Even when most Americans were shunning wagons for minivans, then SUVs, then crossovers, wagons were a big part of Volvo’s business. But over the past few model years the Swedish brand has completely abandoned that foundation in favor of somewhat taller, more ruggedly styled ‘XC’ crossover models.

And in recasting wagons as something a little taller and rugged, it’s the 2013 Volvo XC60 that remains at the core. Smooth and rakish from most angles, yet a little bit chiseled underneath it all in profile, the 2013 Volvo XC60 manages to look handsome to buyers with a wide range of expectations. It’s an about face compared to the boxy Volvo wagons of the not too distant past, which repeat Volvo buyers and wagon aficionados might not appreciate, but you could also argue that the XC60 is merely the next step in the long evolution of them. Inside, you’ll see contrasting wood and metallic trims that remind us of Scandinavian furniture, along with carlike design attributes from other Volvos, like the ‘floating’ center stack with storage just behind, meshed with a more upright dash. It’s a classy look and feel.

Every company in the luxury business has recently developed midsize crossovers with plenty of comfort and convenience features. But let’s not forget that crossovers are meant to deliver utility as well, and it’s this quality that makes the 2013 Volvo XC60 a top choice for families.

Chief reasons include a comfortable cabin, unique family friendly features and top notch crash scores. If these descriptors sound pulled from a Reagan era review of a Volvo wagon, it’s no mere coincidence. Although the crossover (car platform based) SUV has essentially replaced the station wagon as the go to family vehicle, the basic requirements haven’t changed. With its handsome, sleek styling, the Volvo XC60 certainly won’t be confused with your aunt’s trusty old 740 wagon, but it really plays the same role in family life.

2013 Volvo XC60 Interior :
Smooth and rakish from most angles, yet a little bit chiseled underneath it all in profile, the 2013 Volvo XC60 manages to look handsome to buyers with a wide range of expectations. It’s an about face compared to the boxy Volvo wagons of the not too distant past, which repeat Volvo buyers and wagon aficionados might not appreciate, but you could also argue that the XC60 is merely the next step in the long evolution of Volvo wagons.

Especially from the side, this tall crossover is svelte by ute standards, with simple, balanced proportions and only the minimum of tasteful detailing no side gills, no vast swaths of chrome. Only in front does the XC60 overstep its boundaries of taste, with the ironmark badge. It’s still understated relative to most other luxury SUV grilles, and perhaps just enough to win over recovering SUV addicts yet not scare away those who don’t want to be seen in a truck. The 2013 Volvo XC60 is a luxury SUV that seats five people. It is available in 3.2, T6 and T6 R-Design trim levels. Each is available in standard, Premier Plus and Platinum sub trims, while the 3.2 gets an additional Premier sub trim.

The interiors of the XC60 Inscription all come with semi aniline leather upholstery and an available charcoal headliner. To further spice things up, the interior is also fitted with a leather trimmed center console armrest, door panels that match the seats, special Inscription logos and electrically adjustable lumbar support on some of the seats.

Standard features on the XC60 3.2 include 18 inch wheels, roof rails, automatic headlights with washers, automatic wipers, heated mirrors, cruise control, dual zone automatic climate control, an eight way power driver seat with memory functions and adjustable lumbar, a tilt and telescoping steering wheel, “T-tec” fabric upholstery, a leather wrapped wheel and shifter, a split folding 40/20/40 backseat, an auto dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, and an eight speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, satellite radio, an auxiliary audio jack and an iPod/USB audio interface.

Whereas the larger three row Volvo XC90 can seat up to seven people, the XC60 is designed to carry five people in two rows. The cabin has a slim dashboard control panel that gives the cabin aesthetic appeal. The second row bench seat folds flat to expand the cargo area. Interior features include :
>. Power driver’s seat.
>. Dual zone automatic climate control.
>. CD stereo with USB input.
>. Optional heated front and rear seats.
>. Optional leather upholstery.
>. R-Design models include unique instruments, steering wheel and sport seats.

