The XC60’s cabin is presumed to have a similar resemblance to the Volvo XC90’s cabin and will pack a more boxy profile when compared to the existing model’s sweptback look. So what superb you get inside the cabin is leather upholstered five-seater seats, a fantastic infotainment system and an all around soft-touch fascination.
