Comparing the Volvo V60 vs. Volvo XC70 in Tampa FL

At Volvo Cars Tampa, we see many drivers who are surprised to learn that Volvo discontinued the popular XC70 in 2016. Does that sound familiar? If so, we think you might be interested in the Volvo V60! This sleek wagon offers many of the same features of the XC70, with many advanced upgrades and perks.


Design

When you see the V60, you'll see echoes of the XC70 right off the bat. Both models share the same classic wagon shape; however, the V60 adds a more stylish, contemporary spin. With its streamlined body and athletic sculpting, this is a vehicle that commands attention and conveys confidence. You'll make a bold statement in Zephyrhills in a new V60 wagon.

Like the XC70, the V60 offers seating for up to five people. Both models feature a 60/40 split-folding back row; that way, you can fold down one or both backrests to create the perfect configuration for passengers, equipment, or both. No matter what you choose, the V60's updated interior ensures that everyone stays comfortable.

We love the sculpted seats, which are both comfortable and sporty. Are you carrying tall passengers? The V60 offers more legroom in both the front and back rows, making it easy to stretch your legs on a long road trip.

Technology

A lot has changed in the world of technology since the last XC70 was released in 2016. Since then, Volvo has updated its infotainment system to include support for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto - so, while the XC70 offered a handy Bluetooth connection, the V60 takes things to the next level. Now, you can plug in your iPhone or Android phone and interact with your apps using the dashboard touchscreen.

The XC70 offered voice-activated navigation; you'll get the same feature in the V60, but with the addition of hands-free texting, phone calls, and much more. Plus, you'll love the massive touchscreen, which turns the V60 into a futuristic and ultra-convenient command center.

Performance

If you're like many drivers, you need a wagon that's built for both performance and efficiency. That's where the XC70 was a standout, thanks to the efficient T5 engine.

The V60 is available with the same powertrain in both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. If you're looking for more power, however, the V60 has you covered - it's available with the spectacular T8 eAWD system. It pairs an electric motor with a direct-injected, turbocharged, and supercharged engine; that means that you can get up to 415 horsepower and 472 lb-ft of torque. You'll achieve exceptional acceleration, effortless mountain driving, and more peace of mind from Wesley Chapel to Riverview FL.

Do you ever need to drive in snow, ice, or rain? Do you like to go off-road? The XC70's available all-wheel drive system was a popular feature - and it's also available in the V60! The all-wheel drive ensures that your tires can grip the road, ensuring better traction in all types of weather.

While the XC70 is suitable for light-duty off-roading, the V60 Cross Country gives you additional power to explore. It comes with features like hill descent control and body cladding that keeps your car safe from rocks and brush. With standard technology like run-off road mitigation, this model helps you stay in control on any type of path.

Trim Levels

In 2016, Volvo released the XC70 in four different trim levels, so it was easy to find the right mix of style and amenities. The V60 gives you even more freedom of choice, with five fantastic trim levels. If you like both luxury and power, the V60 T8 Polestar Engineered fits the bill. With the strength of a performance vehicle and the efficiency of a hybrid, this is a modern update for eco-conscious drivers.

If the V60 sounds like a good fit for your adventurous life in Brandon FL, why not come down to see it for yourself? Our team is always happy to talk about this elegant wagon; they can also set up a test drive in Tampa FL.
