Volvo Brings A New 2014 XC60 SUV To Town


Volvo has launched the new 2014 model-year XC60 luxury SUV in Malaysia from just RM288,888.00. The XC60 continues to lead the segment as one of the safest SUVs on sale in the market but this time the 2014 Volvo XC60 seeks to entice buyers with a subtle new look, a handful of new technologies and a new hi-tech drivers cockpit that is similar to the cockpit seen in the Volvo V40 T5. Under the hood is the 2-liter 4-cylinder Drive-E engine mated to an 8-speed Geartronic transmission.


Standard features include powered tail-gate, built-in rear booster seats, eight-speaker stereo, Bluetooth phone and audio plus USB and Aux ports, rear camera and rear parking sensors, electrically adjustable driver’s seat, electric park brake, climate control, rain-sensing wipers, rear door power child locks and 17-inch alloy wheel.


Exterior changes for this new XC60 comprise new look headlights and repositioned LED running lights plus new front and rear bumpers. Brake lights remain unchanged, but the front-end redesign brings the medium SUV in line with V40 and S60 models, and black plastics below the doors have been removed.


There are also minor changes to the rear end, including snugly integrated trapezoidal exhaust pipes. Along with new interior finishes, one of the key changes inside the car is the adoption of a funky new digital instrument display. Gone are the old analogue dials replaced with a trio of high-resolution digital readouts – a large central screen flanked by a pair of slim vertical displays.

The layout is clear and concise and well delineated between the three screens, and has a more premium look than some of its rivals thanks to the sensible layout. There are also three different modes the driver’s viewing pleasure: elegance, eco and performance, each with slightly different data.


As mentioned it’s also the smaller touches that make the car appealing, and in general the interior is sensibly designed with good levels of comfort and space. The boot has a large 650 litre capacity expanding to 1450 litres, and the 40:20:40 split rear seats make the rear load space versatile. Front and rear seat passengers get cup and bottle holders and glove box is large.


Volvo’s 2.0-litre turbo-petrol generates 350Nm of low down torque to shift the car’s shapely bulk and uses just 6.7L/100km while doing so. With an extensive list of safety features, including roll stability control, whiplash protection and front and rear head airbags, the Volvo XC60 has a five-star NCAP safety rating. Not forgetting is Volvo’s 5-­year warranty, 5-year scheduled free maintenance and 5-year roadside assistance promise.
