Hear the Volvo XC60 review on Eat Sleep Drive Repeat, the motoring podcast! Find it on Apple, Google and Spotify.

The world is in love with the SUV, and in a marketplace that’s flooded with so many options from so many manufacturers, and at so many price points, it takes something special to stand out.

In styling terms, the Volvo XC60 makes an instant impression: the dramatic rear styling includes C pillar-mounted taillights that swoop down into a strong L shape underlining the rear glass. Moving to the side, a shoulder-height crease line runs from the rear lights to midway through the rear door gives the XC60 a bit of muscle at the back, balanced perfectly with the entire shape of its glass aperture. And in front, the now familiar t-shaped headlights and strong upright grille form a surprisingly narrow front end that lightens the overall bulk of the XC. It’s undoubtedly a Volvo, with Swedish design sensibilities and a look that is sufficiently different to any of its competitors.

Powering the XC60 T5 is a 4-cylinder turbo petrol with 187kW and 350Nm, with drive to all four wheels via an 8-speed auto gearbox. The T5 has a pleasant power delivery, but it’s certainly not the Volvo T5 of old. Back then, that name was reserved for the 5-cylinder turbo, which made a beautiful noise, even if it did also provide arms full or torque steer in things like the old V50. These days, the T5 - in the case of the XC60 anyway - provides a much more well-mannered power delivery.

The ride setup features an active chassis with air suspension; in Dynamic mode, the speed-dependent power steering takes on some extra weight, while the body is lowered to make things more aerodynamically slippery. That air suspension system has a more practical use - in off road mode, it raises the car by an extra 40mm.

But if its riding high or low, on road or off, the XC60’s greatest party trick is its refinement. With a super smooth ride setup, nicely weighted steering and suspension that does a great job of soaking up bad surfaces, the mid-size Volvo keeps things calm and under control - helped by a class leading interior.

It’s not so much the design of the cabin that impresses, or the fact that it’s ergonomically very good - it’s that its completely different to anything else in its class. The materials are at least as good as anything at the price (and in some cases, better), but it all comes together in a combination of space, practicality, comfort and style. The interior delivers an interior x factor that’s difficult to define, but easy to appreciate.
