7. Volvo XC60

View XC60 Deals

The XC60 sits as the middle child of the Volvo SUV range, bigger and bolder than the XC40 but more reasonably proportioned than the XC90. It’s a fine riding, ultra safe and super comfortable car to own and live in. The interior is best-in-class with ergonomic controls and perfectly shaped seats. The boot is massive too and there’s a very appealing central screen which manages most of the cars interior functions, meaning the dashboard is nice and minimalistic. It’s all rather swanky. The XC60 uses a particularly powerful 2.0-litre engine, which produces 317 horsepower, and mates it with an electric motor which provides a further 83 horsepower, leaving the total output at a nice round 400 bhp. Not bad at all, and the XC60 T8 hybrid starts from £55,005 - which means it’s certainly not the most expensive car on this list...
