Expert Quotes:

The [R-Design] stiffer springs and reworked dampers give this crossover a somewhat jarring ride over broken pavement and pockmarked roads
Autoblog

comfort for long-haul cruising is tough to top
Car and Driver

On imperfect surfaces...you might find yourself fielding questions about why the XC60's ride seems overly firm.
Edmunds

Rear seat head and legroom are on the generous side for this class
Motor Trend

Nothing ostentatious, but you’re still well aware that you’re in an upscale vehicle.
Consumer Guide

Tucked neatly into the Volvo XC60's organically smooth shape is a lot of tall-wagon room and a couple of extra inches of height, for good ground clearance or better step-in height, however you prefer to interpret its mission. 

An upright driving position leaves tall drivers with enough head room, and Volvo's traditionally supportive seatbacks are in evidence, though the seat bottoms don't have the same delightful feel as Volvos past. The footwells are a little narrow, too. The second-row seat is a little tight on leg room, and three adults won't easily fit across, even for short trips, though three children will belt in with room to spare.

Cargo space is pretty generous, at more than 30 cubic feet with the rear seats up, but they fold down into a large cargo area (67 cubic feet), but they don't fold quite flat. However, there's an extra stash area just under the cargo floor.

Overall, the XC60's interior speaks of quality trim and textures, with lots of upscale finishes like available real oak veneer. About the only thing we aren't impressed with is the driver interface, which seems cluttered, and relegates some controls to a screen display and a button on the back of the steering wheel.

 

Conclusion

Back-seat room is somewhat tight, but the XC60's seats are excellent and its cargo area is large.

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.
