The new Volvo XC60 may play a major role in setting up the market of automobiles in India. The new Volvo XC60 has  2.0 -litre 5-cylinder Drive-E diesel engine producing 181PS of power and 400Nm of torque. Complimenting the new engine is a quicker shifting 8-speed automatic unit that replaces the six-speed gearbox. The XC60 R-Design also comes with paddle shifters. With the engine and gearbox updated, the XC60 R-Design is a more potent SUV at this price point.
