Having introduced the 90-series vehicles such as XC90, S90 and V90 over recent times, Volvo is now set to unleash its mid-size luxury SUV, the new XC60 onto our roads on 12 December. The all-new XC60 is a manifestation of the Swedish brand’s current design language, one that combines crisp design lines with gorgeous detailing. This high-rider is also based on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) platform, which is what essentially underpins their bigger XC90 too. To give you a perspective, the new XC60’s wheelbase has shot up by 44mm, is 11mm wider and sits shorter by 14mm. Plus, to keep things simple, it will only get the diesel engine (D5) and in the Inscription variant which gets all the bells and whistles.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Volvo XC60

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
