Look at all the news about Real Cars You
Can Actually Buy we’re bringing you today. Three-door Ibizas, Vauxhall Vectras (sorry, Insignias) and now prices for the Volvo XC60…

Unveiled in Geneva earlier this year, the
XC60 is Volvo’s new five-seat crossover - a little brother to the XC90 in
similar vein to the Ford Kuga, VW Tiguan and the rest of the softroad crowd.

It’ll go on sale in the UK this October
with prices starting at £24,750, which means it’s well north of the Kuga and
Tiguan and instead lining squarely up to the Land Rover Freelander. Brave
territory indeed.

You do get plenty of Clever Stuff for your
cash, though, including Volvo’s City Safety system - an automatic braking
feature which helps to avoid collisions.

The XC60 will be available with the choice
of a two five-cylinder turbodiesels developing 185bhp or 163bhp, or a ‘T6’
turbocharged petrol engine putting out 281bhp.

Top-spec versions will even come with
compasses. The pointy-directional sort rather than the pointy-circle-drawing
 sort.

See, check
out us doing proper car news. Tomorrow, we bring you news on the best
fourth-hand CityRover bargains and exciting new innovations in the world of
 floormats.
