2022 Volvo XC60 Price, Specs, Photos, And More Interesting facts

The 2022 XC60 SUV, Volvo’s best-seller, is a handsome and well-thought-out product that reflects the Swedish company’s distinctive approach to design. The XC60 has been given the Editors’ Choice award because of its sleek exterior and refined interior, both of which help it strike a fashionable pose in traffic.

An impressive plug-in hybrid powerplant is one of three available here. We think most purchasers will find the cargo room to be useful enough, albeit it falls short of the Audi Q5, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC-class. The XC60 is loaded with high-tech amenities to help you keep your cool behind the wheel, such as a 9.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 12.3-inch digital gauge display, and a slew of driver-assistance tools.

What is Coming in 2022?

This year, the XC60 no longer offers the T5 or T6 powertrains. Instead, they offer the B5 and B6 powertrains, which use a 48-volt hybrid system. The plug-in hybrid T8 powertrain remains as the top powertrain, but it now has a larger battery pack, increasing the XC60’s electric driving range to 35 miles.

In addition, the Sensus infotainment system in the XC60 is being discontinued in favor of an updated Google Android interface taken from the XC40 Recharge plug-in hybrid. The 9.0″ vertically-oriented screen remains the same, but updated software adds customization features like a voice assistant and Google Maps navigation.

Changes to the grille, bumper, and wheels, as well as the debut of Volvo’s City Weave fabric upholstery, are just some of the other modest stylistic updates for the 2022 model year. In addition to the styling refresh and the new infotainment, Volvo also says there have been upgrades to the XC60’s various radar, camera, and ultrasonic sensors that provide data for the SUV’s driver-assistance systems.

How Much Does the Volvo XC60 Cost?

Pricing for the base XC60 Momentum begins at $42,650, which is steep for a luxury small SUV. The base price of an Inscription is $50,150, while the top-of-the-line Polestar Engineered model is $69,500.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The XC60 is available with your choice of Volvo’s B5, B6, or T8 engine, each of which is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. XC60s with the base B5 badge have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a 48-volt hybrid system under the hood, good for 247 horsepower.

Similar to the B5, the B6 is propelled by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, but an additional supercharger is included to increase output. The B6 powertrain has 295 horsepower and is noticeably more powerful than the B5 powertrain used in base models, although it was slower to 60 miles per hour in our testing (6.6 seconds) than the outgoing T6 model (7.4 seconds).

The T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain in the Recharge versions takes the B6 engine and mates it with electric motors to produce 455 horsepower. While we haven’t had much time to put this vehicle through its paces, our initial experience with the T8 powertrain was very positive.

The XC60 handles curves effectively, maintains a solid connection to the road at highway speeds, and makes sharp lane changes with ease, but it won’t turn heads as a Porsche Macan would. The ride is a bit rough over bumpy roads, but it’s pleasant and relaxing on smooth ones.

Range, Charging, and Battery Life

When you upgrade to the Recharge or Polestar model, you get the T8 plug-in hybrid engine, which can go an estimated 35 miles on electric power alone. The battery of the XC60 T8 can be charged from a public charging station or a home charging station using either a 110-volt or a 220-volt outlet, and Volvo has thoughtfully included a feature that can also recharge the battery using the energy produced by the SUV’s gasoline engine.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

Front-wheel drive B5 cars, according to the EPA, should achieve 22 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the interstate. The more powerful B6 gets 21/27 mpg in the city/highway, while the plug-in hybrid T8 gets 63 MPGe.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

You can have your kladdkaka (interior design) and eat it (rich materials) with the XC60. The cabin is quiet and pleasant, and both rows of seats can easily fit an adult. We wouldn’t have expected anything less from a contemporary Volvo than the XC60’s cabin, with its simple layout and high-quality materials.

The XC60 performed in the middle of the pack in our load capacity tests, which was not unexpected given that we were able to fit 20 of our carry-on luggage in the trunk with the back seats folded down. You won’t find a lot of space for your stuff in the cabin, and the trunk’s lone bin is tiny.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Volvo’s latest Google-based software interface is preinstalled on the 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display standard on all XC60 variants. The system is highly customizable and even supports voice commands through Google Assistant. We have seen this system in the Polestar 2 electric vehicle and found it to be responsive, though its menus do require some familiarity. Bluetooth connections and a Wi-Fi hotspot supported by a 4G LTE data connection are also included as standard features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also supported.
