One of my newest car reviews was out of this world amazing. I was given the 2017 Volvo XC60 T6 AWD and it was amazing. I’ve never even driven a Volvo vehicle before but remember seeing them on the road a few years back and I was so excited when it arrived and was so sporty looking. A 5 seater with plenty of room for a family of 5 with lots to store in the trunk space. The seats were comfy in the front and in the back and there was plenty of leg room to be had which made it great for driving around the city for the week. The ride was smooth and comfortable and boy did this car have speed. On open road you can go from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds and it’s the smoothest transition I can ask for. The supercharged and turbocharged engine allowed you to get 240-302 horsepower that was unreal and I was in heaven. I normally will drive my kids to school, run errands, sporting events and what not but not a lot of extras; well when this car arrived I found myself offering to do all sorts of car runs just to be in the comfort of the Volvo.
Lets talk about clicks for the Volvo. The very first day I had the Volvo at my home I drove it around and parked it in my driveway. As I was loading the kids up in the car to get ready to go to baseball practice I had 3 different Volvos roll up asking about my new car. What dealership did it come from, what model style did you get, do you love it? I was a tad in shock why are all these people coming up to me that I don’t even know and it is in fact there is a Volvo click going around my neighborhood. I had no idea.
Since I have little kids when driving a vehicle around I always want to know how safe it is if I were to ever be in a collision and the Volvo rates very safe. The car is surrounded in air bags that will protect everyone in the front as well as in the back and if there is a hard impact in the front you are in good hands. Safety is always my top priority when it comes to my family and this vehicle exceeded all of my expectations.
I loved the touch screen navigation, the ease of driving the vehicle, the comfortable seats and the fact that you can save on gas. Wondering how? There is a button on the dash “A” that automatically turns on when the car is turned on and what this does is shuts off the engine at every complete stop to ensure you’re saving gas at all times. Of course you do have the option to turn this feature off but I found it pretty cool.

- Back Up Camera & Rear Parking Sensors
- Navigation with Real Time Traffic

What’s not to love? It’s a luxurious vehicle that has all the bells and whistles and is suitable as a daily driver for yourself or your family. I had a blast in my week long journey in this beauty and can’t wait to experience driving one again soon! To test drive one and see what the hype is all about head to your local Volvo dealer near you.
