If you wear headphones, your mind won't be blown, but it will go, "woah." I'm also the producer for the Winding Road YouTube Channel: http://youtube.com/windingroadmagazine Here on TheTopher, I'm known for putting a camera on my face and driving cars. Whether it's about any of my personal cars or reviews on weekly test vehicles, the goal is to give you an idea of what a certain car is like to drive or live with. Most of my videos are filmed in POV, with my clothes on, and (for like the 5th time) with in-ear binaural audio. Which, if I haven't made it clear yet, is why you should wear headphones. Because of the whole "woah" factor. It's there, trust me. Try it, you'll see! Or don't. As long as you whitelist me on your adblocker I'm okay with whatever you do or don't do with regards to headphone usage. That is all. Oh and I guess you should also probably subscribe. Why are you still reading this, you should be watching the video. With headphones! Hah, had to sneak that in there one more time. Later!
Northern coolness or German precision - is the new Volvo V60 the better T-Modell, Avant or Touring? See for yourself....
00534 2018 Volvo XC60 T8 control features & first drive
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
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.
