2017 Volvo XC60 Overview
The 2017 Volvo XC60 has seen a couple updates that will make things simpler for drivers and will keep the vehicle competitive in the compact SUV segment. Rather than the confusing 12 trim options that were previously listed, the XC60 is now presented in just three trim levels: Dynamic, Inscription, and R-Design.
What’s New for the 2017 Volvo XC60?
For the 2017 model year, the XC60 trim levels are simplified, making it easier for drivers to choose the best option for them. All trim levels also have the availability to add all-wheel drive, which was not previously offered on the XC60. Additionally, the previous 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine has been replaced by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.