2013 Volvo XC60 Exterior :
Volvo has been making an effort in recent years to give its vehicles some interior flair, and the five passenger XC60 is the brand’s best result yet. The thin panel center stack which comes with metallic trim as standard and real wood trim as an option combines with the optional two tone upholstery to make the XC60’s cabin look both modern and inviting.

The straightforward dual temperature adjustment dials and “mode man” pictogram make climate control adjustments simple and intuitive. The audio system is fairly easy to use, too, though the array of small audio buttons is starting to look dated. The available DVD based navigation system’s interface works fine in practice (especially when operating the included iPod interface), but Volvo’s navigation software still feels a few years behind.

The XC60 is instantly recognizable as a Volvo thanks to its large front grille, which is similar to the one used by the larger XC90 crossover. Despite this similarity, the XC60 is sleeker overall and has unique design cues, like angular, supplementary lights just inside its large headlights. Ground clearance measures a sizable 9.1 inches. Exterior features include :
>. 18 inch wheels, available 19 or 20 inch wheels.
>. Optional adaptive xenon high intensity discharge headlights.
>. R-Design trim includes silver roof rails, tinted rear windows, aluminum accents, a unique grille, unique tailpipes and scuff plates.
>. Optional backup camera, power tailgate.
>. Optional panoramic moonroof.

2013 Volvo XC60 Engine :
The 2013 Volvo XC60 3.2 comes with a 3.2 liter inline 6 that produces 240 horsepower and 236 pound feet of torque. A six speed automatic and front wheel drive are standard, but all wheel drive is optional. Volvo estimates that the 3.2 takes 9.1 seconds to go from zero to 60 mph, which would be quite slow for the luxury SUVs against which it competes. EPA estimated fuel economy is 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway and 21 mpg combined with front drive and 18/24/20 with all wheel drive. Both are average for the segment.

The XC60 gets a 240 horsepower, 3.2 liter in line six cylinder engine that gives it a responsive, but not altogether perky, feel. The XC60 is surprisingly hefty (more than 4,200 pounds in AWD guise), but the engine seems to come into its own on the highway and with the responsive six speed automatic can pull off very rapid passes. Sporty T6 models get a turbocharged 3.0 liter in line six, now making 300 horsepower (or 325 in R-Design form), plus suspension improvements, as well as screen based settings to adjust steering feel. One of our chief complaints is that with either of the powertrains, gas mileage is somewhat disappointing, EPA ratings are 17 or 18 mpg in the city, but we’ve seen lower in real world use.

The front wheel drive XC60 is powered by either a 240 hp 3.2 liter inline six cylinder, or 230 hp 3.2 liter PZEV engine. The “Instant Traction” all wheel drive XC60 is offered with the same engine choices as the front wheel drive, but can also be ordered with a 300 hp 3.0 liter turbocharged engine, and even a new 325 hp 3.0-liter turbocharged engine, depending on the trim level. All engine variations are matched with a Geartronic six speed automatic transmission. One impressive standard safety feature is “City Safety” which reacts at low speed to help prevent or reduce rear-end collisions by allowing the XC60 to automatically self brake to a complete stop without driver input. Other standard features include electronic stability with roll control, trailer stability assist, six airbags, and four wheel anti lock brakes. Depending on the trim level other standard features include leather seating, keyless drive, a panoramic roof, active bi xenon headlamps, and park assist.

The XC60 3.2 is powered by a 3.2 liter inline six cylinder engine, and T6 models use a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline six cylinder. Mechanical features include :
>. 3.2 liter inline six makes 240 hp and 236 pounds feet of torque, low emissions version sold in some states makes 230 hp and 221 pounds feet of torque.
>. Turbocharged 3.0 liter six cylinder makes 300 hp and 325 pounds feet of torque (T6).
>. Turbocharged 3.0 liter six cylinder generates 325 hp and 354 pounds feet of torque (T6 R-Design).
>. Six-speed automatic transmission for all engines.
>. Front or all wheel drive.
>. Optional Four-C adaptive suspension (T6).
