Volvo boss Fredrik Arp calls the XC60 the company’s safest car ever. From the brand that practically symbolises safety, that’s saying something.
City Safety is the centrepiece of this crossover’s safety performance. A first as a standard fitment, it avoids rear-enders by sensing that the driver hasn’t reacted and then braking the car. <> All-wheel drive is standard, and engine variants are a new turbo T6 (210 kW), two turbodiesels and, later, a petrol 2,4.
South Africans can expect to see the XC60 in 2009 after its introduction to Europe in the second half of this year.
