All set for release in late 2021, the prices have increased by $300 and the MSRP starts from $42,000 onwards.

The 2022 Volvo XC60 remains unchanged for this year besides the addition of the mild-hybrid unit as standard with the powertrains. All set to arrive in late 2021, it will be available for sale with a starting MSRP of $42,000 in 3 trims and a total of 9 configurations to choose from based on the powertrain and drivetrain options. The interior is feature-packed and loaded with the new tech from the brand before it refreshed the generation in 2023.

Under the hood, you get a 247 hp 2L turbocharged I-4 engine with a 48V mild-hybrid unit as standard which is now called the B5. The addition of a supercharger bumps up the power to 295 hp and changes the designation to B6. If fuel frugality and power are what you yearn for, then the 2022 Volvo XC60 Recharge with the 400 hp T8 powertrain is the one to pick for $53,950. The XC60 T8 Polestar Engineered bumps the power to a whopping 415 hp.

2022 Volvo XC60 Engine and Performance

The XC60 takes corners well, feels tied to the road while cruising, and changes directions with confidence.- Car And Driver

The 2022 Volvo XC60 retains the engine options from 2021 MY. Labeled as the B5, you get a 2.0L turbocharged inline-4 cylinder engine with a 48-volt mild hybrid system that churns out 247 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. If that feels short, you can opt for the more powerful B6. The B6 adds a supercharger to the B5 powertrain which improves the power output to 295 hp and the torque to 295 lb-ft. Both the powertrains are hooked up to an 8-speed automatic transmission as standard.

2022 Volvo XC60 SUV Engine Bay

For fuel frugality and better power, the T8 Hybrid powertrain in the Volvo XC60 Recharge is the option. It combines an 87 hp electric motor with the B6 powertrain to churn out 400 hp. If you opt for the T8 Polestar Engineered option, the power output increases to 415 hp. The B5 comes with FWD as standard and AWD as optional for $2,300 across the trims while the T8 and B6 are hooked up to an AWD as standard for a wholesome driving experience. 

While it is not built for it the 2022 Volvo XC60 definitely sees an improvement in its acceleration specs owing to the mild hybrid system addition. With the B5 powertrain, the ride can sprint from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds while the quarter mile comes up in 14.7 seconds. The B6 causes these figures to drop to 5.7 seconds in the 0-60 mph and 14.2 seconds in the quarter mile drag. The T8 powertrain is still the quickest by posting a time of 4.8 seconds in the 0-60 mph sprint and 13.4 seconds in the quarter mile.

Compared to the rest, the Volvo XC60 is less powerful this time around but packs more punch with its acceleration figures. The Porsche Macan extracts the most out of the pocket, and yet is the slowpoke when it comes to sprinting. However, it makes that up with the decent driving experience it offers. The BMW X3 offers similar specs as the XC60, however, it is slightly slower than the Scandinavian. The Mercedes Benz GLC Class is the most powerful and that shows in its acceleration times.

2022 Volvo XC60 Fuel Economy

7.0/10

Volvo fits small-displacement engines in every XC60, but hefty curb weight and luxury gear brings fuel economy down.- The Car Connection

The 2022 Volvo XC60 carries the same engine options from 2021, and hence the MPG figures remain intact as well. Opt for the B5 powertrain and you will get 22 MPG in the city, 29 MPG on the highway, and 25 MPG combined. Upgrade to the 316 hp B6 engine, and the MPG figures drop by 2 MPG across all aspects.

These are hooked up to an 18.8-gallon fuel tank in all configurations. At full capacity, you can get an overall driving range of 470 miles with the B5 while the B6 will cause this to drop to 432 miles. For the best fuel efficiency, you might have to spring for the 2022 Volvo XC60 Recharge with the T8 powertrain.

The BMW X3 takes top honors with the best MPG figures, however, it offers the smallest fuel tank. The Volvo XC60 is only marginally behind and sits in second place. The Mercedes Benz GLC Class manages to procure the third place on the podium while the Porsche Macan hangs out to dry with its gas guzzler approach.

