Volvo XC60 T5 Review

2011 Volvo XC60 D5: 2.4-litre five-cylinder twin-turbocharged diesel engine with six-speed adaptive Geartronic transmission - $60,450 (manufacturer's list price) I know looks are subjective, but for my money Volvo’s mid-size luxury SUV, the Volvo XC60, has got the styling just right, and is arguably the pick of the bunch in a segment that includes such distinct lookers as the Audi Q5 and the Land Rover Freelander 2...
