After all the spy shots and rumors surrounding the all-new XC60, it is reassuring to see that Volvo are sticking to the script and tossing what looks like the segment title challenger into the ring.
And this new model will be replacing Volvo’s extremely successful first-generation XC60, and which during its nine year span, became the best-selling premium compact SUV in Europe, with almost the million units sold across the globe.
We have a strong heritage in designing stylish and dynamic SUVs that offer the latest in technology. The new XC60 will be no exception. It’s the perfect car for the active lifestyle, and it represents the next step in our transformation plan,” said Volvo CEO, Hakan Samuelsson.
According to Volvo, this new XC60 is one of the safest cars ever made, fully loaded with new and clever technology such as the Steer Assist – being added to the City Safety system.
There’s also the new system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation, which uses Steer Assist in order to avoid head-on collisions.
At a same time, Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System now uses Steer Assist functionally in order to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
The new XC60 also gets Pilot Assist as the option. This, of course, is Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver-assistance system, which can steer, accelerate and brake the vehicle on well-marked roads up to 130 km/h.
Following its debut at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, this new Volvo XC60 is scheduled to go into production in mid-April at the Torslanda plant in Sweden.
