How much cargo can handle this medium SUV?

This is a page dedicated to the Volvo XC60, specifically focusing on its boot space—a crucial aspect for anyone considering practicality alongside luxury and performance.

Examining the evolution of the Volvo XC60's boot space reveals some interesting trends. The first generation (2008-2013) and its facelift version (2013-2017) both offered 495 liters of boot space, which was quite generous for the segment.
