2011 Volvo XC60 Features

9.0
On Features
Volvo used to be known for its rather stark, utilitarian interiors, but that's history. The 2011 Volvo XC60 is packed with an impressive list of standard features, including Bluetooth connectivity, HD Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio with six months' service, USB and auxiliary inputs for audio players, a large moonroof, roof rails, and power front seats. The first three years or 36,000 miles of maintenance are also included.

For 2011, you can now get the R-Design package. This new model includes most of the same equipment included in the T5 R-Design: dual xenon headlamps with Active Bending Light, a panoramic sunroof and power sunshade, leather sport seats with contrasting colors, roof rails, and a special R-Design grille, trim, and 20-inch wheels.

The XC60 T6 model gets a slightly more aggressive look compared to the base XC60—with 18-inch alloys (instead of 17s on the base), silver side trim, the panoramic sunroof, rood rails, and a couple of other color choices, but its look isn't quite as aggressive.

Nearly everything you'd expect in a luxury crossover is available in the 2011 Volvo XC60.

Top options include a Dynaudio 650-watt sound system, a rearview camera and navigation system, it runs $2,700. Volvo's nav unit takes some getting used to also, by the way—it's not a touchscreen device, and only the driver can operate it from wheel-mounted controls. Heated seats are part of a $1,000 package; adaptive cruise, distance alerts, lane-departure warning, and collision warning are bundled for $1,695.
