Review

The Volvo XC60 isn't the best large SUV to drive; if you're looking for something sportier there's the Porsche Macan, while the Audi Q5 can be more comfortable. Yet the XC60 looks and feels classy inside, is roomy and well equipped, making it a very strong choice. That's especially so in good-value Momentum trim.

Trim: Inscription

Range-topping Inscription trim does bring 19in alloy wheels and an even more upmarket interior with nappa leather, ambient lighting, wood trim and fully electric seats. However, it pushes the XC60’s price into the realm of altogether bigger and better cars, such as the Land Rover Discovery and Volvo’s own flagship XC90.

Engine: 2.0 T8 390 Hybrid

This plug-in hybrid version combines batteries, an electric motor and a petrol engine to maximise efficiency and pump out a healthy 385bhp, providing rapid acceleration. On a full charge, it can officially offer up to 33.6 miles on electricity alone (we managed 22 miles) and it has the lowest CO2 emissions in the range. The T8 is most efficient in town; on the motorway, once the battery is depleted, you get around 30mpg in the real world, so high-mileage users might be better off sticking with a diesel engine.
