Probably things like comfort, style, performance, safety and practicality. You get all those and more with the 2022 Volvo XC60. The XC60 is loaded with high-tech features, amenities and more than enough power to deliver thrilling performance.

Volvo's goal is excellence, and the XC60 features a whole list of brand-new features, including:

  • Brake-by-wire system that maximizes the effect of regenerative braking
  • Adaptive suspension damping, adjusting the suspension in real time to adapt to road conditions and maintain ride height 
  • Heated grill logo, preventing ice buildup that could affect sensors housed there
  • Completely Google-based infotainment and navigation system with 9-inch touchscreen
  • High end Bowers & Wilkins audio system
  • Enhanced sensor system for driver-assistance technologies
  • Refreshed exterior styling
  • New options in paint and wheels

Interior Features and Safety

The Volvo name has always been synonymous with safety, and the 2022 XC60 features a whole driver assistance package that includes lane departure alerts, blind spot alerts, pre-collision braking, a heads-up display and voice-activated technology for phone calls and infotainment.


The new XC60 also features an advanced air purification filter that eliminates 95% of particles entering the cabin, letting you and your passengers enjoy better, healthier air quality no matter what the conditions outside the vehicle.


Engine and Drivetrain

The XC60 is powered by a 2.0L 4-cyl engine that puts out 247 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque in base form. Options include a turbocharged/supercharged version (the B5) that registers 295 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, or a plug-in hybrid variant (the T8) that's rated at 400 horsepower or 415 horsepower in Polestar Engineered trim.


The XC60 features an eight-speed automatic transmission and is available with either front-wheel-drive (FWD) or all-wheel-drive (AWD) configurations. The XC60 is a mild hybrid that's designed with regenerative braking, harvesting the energy from braking effort and using it to replenish the 48v battery. It's also available as a plug-in hybrid, with 19 miles of range in pure-electric form.

Fuel Economy

The 2022 XC60 can boast of a jump in fuel economy over the 2021 model; in FWD form, the XC60 turns in 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway. With an AWD model, you can expect 22/28 mpg for the B5 and 21/27 mpg for the B6.
