    Luxuriously appointed, smart-looking and relaxing to drive, the new XC60 is a serious contender in its segment.

    Volvo currently imports the XC60, but given that the company’s newly started assembly operations are set up for the SPA platform, there are possibilities of a locally built car. Don’t expect this variant’s price to drop though; at Rs 55.90 lakh, the XC60 is priced competitively. You get a long list of features, a lot of which you won’t find in the competition, and the safety tech is simply miles ahead. The XC60’s design oozes class and the drive experience is nice and relaxed. Of course, it isn’t perfect. Low-speed ride could have been better and the engine isn’t the most refined either. In addition, Volvo’s sales and service network doesn’t have as wide a reach as its German competitors. But as a luxury SUV, there isn’t much more you could ask for. In areas of comfort, performance and equipment, the XC60 is the best in class.

    It stands out as a tech-laden SUV that Volvo has thrown everything it possibly can into to set a new benchmark in the class.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
