2017 Volvo V60 Release Date & Info

The new 2017 Volvo V60 comes in an-already populated segment, however, with its cushy and supportive seats, extensive safety features, a stylish design, a nicely balanced handling and ride quality, and efficient Drive-E powertrain, it will certainly be an appealing alternative to either small luxury crossovers or sedans. Its date of release should be expected in February next year, according to various sources we interviewed.

The Swedish automaker was re-established two years when the Volvo V60 debuted in the automotive scene. The midsize station wagon segment has long been eschewed in the U.S but despite this setback, it has always managed to serve people who find minivans and Sport Utility Vehicles bulky, boxy, or too big for their needs.

In spite of being seen as a relic of the 1950’s and 60’s, the V60 has continued to attract both admiration and skepticism alike. This, however, hasn’t prevented the V60 from establishing its position in the market as a capable and versatile station wagon. For starters, the Volvo V60 is a wagon version of the luxury-themed 2017 Volvo S60 model which is covered on a separate review.

That said, buyers should expect a praise-worthy performance, fuel-efficiency, tons of safety features, 20 cubic feet of cargo room, and plenty of Swedish styling. In fact, one of the most defining attribute of the vehicle is its sleek styling which is the first thing that will certainly take you by surprise.

Combine that with the upscale technologies and fuel-sipping engines, and you’ve got yourself something worth bragging about. EPA says we should expect about 29 mpg of combined highway/city rating. A potent 3.0L turbocharged inline-six engine good for 325 hp and 345 lbs. ft. of torque provides the inspiration needed to get behind its wheels every time you deem necessary.

Not everything is a bed of roses in the 2017 Volvo V60 so to speak. Its cargo volume in particularly gets a beating by most rivals including BMW’s own wagon. The rear seat is also tight and will be frustrating for 6-footers.

Not many choices are available on this tiny segment. But shoppers should first consider other offerings before committing to the V60. Notable alternatives include the 2017 Audi A4 Allroad, the BMW 328i xDrive, and Volvo’s own 2107 XC70.

The Swedish automaker is getting ready to output its newest 2017 Volvo XC90 vehicle. This is actually some exciting news as we were hoping as the previous model was so great and welcomed that the new version can only bring a much better and exciting new setup. The model is believed to be the best car that Volvo has ever built and as the spy pictures have shown us we are right to get excited about this new model as well.

When the model made its debut, which was in 2014, the Volvo XC90 was an exciting prospect. Volvo has always been about class, but no one has expected that they could hit the nail’s head with the hammer so hard with this model that it was an absolute and immediate success. The model was classy but a bit reserved, which is what Volvo actually prides themselves by. But in fact its swoopy design was something that made it immensely popular everywhere it went.

Well the car did incorporate a twin-engine, plug-in hybrid powertrain which in its state sounds awesome enough, so what would the 2017 version do that other ones haven’t. Well it appears that the toned down demeanor of the car is going to change a little bit and the XC90 is going to become a bit livelier with this model. This means that the newest version is going to give us a relatively new setup which is going to build on the awesomeness that the current one already has.

New 2017 Volvo XC60 – Release Date and Info

The redesigned 2017 Volvo XC60 is among the best choices for a small luxury crossover SUV especially if you fancy interior room and safety. 2017 highlights include a generous cargo space, great crash test scores, a strong and efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engines, and supportive seats. Its release date should be expected mid-2017.

Automakers that produce family vehicles can tell you how hard it is to shake a reputation marred for being boring. But guess what! Volvo has finally cracked the code with its latest release – the 2017 XC60. Consumers now have a fine and inspiring alternative. The XC60 comes with a fresh styling and a well-appointed cabin, and sleek exterior looks just to name but a few.

It’s still drives and feels like a Volvo to its core though. The changes and upgrades forthcoming serve as a freshener to the already sensible luxury crossover SUV. Indeed, it boasts of top-crash tests scores, a comprehensive feature set, and lots of interior space. 6-footers will have no reason to ditch it for another option whatsoever.

Matters beneath its hood however remain unaltered, which is really a good thing although an upgrade would have worked even better. Solid EPA ratings of about 26 mpg should be expected for the base models. However, those who opt for the AWD XC60 will find the ratings rather mediocre since they don’t come with the same engines as the FWD Drive-E T5 and T6 models.

Shopping in the segment has never been this good. There are lots of alternatives to choose from. Formidable rivals include the spacious 2017 Acura RDX, the engaging 2017 BMW X3, and the stylish 2017 Audi Q5. Others include the 2017 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class, and the 2017 Lexus Nx 200t.

Even in the face of such unforgiving competition, we still think the XC60 is an appealing choice especially if you’ve longed for a family-friendly luxury vehicle with strong safety credentials and some Swedish flare to toggle along with.
