Courage. Grit. Determination. When you’re at the edge, cut off from the world in a 9-month ocean endurance test, you truly understand the extreme.
The punishing conditions of the Volvo Ocean Race are the perfect place to explore the limits of performance. Every new challenge influences our design thinking.
The XC60 embodies our learnings about pushing the driver and your equipment in extreme conditions. Dynamic Stability and Traction Control starts to deal with a skid situation at the earliest sign; Hill Descent Control enables you to stay sure-footed in the most precarious of downhill manoeuvres; and our Continuously Controlled Chassis Concept constantly adapts itself to suit your current speed and terrain.
As all of these features are driver-controlled, you are able to design a ride that suits you every time you start the car. The XC60 is designed around you.
Volvo Car Corporation offers its own unique Scandinavian Luxury – cars designed and developed in consideration of people. Volvo delivers products with elegant design language, pioneering new safety and electrification technologies and smart, intuitive solutions to put the driver in full command of the car.
The Volvo Ocean Race is also manifested in the Volvo Ocean Race limited edition, produced in the Volvo XC60, V60, V70 and XC70 models. Inspiration is taken from the race and sailing, and embodied in features such as the Volvo Ocean Race blue exterior colour as well as uniquely designed emblem, leather upholstry, load cover, floor mats, tread plates and wheels.
