We Recommend

The R- Design trim offers all the benefits of Momentum trim plus some infotainment and safety extras. For most buyers , the R-design trim would be sufficient and we recommend it to you. If you are willing to shell some extra bucks for the luxury then, Inscription trim should be your choice.

The prices for the different trim levels of the Volvo XC60 will be revised for the 2022 model. The base trim will now cost you $2,000 or more at $42,000 for the T5 momentum where the AWD version costs you $44,500. The T6 momentum comes standard with an AWD and will be available at a price of $46,000.

Inscription trim is available at $62,000. The T8 Polestar is the flagship hybrid trim and is the most powerful trim of the XC60 lineup.

Volvo has not released an official launch date for the 2022 XC60. A price hike of about $1000-$1500 is expected for the 2022 XC60 models. It is the talk of the town that the 2022 models will be launched in late 2021. We’ll keep you updated on this.

2022 Volvo XC60 Engine and Performance

The Volvo XC60 will retain the previous engine options for the 2022 model. The base engine is a 2.0L 4 cylinder turbocharged motor that outputs 250hp of peak power with 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine is available as standard with the T5 lineup of trims. There's a twin-turbo version of the same engine that boasts 258hp of power and 295 pound-feet of torque. The T6 trim comes with a 2.0L I-4 engine with an added supercharger giving a power output of 316hp and 295lb-ft of torque.

The T8 is a hybrid version and is equipped with a 313hp I-4 that combines with an 87 hp electric motor to provide a total power output of 400hp. The tuned T8 Polestar gets a 328hp I-4 where the power output goes all the way to 415 hp of combined power which is the most powerful offering of Volvo. All the engines are mated to an 8-Speed automatic transmission and offer an AWD system for off-road capabilities.

The standard drivetrain of XC60 is FWD whereas the rivals have RWD and AWD drivetrain. The T6 and T8 trims get AWD as standard. All the SUVs have similar engines where the Volvo XC60 has the maximum power output of 250hp with its base trim. With multiple power options available, the XC60 can suit different needs. The T5 takes 6.3 seconds to reach 60 MPH of speed and takes 14.5 to complete a quarter-mile stretch.

The T6 has better performance numbers as it takes just 6.0 seconds to reach the speed of 60 MPH and to cover a quarter-mile in 14.2 seconds. The top of the line 415hp T8 Polestar takes 5.2 seconds to reach 60 MPH and a quarter-mile timing of 13.2 seconds. No doubt, the XC60 has the most powerful 4 cylinder engine where rivals switch to 6 cylinders beyond 300hp.

2022 Volvo XC60 Fuel Economy

As the engines are carried over from the previous model, the fuel economy will remain the same. All the trims have a similar 18.8-gallon fuel tank. The huge fuel tank helps with fuel management. With that, the XC60 has the best-in-class fuel economy. The closest rival to the XC60 is the BMW X3 with its good enough fuel economy which is a bit less than the XC60. The 2022 Volvo XC60 T8 changes the whole game with its 59 MPG out of which 31 miles are the all-electric range.

For a layman, it will not be easy to differentiate between the 2021 model and the 2022 model as the cosmetic upgrades aren't that much.

Volvo designers keep the structure aerodynamic and sleek by avoiding unnecessary body lines. With new color options, the XC60 will get a fresh character for the 2022 model.

2022 Volvo XC60 Safety

Volvo cars have always been marketed as the safest ones on the road. The Swedish brand makes good use of ultra-high-strength steel to carve out a rigid body structure for the Volvo XC60. With that, you get protection from front and rear crumple zones to drive impact away from the cabin and side-impact bars give side-bound protection.

The 2021 Volvo XC60 is well equipped in terms of active and passive safety. It will offer much better standard safety features with the 2022 model for advanced safety from road hazards. The XC60 has been rated by the NHTSA and IIHS for its safety. The 2021 model of the XC60 was rated 5 stars for its safety. Only the rollover ratings were 4 stars. For the IIHS, the 2021 XC60 was rated Good in all the parameters with superior ratings in front crash prevention. In fact, it was the Top safety pick plus for its safety in the segment. The highlights of the safety features are:

  • Pre-collision safety system.

2022 Volvo XC60 Competition

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300

The Volvo XC60 is for the ones who want a spacious yet luxury cabin experience. The XC60 is equipped with advanced tech and features for your entertainment and convenience. The Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 is slightly more premium than the XC60 with better interior design and standard features. The XC60 takes the lead with its competitive price and multiple engine options that take the power output up to 415hp with its hybrid version.

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 BMW X3

With its decent performance, the Volvo XC60 has the best fuel economy in the segment. We don't get the great performance like the BMW X3 that makes sure you enjoy driving the crossover up to its limits and still get a good enough fuel economy. The X3 is more capable with its 4,400lbs of towing capacity which is much better than the XC60. BMW is for the enthusiasts and the XC60 is a family SUV with all that comfort and space.

2022 Volvo XC60 vs 2021 Porsche Macan

Volvo has been making reliable cars for a long time. Its vehicles are rated above other brands in terms of overall value. Another brand with such a flawless image is Porsche. Volvo offers everything with its cars from performance, technology, safety, and luxury. The Porsche Macan on the other hand is a track-oriented SUV with its power-packed engines. Both Volvo XC60 and Porsche Macan are unique in their own way. Porsche Macan is less practical compared to Volvo XC 60.

2022 Volvo XC60 Final Verdict

The 2022 XC60 is a modern-day luxury crossover SUV that comes packed with advanced tech and remarkable performance. As each trim level of the XC60 has different configurations, you will have various options to choose from. The updated XC60 will give a fresh appearance in comparison to the 2021 model.

Now, the XC60 gets the latest Android-powered infotainment display with built-in Google services and access to Google Play. The new interface will revise the whole interface with which the systems operate. The cosmetic updates are limited as Volvo has planned something big with the XC60 for 2023.

The introduction of the T8 Recharge Plug-in hybrid version was a revolutionary step by Volvo as more people are shifting towards either hybrid or electric vehicles. The R8 Polestar is the most well-equipped trim level with standard features and a 415hp combined power output. The 2022 XC60 will probably start at a price of around $43,000 for the base trim.
