100-4,200 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/24 mpg

3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 (AWD only)

354 lb-ft of torque @ 3,000-3,600 rpm
EPA city/highway fuel economy: 17/24 mpg

How Much Does the Used 2015 Volvo XC60 Cost?

The FWD 2015 Volvo XC60 T5 has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at a bit over $36,500; a FWD XC60 T6 starts at just under $41,500. The base AWD Volvo XC60 3.2 starts off at a little more than $38,000. You'll pay about $42,475 for the AWD T6, and nearly $47,000 for the T6 R-Design; that price easily climbs to $57,000 with options. With such a wide-ranging price structure, the Volvo XC60 competes 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 the 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 2015 Volvo XC60 to retain slightly-better-than-average values, outperforming the Land Rover LR2 and Mercedes-Benz GLK350, but falling below the Audi Q5, Acura RDX and Lexus RX 350.

"Great long-term car"

Practical, Cheap to run, Comfortable, Luxurious
Small back seat, tech is slightly behind-the-times
I love my XC60 because my previous car ('11 VW Touareg TDI) was simply unreliable. Obscene repair costs, coupled with a diesel engine that ultimately resulted in a generous buyback made for an easy decision to trade it in. After much research, I ended up in my '17 XC60 for several reasons; chief among which is the low cost of operation. Midsized SUVs in this segment often run on premium fuel and still achieve underwhelming fuel economy - my car runs on regular and is averaging over 25 MPG in mostly city driving, yet can easily turn upwards of 30 MPG on longer highway stints. With high safety ratings, my insurance costs dropped as well, not to mention the fact that my particular car came with a 5-year free service contract because I was a former owner of a VW product... so I will have no out-of-pocket expenses related to my car until the early 2020s. The car is also extremely comfortable - the front seats are great, even for a tall (6'4") driver - there is ample cargo room and the audio system is extremely impressive, especially the levels of bass it can achieve. If I had to talk about a single gripe, it would be about the rear seat legroom - I sometimes have friends riding with me, and behind my seating position, it can be somewhat uncomfortable, but ultimately it is a small price (I don't even have to personally pay) to enjoy the car. I would absolutely recommend this car.Read less

"I will not get rid of this SUV"

From the tires to the rood rails all good

Real easy , I can buy any SUV I want , have thought about getting something newer . Test drove Acura , ALfa , BMW, Mercedes, the new Jeep Cherokee . Well after a month of reading reviews , you tubes , test drives I could not find a more solid , reliable , grea handling and driving SUV out there . My seat has 95000 miles on it and beats all the SUVs i test drove. I am glad i did I am keeping my 2010 XC 60 T 6 AWD I have no payment , and have just done some maintenance to her.

"Understated excellent SUV"

Build quality and comfort
Heavy, feels sluggish with spirited driving
Drove this car through 3 heavy winters in Germany and can attest to its ability, it's a durable workhorse. So far no unexpected expenses. The interior can hold up to abuse as the leather is top notch. Styling is subjective and folks either love it or hate it. I've found it to be pretty user friendly though. Overall I'm very satisfied and hope to keep it for at least 7 years. I don't worry if my wife or daughter is driving it because it's reputation for safety is well known. It's hard to put a price on peace of mind and I think that has to be the biggest difference when you decide to go with a Volvo. They build the best car to their ability not a cut rate version of what they could have made for the sake of sales. Other car makers force you to spend thousands more for a luxury option with better safety. Volvo is solo there is no Honda/Acura or Toyota/Lexus situation. I like them because the way business is conducted instills TRUST. If I get the longevity I expect to get from this one, I will absolutely purchase anotherRead less

"Solid, heavy, but expensive, avoidable repairs"

Handling, safety, torque
Reliability, maintenance
This car drives great- firm handling (probably too stiff for some). Exceptionally safe, especially with all the packages. Very comfortable seats. It is not as quiet as I expected, due to the firm ride. The navigation system is awful, I never use it. But at 80k miles, a bearing in the differential failed along with a wheel hub bearing- can be repaired if you can find the right shop (actually a Land Rover specialist, shares the drivetrain with the LR2), but otherwise Volvo wants over 3k just for the part. Maybe if you could change the sealed for life differential fluid it wouldnt have been a problem. The blower is starting to go, thats at least a 600 repair because you have to take the whole dash off to get to it. I like how safe it is and how well it drives, but the efficiency and reliability are not great for what you paid for.Read less
