Shopping for a used Volvo XC60? With their high-end features, classic style, and powerful performance, these small luxury crossovers have mass appeal. And shopping pre-owned models helps you save thousands of dollars on a first-rate daily driver. Check out Gregory Mitsubishi’s buying guide to learn what you can expect from the used XC60 market.
Second Generation 2018-Current Model Year
What you’ll love about these used Volvo XC60 crossover SUVs:
Classy Volvo style, inside and out
Lots of luxury and tech features
Three powerful engine options
Strong crash-test performance
Three used Volvo XC60 trim levels — Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription — give you all the modern luxury and in-cabin technology that money can buy. Standard leather upholstery and a panoramic sunroof set a stylish tone for your daily drive.
Three engines were available for this generation, and any engine could be fitted into any trim level. The engine known as T5 is a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated for 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. For even greater speed, look for a used model with the T6, an upgraded version of the base engine that kicks out 316 horses and 295 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the T8 is a hybrid powertrain that combines the T6 engine with an electric motor to create a total of 400 horses and 472 pound-feet of torque.
How are these used Volvo XC60 models different from the previous generation? This crop of used Volvo crossovers introduces a sporty engine lineup and a roomier cabin with notably improved rear-seat legroom.
These XC60s are also increasingly stylish. They come standard with both luxury features and the latest tech features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity.
First Generation: 2010-2017
What you’ll love about the first-generation used Volvo XC60:
Handsome, upscale design, inside and out
Family-friendly passenger space
Impressive safety setup
Solid performance, especially with turbocharged inline-6
The original Volvo XC60 is also a small luxury crossover SUV, seating up to five passengers in roomy style. And, just like recent model years, this generation appeals to shoppers who want an upscale take on cabin comfort and everyday performance.
The trim levels from this generation are the 3.2, T6, and R-Design. The 3.2 is pretty modern, with alloy wheels, cruise control, and a power driver’s seat. For more luxury, look for the T6, which upgrades your ride with leather upholstery and a sportier interior design. The R-Design adds panache with a panoramic sunroof and 20-inch wheels.
Even today, all models from this generation are highly recommended used options. Of course, you want to make sure that any potential used XC60 that you select has had a great maintenance record and low enough mileage to suit your personal needs. But, with their roomy cabins, solid performance, and luxury features, used first-generation XC60s will serve you well.
