    Nine years is a long time in the life cycle of any car, but that’s exactly how long Volvo took to finally replace the XC60. Why? Probably because in those nine years, the XC60 became the bestselling premium mid-sized SUV in Europe, with sales peaking in its last year! Towards the end, however, the first-gen car started to feel pretty long in the tooth, especially in the cabin that offered a button-laden dash.

    So, it was a given that the second-gen car would be significantly better, but just how much was something we saw when we drove it last year. It thoroughly impressed us with its plethora of features, luxurious interiors, immaculate finish and comfortable drive. But how would it fare in a full Autocar road test? That’s what we find out.
