Handles Well
Although we wouldn’t refer to the XC60 as being sporty, it handled the twisty mountain roads well and feels tighter and better planted than its predecessor. The transmission shifted quickly, downshifting smoothly as needed when climbing steep mountain roads. We did try the paddle shifters on the R-Line but found the delay in shifting to be a bit frustrating. That said, the gearbox shifts well enough on its own, making the paddle shifters somewhat unnecessary.
