The XC60 is one of Volvo’s most important models. The compact SUV accounts for a lot of the brand’s sales and is offered in three trim levels: the B5, B6, and Recharge. All three models use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with various levels of turbocharging, supercharging, and hybrid boost.

The top Recharge model makes an impressive 455 hp and 523 lb-ft of torque; numbers not found amongst many compact luxury SUVs.


Engine Performance, Ride/Handling Balance, Bowers & Wilkins Audio System


Lack of Hard Buttons, B Pillar Blindspot, Wind Noise

Bottom Line

Not an ordinary everyday SUV, it’s something more. Just the way Volvo likes it.

2022 Volvo XC60 B6 AWD Review: Doing Things Differently

Volvo marches to the beat of its own drum.

The brand doesn’t care what the rest of the industry is doing. Conformity isn’t in the Swedish manufacturer’s vocabulary. Volvo is going to do things the Volvo way; there is no compromising. The 2022 Volvo XC60 B6 AWD is a prime example of this.

The ignition switch? It’s a spring-loaded dial on the center console that is twisted to the right to turn the engine on and off. The key fob, like most in the industry, is a flat rectangular piece of plastic. But instead of the lock/unlock buttons being on the top and bottom, it is completed blank. These functions are controlled by little buttons the thin side of the fob, like a smartphone.

And then there is the engine. When presented with the choice between turbocharging or supercharging the brand’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit, Volvo simply responded with yes. That’s right, a turbocharger and a supercharger have been applied to receive the best of both worlds, the instantaneous low-end grunt from the supercharger and the high-end power from the turbocharger.

Volvo XC60 Vs Volvo XC90: Which Volvo SUV Is Right For You?

It can be argued that no automotive brand in the North American market has evolved in the past 30 years as much as Volvo.

In the early 1990s, the bestselling Volvo models were clunky, brick-shaped sedans and wagons with cabins that were mostly lined with rubber-coated foam. The basic shape of their cars remained unchanged from the 1960s into the 1990s and during those years, the brand was best-known for its drab design and incredible durability.

Fortunately, the Volvo brand today is nothing like the company from the 1990s, showcasing cutting-edge technology inside and out, with premium appointments and a sleek, elegant design. Today’s Volvo lineup is filled with proper luxury models, including sedans, wagons, and SUVs. Two of the most popular modern Volvos are the XC60 and the XC90, with these two roomy SUVs showcasing everything that the brand has to offer. These two models offer all of the premium features that you expect from a luxury SUV, but they cost quite a bit less than the competitors.
