The Top Gear car review:Volvo XC60
For:Exceptional refinement, Scandinavian style, family-friendly packaging
Against:Some of the diesels are expensive to run, it's not much fun
What is it?
A hoicked-up, poshed-up family car loaded with safety kit to protect you and the little ’uns. Volvo has always done the family thing well but takes those qualities into the compact SUV sector with the XC60. And it’s a good one, with classy styling inside and out, and refined road manners. It’s easily a rival for the Land Rover Freelander… until things turn boggy, when the LR kicks its butt. To counter this, Volvo has facelifted it, bringing in neater looks and better engines.
