Volvo XC60 Tyres
The Volvo XC60
The Volvo XC60 is the XC90’s little brother, and since 2008 has competed in a very crowded compact SUV market against the likes of the VW Tiguan, the Audi Q5 and BMW’s X3. Similar to most other vehicles in this segment, the XC60 isn’t really designed for heavy off-road use – it’s designed to combine the attributes of a family car, with the driving and safety benefits of high riding all-wheel drive. This combination has helped propel the XC60 to Volvo’s bestselling vehicle.
The 2017 Volvo XC60 promises to build upon the success and popularity of the first generation XC60. It’s already won the Auto Express Premium SUV of the year and the steps Volvo has taken to modernise this vehicle are clear to see in both the interior and exterior design, which strongly resembles the striking XC90.
Volvo XC60 Tyres
Thanks to Volvos Scandinavian heritage and uncompromising approach to safety, Volvo’s have been engineered to provide excellent levels of grip and safety, regardless of road conditions. A key part of this performance however, relies on reliable and safe tyre performance.
The tyres you choose for your XC60 will of course depend on the type of driving you do most. If you use your XC60 as a motorway mile cruncher, then a high mileage, economical tyre would likely be the preferred option. If you want to make full use of the all-wheel drive system, then all season tyres make a sensible choice for good year round levels of grip. Meanwhile the combination of winter tyres and an all-wheel drive system, offer unbeatable performance for those who frequently drive in wintry conditions. For the few who intend on putting the XC60 in the rough stuff frequently, all terrain tyres are recommended.
Volvo themselves have tested and recommend a number of tyres for the XC60 models which are fitted to the vehicle as standard, all of which are manufactured by Pirelli and Bridgestone.
