Volvo XC60 T8 AWD in the AUTO BILD endurance test

Because our Volvo XC60 T8 AWD needs new tires, it is a rainy morning across the city to the workshop appointment. The traffic sign recognition shows instead of the allowed 50 km / h, the automatic transmission jerks, and when parking, the parking beeps sound the alarm at all corners – without an obstacle in sight. Somehow I remembered our endurance test Volvo more confidently.

How fitting that the Swede receives a software update in addition to new rubbers. And that makes the T8 feel like a new car. On the way back, the traffic sign recognition looks through again, the transmission shifts very smoothly, and the navigation system lets me skilfully avoid the traffic jam. It’s still raining, but the XC60 drives pretty well again.
