New Volvo XC60: Elegant and Versatile Luxury Crossover in Shelburne

With its premium accommodations, engaging performance, and advanced amenities, the Volvo XC60 showcases luxury SUV excellence. It's roomy and versatile while remaining nimble and fun to drive. Plus, with Volvo's signature Scandinavian design and craftsmanship on full display, it's one of the most appealing luxury options in the competitive compact crossover class. And drivers from Shelburne to Plattsburgh can explore the new Volvo XC60 right here at Almartin Volvo Cars.


The Volvo XC60 offers three responsive and efficient powertrain options, each with some form of electrified assistance. B5 and B6 variants feature a 48-volt mild-hybrid system that captures energy via regenerative braking and uses it to assist the engine in high-load situations like ignition and stop-starts. The result is reduced fuel consumption, lower emissions, and smoother acceleration.

The XC60 B5 is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine (247 horsepower, 258 pound-feet of torque) paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The available B6 powertrain adds a supercharger and standard AWD to the mix, increasing output to 295 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.

Volvo XC60 Recharge

Efficiency and engagement don't have to be mutually exclusive, and Volvo XC60 Recharge has the proof. This potent plug-in hybrid combines the B6's twincharged 2.0-liter engine with a larger electric motor (combined 400 hp, 472 lb-ft) and an 11.6-kWh battery that provides an EPA-estimated 19 miles of pure-electric, emissions-free range. The battery can be fully recharged overnight (~6-8 hours) with a standard three-prong household-style power outlet or in just 2.5 hours with Level 2 (240-volt) equipment.

Design and Accommodation

The XC60's handsome exterior is eye-catching without being overdone, exhibiting a minimalist-inspired style that perfectly demonstrates Volvo's Scandinavian design language. The executive aesthetic continues into a roomy and refined cabin with attractive, modern design details, premium materials, and well-integrated tech. And passengers will enjoy plenty of headroom and legroom throughout the interior, plus well-cushioned and supportive seats for long-distance comfort.

The Volvo XC60 reserves 30 cubic feet for cargo behind the second row. And when your Essex errands require more storage space, the rear seats fold easily for up to 65 cubic feet of max capacity.

Technology and Safety

The Volvo XC60's 9.0-inch vertical touchscreen is powered by Android Automotive OS, an innovative in-car operating system with abundant configuration options and intuitive controls. Google Assistant allows drivers to safely access cabin controls and infotainment features using intuitive "Hey, Google" voice commands, and over-the-air capability ensures you're always up to date with the latest features. The system also provides full native support for iPhone users via integrated Apple CarPlay.

Your family's safety should never be just an option. While many luxury-class competitors reserve advanced driver aids for higher trim levels or package add-ons, the Volvo XC60 includes them as standard equipment across the lineup. Every model includes Volvo IntelliSafe technologies like:

  • City Safety Collision Mitigation with Steering Support
  • Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane Keeping Aid
  • Run-off Road Mitigation
  • Oncoming Lane Mitigation
  • Road Sign Detection
  • Driver Attention Warning

New Equipment Levels to the Volvo XC60

Implemented for 2023 are new equipment levels replacing the now-discontinued trims of Momentum, R-Design and Inscription.

As such, offered is a more streamlined approach to singling out those amenities and features most desired. Scandinavian efficiency is a premising factor.

Benefiting the Volvo XC60 and driver alike are the following equipment levels with summarized details included. Bear in mind, accoutrements are then shared while moving up the Volvo XC60 hierarchy.


Core offers standard fare for satisfying those Burlington clients with minimalistic preferences. Though by no means sparing any important detail, Core stands as the basis for what's to come in the two other equipment levels.

Key aspects to the Volvo XC60 Core are the following:

  • Google Assistant, Google Maps and Google Play are built into the cockpit and voice activated.
  • Moonroof above is panoramic with a sunshade powered.
  • The Blind-Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert assist with safe commuting.


The Volvo XC60 Plus absorbs Core equipment while adding its own flourishes to this midsized luxury SUV. While seating five, there's the tactile savoring of driftwood accents to the dashboard and center console. And Orrefors-crafted crystal adorns the gear selector knob.

Other features to the Plus variation are found below:

  • Pilot Assist is a comprehensive suite of driver-assistance functions and solutions.
  • The 360-degree camera system provides a surrounding view of things.
  • Adaptive cruise control employs sensors for keeping a safe distance from vehicles ahead.


As the name may offer, the Ultimate equipment level applied to the Volvo XC60 lends a highly outfitted specimen. Here, the most demanding and discerning of Volvo clients may appreciate the convening accoutrements.

By taking in all the features of the previous Core and Plus distinctions, there's still room for the following standard equipment:

  • Harman Kardon sound offers pristine quality to audio accompaniments.
  • Front seats are ventilated and covered over in leather.
  • The driver's head-up display provides an enhanced graphical viewpoint when navigating.
