[YesAuto Purchase Manual] The previous generation of Volvo XC60 has left a good impression in the hearts of Chinese consumers, so the new generation model has not yet been launched and has received a high degree of attention. On the evening of December 20th, a new generation of Volvo XC60 was finally launched. The exterior and interior of the new car have undergone a comprehensive renovation, and the sense of technology and luxury has been greatly improved, and the price is not too aggressive. So in this article, let’s take a look at which model is the most worth buying, and hope to provide some help for your future car selection.

● Listing price

● Model introduction

From overseas test drive to domestic test, I have witnessed almost every step of the new XC60. It is undeniable that the new XC60 has made impressive changes in terms of technology, luxury, and capabilities.

There is a sense of maturity and reliability in the broad skull, coupled with the “Thor's Hammer” LED daytime running lights, the front face of the XC60 is not weak.

Regarding the rims, XC60 has 5 styles, which correspond to the models according to the level of configuration. The rim size of the top models reaches 20 inches.

When I wanted to describe the rear of the XC60 for the third time, I found that I seemed to be out of words, because the rear of the XC60 should have such a highly recognizable “L” taillight in my mind, which reminds me of this. The shape, you think of Volvo's SUV, maybe this is also a design success.

In the car, Mujiapi is always the ultimate solution to interpret the luxurious atmosphere. On top of this, the XC60 also incorporates a black piano paint trim and chrome-plated buttons, which seems to have doubled its value; the full LCD instrument panel and 9-inch vertical The central control screen placed makes the sense of science and technology full of the atmosphere in the car. The above ensures that the XC60 is the product of this era at first glance.

Regarding the body color, XC60 provides 8 body colors and 13 interior color schemes for consumers to choose. The range of color options is also one of the best in the same level, which absolutely meets the needs of consumers for individuality.

The XC60 T5 model uses a 2.0T high-power engine with a soft-shifting 8AT gearbox, which can drive steadily and run fast.

The four-wheel drive system is undoubtedly the biggest surprise for the XC60. The fifth-generation four-wheel drive system of Haldex only uses electronic control to give the XC60 a high level of relief from urban SUVs. It is sufficient for daily use to cope with most road conditions that ordinary people will encounter. Up.

● Vehicle configuration analysis

I believe that consumers who pay attention to the XC60 have long coveted it. Let's not talk nonsense, and go directly to the configuration analysis stage to see which model is the most cost-effective.

◆ T4 Zhiyi Edition ( Guide price: 369,900 yuan )

Volvo XC60 T4 Zhiyi Edition basic configuration

External configuration

18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, LED headlights, exterior mirrors (folding, heating, memory)

Comfortable configuration

What is Volvo's most proud label? Safety, safety, and safety. I have to say that this is really a very important thing. It is not difficult to see from the configuration table of the entry-level model that the Volvo XC60 has significantly more safety configurations than other items. This alone Starting, I believe that many consumers will be attracted to it, so with the standard items of LED headlights, electric seat adjustment (with memory) dual-zone air-conditioning, and 9-inch central control screen, what bike do you want? Fully worthy of this price.

◆ T5 four-wheel drive smart version ( guide price: 399.99 million yuan )

In terms of model naming, the difference between T5 4WD Zhiyi and T4 Zhiyi is T5 and 4WD. Undoubtedly, the power has been upgraded from 2.0T low-power engine to 2.0T high-power engine, and it is also equipped with a four-wheel drive system. In addition, will there be any improvement in the configuration? Let's continue to see.

Judging from the official configuration table, apart from the engine and the four-wheel drive system, the configuration difference between the T4 Zhiyi and T5 4WD Zhiyi is not very obvious, but don’t worry, I will give you a list, you can see What are the hidden differences between the two models.

Although the difference between the standard configuration of the two cars is small, we can see from the optional configuration that the T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyi version can be equipped with more options, and the very stylish air suspension of the XC60 is only T5 four. It can be installed as an option for the drivezhiyi version and above. Since the air suspension can be installed as an option, high-power engines and four-wheel drive systems are available. In addition to the basic configuration of the previous entry-level models, the XC60 low-end models also have very good value Cost-effective, so it is worth recommending to everyone.

