If you are in the market for a new SUV, you have two great options. Consider going with the Volvo XC60 or the Volvo XC90. One is a compact SUV, while the other is a midsize option. Check out the features to see which one of the Volvo SUVs is the right choice for you. Then, get ready to drive off in luxury.
Volvo XC60 – Proof that Great Things Come in Compact Packages
Compact comfort is the name of the game for the Volvo XC60. The seats are incredibly comfortable regardless of how far you travel, and the integrated booster seats make it much easier for families to take road trips. If you get these optional seats, you can pop them up when you need them. Since they are dual-stage booster seats, they accommodate kids of different sizes.
The XC60’s engine also stands out. It might be a 4-cylinder, but it has a quiet power that you will love when you’re driving. This 4-cylinder has enough get-up-and-go to produce 240 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque for the base T5 model. It also has a momentary overboost feature that adds some extra torque for short periods of time. If you want even more power, you can go with the T5 or R-design models. These have even more horsepower so you can be the master of the roads when you drive.
These engines might be powerful, but they are still efficient. The T5 gets 26 mpg combined, while the T6 gets 22 mpg. With efficiency like that, you can tackle that big road trip you’ve been putting off.
Volvo XC90 – Big and Bold
The Volvo XC90 is a midsize three-row luxury SUV. It might be part of a crowded class, but it stands out due to its spacious seating and tons of standard safety features. The T5 model has a turbocharged engine that gets 250 horsepower and 258 pounds-feet of torque and clocks in with an estimated 24 mpg.
Those specs look great, but it’s the XC90 Plug-In Hybrid that gets most of the press. It uses an engine and an electric motor. You can switch modes with this vehicle. If you go with the hybrid mode, you will get 54 MPGe on the highway, and 53 MPGe in the city. You can also take short commutes using only electricity.
All the models really shine when it comes to safety features. Features like the frontal collisions warning system and Run-Off Road Protection keep you safe on the road. In fact, Run-Off Road Protection is one of the most innovative safety features of late. It engages various safety features if you run off the road.
Both of these Volvo SUVs are great pieces of machinery and worth seeing in person. Visit Berglund Group Roanoke-Volvo in Roanoke, Virginia, and check these SUVs out today.
