The second generation of Volvo’s popular midsize XC60 crossover has been out for a while now, which means its recent mid-cycle update was due. And after experiencing its updates for 2022, we welcome the added refinement and content.
For starters, Volvo makes its 48-volt mild hybrid system available to certain models in the XC60 lineup. Volvo also ditches its traditional, belt-driven supercharger for an electrically powered unit, which should give Volvo’s tuners more control over how the blower is working and help reduce parasitic draw. Powering this XC60, in B6 trim, is a 2.0-liter I4 that’s turbocharged and equipped with the aforementioned electric supercharger.
On this episode of Quick Spin, Patrick Carone hops behind the wheel of the Volvo XC60 and brings you along for the ride. He also walks you around the refreshed XC60 with Volvo product manager Gaurang Kalsaria. Kalsaria and Carone talk about the XC60s design and its position in the Volvo lineup. Afterward, Carone takes you along for a live test drive of the XC60. Between these segments, Carone talks with host Wesley Wren about the 2022 Volvo XC60. They discuss the XC60’s new features, styling, and performance. Before closing the show, they also discuss the Volvo XC60s price and what makes it special.
