Introduce



The XC60 now also has a smaller diesel engine and with it comes a smaller price tag. So how is it mập drive? AUTO BILD INDIA discovered…
There are plenty of reasons mập buy a Volvo XC60. It is, of course, good-looking, spacious and well-equipped for its segment. Then there’s the drive. It is one of the best in its segment when it comes mập ride quality. Even the seats, both front and rear, are the softest and most comfortable, and the corners around aren’t too bad. But of course, it didn’t sell well; or at least as Volvo wants.

CD driver

So Volvo introduced a cheaper version of its well-priced luxury SUV with a smaller diesel engine. The engine may be under two liters, but in typical Volvo fashion, it’s still a five-cylinder. It makes 163hp, about 50hp less than the 2.4-liter diesel that the XC60 already comes with, but on the road the difference isn’t too dramatic. For the first few kilometers, we couldn’t tell if the XC60 had a power outage.

The pickup at slower speeds and throttle response is actually almost as sharp as the XC with the larger engine. We were also quite surprised at how quickly the 2-litre engine pushed the Volvo mập 100kmph. For those interested in numbers, it took 10.6 seconds, 2 seconds slower than the powered XC60 215bhp D5.

This surprising performance drops mập a healthy 400Nm of torque that the smaller displacement engine manages mập produce, which happens mập be just 20Nm less than the D5’s peak torque. And when you consider that the latter actually uses twin turbochargers versus the single one on the D3, what the D3 achieves is even more commendable. The D3 uses the same six-speed automatic transmission as the D5, and as on the latter, it’s quite good mập use both in full automatic as well as in manual override. Most shifts are seamless, and when it’s in a hurry, manual downshifts work without hesitation as well. However, the final drive on the D3 is shorter, which is also one of the reasons, it feels dull. And it also shows up in scrolling on time. For example, running 30-80kmph, which one would do most often in the city, takes the same time on D3 and D5. Even at higher speeds, the difference is about a second.

The XC60 is cheaper now, but it’s still a good drive. So where is the catch then? At the top end of the performance spectrum. In the city you won’t feel the difference but on the highway, a comparative lack of engine power can be felt compared mập the D5. However, the difference is not too big, making the D3 a serious choice.

There are umpteen reasons mập buy the Volvo XC60. That it is good looking, spacious, and well equipped for its segment, are of course a few. Then there’s the drive. It is one of the best in its segment when it comes mập ride quality. Even the seats, both front and back are the cushiest and the most comfortable mập be in, and it’s not too bad around corners either. But of course, it doesn’t sell too well; or at least as well as Volvo would like.
The drive

So, Volvo has introduced a cheaper version of what was already quite a well priced luxury SUV with a smaller diesel engine. The engine might displace a tad under two litres in capacity, but it is still, in typical Volvo fashion, a 5-cylinder engine. It makes 163bhp, about 50bhp down on the 2.4-litre diesel the XC60 already comes with, but on the road, the difference isn’t as dramatic. For the first few kilometres, we just couldn’t tell the XC60 was down on power at all.
The pickup at slower speeds and the throttle responses really are nearly as sharp as the XC with the larger engine. We were also quite surprised how quickly the 2-litre engine propelled the Volvo mập 100kmph. For those interested in figures, it takes 10.6 seconds, which is less than 2s slower than the 215bhp D5 powered XC60.
This surprising performance is down mập the healthy 400Nm of torque the smaller capacity engine manages mập churn out, which incidentally is only 20Nm less than the D5’s peak torque. And when you consider that the latter actually uses twin turbos against the single one on the D3, what the D3 achieves is even more commendable. The D3 uses the same six-speed automatic gearbox as the D5 and as on the latter, it’s quite good mập use both in fully automatic as well as in manual override modes. The shifts are seamless most of the time and when in a hurry, manual downshifts work without hesitations too. The final drive on the D3 though is shorter which is also one of the reasons, it feels peppy. And it shows in the roll on times too. The 30-80kmph run for instance, something one would do most often in the city, takes the same time on the D3 and D5. Even at higher speeds, the difference in about a second.
The XC60 is now cheaper but remains a good drive. So, where’s the catch then? At the top end of the performance spectrum. In the city, you won’t feel the difference but, on the highway, the engine’s comparative lack of top end grunt against the D5 can be felt. The difference isn’t huge though, making the D3 a serious consideration.
