12th Dec 2017 1:03 pm

Available in one, fully-loaded trim, the SUV gets by a 235hp, 2.0-litre diesel mated to an eight-speed automatic, sending power to all four wheels.

Volvo has introduced its all-new XC60 in India at Rs 55.90 lakh (ex-showroom, India). The Swedish manufacturer will offer its new second-gen SUV in a single, fully-loaded trim – the D5 Inscription with a single powertrain. The new model is only about Rs 2 lakh more than the equivalent trim on the previous model, which was priced at Rs 53.08 lakh (ex-showroom).

The new XC60 is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 235hp and 480Nm of peak torque. The motor is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.

A 320hp T6 petrol and 407hp T8 petrol-hybrid twin-engine is also being considered for India, although there is no confirmation, as yet, of its launch.

Borrowing its styling and technology from its larger sibling, the XC90, the smaller XC60 comes equipped with a 15-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 12.3-inch instrument cluster, heated front and rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, a powered boot lid and large 19-inch alloy wheels. 

The launch version of the XC60 comes with the Tech Pack, which includes features like the air suspension, heads-up display, Nappa leather upholstery, ventilated front seats with a massage function, a 360-degree parking system and the BLIS Cross-Traffic alert system for added radar-based safety. The Tech Pack will be offered as an optional extra on the D5 Inscription trim at a later date as the launch edition is a limited run model.

The Swedish manufacturer offers four exterior paint shade options and three upholstery colours in the cabin of the new XC60.

The radar-based driver assistance systems, such as oncoming traffic mitigation, BLIS with steering assist and city safety with cross-traffic alert for junctions, from the larger SUV will also feature on the XC60. In addition, it comes with the usual long list of safety features like adaptive cruise control, pilot assist, lane assist, blind spot detection, pedestrian, cyclist and large animal detection and more.

The full-loaded variant of the Volvo compares well with its competition’s top-end variants like the Land Rover Discovery Sport (Rs 55.47 lakh), Mercedes GLC (Rs 51.73 lakh) and the BMW X3 (Rs 54.00 lakh) (all prices, ex-showroom).
