To me, the XC60 was a real hot rod, but it was always boosting or shifting - very busy. I had to hold it in first gear to drive it around a parking lot or in stop and go traffic. My wife almost had a kitten when it did not slow down exiting a highway.
If you look at the engine specs it reaches full torque at 1500 RPM - touch and GO!
If you are in a hurry, get the XC60.
However, if you like to see out the windows, slow down when you take your foot off the gas, and relax when you drive, consider the XC70.
We bought a new 2012 base FWD for under 30K.
