Article by Christian A., on August 25, 2010

According to common wisdom, crossovers are the new wagons; however, at Volvo the heritage is more apparent. The Volvo XC line wagon-style crossovers was tremendously successful in the United Sates, along with different wagon lines representing around 50% of Volvo's sales in previous years. Adding a smaller, but sportier, version to the company's lineup, was the 2010 XC60 that debuted last year at the Geneva Motor Show.

Pricing for the U.S. spec XC60 was revealed today to begin with $37,200. Volvo asserts that the latest XC60 is the safest model ever, and will come with a long list of the most current safety technologies available including the newest 'City Safety' auto braking system as standard.

This feature mainly aims at reducing damage caused by collisions at speeds less than 19 mph (30km/h). The new car will come with the turbocharged 3.0-liter T6 which generates 281 hp (209 kW) which is also found in the XC70. All models are equipped with an AWD system and the standard Instant Traction by Volvo. Other markets will receive a couple of 2.4-liter 5-cylinder diesels rated at 163hp (121kW) and 185hp (138kW).

There are three main optional packs to choose from: XC60 with Technology Package priced at $2,700, which will come with the usual premium 12-speaker audio system, DVD nav system and rear-park assist camera.

A Collision Avoidance Package that will come with adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning system, collision warning with automatic brake, distance alert and driver alert control, will cost $1,695. Lastly, a Convenience Package, that includes an additional 12V power outlet, cargo net in the rear storage section, front and rear park assist, power tailgate and a Homelink garage door opener, costs $1,000.
