With three available engines producing 300 horsepower or higher, the XC60 also manages to be one of the most powerful compact crossovers available. In R-Design trim the XC60 eeks out a 0-60 time faster than the X3 placing it fourth in the segment behind the Macan Turbo, SQ5 and Macan. TheT6 form we look at in this episode slips just behind the R-Design and BMW X3 3.0 in performance while delivering serious value. Unlike other manufacturers Volvo handles refreshed somewhat differently. Since it launched in 2009 the XC60 has received slight tweaks almost yearly and when taken as a whole they amount to a refresh 5 years later. With new engines, new transmissions, new bumpers, headlamps, hoods, wheels, seats, dashboard, infotainment systems and gauges since the vehicle launched, the XC60 manages to stay fresh in this competitive segment despite being one of the older vehicles. If you last looked at the XC60 when it launched, you'd do well to give it another look this year. Statistics powered by ChannelMeter http://channelmeter.com
