Volvo is getting serious about its business in India and has already begun assembling the XC90. It will soon be joined by the latest generation XC60 which is now available in India at Rs 55.90 lakhs. The XC60 is being offered in a single, top-of-the-line, diesel engined Inscription variant and is being brought in via the CBU route. It is Volvo’s new mid-size offering and in this fully loaded trim, it offers as much if not more as compared to its rivals. Here then, are the highs and lows of buying a new Volvo XC60.
What’s good about it?
You get a lot of car for your money’s worth; in fact, the XC60 is quite a bit more loaded up than the equivalent SUVs from Germany or the UK. What’s more, since this is a Volvo, you get a whole load of safety features and mechanisms like Auto Park and lane departure warning.
What’s bad about it?
It looks too similar to the XC90 and simply put, the XC60 is a scaled down version of the larger XC90. It even has the same silhouette and overall design. Also, there is no petrol option besides the fact that it is only offered in the top spec variant.
