Volvo XC60 Test Drive

posted by DL Byron on March 31, 2009

We missed the test drive event in Seattle, so the dealer brought it over and said let’s go for a drive!

How could we refuse?

First impressions are striking. It’s visually impressive and the rear LED lights are a work of industrial art. You can see the Steve Mattin concepts working their way into production.

There’s so much going on with the XC60, it’s more like a technological achievement than a boring boxy wagon. I compared it to a work of architecture that you want to think about and ponder for a while to come up with various ways to explain it.

Last year we drove the XC70 and while certainly a nice car and we appreciated it, we were also underwhelmed. The XC60 has that zing. The whoa factor. Setting aside all the safety systems, the stance, motor, and lines all combined into a car that left us talking about it.
