2. Volvo XC60
The Volvo XC60 delivers a great ride, supple interior, and the high end safety Volvo is known for. The XC60 has a number of models to choose from. The front wheel drive models come equipped with either a 240 horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder, or a 302 horsepower turbo and supercharged four-cylinder. The all-wheel drive models offer a 250 horsepower five-cylinder, 300 horsepower six-cylinder, or a 325 horsepower turbocharged six-cylinder. All models handle beautifully on the road, but all-wheel drive is the better choice. The Volvo City Safety system can stop the vehicle completely from 30 mph, and has pedestrian and bicycle detection built into the system. The leather wrapped interior will keep you comfortable while you cruise along in this great vehicle.
