Volvo Unveils XC60 SUV In The Geneva Motor Show

Today, Volvo has revealed its new five-seater XC60 SUV at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and it is said to sit next to the full-size XC90. The second-generation SUV shares the platform as well as the stylish design with its larger sibling. However, Volvo is proud to present and give emphasize that the new XC60 SUV is more than just a scaled-down version of its flagship vehicle.

Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo’s vice president of design, told AutoExpress that he is relaxed about the coming out of the Volvo XC60 SUV because not like the XC90, its release is not "such a revolution." The new SUV has a certain family resemblance to the existing XC90, especially the inside looks and features. Its dashboard, seats, as well as the upholstery, will all be familiar to Volvo's XC90 owners. Also, it will have the same 8.0-inch touchscreen and a digital dial feature with a 12.3-inch display.

According to Cars.com, Volvo is promoting the XC60 SUV at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show as "one of the safest cars ever made" by the company. This is made possible by the new safety and convenience technology such as Steer Assist. This feature is said to be the latest addition to Volvo's City Safety suite.

Volvo XC60's assisted steering capacity is used by the Oncoming Lane Mitigation system and by the blind spot monitoring system in order to reduce the risk of accidents such as lane-changing collisions. Furthermore, Volvo's semi-autonomous assistance system, the optional Pilot Assist, is able to steer and brake on well-marked streets at speeds of up to 80 mph. The 2017 Volvo XC60 version ranges from $41,945 up to $51,995. The price will depend if the vehicle is the base model or the T6 R-Design trim.
