This Is What It's Like To Live With The New Volvo XC60

If you think that owning a premium SUV with modern safety and connectivity features will make your life easier... well, you're probably right.

Take, for instance, the XC60, an example of which was handed by Volvoover to Carwow for a few months, so they got to know it extremely well; or, at least, a lot better than most reviewers do with a car they only drive for a few days.

So what's it like to live with an XC60 rather than just drive it for a short review? The answer is mostly a very positive experience, with only a handful of annoying quirks worth mentioning.

While this Volvo features excellent connectivity, extremely comfortable seats, easy to use buttons and switches (even with gloves) and a useful 360-degree camera system, there are some things that might annoy you, like the panoramic roof switch, or how difficult it can be to use certain features on the touchscreen without taking your eyes off the road.

The touchscreen is a fingerprint magnet, too, and the load cover out back can be a bit annoying to slide in and out of place. Nothing too serious, but still... Anyhow, you can read the whole long-term review by watching the video right after the jump.
