BOTTOM LINE

What’s remarkable about the XC60, be it the T6 or T8, isn’t its impressive performance nor its unparalleled Scandinavian cool nor its superb set of driver assistance and safety features. What’s remarkable about the XC60 is that it does all this and more at a price point where alternatives such as the Porsche Macan or Audi SQ5 are merely starting out.

If you are considering an XC60 – or any Volvo for that matter – please take the opportunity to do what every prospective Volvo owner should experience: factory delivery, which Volvo calls Overseas Delivery and entails a trip to Gothenburg, Sweden, to pick up the car.
