Volvo has come up with a new luxury crossover, the XC60 2018 version. With this supercar, the company hopes to revive its standing in the ever increasing competitive automobile market. XC60 will compete with other premium cars like the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC and Porsche Macan.

According to Car and Driver, like all the vehicles from the latest 90-series, the XC60 is built on Volvo's Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). It pushes the front wheels farther forward than before, improving the "dash-to-axle" ratio, and stretching the front end. The Volvo XC60's looks make it look like a rear-drive vehicle, equipped with classic premium-car proportions.

The new XC60 resembles its predecessor the XC90. Just like the XC90, the XC60 includes the portrait oriented center screen that runs Volvo's Sensus infotainment system and climate-control functions. The central knobs and shifter look like jewels, while the speaker grills are perforated satin aluminum.  Its interiors have been created by designer Robin Page, who previously created interiors for the British Brand Bentley.  

According to Autoblog, the XC60 is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder, a turbo and supercharged 2.0 liter T6 and a plug-in hybrid T8, which mimics the XC90. The tremendous 400 horsepower will be pushing the all-wheel drive crossover to 62 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds.

The safety section, for which Volvo is very famous, will include Volvo's City Safety system. It will consist of a new Steer Assist function, along with an Oncoming Lane Mitigation. Volvo's Pilot Assist can take over the steering, acceleration and braking duties "on well-marked roads" at speeds up to 80 miles per hour.

 Volvo XC60 2018 will go on sale later this year. It shows that design is the new way Volvo is looking. The XC60 is the latest evidence of putting responsibility into emotion, combining it compellingly into a handsome, hunky and luxurious design.
