The Volvo XC60 is not the best large SUV to drive; if you're looking for something sportier there's the Porsche Macan, while the Audi Q5 is more comfortable. However, being classy inside, roomy and well equipped, the Volvo is still a strong choice. Moving up the trim list can make its price less appealing, though.get the best price
Trim: R DESIGN Pro
Keeps the sporty looks of R-Design but adds even bigger (21in) alloy wheels, air suspension, a heated windscreen, a heated steering wheel, keyless entry, a powered tailgate, adaptive LED headlights and LED foglights. It is rather pricey, though, and the air suspension results in an inconsistent ride.
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.
