For those looking for spacious interior accommodations, great crash test scores, strong and efficient turbocharged engines, and a generous cargo space, the newest Volvo XC60 seemingly appears as a top choice. Additionally, it offers comfortable and supportive seats. The Volvo XC60 release date should be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2017.
Given, the Volvo XC60 has been that vehicle that everyone looking for a stylish cabin and good looks could count on. This is true also for the 2017 year model. It’s solidly a Volvo to its core and the several updated and refreshments have only come to burnish an already sensible luxury crossover SUV.
The 2017 Volvo XC60 interior is of Scandinavian ancestry that delights in providing an inviting interior design with modern amenities. The climate control adjustments are both intuitive and simple to use thanks to the straightforward controls. The infotainment system offers smartphone app connectivity therefore making the controlling fun and easy to use.
The interior space, just like before, is spacious and provides decent leg- and headroom for its occupants. Cabin matters aside, buyers will also appreciate its driving quality. Although it’s a shame not to get the engines available with an AWD system, they provide a respectable fuel economy rating and good fuel efficiency. Pairing for all the engines offered is done by the smooth eight-speed automatic.
Options are many if you’re shopping in this class. Some of the rivals to check out include the Lexus NX 200t, Acura RDX, the 2017 BMW X3, the Audi Q5, and the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class. The 2017 Acura RDX price starts from an MSRP of around $35,370, and for that amount Acura gets you lengthy standard features, strong yet fuel-efficient V6, and a generous legroom. The Acura RDX release date is unknown at the moment, but reports allege it’ll most likely occur sometime next year.
The 2017 Audi Q5 release date should be expected mid-2017, at least for the USA market. Preliminary reports allege the price will remain unaltered, which means the Audi Q5 Hybrid price will remain at $52,500, the Q5 Diesel at $48,100, and the Q5 SUV at $40,900. More Audi Q5 specs will be available once Audi confirms to us its official debut.
Lastly, but certainly not the least, is the 2017 Lexus NX 200t. Its price starts from an MSRP of around $34,965 and for that amount you get an impeccable cabin construction, smooth and quiet engine, copious high-tech features, and lots of interior accommodations. The Lexus NX 200t release date should be expected sometime later in the year.
