Image gallery: India-bound 2017 Volvo XC60

30 May 2017 / 0

The Volvo XC60 was first revealed to the public at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show and it is a very important model for the Swedish carmaker. It accounts for almost 30 per cent of all vehicle sales for Volvo and more importantly, it’s their biggest selling model. The new XC60, expected to compete with the Audi Q5, BMW X3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLC, is a mid-size luxury SUV that is based on the SPA platform just like all of Volvo’s recent products. But the extra high-strength steels bring weight savings while the D5 diesel in its turbocharged 235PS avatar brings the power for the Indian market.

Volvo India is yet to decide on the petrol option but it is clear that the XC60 will not go into CKD production like the XC90. The XC60 will come to India in the all-wheel drive, automatic configuration in the high-end Inscription trim which includes almost everything you can think more. More to the fore, Volvo does have permissions to activate the radar hardware on the XC60 in India which means all of the safety systems will be active on the XC60 in India. With prices expected to fall into the Rs 55-60 lakh range, according to Volvo, the XC60 is expected to give a massive boost to the success story that has been Volvo in the past couple of years in India.
