Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Volvo XC60 4x4?

The XC60 faces tough competition from premium brands such as Audi and BMW while the Nissan Qashqai offers similar qualities for a lot less money.

BMW’s second-generation X3 has been around since 2010 and continues to win plaudits for its all-round capabilities. It's one of the best-driving SUVs, has a high-quality interior and is comparatively cheap to run. SE trim provides you with lots of standard equipment.

Overview

The first-gen XC60 is a family-friendly SUV that's both comfortable and well equipped.

  • Comfortable ride
  • Classy interior
  • Safe
  • Numb steering
  • Fiddly sat-nav
  • Thirsty petrol engines
