2017 Volvo XC60 represents the highest comfort standards

By

The new crossovers manufactured by Volvo will now become even more stylish and elegant, both in terms of the appearance of the car and its specifications. You can recognize the new 2017 Volvo XC60 not only by the branded badge on the bumper, but also by several unique external characteristics that will distinguish the crossover from its closest competitors.

In addition, the manufacturer has put an emphasis on updates relating to the datasheet. Now the crossover will not only amaze with its power and unimpeded passage over rough terrain, but also the highest standards in comfort and safety.

2017 Volvo XC60 interior luxury

Inside the car it looks quite sporty, which is exactly the effect sought by its creators. The impression of being “sporty” is created in the first place by seats with strong lateral supports and original headrests, whose shape clearly hints at belonging to the sports car class. The control panel and an extremely comfortable steering wheel have a stylish design. The driver can enjoy the large touch panel that also displays the controls of additional functions of the car.

In addition to this there is an abundance of leather in the interior, the color of which customers can choose at their own discretion. The second row comfortably accommodates three passengers, and if necessary the middle section can be removed and can serve as a wide armrest. Each passenger is provided with a safety belt.

2017 Volvo XC60 restyling

The developers of the new crossover approached very seriously the upgrade to the external appearance of crossover. That’s why we can see in photos of the 2017 model year Volvo XC60 completely new accents in the design of the body.

These include, primarily, updates at the front of the car. This is a new-style grille, which, as expected, is the signature Volvo icon. The grille is generously decorated with chrome.

The headlight optics are of a quite unusual type. Here the designers at Volvo, have tried as always to ensure that the car from the Swedish manufacturer could be recognized from afar. The slanted shape of the headlights simultaneously speaks about the aggressive crossover on the road and about its belonging to luxury.

The fog lights are made in a quite unusual way – instead of the usual round shape, on this model they are oblong. However they are fairly bright.

The abundance of chrome trimming can be seen at the front of the car, as well as in its profile, on all the spectacular shiny sills, the edging on the side of the windows and the door handles. In addition, the car is quite smooth and a beautiful punch that adds even more presentable. It is worth mentioning the 20’’ shiny rims.

The rear of the crossover looks very impressive. There are new rear lights and a fairly aggressive form of the door of the luggage compartment, as well as a brilliant bezel at the bottom. In addition, it is quite impressive to look at the large chrome-plated letters of the name of the brand.

2017 Volvo XC60 engine and specifications

At the moment not much is known about the technical characteristics of the new crossover from Volvo. However, consumers can already count on the presence of the following innovations in its new generation:

The two-liter petrol powertrain will produce as much as 360 HP. Thus, the buyer can choose between a four- and a five-cylinder petrol engine.

The chassis will be a little stiffer but the comfort level of the ride does not decrease. The torque will be 400 N. m., while the developers claim that fuel consumption by having the new engine will be about 33 mpg.
