What the Critics Say

"Borrowing interior and exterior styling cues from the larger XC90 SUV gives the XC60 a head start in the desirability department, but it backs up its premium, contemporary image with a long list of standard and optional features that elevate it above many of its rivals." -- Car and Driver

"The 2020 Volvo XC60 focuses on interior quality and ride comfort above all else. There are comfortable accommodations for adults in both rows, and this crossover has arguably the best cabin in the class. It's loaded with tech features as well" -- U.S. News & World Report
