All-New 2018 Volvo XC60 Model Overview in Cincinnati Ohio

Reimagined and Redesigned for 2018

A top choice among midsize SUV buyers, the All-New Volvo XC60 returns for 2018 with a total redesign. The XC60 features distinctive Thor's Hammer sideways-T shaped LED headlights, bold upright grille, and an elegantly raked windshield -- taking design cues from the award winning XC90. The captivating looks of the All-New 2018 Volvo XC60 are shaped from Scandinavian design.

The All-New 2018 Volvo XC60 builds upon the current XC60, with greater emphasis placed on a sleeker profile and improved driving dynamics. Wheelbase length has been lengthened by 3.6 inches, resulting in an overall increase in length by 1.8 inches. This length increase has expanded the rear-seat dimensions, resulting in a more spacious interior for passengers. Ride height has been lowered by 2.1 inches in an effort to provide the XC60 with a firmly planted stance on the road versus the outgoing model.
