Best Premium — 2016 Volvo XC60
Version tested: T6 AWD Drive-E
Price as Equipped: $52,505
The second Volvo to win its class at this year’s Mudfest, the XC60 is a contemporary 5-passenger crossover with an attractive interior and a very unusual powertrain. The XC60’s 2.0-liter engine puts out an amazing 302 horsepower because it is both supercharged AND turbocharged. This unique setup allows for smooth power from a standstill with no turbo lag, and a fuel-efficient 27 mpg for the all-wheel drive version. With excellent handling and performance — in addition to a comfortable ride both on and off pavement — the Volvo XC60 is a great option for the premium SUV shopper.
