7 reviews of Prime Volvo Cars South Shore "Excellent Purchase Experience. Working with Cecil was a breeze and stress free. No hanging price in the whole .

Sleek, elegant, stylish and sporty are not words you may normally associate with a 4x4 - and you'd be extremely unlikely to use them all simultaneously to describe exactly the  same 4x4. That is until the Coming of Prime Volvo Cars South Shore.

Since bringing the utilitarian off-roader to the family entertainment marketplace, car manufacturers have striven to style it and tailor it to provide  the broadest appeal, together with varying levels of success. Some try a 4x4/MPV cross, but others opt for a more laidback SUV image. There's been an attempt with a premium car manufacturer at trying to turn its big SUV to a slick sports coupe, using especially unsleek, nay, grotesque, results!

Unlike many SUVs, VOLVO manages to keep, and even improve, the svelte lines and subtle shapes of its lightweight saloon and real estate brethren.  In fact, in case you lowered an XC60 to make it adopt a road-hugging stance, it would doubtless appear like a somewhat rakish sports estate. Volvo calls it"emotional" styling.

Cabin Comfort

You would not oppose the VOLVO's interior of being overdone. It's modem, fresh, fashionable and, most importantly, simple. The all-anthracite lower-half cut of our test example may appear laborious and dull in some cars, but using little more to lift it compared to white contrast stitching and environmentally implemented smart moldings, the Volvo manages a feeling of illusion that is smart. You'd expect nothing less from Swedish design.

undoubtedly Volvo's now well known'floating' center console, in this instance having a bright metallic finish.  It presents an array of logically-arranged along with clearly-marked controllers - the human-shaped air-distribution picture being a particular case in point - that become almost intuitive at first glance. Above the CD slot resides both the clear sat-nav screen, somewhat inset to cut reflections from the window glass  found on exactly  same|identical} plane as the instruments in which a fast glimpse enables immediate visual clarity with no refocusing.

Gauges - just the two - convey the crucial details through annular analogue dials and (that word again)'floating' pointers with electronic supplemental information exhibited in their facilities|centres|facilities}. They've a chronographic look  to  these, but Volvo has happily resisted the generally Far-Eastern car manufacturers' trend to beautify them with an excessive amount of bling and fancy illumination.

In true Volvo heritage, the chairs are well-shaped, supportive and comfortable using those in front offering a helpful array of adjustment. The back compartment boasts sensible if not commodious legroom, along with the well contoured seat must supply three average-sized adults with comfy but comfortable traveling. The 40:20:40 split/fold seat provides a flat load floor when the one-touch release levers are worked.

Zoned climate controller gives a level (actually, many degrees) of heating/cooling flexibility and clean cabin air utilizing filtration and Volvo's sterile Zone Interior Package, an innovative air-purging system.

Driving Dynamics

Five-cylinder engines make lots of sense, being as responsive as a'four' however almost as easy as a'six', although the smoothness bit is not as apparent using an oil burner.  Once heated up, however, the D5 is a pleasant enough petrol, providing brisk performance in concert with all the smooth-shifting six-speed Geartronic transmission, which also has Sport mode and manual override.

Having originally thought the steering over-weighted, a couple miles later it appeared to sense quicker and more reactive. Speed-dependent support is available as standard or an option, depending on model, using a user-selection facility.

In normal conditions the all-wheel drive system is front-biased, using torque re-apportioned through the computer-controlled hydraulic clutch because available traction alters. Volvo's Instant Traction is designed to assist with standing begins. Ride is very firm (possibly due to the BMW X3 being an XC60 benchmark) but provides car-like cornering and handling, although well-judged initial compliance takes the bite from many road imperfections.

The Volvo's City Safety helps avoid low-speed accidents; Collision Warning with Car Brake along with Adaptive Cruise Control using Distance Alert run at higher rates; BUS reveals that your blind spots; DAC and LDW try to prevent you falling asleep or straight from lane; along with IDIS delays phone calls while you deal with complex driving situations. programs can be obtained as well as Volvo's renowned security design and engineering aided by Roll Stability Control, Hill Descent Control, Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, along with Trailer Stability Assist.  Oh, and there's Park Assist...

Pulling Performance

fat delivers a good margin to accommodate most suitable caravans, and rectangular, straight-edged door cushions provide a much better platform than many for towing mirrors.

The XC60 was shown to be brisk, turning into a 0-60mph time of 14.5 minutes despite first take-off being calmed from the automated gearbox. . Hill begins were equally as trouble-free. The ensemble felt very unruffled in urban states, possibly due to the confidence of City Safety, and using a 30-50mph time of 6.1 sec was rarely in danger of holding traffic up. Normal auto mode coped well, smoothly locating itself in the right gear at the right moment.

The steering might occasionally feel somewhat stranger from tight, twisty urban states but improved at higher rates to develop into smooth, more responsive and true, where the Volvo felt in complete control through strings of minor-road bends. On steep descents manual gear selection may be helpful, however, the strong wheels using their various driver- support systems supplied reassurance.

In motorway speeds the XC60 tracked straight and accurate, however on a really windy test day some buffeting was seasoned, as was a enforced deviation offline from big overtaking trucks and trainers.

Ride comfort in all states was company, though rarely uncomfortably so, and also the XC60 managed to damp out the caravan's bulge reactions very efficiently above all but the worst ruts.

Verdict

Think about the SUV as a tall, slinkyblonde Swede that will never have a blond moment, however is very XC.
