Excellent All Round Suv — Compared Kia, Subaru, Audi, and MB before buying the Volvo. CX60 had the best combination of quality, price, and performance of any we saw. Zero maintenance costs have been nice and there has been no reason to take it back for anything other than routine service. Handling, braking, and acceleration are more than adequate. Interior and exterior are attractive design, material quality is excellent, and workmanship is at least as good as any other, better than most. Very comfortable and feels safe under pretty much all conditions.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice looks and good handling for an SUV.  Plenty of room.  Quiet and relatively smooth ride.  Good turning radius.

Cons: Fuel economy is good for an SUV, but it is still an SUV.

Nice Little White — The car is powerful, surprisingly handle wells, Volvo's 5 year safe and secure program and City Safety are unbeatable. It does work and saved me from crash a couple times. Except the leg room of the second row seat, I don't really have other complains.

Pros: powerful, safe, looks good

Cons: non

Best Value For Money Of Any Suv On The Market. — We shopped a lot for a mid sized SUV before buying the Volvo. Rented Kia, Nissan, and Mercedes for trips and for a week in town. Borrowed an Audi Q5 for a while. Test drove a Lexus. The Japanese cars felt and looked cheap except the Lexus and all of them had sloppy handling and brakes compared to the Europeans. The Audi and Mercedes had nicer fit and finish than the Japanese and better handing, but ergonomic problems that we felt would always be irritating. The Volvo has attractive styling inside and out. Ergonomics are very good. Fit, finish, and materials are on par with the other high end Europeans, but price is considerably lower. Handling is good for an SUV. Ride is quite and comfortable. Safety rating is excellent. Our XC-60 is the base model with a few options, but offers pretty much everything we wanted. The only change I have made to it was the addition of an aftermarket rear sway bar. That improved the handling without any negative effects on ride comfort. Would consider larger factory wheels with lower profile tires for even more precise steering.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Nice looking, excellent reliability, solid feel, good handling, reasonable fuel economy, compares favorably to SUVs that cost more, good ergonomics, convenient size for parking and for cargo.

Cons: It's an SUV instead of a sports sedan.

Has Been Good To Me So Far... — Did a lot of research (Highlander, Enclave, as well as American-brand crossovers) and when it came down to it, I was deciding between the XC60 vs. the Audi Q5. Liked both in terms of options, luxury & price vs the others in the class. Was on the lookout for a pre-owned Q5 2.0 given the reviews that said it was more fuel efficient than the 3.2 but couldn't find one in my desired timeframe. Car feels very solid and safe when driving. It has good to great acceleration when getting on the highway, but I don't really use the T6 engine to its full capability as I prioritize fuel efficiency.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: ~18-19mi to the gallon in mostly city (suburban) driving ~30%+ better than our XC90.  
Great cargo space for its class
Responsive, sedan-like steering and good-looking low profile stance
BLIS system a nice plus

Cons: Off-black interior gets really hot in the summer.  
Back seats don't slide - specs tell you there's roughly the same legroom as in the XC90, but since the XC90 rear seats slide