2022 Volvo XC60 Interior

8.0/10

With interior styling and rich materials that mirror more expensive Volvos, the XC60 is like having your kladdkaka and eating it, too.- Car And Driver

One of the best aspects of the 2022 Volvo XC60 is its interior. You get a simplistic yet elegant design from the base Momentum trim level itself. The opulent interior impresses anyone who wants to enjoy the finer things that a ride can offer in a choice of 4 interior trims. The front seats offer power-adjustability along with heating capability and provide ample space to be seated comfortably. 

 

2022 Volvo XC60 SUV Dashboard

Depending on the trim level, the interior accents change from polished or brushed aluminum to wood. The rear seats are also quite spacious for even the tall guys to be seated comfortably. However, if you are anything over 6'2", you might find it a struggle to be seated in the back. Being a family car, it also caters to practicality with a sizeable cargo space of 29.7 cu-ft and lots of cubby spaces throughout the cabin.

Compared to the rivals, the Volvo XC60 offers the best space in both rows and the biggest cargo bay. The BMW X3 is the only one that manages to come close to the Volvo's interior dimensions. The GLC-Class also offers decent space, but lacks cargo space. For in-vehicular entertainment, you get a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system placed vertically with a Harman Kardon Sound System as standard.

7.0/10

Exterior changes are pretty subtle and center around small modifications.- KBB

While the generational change is pegged for 2023, the 2022 Volvo XC60 is going out in style for one last time in its present do. You get LED headlamps at the front with the distinctive Thor's hammer DRLs all across the lineup. Depending on the trim level, the grille gets a chrome or black color treatment. Despite its stance as a mid-size crossover, it looks sleek and stylish. 

On the side, the silhouette remains simple and elegant whilst highlighting the 19-inch alloy wheels. From the add-on options, you can even get 22-inch alloy wheels for $2,590 extra.

  • Body-colored front and rear bumper and door handles
  • Rain Sensing Wipers

2022 Volvo XC60 Safety

9.0/10

The XC60 has received consistently excellent safety scores over the last few years, which we expect to continue for 2022. - MotorTrend

Volvo as a brand has always marketed the level of safety its cars provide. Since the 2022 Volvo  XC60 will remain unchanged, the safety ratings from 2021 XC60 can suffice. The 2021 Volvo XC60 received a 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA.

It also received the Top Safety Pick award from the IIHS along with an overall Good rating. It offers a host of driver-assistance features that ensure all-around safety and then some. That being said, the features that you can see in the new 2022 Volvo XC60 are:

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC Class

The Mercedes Benz GLC Class is the ever opulent high rider of the lineup. Despite costing higher than the 2022 Volvo XC60, the GLC-Class offers lesser MPG figures, and has lesser space in the interior and cargo bay. The only upsides are the luxuries you get, the higher power from the engine, and hence the better performance in accelerating off the line. In retrospect, the Volvo XC60 seems like a better investment. 

 

2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 BMW X3

The BMW X3 is the efficient and tech king in its segment. Being the top seller for the brand, it offers the best MPG figures, equivalent space in the interior, and a supple ride with the top of the line safety tech onboard for just 2 grand extra in the asking price. Overall, the Bimmer is the winner of the two.

 

2021 BMW X3

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 Porsche Macan

The Porsche Macan is the costliest ride in the lineup and a pure driver's car. The power is marginally lesser, however, the performance is miles ahead. However, that is pretty much the only upside. The interior offers lesser space while the MPG figures are far from average. Additionally, maintenance and long-term ownership are also costly. Hence, the Volvo is the better value for money option. 

2021 Porsche Macan

2022 Volvo XC60 Final Verdict

All set for launch in late 2021, the 2022 XC60 is a modern-day luxury crossover SUV that comes packed with advanced tech and remarkable performance. The interior is comfortable and luxurious while the exterior is stylish and stands out from a lot of the other cars in the segment. Club that with the lucrative price tag it bears, and the 2022 Volvo XC60 is the perfect car both as a family car and a daily driver.
