TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Volvo XC60

Volvo XC60 Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearComment
Volvo has a new, highly fuel efficient four-cylinder engine on the way. For 2014, though, the XC60 continues to be powered by a trio of 3.0-liter sixes that lag most competitors in fuel economy. The T6 scored 17 mpg in the EPA's city cycle, and 24 mpg on the highway. The Cadillac SRX does even worse (16/23), but the Acura RDX (19/27), Audi Q5 3.0T (18/26), BMW X3 35xDrive (19/26), and Mercedes-Benz GLK350 (19/24) all do better. These disappointing test scores were validated during my week with the car. In suburban driving the trip computer average usually ranged between 18 and 20. Even with a light foot 22 wasn't easy to achieve. see full Volvo XC60 review

Not that great for a cross-over SUV, but it's a relatively heavy, solid vehicle with a 6-cylinder turbo, so it's not exactly a hybrid! see full Volvo XC60 review

I have calculated my gas using the onboard computer a few different times in mixed driving and am getting a consistent 25/26 mpg. That's without hard acceleration or driving above 70 MPH on the highway. see full Audi Q5 review

We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder. see full Audi Q5 review

I worry about escalating gas prices here in CA, but I got about 23 mpg in Europe and hope for that here. Not great, but close to the turbo and if people push the turbo to make up for the lesser power, as I would, the mileage is a wash. see full Audi Q5 review
