2010 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD Review

Man there are a lot of new crossovers/SUVs this year aren't there? Well...I guess that is what most people are interested in so may as well keep them coming with the 2010 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD. This one is supposed to crossover more to the side of the station wagon than the sporty side of things I guess if that makes any more sense than a fat burner in a sumo wrestling cap.

Volvo's XC60 is a crossover sport utility that leans more toward the station wagon side of things than the SUV side. By that I mean Volvo used its considerable wagon experience to craft the XC60 rather than sharing some of Ford's Explorer experience (Volvo was a part of Ford when the XC 60 was designed). That's a good thing.

For years, Volvo wagons have led the market. Adding all-wheel drive to the equation only adds to their practicality without reducing their overall appeal. The price is higher than a Toyota Highlander, for example, but the luxury part of the equation is also higher, making it almost worth the sticker. Full review
