Once known mainly for their excellent safety ratings, the Volvo brand has recently added some fresh reasons to look at its line of premium cars and crossover SUVs: style and luxury. Clean, elegant, and unmistakable Scandinavian, the latest Volvos manage to turn heads without relying on garish design elements or fussy details. They offer stunning interiors that seamlessly meld luxury, technology, and functionality.
The 2018 Volvo XC60 compact crossover, priced from $41,500, is one of the brand's freshest models after a new redesign. Like the larger XC90 crossover and S90 sedan, its variants include a plug-in hybrid called the T8, which promises to save fuel while also increasing performance. We just spent a week testing a 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 to learn more about this new luxury hybrid.
