Additionally, Volvo - a perennial leader in emissions control - offers two version of the 3.2 with either ULEV-II (ultra low emissions) or PZEV (partial zero emissions) systems. <p><br>This latest edition of what might be termed the world's safest passenger vehicle incorporates more than 80 years of safety innovation including the Volvo invented 3-point seatbelt more than 50-years ago to the introduction of standard City Safety, a low-speed collision avoidance system, launched with the 2010 XC60 T6 AWD earlier this year.<p><br>Other safety features include Roll Stability Control (RSC), pretensioned seatbelts in all seating positions, an inflatable side curtain for front and rear passengers and a high-strength Boron steel roof structure, the XC60 combines both active and passive safety systems in one stunningly designed package. Additional standard safety features include Dynamic Stability Traction Control (DSTC), anti-lock brakes, WHIPS, Volvo's whiplash protection seats, and the SIPS side-impact protection system.<p><br>Standard equipment on the XC60 3.2 includes: 17-inch alloy wheels; auto-dimming inside rearview mirror, Bluetooth with hands free capability, dual zone Electronic Climate Control, front fog lamps, HD Radio, high performance audio system with 8-speakers, a 4x40 amplifier, CD player with MP3 capability, cargo area load cover, power driver's seat with memory function including the outside mirrors, Sirius Satellite Radio including a 6-month complimentary subscription and USB and auxiliary inputs.<p><br>The XC60 3.2 is also included in Volvo's excellent Complimentary Factory Scheduled Maintenance program, which covers the first three years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first). Complimentary Factory Scheduled Maintenance helps reduce the cost of ownership by providing customers the first four maintenance visits to their Volvo retailer as complimentary. A wide range of services are covered by the program, including oil and filter changes, cabin filter replacement, complete fluid level top-offs and a check of the vehicle's on-board diagnostic system. <p><br>The XC60 3.2 also has five preferred value packages and a wide assortment of stand alone optional equipment available:<p><br>Premium Package: $1700<p>Leather Seating Surfaces <p>Tinted windows rear seats and cargo area <p>Compass in Rearview Mirror<p>Power Passenger Seat<p><br>Climate Package: $1000<p>Heated Front Seats<p>Heated Rear Seats<p>Heated Windshield Washer Nozzles<p>Headlamp Washers<p>Rain Sensor<p>Humidity Sensor<p>Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)<p>Total Package Value<p><br>Convenience Package: $1000<p>12V Power Outlet in Cargo Area<p>Grocery Bag Holder, Cargo Area<p>Home LinkTM<p>Park Assist, Front & Rear<p>Power Operated Tailgate<p>Total Package Value<p><br>Multimedia Package: $2700<p>Dynaudio Premium Sound System with Dolby® Pro Logic® II Surround Sound<p>Navigation System with DVD Map Data, Real-Time Traffic, & Remote Control<p>Rear Park Assist Camera<p>Total Package Value<p><br>Technology Package: $1700<p>Adaptive Cruise Control<p>Collision Warning with Auto Brake<p>Distance Alert<p>Driver Alert Control<p>Lane Departure Warning<p><br>Stand Alone Options:<p>All Wheel Drive with Instant Traction & Hill Descent Control $2000 <p>Metallic Paint $550 <p>Electric Silver Metallic Paint $675<p>Laminated Panoramic Roof, Two Laminated Glass Panels w/Power $600<p>Modern Wood Center Stack Inlay $295<p>Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) $700<p>Personal Car Communicator (PCC) with Keyless Drive, Two-Way $550 <p>Car Communicator and Heartbeat Sensor <p>Dual Outboard Two-Stage Child Booster Seats w/ Adaptive Seatbelts $500<p>and Power Child Locks (Rear Doors) $465<p>Dual Xenon Gas Discharge Headlights with Active Bending Light (ABL) $800<p>18" MERAC Wheels $750<p>from VCNA<p>- - -<p>William

Re: Volvo announces pricing for 2010 XC60 3.2 (William)

A good and not-surprising development - should increase the market, and as a new owner of the initial T6 version, there is nothing to make me regret having jumped in early.<p>I do note, however, that the "free $1200 value" moonroof has quietly become an optional <I>$600</I> moonroof...<p>No mention of other optional wheels - one of the bigger disappointment of the initial roll-out option structure is that the much-hyped 19" Achilles wheels can only be had as an after-purchase accessory at over $2500/set - no thanks even though I would have liked them. So now the lower model comes with 17" wheels but an 18" purchase-time upgrade at a reasonable $750. If Volvo soon start offering the 19" wheels for a reasonable upgrade price (which they should do) I will be somewhat put off that they didn't do it before.<p>The new versions are not yet on the website "Build Your XC60" page - this should be coordinated with the press release timing. Customers read the story, then jump to the site and it's not there - hello Volvo NA.<p>

For 2010 the moonroof is listed as a $1000 option for the S40 and S80.

So even the $600 moonroof option for the 3.2 model should be considered a kind of promotional price, possibly to increase later.<p>All that isn't the main point anyway. As I said, I think it's good for everyone that the model range is expanded. Do you think the 3.2 will attract more traffic into the dealership?<p>
