First Drive: 2017 Volvo XC60 T5 AWD

2017 volvo xc60

It may be overdue for a redesign and refresh, but the Volvo XC60 is still one capable compact SUV. We recently had the opportunity to spend some time behind the wheel of a 2017 Volvo XC60 T5 AWD, and came away largely impressed, despite the formidable competition in the compact SUV segment.

Part of that appeal is the XC60’s turbocharged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine, which sports 240hp and gives the XC60 we’re driving plenty of power for merging and passing. The interior is stylish and sparse, and has had more than one passenger remark about how IKEA-esque the interior design is. (Which isn’t a bad thing in our book.)

We’re putting the Volvo through it’s paces now, so look for a full review in the next week here on Driveline Blog.
