When it comes to the exterior design, the 2020 Volvo XC60 will definitely continue in the same way. In terms of size, this is a typical compact crossover, with common dimensions and ride quality. Still, it is rather comfortable than athletic, which will be appreciated by many drivers for sure.

Given the model’s pretty attractive look, we are pretty sure that the 2020 Volvo XC60 will come without more important changes in this aspect.

Interior

One of the model’s strongest points is its interior. The 2020 Volvo XC60 is expected to continue with a familiar layout, which offers a lot of space, along with opened and pretty airy interior design, which leaves an impression of a much bigger cabin.

The overall quality is excellent. You will hardly find another model in the class that can match XC60’s materials, even among German competitors, such as Audi Q5, Mercedes GLC, and BMW X3. Of course, you can also count on a spectacular list of standard equipment, especially in terms of safety features, which are available even in the most basic versions.

Engines

The 2020 Volvo XC60 will continue with three familiar powertrain options in the offer. Base models will feature a quite decent 2.0-liter turbo engine that delivers around 250 horsepower.

This seems like a perfect amount of power for a daily ride, while those who prefer something more dynamic would choose an upgraded version of this engine, which comes with both turbocharger and supercharger. A total output goes up to 316 hp.

Finally, there is a hybrid powertrain, based on the same engine, with a total amount of 400 horsepower. All versions come with 8-speed automatic transmission.
