    My car

    I have owned Volvo cars now for the last 15 years, and having just taken delivery of the 2015 XC60 - this has to be the best I have driven yet. I chose the SE D4 front wheel drive, as it gives the best fuel economy and emission control, without compromising on the performance. The Sensus Connect system works well, and when paired with the Premium Sound system (Harman Karmon)it provides a mind-blowing music system which can also access internet radio stations and more. The seats are very comfortable, with an electric operated lumbar support adjustment as standard. The dashboard layout is modern looking and slick. It is a shame that the rear seats no longer have a centre fold-down section with cupholders as standard (these are now in the door pockets) but overall the quality of the interior is superb. The flexibility of the rear luggage storage space is excellent, the rear seats fold down flat in a 40/20/40 pattern, likewise with the front passenger seat. Well done Volvo, your car re-designs over recent years has worked well with the XC60 and others.

    My car

    I've just purchased my first XC60 R Design 2.0 D4 and I love it - it is latest 2015 version with the increase efficiency and slightly higher BHP. I've only had it 10 days but I love it!! I previously had a Jaguar XF and in my opinion it beats it hands down and I never thought I'd say that. I suffer from a bad back and having completed a 5 hour drive in the XC60 it didn't hurt at all unlike in the XF. I can't really comment of economy just yet but my first tank averaged 50 mpg which was made up of 220 mile long trip and approximately 400 very short to mid range trips - I expect this to increase as the car breaks in (or so I'm told). The cabin is very good and many friends have commented on how spacious it feels. Regarding the size it looks far bigger on the outside then it feels when driving - even my wife isn't afraid to drive and it she is terrible at just the thought of drive a car this size. Only rated 4 stars on ownership because I haven't had it long enough to warrant giving it 5. Performance - it can shift when needed and I'm surprised at the power but if honest I haven't really gone to town on it because I love relaxing in it and taking my time - getting old!! Overall I am very pleased with the car and am constantly looking for excuses to go for a drive. The only thing I wish I had chosen has an option was the bigger screen. The TFT display is a must and glad I paid the extra for this.

    My car

    I have had a 7 day test drive of the XC60 D4 AWD Auto R-Design Lux Nav with upgraded Alloys during which I covered over 1000 miles. This waqs a truly excellent vehicle which surprised and deelighted myself and the family. Space for 4 large adults no problem with good boot space and other storage. Easy to drive and D4 engine coupled with auto box was excellent also. Engine pulled well and coped with the Northumberland hills and scottish highlands without problem. Cabin very solid and all the toys you would expect on this spec. The cabin was sharp with the R-design trim lifting the interior - Part Leather Sports Seats are the best of any crossover vehicle I've tested. 4x4 was ok off-road for a crossover and good on country tracks but better on tarmac surfaces and motorways. The XC60 also coped well with a range of roads and cornered as well as the Mazda, and much better than the Tiguan, Honda, QashQai, etc. over a variety of road types. Sat Nav easy to use but map of Northumberland again needs updating (a common fault on Sat Navs). Blu Tooth was easy to set up and operate and calls were quite clear. Road noise acceptable even at speed. Steering was accurate and light around town when parking. Fuel economy was circa 30 on the daily commute but around 40 on runs out but I was driving carefully

    My car

    Great looking inside & out. Good performance & economy. Very roomy & practical. Now for the bad bits, worse car I've ever had for ride comfort; unless the road is smooth it picks up every single undulation, pot hole & imperfection going. I live in the countryside & have to drive over some pretty poor surfaces - it just becomes very tedious after a while having ones head tossed about. One thing I have learnt form this is; always test drive a vehicle over your own patch. Auto gearbox is sluggish, engine noisy (to be fair; I would have put up with it). Poor instruments; grey on grey for goodness sake! Appalling electronic parking brake positioned on right of steering wheel & counter-intuitive; push to engage. Everybody else pulls up for parking. Small fiddly buttons on centre consul & also on right of s/wheel you cant see. Then there was the factory fitted tyres, a summer spec that was useless in the cold icy weather & gave a hard ride. Why not all season tyres Volvo not everybody wants to go to the expense of a set of winter tyres? Just not good enough. I've now got so fed up with the ride that the car has been sold on after just 3 months.
