2017 Volvo XC60
2017 Volvo XC60
Production of Volvo Cars’ new Volvo XC60 (2017) mid-size SUV started today at the company’s Torslanda plant in Sweden.
The Volvo XC60 (2017) is the fourth model based on Volvo’s in-house developed SPA vehicle architecture.
New comfort and safety technology
The new Volvo XC60 (2017), one of the safest cars ever made, is fully-loaded with new technology. Steer Assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system. A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s BLIS (Blind Spot Indication System) now uses Steer Assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
Pilot Assist, Volvo’s advanced semi-autonomous driver assistance system, which takes care of steering, acceleration and braking on well-marked roads up to 130 kilometers per hour, is available in the new Volvo XC60 (2017) as an option.
The new Volvo XC60 (2017) offers Volvo’s award-winning T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range, delivering 407 hp and acceleration from 0-100 kilometers in just 5.3 seconds.
But it is not just under the hood that the new Volvo XC60 (2017) delivers healthy performance. The new CleanZone four-zone climate system removes harmful pollutants and particles from outside the cabin to deliver Scandinavian-fresh air on the inside.
Volvo Cars’ driver infotainment and connected services offer, Sensus, and the Volvo On Call app both receive a graphical update with improved usability. As in the 90 Series cars, smartphone integration with CarPlay and Android Auto is also available.
With the new Volvo XC60 (2017) now on the market and gradually becoming available for order on markets across the globe, Volvo is set for another record year of sales in 2017.
