Volvo XC60 prices revealed

  • Starts at £24,750
  • Undercuts BMW X3 by £5000
  • 'Safest ever' Volvo
The Volvo XC60 will cost from £24,750 when it goes on sale this October.

That means the baby 4x4 will undercut rivals such as BMW's X3 by almost £5000.

Three engines will be available in the XC60: one petrol and two diesels. You can choose a 281bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged petrol or 161bhp or 182bhp turbodiesels. All models come with Volvo's all-wheel drive system as standard.

Volvo is billing the XC60 as the 'safest Volvo ever' and its specification can include a low-speed crash-avoidance system, lane-departure warning facility and an auto-brake system.

Three trims are available: S, SE and SE Lux. The base S trim is only available with the two diesel engines, with prices starting at £24,750. It comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, roll-stability control, climate control, cruise control, an auxiliary input on the stereo and remote audio controls.

SE starts at £26,250. In addition to the S specification, you get hill-descent control, an electric driver's seat, folding electric mirrors and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror.

SE Lux adds chronographic dials, a leather interior, oak trim, electric heated front seats, 18-inch alloy wheels, rear park-assist system and active headlamps. Prices start at £28,750.
