A beautiful, luxurious SUV in an affordable range.
Motorcity BSC, the sole distributor of Volvo in the Kingdom of Bahrain, launched the all-new Volvo XC60 at an event held at the Capital Club in Manama. The new car is a major upgrade from the highly successful previous model, which in the nine years since its launch, has sold nearly a million units globally, and today represents around 30% of Volvo’s total global sales.
The all-new XC60, which was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, banks on Volvo’s heritage of designing stylish and dynamic SUVs, with an exterior sculpted with subtle, timeless elegance and a masterful interior of well-resolved architecture, beautiful materials and the very latest technology. The interior has the airy, crisp, blond-wood feel that gives the car a tastefully luxurious quality.
Outside, a long bonnet, muscular wheel arches, and short overhangs create a sense of refined strength. The net effect is a sleeker profile. Some of the most notable improvements include a state-of-the-art infotainment system and more legroom for rear-seat passengers. This is a car that’s built for comfort and it shows, this is a very comfortable car to drive.
Turbo and Supercharged
The five-passenger compact SUV is offered in three main trim levels: Momentum, Inscription, and R-Design, which are further differentiated by two engine choices: T5 and T6. T5 is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 254 horsepower, while the T6 receives a supercharger in addition to the turbocharger for a power increase to 320 hp.
Even the base model–Momentum is well-equipped. It includes leather, a panoramic sunroof and LED taillights and headlights. The R-Design boasts of sports seats upholstered in leather and micro-suede, metal mesh interior trim, a gloss-black grille and matte silver mirror caps and window trim. The top spec model–Inscription has a hands free tailgate, driftwood interior trim and more exterior chrome.
With a turbocharged and supercharged engine, the XC60 offers performance equivalent to six and even eight-cylinder powerhouses.
The gamut of technology helps drivers navigate the world with ease and confidence. The new safety features include an updated City Safety technology with steering support which guides your car to avoid obstacles, a newly added Oncoming Lane Mitigation system that ensures drivers don’t wander out of their lane, and an optional Blind Spot Information System which will alert you if there is something in the driver’s blind spot.
In addition, you can control the XC60 from your phone with Volvo On-Call, wherever you are in the world. You can also check fuel levels, lock and unlock your car and pre-heat or cool the cabin. It’s the easy way to stay in control.
The XC60 is a car where many small but important details have been considered, and there have been serious attempts to do those little details right. The overall package is a very well-crafted and capable vehicle, well-suited for the job it will do and the people it will serve.
