The Volvo XC60 is a dependable SUV that offers everything from lots of storage space to safety and style. Is it the right SUV for you, though? Maguire Volvo put this 2021 Volvo XC60 review together to help drivers in Ithaca, Elmira, Binghamton, and Cortland, NY, decide.

Volvo XC60 Interior Dimensions

From its leather seats to its cutting-edge infotainment system, the 2021 Volvo XC60 is one comfortable and convenient SUV. A high-tech infotainment system isn't the only thing it's equipped with, though. This stylish SUV also offers plenty of space.

Everyone from small children to tall adults will be able to stretch out, no matter where they're sitting. It also features plenty of convenient cargo room, as well as folding rear seats that can help you load even more.

  • Cargo Room Behind Row (front/rear): 63.6 cubic feet/17.8 cubic feet
  • Headroom (front/rear): 38 inches/38 inches
  • Legroom (front/rear): 41.5 inches/38 inches
  • Shoulder Room (front/rear): 58.2 inches/56.3 inches

To make the cabin feel even more spacious, a panoramic moonroof fills the interior with natural light. Additionally, a power-operated tailgate is also available to make it easier for you to pack up when you've got your hands full.

Safety Features

After you're all packed up and ready to hit the road, you'll be able to enjoy some peace of mind in the Volvo XC60. That's because it's built with a strong, energy-absorbing frame. It also features seven airbags, including a driver's knee airbag and an inflatable curtain that covers both rows of seats.

The XC60 also offers some state-of-the-art safety features that can help prevent accidents. From giving you an extra set of eyes to letting you see what's around your SUV, you'll have more awareness with the following driver-assistance technology:

  • Rear Park Assist Camera
  • Lane Keeping Aid
  • Oncoming Mitigation
  • Brakes with Hill Start Assist and Automatic Hold
  • BLIS™ bling spot information with Steer Assist and Cross Traffic Alert with auto-brake

The XC60 can even prevent minor dents and dings by parking your SUV for you. Just find a big enough space, and Park Assist Pilot can take the wheel.

Performance Specs & Capability

In addition to all its smart safety features, the 2021 Volvo XC60 is ready to keep you in control, no matter what conditions call for. While front wheel drive comes standard, all wheel drive is also available. To manage your drive, there's an 8-speed Geartronic® automatic transmission. You can also adjust to different terrains with selectable driving modes like Off Road mode and Dynamic mode.

To power this impressive SUV, you'll have a choice between a couple of dependable powertrains. First up, there's a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that gets up to 250 horsepower ad 258 lb-ft of torque. For some extra power and a more efficient drive, you can add an electric motor to the mix. This hybrid powertrain delivers up to 400 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque.

Both options are equally prepared to haul some heavy cargo too. With a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, you'll be able to tow everything from a few recreational vehicles to a boat.
