Get ready for the new XC60 from Volvo

There are 2 different models for you to choose from. The XC60 T6 LE and the XC60 T6 SE which pushes you forward in the 285horsepower and 400Nm of torque with its All Wheel Drive with Instant Traction. Both these models are fitted with the very powerful and impressively responsive 3.0 liter turbocharged 6 cylinder T6 engine. The XC60 T6 LE is priced RM360,000 while you can get your hands on the SE version for RM330,000. Of course being the lower range of the XC series, the size of this car might be slightly smaller if you are to make quick comparison with the XC90.

Where accessories are concerned, the LE sets the bar higher as compared to the SE version. Of course that would be the case since you are paying some RM30,000 more for this. However, rest assure that you will be satisfied once you know what you are in for. This is where you will be in store for some cool stuff. For instance, the 12 speaker Dynaaudio sound system which gives you an all round superior audio quality not found in any cars around this segment. A 6 CD changer which allows you to connect to iPods as well as Bluetooth devices also comes standard. For the SE version, you only get an 8 speaker audio system which to a large extend is pretty good stuff.

Well, of course there is more to this than merely a top notch sound system. The LE also comes with AutoBrake system with collision warning, Drive Alert Control, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and all placed nicely below its panoramic sunroof. Safety equipments in the XC60 includes dual chamber front Side Impact Protection system airbags, ABS, EBD, dynamic stablitiy and traction control and many more all of which will certainly impress you to the max. if that is not enough, you will surely like the blindspot information system, powered tailgate and the Personal Car Communicator for keyless entry.

No wonder Robert Norman, the president of Volvo Malaysia is so positive about this model saying that “Volvo wanted more expression, more emotion in the design of the car, so that the XC60 would be instantly recognisable and desired. Down below, the unmistakable and capable XC muscles pump up the vehicle, giving it a purposeful stance with high ground clearance on large wheels. Above the waistline, the dashing lines trace the profile and sporty charisma of an elegant, beautiful coupe,”
