What You Have to Get From 2021 Volvo XC60
Volvo has made a variety of changes for 2021, so without further ado, let’s, go ahead and jump right in so like always, i’ll start out up in the front where there haven ‘ T really been any significant changes for 2021. Now volvo does change the grill design, depending on the trim level. So here on this inscription, you’ll notice. We have chrome around the outside edges as well as chrome bars in the middle. If you choose the momentum trim level that will get rid of the chrome bars in the middle and if you go for the sporty r design model, that’s, going to substitute in a black mesh throughout here and then coming over here to your Headlights, of course, you ‘
Ve got the signature, volvo design with the cool thor’s, hammer and a full led unit. One of the changes for 2021 Volvo XC60, though, is that you actually have standard adaptive abilities this year across all of the trim levels and then down below you’re, going to notice, led fog lights, and these are actually also standard this year across.
All of the trend levels now, one of the things i appreciate about this 2021 Volvo XC60 – is that volvo gives you an extremely wide breadth of wheel options that you can choose between starting all the way at 18-inch alloys, 19-inch, alloys, 20 inch.
Alloys are all the way up to 21 inch alloys, depending on the trim level that you select. These here are the 20 inch alloys that are optional on the inscription now jumping on up here to our mirrors.

Now let’s, walk around to the rear design of this xc60. Now, what you’re, going to notice compared to its bigger brother xc90, is that this has a little bit more of a sportier and squattier appearance, especially here in the rear design.
Now, as far as your individual elements, you are going to have the signature, volvo 2021 Volvo XC60 LED tail lights. These are actually going to be fully led, which is a really nice touch and then dropping down. We do have some chrome accenting and then, as far as the diffuser area, you do have dual horizontal exhaust outlets on most of the xc60 lineup.
However, if you go for the momentum model, they do swap these horizontal outlets out for circular outlets. Now volvo markets itself as a very safe vehicle brand. So, sticking with that, this 2021 Volvo XC60 is going to have their entire suite of safety systems standard on all of the models that’s, going to be more safety systems than i can even name and volvo does also offer their pilot assist system, which is A semi-autonomous driving system available through the advanced package, well guys that sums up the classy yet sporty exterior design of this 2021 Volvo XC60.

If you choose the r design or the inscription trims and finally remote start is available via the volvo on-call app free for 40 years now to get inside the vehicle itself. There is a sensor so just touch behind the handle and taking our first glance inside.
Of course, just like in previous model years, it really has a lot of influence and is very very similar to that flagship xc90, and one of the best things about this xc60 is that it ‘ S got just about as many interior options as that flagship model, so starting on your base, momentum that comes standard with real leather seating in your choice of blonde charcoal or maroon colors, and it does have a fabric option as well.
If you want something more unique, when you go to the 2021 Volvo XC60 R Design that comes with napa leather with textile inserts and that has the choices of charcoal or slate gray colors and finally, when you get up to this model, the inscription that comes with full napa leather Seating in your choice of blonde charcoal maroon or this lovely amber, and it also has the wool option from the xc90, which is really really cool.
So across 2021 Volvo XC60 dash, you’re, going to find a full leather dashboard.

As an option on all the trim levels via the climate package, all right, but now let’s, go ahead and try out the interior storage, because this is one area that has changed a bit this year. So we’ll start out. Underneath the center console, this part has not changed, so you can still continue to find a really nice amount of space with a felt lining on the sides, as well as a rubber mat on the bottom and two usb ports.
Then we grab out our coupons, which the stack does grow in size day by day. Stick these in here looks like we can probably fold them in half and it’s going to be a little bit tight, but it does fit in there. Just fine now, when we slide back this piece of wood, this is where you’re, going to notice some updates, so your cup holders have been moved back a little bit to right here and we now have a wireless phone charging pad.
So this is brand new to the 2021 Volvo XC60 and it is optional across all the models up in front of that you have another really small amount of space and a 12 volt outlet now turning our attention here to the shifters, since this is the t5 model, we Have the standard shifter, if you choose to have the new recharge model, that’s, going to have the cool crystal shifter, but this one here just works.

You can swipe over here to the side and open up android, auto or apple CarPlay abilities which are standard across the board. Now, moving on up here, we will find an auto dimming mirror with a built-in compass and homemade universal remote standard on all, but the base momentum trim then up at the very top we’ll find a panoramic moon roof which is actually standard on All of the trim levels, as you can see, this is a very large piece of glass, goes all the way back past the second row, headrest and the front portion will open right up now.
This 2021 Volvo XC60 rear seat is a very, very nice place to spend time, as it is with pretty much any volvo model. Now, as far as the space itself is going to be concerned, it’s, going to be rated at 38 inches of both leg and headroom, which does place it right on par with that of its rivals like the audi q5, and it is actually Larger than the bigger brother xc90 now, as far as behind drew sitting position, i have, i would say, five to six inches of rear leg ram and my feet can easily set up underneath the seat so certainly very comfortable.
Now they also have thrown in a lot of features in this rear seat. So we do have four zone climate control, which is a very impressive feature for this segment of vehicle, and then we have our vents down below that it’s. Also worth noting that heated rear seats are available in the climate package, then dropping further below that we do have two charging or two usb type-c ports. That is new for 2021, as are these bolster seats so in? If you recall in previous volvos, they have the bolster seat in the middle.
However, you cannot extend okay, so there was our initial acceleration. This is the t5 model, so for those of you familiar with the volvo lineup that’s actually going to be your entry level engine with this 2021 Volvo XC60.
So this is a two liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine 250 horsepower 258 pound-feet of torque. Like i said that is your standard option. Then the lineup escalates from there. So you have the t6, which is also a pretty popular, offering that’s, going to add a supercharger to the same engine and further bump that power up to 310 horsepower for that t6 and then there’s.
Also, the t8 model, which is being rebranded as the recharge, and you will start to see more volvos as the t8 since volvo’s, pushing for the electrification and that’s, going to have 400 horsepower so that’s going to be kind of your performance option as well as efficiency based and there’s, even a poster engineered model, even more power, as you can see, you’ve got a lot of choices when it comes to this middle volvo.
I’m, going to go ahead and mention uh the transmission, so it’s got an 8-speed automatic transmission on board, like mostly volvo lineup and, as i said in other volvo products, a very smooth transmission shifts very nice and seamlessly in The background we’re in the comfort mode right now, when you choose to put it in dynamic mode that crisp up the you know response of the transmission and have a little bit more firm shifts.
Now i will go ahead and mention the fuel economies for the xc60. So for this t5 it’s, going to be right at 25, combined. If you go for front wheel, drive 24! If you go for all-wheel drive, um and then the t6 is all-wheel drive only and that’s going to be rated at 23 combined. If you’re interested in that recharge t8 model, that’s, going to have a 57 mpge rating, so that’s, going to be your most efficient option.
