Review

The Volvo XC60 looks and feels classy inside, plus it's also roomy and well equipped. In short, it's a fine choice – especially in entry-level Momentum trim. The Audi Q5 is a better all-rounder, though, while the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are more fun to drive.

get the best price

Keeps the sporty looks of R Design but adds, among other things, even bigger (21in) alloy wheels, air suspension, keyless entry and a powered tailgate. It is very pricey, though.

This plug-in hybrid version blends seriously rapid acceleration (0-62mph 5.5sec) with a pure electric range of around 20 miles. Thanks to its low CO2 emissions, it's a great choice if you're a company car driver, but if you're writing the cheque it's very expensive.
