The Volvo XC60 Wins Edmunds 2019 Best Family Car Award
With a comprehensive standard safety package, a spacious comfortable interior, and a laundry list of luxurious features it’s no wonder the new Volvo XC60 has won the Edmunds 2019 Best Family Luxury Small SUV award. Edmunds didn’t just stop there though, they continued to give the XC60 high marks by placing it on several of their other best of 2019 lists. The XC60 was also named one of Edmunds’ Best Gas Mileage SUVs, the XC60 T8 was named one of Edmunds’ Best Luxury SUVs, and the XC60 Hybrid was named one of Edmunds’ Best Hybrid SUVs.
This award-winning SUV comes in three different trim levels, all of which can be paired with your choice of three different powertrains. The trim levels are called Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription, while the powertrains options are easily differentiated by their names; T5, T6, and T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid.
The base model XC60 Momentum comes substantially equipped with a number of features including a power liftgate, so you can easily load up your vehicle without having to put anything down. You can also program your power liftgate to open to a certain height which comes in handy if you park in a garage with a low roof clearance. Integrated roof rails, automatic high beams, LED headlights and taillights, 18-inch wheels, automatic wipers, tinted rear doors and cargo area windows, and a mesh front grille round out the exterior features of the XC60 Momentum.
Volvo then brings plenty of light and airiness into your XC60 Momentum with a standard power-operated panoramic moonroof. The moonroof also comes with a power-operated sunshade which reduces glare on sunny days while maintaining the airy feeling. Inside the Momentum you’ll find leatherette upholstery with heated front seats, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, 60/40 split-folding rear seat which include rear under-seat storage perfect for stowing valuables, two USB ports, smartphone integration, Bluetooth, a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system, an 8-inch driver information display, automatic dual-zone climate control, and a 10-speaker sound system.
As the sales staff of Volvo Cars of North Miami remind us, the XC60 is a Volvo so you can expect a substantial safety package to come standard across all trim levels. Every XC60 works hard to keep you and your family safe with road sign recognition, oncoming collision avoidance and mitigation with pedestrian and large animal detection, road departure mitigation, lane-keeping assist, driver attention alert, WHIPS Whiplash Protection System, hill start assist, hill descent control, a backup camera, side-impact airbags for driver and front passenger, inflatable curtain, and a four-year complimentary subscription to Volvo On Call with remote engine start.
The R-Design XC60 comes with sporty features including shift paddles mounted on the steering wheel, front seats with seat-bottom extensions, LED front fog lights, and illuminated door handles. The top tier Inscription model adds its additional chrome and wood inlays, a leather- and wood-wrapped dash, four-zone climate control, a cooled glovebox, and ambient interior lighting.
Volvo then goes on to offer several packages which include features such as heated wiper blades, navigation, a 14-speaker sound system, Volvo’s Pilot Assist, a head-up display, a 360-degree parking camera system, and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Offered exclusively for the Inscription model is a Luxury Seating package which adds premium leather upholstery and front seats with massaging funcanability and ventilation.
With a laundry list of standard and optional high-tech, luxurious, and safety features it really is no wonder the 2019 Volvo XC60 won Edmunds’ Best Luxury Small SUV award.
