2017 Volvo XC60 Release Date – Volvo XC60 due in 2017 and our unique image shows the appearance of the stylish new Audi Q5 rival. Volvo’s relentless product offensive shows no indication of slowing down as the Swedish automobile maker has been spied putting the ending up touches to its all-new 2017 Volvo XC60. Developed to being in the middle of Volvo’s three-model SUV line-up (with an XC40 arriving later), the Audi Q5 competitor is anticipated to launch next year, with a possible debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.
Despite the fact that the prototype in our spy shot is greatly camouflaged, we know the new SUV will adopt the very best bits from the XC90 and condense them into a smaller sized, more affordable, five-seat plan.
Exterior and Interior
The 2017 Volvo XC60 still looks distinctly old-school Volvo (compared to the XC90) and that’s average in our books– not much better or even worse. We gave it a 5 for an average exterior and interior on our brand-new scale. Its wedge profile is still distinct and special, with smooth surface areas blended into some rakish angles. The beltline is swept up, and there’s unexpected freight volume inside this practical energy automobile. It’s conventional Volvo virtues dressed in more just recently obtained elegant clothes.

Inside the vehicle, the black control panel is reasonably plain– at a time when increasingly more crossover energies are adding leather, contrast stitching, metal brightwork, and other high-end accouterments. The Volvo XC60’s dashboard is businesslike and the antithesis of snazzy, someplace in between a really top quality Subaru dash and the more stark end of the German high-end cars and trucks it’s priced versus. The dash angles towards the motorist, with a large high-resolution display screen of all virtual instruments in the cluster. They’re intense, clear, and thoroughly modern. The drifting center stack stays, though for some reason the area beneath appears less obvious– maybe due to the fact that it’s no longer a novelty as it was five years ago. And for those who wish to include some heat to the interior, the optional two-tone treatment is exceptionally great, while remaining as non-garish as you ‘d get out of sensible Scandinavian designers.
Four adults will fit fine in the Volvo, with a lot of space for equipment. Its fit and finish readies in general, but once again, the interior can be a little plain looking compared to others in its class. Where the 2017 Volvo XC60 prospers is in security– standard or optional. It nearly aced both major U.S. score companies’ battery, a four-star total score for rollover safety in the federal test is its only blemish. Regardless, the XC60 is impressively geared up with blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alert, low-speed crash mitigation, a rearview electronic camera, and parking assistants. In the basic configuration, the Volvo XC60 comes with leather seats, a leather-wrapped wheel, power adjustable front seats, panoramic sunroof, 7.0-inch screen with navigation, and rear parking sensors.
Engine and Performance
Volvo’s excessive variety of powertrains has actually been pared down to two this year, which should ready news for shoppers. The problem: None really bring the XC60 to life the way we were hoping, and a disconnected transmission has us questioning who’s to blame. The 2017 Volvo XC60 gets a point for a great flight and earns a reputable 6 out of 10 on our scale. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 that makes 240 horsepower mated to an 8-speed automatic and is front-drive just. It’s an economy move on Volvo’s part and is the only design rated in the 30-mpg variety on highways. When stop/start is active, the engine sounds relatively coarse for an inline-4– we’re guessing that’s due to the direct injection– and its thrumming is completely unavoidable. The XC60’s 8-speed automated, supplied by Aisin, is eager to keep the XC60 around 1,500 rpm and can be easily caught flat-footed. In low-speed maneuvering, we have actually seen some juddering, and at high speeds, the 8-speed just complied when we matted the pedal. In brief, we think there’s room for enhancement there.
The higher-powered turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter inline-4 makes 302 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque and is available in all-wheel-drive designs. We’re not convinced that’s the response either. The XC60 still feels hamstrung by the 8-speed’s browsing, and the XC60 feels heavier than it in fact is. Only on the fastest acceleration did the transmission snap off an impressive 4 downshifts to run the engine up near its 6,000-rpm limit. The new Drive-E engine is simply much lighter than the older engines, meaning there’s now rather a distinction between the FWD variations– which feel light, better balanced, and eager to go, particularly in Sport mode– and the much heavier AWD models, which continue more intentionally. In spite of its tall percentages, the XC60 deals with well. Plus, with 9.1 inches of ground clearance and the Haldex AWD, the XC60 has the items for getting through deep snow, muddy fields, and even rutted tracks and rocky roadways.
The 2017 design year Volvo XC60 will not be seen earlier than in late 2017. Because the start of sales of the brand-new crossover is still far, its exact price is not yet understood. However, it can be presumed that the base price of the cars and truck will begin with $37,000.
