When Volvo announced the new XC60 was coming, I was worried that the design of the XC90 wouldn't translate well and that the engineers would de-tune engined and cut back on interior quality. Those worries however were totally unfounded when the XC60 finally landed. Think of this as the XC90's mini-me with a little S90 tossed in for good measure. In addition to maintaining the XC90's handsome looks, the smaller 2-row crossover also gets the same engine lineup as the larger crossover with less weight to haul around. The result is a full-loaded hybrid Volvo crossover that goes from 0-60 in 4.9 seconds, which is coincidentally the same time as a GLC 43 AMG and actually faster than a 2018 Audi SQ5. Oh, and you get to drive it solo in California's HOV lanes... 0-30 : 1.6 Seconds 0-60 : 4.9 Seconds 1/4 Mile : Not Tested 60-0 Braking : 118 Feet More videos: http://goo.gl/Kj1FlI Best cars in 2016: http://goo.gl/3xAVJi Upcoming reviews: http://goo.gl/pLtP6U AOA on Facebook: http://goo.gl/a47Cu1 The Mountain Garden: http://goo.gl/icFWcd

If you want your car to serve you longer and save money on expensive service and maintenance, pay attention to these simple yet really important rules. Experts recommend a few things to keep in mind and a few common mistakes to avoid to make your car last longer. If you stick around till the end of the video, we’ll tell you how you can fix a cracked windshield with garlic. Having the correct tire pressure is a sort of “Goldilocks” situation. If it gets too low OR too high, you can have serious problems. Don't forget about seasonal tire changes and remember to swap your front and rear tires at least once a year. Sharp acceleration and abrupt braking might feel like fun, but they’re actually extremely harmful to vehicles. If you decide to park on an incline and put your car in Park, it puts too much pressure on the transmission. In rare cases, it can even become dislodged or break down. So the best option is to use the emergency brake. With the help of the symbols on the car's dashboard, your car can tell you when something's wrong, like when the engine's overheated, something's wrong with the electrical system, or the brake fluid level is too low. Go to an auto repair shop as soon as possible to save yourself from expensive repairs or even an accident. Weighing your vehicle down excessively does nothing good for the car's suspension, steering, transmission, tires, and engine. Plus, overloading increases fuel consumption and makes the car more difficult to handle. Remember that cars, just like people, need regular check-ups and “health” tests. Music: Retro - Wayne Jones https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music TIMESTAMPS Keep your tire pressure in-check. 0:40 Take it easy on the gas and brake pedals. 2:03 Park correctly. 2:42 Don't ignore the dashboard. 3:54 Don't forget about vehicle inspections and repairs. 5:13 Avoid overloading. 6:03 Don't overload the clutch. 6:50 Bonus: fix a cracked windshield with garlic! 7:18 SUMMARY -Check your tire pressure at least twice a month (but once a week is even better). While adding air to your tires, make sure they aren't warm to the touch and don't overfill them. -If you’re a fan of sharp acceleration and abrupt braking, remember both of them are actually extremely harmful to vehicles. Plus, you’re just burning more gas than you need to. -Avoid throwing the car into Park before coming to a full and complete stop. The same goes for putting the car into Drive or Reverse before stopping fully: don’t do it. -If you notice the engine light flashing while you're driving, slow down right away because this might be a sign of a serious problem. The brake light lets you know that somewhere in the braking system something has gone wrong. -Check your car’s manual to find out how often you should change your oil or air filter and remember that a lot of it depends on your driving habits. Get yearly inspections and keep in mind that routine maintenance will depend on the season and the mileage. -Get acquainted with the maximum load capacity for your car and stick to it. Try to get rid of all of the useless stuff in your car. -Don't hold the clutch in at long traffic lights. During short stops, shift to Neutral and press the clutch right before you start moving. -Take a clove of garlic, cut it lengthwise down the middle, rub the cut side over the crack, and wipe away the excess juice with a paper towel or napkin to keep the crack from getting worse until you can get it repaired.

The 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 E-AWD is a great illustration of how far we’ve come since the days of the Benz Patent Motor Car. It’s an astonishing machine that achieves these two, seemingly irreconcilable, stats: the equivalent of 59 miles per gallon and 400 horsepower.
Its efficiency comes via a plug-in hybrid system with 18 miles of all-electric range, while all that muscle is generated from an electric motor working in concert with a gas engine that’s both super- and turbocharged. It sounds incredibly complex because it is, but like a Steve Jobs special, it just works, with the driver blissfully unaware of what’s making it all happen.
There’s more here to marvel at, including a trick all-wheel-drive system that uses separate powertrains for each axle, and enough safety equipment to survive a nuclear blast. Perhaps the only knock against the XC60 T8 E-AWD is its relatively high price. It’s true, though, that you get what you pay for, and with Volvo’s latest, greatest iteration of the compact SUV, you’re getting an awful lot.
As a luxury vehicle, the XC60’s relatively high base price of $41,500 should not shock you. This isn’t a Mitsubishi, after all. Even still, can the $71,590 as-tested price of this XC60 T8 E-AWD Inscription be justified? In a word, yes.
For one, Volvo now fully competes on the same level as Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi, all of which offer luxury compact SUVs that can reach this stratospheric range of pricing. Second, the XC60 T8 E-AWD Inscription is a technological tour de force, a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) powerhouse that can be gliding on electrons one minute and embarrassing Mustangs the next. If you have the money, it’s worth every penny of it.
Since it’s got a plug, the XC60 T8 E-AWD is also eligible for a federal tax credit of $5,002 and may be eligible for more state and local credits depending on where you live.
The XC60 has been completely redesigned, and where the last generation was all curves and bends, the new one adds sharper character lines and a smattering of creases. Still instantly recognizable as a Volvo, the new look was inspired by the XC60’s big brother, the XC90, and it very clearly works at 4:5 scale.
The XC60’s interior is a palace of Scandinavian design and exotic (at least for a car) materials. The components of its construction include Nappa leather, real metal, “Driftwood deco” accents with natural texture, and even crystal from Swedish firm Orrefors in the gearshift lever. As for the most common element in cars today – plastic – there are only trace amounts of it to see and feel in the XC60’s interior.
The XC60’s accommodations for passengers and cargo also do not suffer from the addition of a 10.4-kilowatt-hour battery pack. Indeed, head and legroom are very good for both front and rear passengers, and the cargo area is every bit as plentiful as the space inside non-plug-in competitors. The XC60’s optional $1,800 air suspension can also perform a trick to aid loading: press a button on the wall of the cargo area and the rear end drops half a foot.
Lastly, as a plug-in hybrid, the XC60 T8 E-AWD offers a completely serene driving experience while operating in pure battery mode; it can go up to 18 miles on a full charge. There’s no noise and no vibrations – just silent propulsion. When that’s expended, Volvo’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’s both supercharged and turbocharged comes alive. At this point, engine noise does become apparent and the volume is higher than traditional four-cylinder engines in some competitors, but it’s still well within the range of acceptable.
