2019 Volvo XC60 T5 Momentum AWD SUV Interior and Exterior Overview

Perhaps the re-introduction of a front-wheel-drive model, but little else of consequence as the newest version of Volvo’s premium compact crossover enters its sophomore season. The XC60 was fully redesigned for model-year 2018, gaining elegant new styling, a roomier and more upscale cabin, additional safety features, and a plug-in-hybrid-powertrain option. This second-generation XC60 debuted with all-wheel-drive (AWD) standard across the board. It’s 2010-2017 predecessor was available with front-wheel drive and Volvo could offer sunbelt buyers a lower price of entry for model-year 2019 by returning a front-drive edition at $2,000 or so cheaper than its AWD counterpart. Otherwise, this five-seater will return largely unaltered, again slotting into Volvo’s crossover lineup between the subcompact XC40 and midsize, seven-passenger XC90. Unless you’re in the market for a possible front-wheel-drive version, you probably shouldn’t. A front-drive model would likely save you some dough at purchase time and perhaps through slightly higher fuel economy — at some sacrifice to the all-weather security of AWD traction. Aside from that, and maybe a new paint color or two, Volvo isn’t apt to alter a formula that earned the ‘18 XC60 critical and commercial favor. The ’19 should repeat a lineup that offers three levels of trim – volume-selling Momentum, sporty R-Design, and uplevel Inscription – each available with a choice of engines ranging from 250 horsepower to 400. Every 2019 XC60 should also return with amenities such as leather upholstery and a panoramic moonroof as standard, along with a full suite of safety features, including optional semi-autonomous driving. Waiting for the ’19 XC60 would almost certainly mean paying higher asking prices for essentially an unchanged vehicle. On the upside, the ‘19’s styling and features will remain relevant at least until model-year 2021 or ’22, when the XC60 would be due a midcycle freshening. Note also that if you like the XC60’s basic design but fancy it in a sleeker form, waiting for the 2019 model year would enable you to audition the 2019 V60 Cross Country, a station-wagon-based crossover with a lower profile than the XC60. There may be a fresh color choice or two, but nothing else will change. Thanks in large measure to its new platform, today’s XC60 boasts comelier lines and more contemporary proportions than the first generation. It’s two 2 lower, but nearly 2 inches longer, more than 4 inches wider and, significantly has a 3.6-inch-longer wheelbase. Expanding that span between the front and rear axles not only helped stance and stability by pushing the wheels to the vehicle’s corners, it resulted in an additional 4.5 inches of sorely needed rear legroom, putting this Volvo among the class leaders for back-seat accommodations. Every ’19 XC60 will return with LED headlights and taillamps, the former sporting the “Thor’s Hammer” t-shaped light piping first seen on the XC90. All will also have roof rails and a power liftgate, with visual differences again running to 18-inch alloy wheels on the Momentum, 19s on the R-Design and Inscription, with sizes up to 22 inches (and summer performance tires) available as options that for 2018 cost up to $4,375. The R-Design should again be distinguished by darkened exterior details and more aggressive lower front air intakes, while the Inscription returns with more brightwork. The plug-in hybrid can also be identified by the fuel-filler-type door in its left front fender that accesses its electric-power port. Inside, all ’19 XC60s will again feature a central-dashboard infotainment touchscreen that’s oriented portrait-style. The display is 9-inches in diameter, or a generous 12.3 with the imbedded navigation system that for 2018 was optional on the Momentum and standard on the other models. Expect the return of aluminum inlays in the Momentum, metal mesh in the R-Design, and a choice of metal or classy driftwood veneer in the Inscription. The R-Design should also return with Nubuck-and-Nappa-leather upholstery and front buckets with extra bolstering. Any 2019 XC60 cabin should again present an impressive environment rich with details like diamond-faceted control knobs, colander-aluminum speaker grilles, and a crystal gearshift for the plug-in hybrid model. Absence of a central controller, however, compels you to interact with the touchscreen for virtually all navigation, audio, connectivity, and climate functions. That’s often distracting, although some functions can be governed via steering-wheel buttons or voice commands. Passenger space will remain a high point, with an especially commodious and supportive rear seat. Unfortunately, we couldn’t dial in an appropriate balance of comfort and support with the multi-adjustable front buckets available in the Inscription’s

In Depth Tour 2019 Volvo XC60 T5 R-Design AWD SUV

Buy a Volvo crossover for safety, sure, but style, performance, and premium-grade luxury? The compact 2019 XC60 makes its case What changes will make it the 2019 Volvo XC60 different? Perhaps the re-introduction of a front-wheel-drive model, but little else of consequence as the newest version of Volvo’s premium compact crossover enters its sophomore season. The XC60 was fully redesigned for model-year 2018, gaining elegant new styling, a roomier and more upscale cabin, additional safety features, and a plug-in-hybrid-powertrain option.

