Expert Quotes:

18 mpg city, 25 highway (front-wheel drive); 18/24 (AWD); 17/22 (T6)
U.S. EPA





There's a lot to like about the XC60—until fuel economy numbers enter the discussion. In sizing up the XC60, most shoppers would expect it to do a little better than its EPA ratings of 17 or 18 mpg in the city and 22 to 25 mpg highway.

For 2011, a retuned engine brings fuel economy down slightly for the base front-wheel drive model but up for the XC60 AWD. The numbers are also better this year for the turbocharged T6—even though power has significantly increased for it.

Volvo's six-cylinder engine haven't been very efficient in real-world use either in our editors' experience; we've seen numbers in the 16 to 19 mpg range in mixed use.

Conclusion

Volvo might be quite safety and environmentally minded, but many vehicles in the XC60's class go easier on fuel.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
