Volvo XC60: new vs old compared
The new Volvo XC60 is a relaxing, rather than sporty, take on a prestige SUV. But how does it compare to its hugely popular predecessor?...
Volvo XC60 new vs old – interior and equipment
Volvo has traditionally offered airier-feeling interiors than its German rivals, and the new XC60 continues that tradition. True, the window line is moderatley higher now, but you still get lots of light and a good view.
The old XC60 was always one of the classier cars at its price point, and the new one moves things on again, with the materials and standard of finish absolutely first-class.
All models now get climate control, keyless start, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers and heated leather seats, so the only option you really need to add is metallic paint.
Volvo XC60 new vs old – infotainment
While the dashboard of the old XC60 was covered with buttons, most functions in the new car are controlled through a large portrait touchscreen that you swipe, pinch and scroll, as you do with an iPad.
