The best year for a used
Volvo XC60
for most drivers, it’s hard to go wrong with the 2020 to 2022.
2020 and 2022 Volvo XC60s each earned 9/10 ratings from Car and Driver, and it boasted a years-long streak as one of their Editor’s Choice picks from 2018 to 2022. That said, it’s worth noting the 2019 model year has been subject to various recalls.
The first generation of XC60s (2008-2016) is typically prone to more problems, especially as these vehicles get older and are subject to more wear and tear. 2010 and 2015 are commonly cited as troublesome model years for the XC60. But if you find one in good shape, you could find a spacious, comfortable vehicle that’s significantly cheaper than a brand new XC60.
XC60 tends to get above-average reliability ratings, with RepairPal giving the vehicle an overall 4/5—and it also ranks fourth on its list of most reliable luxury compact SUVs.
But the XC60’s model year isn’t the only thing you should note. You’ll also want to pay attention to:
  • The Volvo XC60’s overall condition
  • Its mileage
  • Its accident history
  • Its safety ratings
  • Any existing recalls
  • Its average insurance costs
  • Commonly reported problems
  • Other factors that are important to you, whether that’s cargo volume, drivetrain options, or available tech features
Once you find the perfect Volvo S60 model year for you, remember to make sure your new-to-you wheels are protected by the right
