The 2010 Volvo XC60 continues and advances the company's stellar reputation for safety. Everyone knows that Volvo has been making granite-solid cars for public consumption since 1927. What many fail to consider is that, after all that time, it becomes very difficult to continue to outdo your own set standards of performance - each and every year. Volvo has done it again. In fact, many agree that the new XC60 is the safest car that has ever been designed and manufactured.
Adaptive cruise control and the revolutionary in-city brake assist system, City Safety, are the two main features that are rocking the automotive world today. The 2010 XC60 is a luxury compact crossover that includes the comprehensive set of all Volvo safety features. People are thoroughly impressed with the City Safety feature. It's standard from Volvo and is designed to prevent rear-end collisions. Radar guided detectors sense the traffic ahead at speeds of 19 mph or less. If the driver is not responding in time, the XC60 actually applies its own brakes. This Volvo-first safety feature will soon be duplicated from various other prominent automakers.
The Volvo XC60 is also quite the looker. Its good looks are topped by its spacious interior and superior comfort offerings. It's also a very powerful vehicle easily capable of making you feel like you are driving something far less safe. It is offered is a singular trim: the T6 AWD. Leather upholstery, 2-zoned climate control systems, front seating that power adjusts 8 different directions, driver seat position memory, heated outside mirrors, remote keyless entry, USB port, auxiliary input jack and both frontal and rear skid plates are all standard features. Nice.
The XC60's engine is a "twin-scroll turbocharged" 3.0L 281hp 295 lb-ft I6 that is mated to the Volvo Geartronic 6-speed automatic transmission. (Whew!) It will deliver 22/15 mpg highway/city for you in optimal style. The XC60 is an All-Wheel Drive vehicle that can handle almost any terrain situation with efficient ease and confidence-instilling dependability. The Volvo Instant Traction electronic traction control system is front biased - meaning that under normal conditions, all power goes to the front wheels. In adverse or unexpected conditions, your XC60 automatically optimizes the power distribution between the front and rear wheels to maximize your safety.
The 2010 Volvo XC60 crossover SUV has a starting MSRP of $37,200. Not bad at all for what is probably the safest car in the world. Performance, handling, comfort, dependability and excellent resale values are all other great reasons to put the XC60 above competitors like the Lexus RX350 on your shopping list. Experience the differences that decades of leadership and trend-setting can make in your next vehicle. You will feel an awesome sense of wellbeing knowing that you have done the best that you could to ensure the safety of your loved ones.
