Volvo launches XC60 premium SUV in India at Rs 55.90 lakh
Volvo states that its XC60 models represents around 30% of their total global sales.
Swedish car manufacturer Volvo on Tuesday launched its much-awaited XC60 premium SUV in India, priced at Rs 55.90 lakh in ex-showroom Delhi.
The new XC60 premium SUV replaces Volvo's highly successful XC60, which was launched in 2008 and is now in its second generation.
Volvo statement said that XC60 models represents around 30% of its total global sales.
New XC60, one of the safest cars ever made, is fully-loaded with new technology. Steer assist has been added to the ground-breaking City Safety system.
A new safety system called Oncoming Lane Mitigation uses steer assist to help mitigate head-on collisions, while Volvo’s Blind Spot Indication System (BLIS) now uses steer assist functionality to reduce the risk of lane-changing collisions.
New XC60 offers Volvo’s award-winning T8 Twin Engine petrol plug-in hybrid at the top of the powertrain range, delivering 407 hp and acceleration from 0-100 Km in just 5.3 seconds.
The new car is launched with diesel D4 engine at 190 hp and the D5 with PowerPulse technology delivering 235 hp. It also has the petrol-powered T5 delivering 254 hp and the T6, which with both turbo and superchargers attached, delivers 320 hp and 400 Nm of torque.
Thomas Ingenlath, senior vice president, design at Volvo Car Group, earlier in March 2017, said, "The XC60 is an SUV not designed to look down on others but to drive. The exterior has an athletic sculpture with a subtle, timeless quality."
Ingenlath further added, "The interior is a masterful composition of well-resolved architecture, beautiful materials and the very latest technology - all perfectly blended together. The XC60 provides a true Scandinavian experience which will make our customers feel special."
On Indian roads, the XCGO will compete against cars like Audi Q5, BMW X3, Mercedes-Benz GLC, Jaguar F-Pace, and even the upcoming Lexus NX300h.
