The new XC60 will arrive with three model grades and a range of four engines depending on which trim level you choose, with the cheapest version starting from $59,990 plus on-road costs.

The Inscription features the same choice of engines with pricing for the D4 kicking off from $66,990 and the T5 from $69,990.