◆ T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyuan version ( guide price: 429,900 yuan )

After the model version has been upgraded by another level, the gap between the two is actually very small. The optional front seat heating for the T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyi version has been standard, and the inner rearview mirror has been increased for anti-glare, 19-inch wheels, electric tailgate, navigation, manual service, etc.

◆ T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyuan sports version ( guide price: 429,900 yuan )

The configuration levels of the two versions of the T5 4WD Zhiyuan and T5 4WD Zhiyuan Sport are almost the same, but judging from the names of the two cars, the T5 4WD Zhiyuan Sport will inevitably have some differences from the normal version.

After the seemingly messy configuration table is listed, it is easy to get confused, but after we put aside the differences in the appearance package, the configuration difference between the sports model and the normal model is actually very small, the reversing image and the seat heating configuration It has been cancelled, and the paddle shift and front seat cushion length adjustment have been added. The auxiliary functions of parking image can be obtained through the optional panoramic image, and the seat heating can also be obtained through the optional installation, so if you pay attention to the visual movement, then choosing the sports version is also a good choice, after all, the price It remains the same, and the configuration is also not much different.

◆ T5 4WD Zhiya Deluxe Edition ( Guide price: 479,900 yuan )

So far, half of the 8 models of the new XC60 series have been seen. According to past experience, the Zhiya Deluxe Edition of the mid-range model should be the best choice between configuration and price, and it usually has a higher price/performance ratio. .

The next configuration comparison, since both Zhiyuan and Zhiya models have sports-oriented models at the same configuration level, we will take apart these two configuration levels for comparison. The T5 four-wheel drive Zhiyuan version is compared with the T5 Zhiya. Luxurious version, T5 4WD Zhiyuan Sport version compared to T5 4WD Zhiya Sport version.

The configuration of the T5 4WD Zhiya Deluxe Edition has been significantly improved. The air conditioning system has changed from the front double zone to the front and rear four zones. It has added follow-up headlights, 12.3-inch LCD instrumentation and other features that highlight luxury and comfort, atmosphere lights, door handles, etc. Waiting for the lights also makes the XC60 look more like a luxury car, but the price has increased by 50,000 yuan. Compared with the added configuration and luxurious atmosphere, it can only be regarded as a cost price, so there is no feeling of value-for-money, so Unexpectedly, the mid-range model T5 four-wheel drive Zhiya Deluxe Edition is not expensive.

Except for the sports package of the exterior/interior of the sports version of T5 Zhiyuan and Zhiya, the actual improvement of the configuration is almost the same as that of the previous T5 Zhiyuan and T5 Zhiya luxury models, except for some basic comfort configuration standards. There is no obvious difference other than the configuration, so the price is not high, you can choose according to your needs, and this article will not recommend it.

◆ T8 E-drive hybrid Zhiya sports version ( guide price: 549,900 yuan )

The T8 E-drive hybrid Zhiya sports version uses a 2.0T dual supercharged engine with an electric motor as the power source at the same time. The power performance is absolutely unmatched by the T4 T5 model. What improvements will be made in the configuration, let's look down.

From the outside of the configuration table, it is not difficult to see that the T8 E-drive hybrid Zhiya sports version has obvious differences on the basis of the T5 four-wheel drive Zhiya sports version, except for the obvious difference in name and power. Other aspects have not been significantly improved, and there is even a little shrinkage. Therefore, in addition to enjoying a stronger power experience and technology, the expensive 70,000 yuan does not seem to bring us more comfort improvements.

◆ T8 E-drive Hybrid Zhizun Deluxe Edition ( Guiding price: 609,000 yuan )

Finally, let's take a look at the top models. I believe that at this price, most consumers just look at it. After all, the same price can completely choose a higher-level luxury brand SUV. So let's briefly understand what improvements Volvo's new XC60 has brought to the models of this era.

Baohua Weijian audio, Nappa leather, 20-inch wheels, etc., each Almost all of the common luxury configurations nowadays are equipped, which is enough to show that Volvo's understanding of luxury is completely at the mainstream level.
