Following the success of the Volvo XC90, Volvo Malaysia has launched the new Volvo XC60, which USES the same design elements as the XC90, plus a lot of technology and safety features to make the XC60 even better. This mid-sized luxury SUV officially landed in The Malaysian market with a price of RM298 and 888, which is still competitive!

The new XC60 is like a travel Volvo on stilts. The face isn't that far from the XC90. The side of the car looks a bit more supple than the XC90, and the rear is the most striking feature. The XC60's inner L taillight is similar to the travel version's S90.
The new Volvo XC60 is built on its own SPA modular chassis, and the new design makes the XC60 more youthful. From the front, we can see Volvo's new family design Sol Hammer daily walking light. In addition to the daily walking light, it is also the location of the direction light. The rear has a design called the Viking Axe, and the overall look is very bright. It has a smaller XC90 feel, which is a big change from the previous generation's design.

You can also see a very large screen in the center console. Basically, the whole screen integrates all the tedious keys, including air conditioning temperature adjustment, safety switch and so on, which have to be controlled through the screen. In addition, some of the elements include the ultra-aspirating crystal stick and shift paddles (T8 only), the rotary engine start button and driving mode switch rollers, which can be seen on the new Volvo XC60.

The T8 engine, with 407hp and 650Nm output, is very powerful.
In terms of safety, the Volvo XC60 is certainly not in question, as both the current mainstream active and passive safety features can be seen on the new XC60. Through early released by the original factory XC60 body frame structure, we can see that the XC60 large high rigid material, factory also let the XC60 had very much impact test, including positive impact, small area of the impact and tumbling test, etc., have to admire Volvo car safety for the persistent, become the most safe models in the same level believe that no one would object.
