Volvo has already disclosed British prices as well as specifications for its brand new XC60 SUV – the company’s answer to the likes of the BMW X3 and Audi Q5.
Order books are currently open; the most basic D4 diesel version of the Volvo XC60 SUV in Momentum trim is worth £37,205. It’s going to be on the roads in the third quarter of this year.
That’s a brand new five-seat 4×4, sitting underneath the large XC90 in the company’s SUV line-up. The car actually shares its platform as well as much of its styling with its larger sibling, though Volvo has also worked in some individual character into the brand new vehicle.
By the Swedish marque it appears to be a part of an SUV blitz. After the release of theVolvo XC60 SUV, an even more compact XC40 is set to follow that will be built around mostly Volvo’s 40.1 Concept.
During the recent Geneva Motor Show Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo’s vice-president of design stressed that the XC60 wasn’t a car revolution, though it’s an enormous step as well as improvement with the new promising platform.
