With the XC60, Volvo has clearly aimed at the upscale small crossover market, and the well-equipped 2010 Volvo XC60 is a worthy competitor in this class.
The 2010 Volvo XC60 comes in just one trim level, and its standard features cover a broad range of interests. Edmunds states that the XC60 Volvo "comes packed with plenty of amenities, including leather upholstery, an eight-speaker audio system and power front seats." Adding to the list of features on the front seats, Cars.com says that "the driver's seat includes a three-position memory feature." Other standard features include a dual-zone automatic climate control system and steering-wheel-mounted controls for the eight-speaker sound system. While all these amenities sound nice at first, Edmunds reports that "you'll likely be disappointed by the XC60 T6's high MSRP, which is partially a result of having so much equipment as standard."
Not everything on the 2010 Volvo XC60 is standard, however, as a lengthy options list leaves plenty of room for customization. ConsumerGuide notes that "several option packages are available," including a $2,700 Technology Package that adds "a 650-watt Dynaudio sound system with USB port, navigation system, and rearview camera" to the XC60 Volvo. Edmunds reports that "additional safety equipment comes courtesy of the Collision Avoidance Package, which contributes adaptive cruise control, a lane departure warning system and other driver aids." For those interested in adding some daily practicality to their XC60 Volvo, Cars.com says that the Convenience Package "includes a 12-volt power point and grocery-bag holders for the cargo area, a HomeLink garage door opener, front and rear parking sensors, and a power liftgate." Aside from the various packages offered on the 2010 Volvo XC60, Edmunds remarks that stand-alone options include "adaptive xenon headlights, various exterior styling enhancements, a panoramic sunroof, keyless ignition/entry and dual integrated rear booster seats."
