Volvo is in the midst of a product line makeover, and the latest subject of renovation is the 2018 Volvo XC60 crossover SUV. The last two years have seen the rebirth of the 90-series of Volvos: All new versions of XC90, S90, V90 and V90 Cross Country hit the market running, signaling great things to come. We’ve been told to expect the rest of the new 60-series vehicles to come soon, followed by the 40-series on the Compact Modular Architecture (CMA) platform next. This complete lineup flip traces back to Volvo’s sale by Ford to China’s Zhejiang Geely Holding Group in 2010, which turned Volvo, in the words of Dean Shaw, the company’s Vice President of Corporate Communications, into “a startup.” Volvo needed to rethink every aspect of every vehicle from both a design and engineering standpoint.
Let’s take a closer look at the company’s latest all-new crossover, the 2018 Volvo XC60.
