Sleek, elegant, chic and sporty are not words you may typically associate with a 4x4 - plus you'd be extremely unlikely to use all of them simultaneously to explain exactly the  same 4x4. That is until the advent of Volvo Cars Santa Monica.

Considering bringing the pragmatic off-roader into the family leisure market, car manufacturers have striven to style it and tailor it to give  the broadest appeal, with varying degrees of success. Some try a 4x4/MPV cross, while others opt for a more laid-back SUV picture. There's even been an effort by a premium car maker at trying to flip its big SUV into a sleek sports coupe, using especially unsleek, nay, grotesque, results!

Unlike many SUVs, VOLVO handles to retain, and even improve, the svelte lines and subtle contours of its more lightweight saloon and estate brethren.  In actuality, if you lowered an XC60 to create it adopt a road-hugging position, then it would definitely appear like a somewhat rakish sports estate. Volvo calls it"emotional" styling.

Cabin Comfort

You would not accuse the VOLVO's interior of being overdone. It is modem, fresh, fashionable and, most importantly, simple. The all-anthracite lower-half cut of our evaluation case may appear dull and oppressive in some cars, but using more to lift it than white contrast stitching and tastefully applied bright moldings, the Volvo handles an air of illusion that is smart. You'd expect nothing less from Swedish style.

undoubtedly Volvo's now well known'floating' center console, in this case having a glowing metallic finish.  It presents an array of logically-arranged and clearly-marked controls - the human-shaped air-distribution graphic being a specific case in point - that become nearly instinctive at first glance. Above the CD slot resides the clear sat-nav screen, slightly inset to reduce reflections in the window glass  located on the  same|identical} plane as the instruments where a quick glimpse enables immediate visual clarity without refocusing.

Gauges - only the two - communicate the essential details through annular analogue dials and (that word again)'floating' pointers with electronic supplementary information displayed in their facilities|centres|facilities}. They have a chronographic appearance  for  these, but Volvo has thankfully resisted the generally Far-Eastern car producers' trend to decorate them with an excessive amount of bling and elaborate illumination.

In true Volvo heritage, the chairs are well-shaped, supportive and comfortable using those in front providing a helpful assortment of adjustment. The rear compartment boasts sensible should not commodious legroom, and the nicely contoured seat should provide three teenaged adults with comfy but comfortable traveling. chair provides a flat load floor once the one-touch release levers are operated.

Zoned climate controller gives a degree (actually, a number of levels ) of heating/cooling versatility and clean cabin air utilizing filtration and Volvo's sterile Zone Interior Package, an advanced air-purging system.

Driving Dynamics

motors create lots of sense, being as responsive as a'four' however nearly as smooth as a'six','' even though the smoothness bit is not as apparent using an oil burner.  Once warmed up, however, the D5 is a pleasant enough petrol, providing lively performance in concert with the smooth-shifting six-speed Geartronic transmission, and which also has Sport style and manual override.

Having initially believed the steering over-weighted, a couple miles after it seemed to feel quicker and more receptive. Speed-dependent assistance is available as an alternative, based on model, using a user-selection centre.

In normal conditions the all-wheel driveway process is front-biased, using torque re-apportioned through the computer-controlled hydraulic clutch because available traction changes. Volvo's Immediate Traction is designed to assist with standing starts. Ride is quite firm (possibly as a result of BMW X3 having an XC60 benchmark) but provides car-like cornering and handling, although well-judged initial compliance takes the sting out of several road imperfections.

The Volvo's City Safety helps avoid low-speed accidents; Collision Warning with Vehicle Brake and Adaptive Cruise Control using Distance Alert function at higher rates; BUS shows your blind areas; DAC and LDW try to stop you falling asleep or weeded out of lane; and IDIS delays phone calls while you cope with complex driving situations. These systems may be had along with Volvo's renowned safety design and engineering aided by Roll Stability Control, Hill Descent Control, Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, and Trailer Stability Assist.  Oh, also there is Park Help...

Pulling Performance

The Volvo's 90kg nose weight delivers a good margin to accommodate many appropriate caravans, and rectangular, straight-edged door mirrors provide a much better platform than most for towing mirrors.

The XC60 was shown to be lively, turning into a 0-60mph time of 14.5 minutes despite first take-off being calmed from the automatic gearbox. . Hill starts were equally as trouble-free. The costume felt quite unruffled in urban conditions, possibly as a result of confidence of City Safety, also using a 30-50mph time of 6.1 sec was seldom in danger of holding up other traffic. Normal auto mode coped well, easily discovering itself in the ideal gear at the ideal time.

The steering might sometimes feel somewhat stranger in tight, twisty metropolitan conditions but improved at higher rates to develop into smooth, responsive and true, where the Volvo sensed in full control through strings of minor-road bends. On steep descents manual gear selection may be helpful, however, the strong wheels using their respective driver- assistance systems supplied reassurance.

At motorway speeds the XC60 tracked straight and accurate, however on a very windy evaluation day some buffeting has been experienced, as was a few enforced deviation offline from big overtaking trucks and trainers.

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

Verdict

Think about the SUV as a tall, slinky, blonde Swede that'll not have a blond moment, however is quite XC.
