The essential FWD 2015 Volvo XC60 T5 model comes with an 8-acceleration Aisin automatic transmission, the Volvo's new Drive-E 2.0-L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine, the City Safety program and skid-plates on front and rear side. The SUV also features five years of roadside assistance and 5-year/50,000-mile warranty that includes complimentary factory scheduled maintenance for five years.

The 2016 Volvo XC60 AWD models get the turbocharged 3.0-liter 6-cylinder (T6) or the previous 2.5-liter 5-cylinder (T5), both with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
2016 Volvo XC60 Optional Equipment
Safety features top your options list, with a Tech Package deal bundling things such as Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, Adaptive Cruise Control, the brand new Road Sign Information system and Pedestrian and Cyclist Recognition. That may read important road indications approaching, displaying them on the driver-information display. They are also available for the Volvo XC60 2016: dual-display rear-entertainment program, In-dash navigation, integrated rear child safety seats, 12-speaker premium sound system, a walnut tire and panoramic roof with power sunshade. A Weather Package adds windshield and tire, heated front and rear seats, while a Sport Bundle hardens the suspension and dresses up the looks.
2016 Volvo XC60 Driving Impressions
The all-wheel-drive 2016 Volvo XC60 T5 gets 2.5-liter 5-cylinder, even though it makes the same amount of power. Although the torque steer in FWD models isn't very fun, the turbocharged and supercharged version of the 2016 Volvo XC60 T6 is better still. AWD models of the 2016 Volvo XC60 T6 get the old turbocharged inline-6 engine. While its fuel economy suffers in comparison to newer engines, this 300-horsepower power-plant can make you smile each time you need to pass somebody on the freeway. The Volvo XC60's suspension is certainly tuned with the ideal amount of bite and the steering seems good in the hands. However the suspension is intended to ensure that taking a corner briskly doesn't experience scary, but without any ride harshness.