Otherwise, this five-seater will return largely unaltered, again slotting into Volvo’s crossover lineup between the subcompact XC40 and midsize, seven-passenger XC90. Why should I wait for the 2019? Unless you’re in the market for a possible front-wheel-drive version, you probably shouldn’t. A front-drive model would likely save you some dough at purchase time and perhaps through slightly higher fuel economy — at some sacrifice to the all-weather security of AWD traction.

Should I buy a 2018 model instead? Yes if, like the vast majority of buyers in this segment, you want your premium-compact crossover with AWD and don’t cotton to the prospect of higher prices for no real changes. The ’18 model marked the XC60’s transition to Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture. Shared with the flagship XC90, the new understructure gives it a thoroughly modern platform with which to do battle with such rivals as the Mercedes-Benz GLC, Cadillac XT5, Audi Q5, Acura RDX, and BMW X3. The ’18 XC60 trailed those competitors in sales but matched most and beat a few for looks, features, and performance.

2019 Volvo XC60 T8 eAWD Plug-In Hybrid Interior and Exterior Overview

The 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 E-AWD is a great illustration of how far we’ve come since the days of the Benz Patent Motor Car. It’s an astonishing machine that achieves these two, seemingly irreconcilable, stats: the equivalent of 59 miles per gallon and 400 horsepower. Its efficiency comes via a plug-in hybrid system with 18 miles of all-electric range, while all that muscle is generated from an electric motor working in concert with a gas engine that’s both super- and turbocharged. It sounds incredibly complex because it is, but like a Steve Jobs special, it just works, with the driver blissfully unaware of what’s making it all happen. There’s more here to marvel at, including a trick all-wheel-drive system that uses separate powertrains for each axle, and enough safety equipment to survive a nuclear blast. Perhaps the only knock against the XC60 T8 E-AWD is its relatively high price. It’s true, though, that you get what you pay for, and with Volvo’s latest, greatest iteration of the compact SUV, you’re getting an awful lot. As a luxury vehicle, the XC60’s relatively high base price of $41,500 should not shock you. This isn’t a Mitsubishi, after all. Even still, can the $71,590 as-tested price of this XC60 T8 E-AWD Inscription be justified? In a word, yes. For one, Volvo now fully competes on the same level as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, all of which offer luxury compact SUVs that can reach this stratospheric range of pricing. Second, the XC60 T8 E-AWD Inscription is a technological tour de force, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powerhouse that can be gliding on electrons one minute and embarrassing Mustangs the next. If you have the money, it’s worth every penny of it. Since it’s got a plug, the XC60 T8 E-AWD is also eligible for a federal tax credit of $5,002 and may be eligible for more state and local credits depending on where you live. The XC60 has been completely redesigned, and where the last generation was all curves and bends, the new one adds sharper character lines and a smattering of creases. Still instantly recognizable as a Volvo, the new look was inspired by the XC60’s big brother, the XC90, and it very clearly works at 4:5 scale. The XC60’s interior is a palace of Scandinavian design and exotic (at least for a car) materials. The components of its construction include Nappa leather, real metal, “Driftwood deco” accents with natural texture, and even crystal from Swedish firm Orrefors in the gearshift lever. As for the most common element in cars today – plastic – there are only trace amounts of it to see and feel in the XC60’s interior. The XC60’s accommodations for passengers and cargo also do not suffer from the addition of a 10.4-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Indeed, head and legroom are very good for both front and rear passengers, and the cargo area is every bit as plentiful as the space inside non-plug-in competitors. The XC60’s optional $1,800 air suspension can also perform a trick to aid loading: press a button on the wall of the cargo area and the rear end drops half a foot. Lastly, as a plug-in hybrid, the XC60 T8 E-AWD offers a completely serene driving experience while operating in pure battery mode; it can go up to 18 miles on a full charge. There’s no noise and no vibrations – just silent propulsion. When that’s expended, Volvo’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s both supercharged and turbocharged comes alive. At this point, engine noise does become apparent and the volume is higher than traditional four-cylinder engines in some competitors, but it’s still well within the range of acceptable.
