Volvo XC60 Spotted

Spotted the Volvo XC60 at Bangalore, it just looks amazing and I do not give a second thought about its looks. Volvo XC60 is a compact crossover SUV and was first launched at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show. The stunning XC60 signals the onset of a new era of modern Scandinavian design.

I personally loved the Volvo brand for building vehicles which focused on its safety features. Volvo also leads the auto market in safety ratings on its product range.  

The XC60 includes traditional Volvo safety features including a whiplash protection system, side impact protection system, roll stability control, dynamic stability and traction control, inflatable curtain airbags, hill descent control (AWD only), collision warning with brake support, active bi-xenon lights (optional on some models), and patented front, side, and rear structures. The XC60 also introduced a new technology feature that Volvo has named City Safety (my most loved feature). City Safety collision avoidance technology is a Volvo world-first standard feature for safer urban driving. At speeds up to 30 km/h, this laser-based technology can sense if a vehicle in front within 6-8 meters is at a standstill or is moving slower. If City Safety senses an impending collision, the brakes are pre-charged to act faster on your response. And if you don't brake, City Safety automatically applies the brakes and switches off the throttle to help you avoid or mitigate a collision. City Safety is activated when you start the car, but can be switched off if you, for instance, are driving in deep snow.

The XC60 rivals with BMW X3 and the Audi Q5.

Edmunds likes the Volvo XC60, saying “These days, the manufacturer's lineup stands out not just for safety features but also for distinctive good looks and appealing performance. A perfect example is the 2011 Volvo XC60."

  1. I like Volvo and BMW brands which they mostly concentrated on safety, appearance and as well as performance together.
