After the new color versions of Bentley Bentayga presented yesterday, let us stay with the subject of SUV: Volvo's contribution is the XC60, which was presented in its original form in the year of 2008. In 2015 there was a small facelift, whose appearance has the US model AutoLabel MotorCity be taken as a model. The 1:18 scale held, highly successful model car diecast zinc has around opening doors and hoods and approaches in quality and finish of the models of Kyosho on. But these white Motor City in 2 disciplines to beat: An opening glass roof and folding exterior mirrors find the collector as good as anywhere else This is a blast - as is the total model..
XC60 makes us speechless
Yes, the positive conclusion we can safely assume at this point already anticipated, because the first impression of the model leaves no other conclusion on when to praise it: appearance and look of the miniature coincide perfectly with those of the prototype. The fit of hoods and doors and their gaps - to do everything technically no better. The details such as the radiator grille with the 4 new chrome trim, the company logo, a replica of the interior of the headlamp and especially the development of the lower grille in the front apron and the indicated underride protection are top. The folding door mirrors - so that make us speechless: Why is something not common in Minichamps & Co.? Unbelievable but true: There are at the Topminiaturen still room for improvement.
Other producers are outclassed
But that the glass roof can be opened, which outclassed the model cars and other providers must be incorporated necessarily in our grading system. We are speechless, so happy we are talking about this model car. And otherwise it can be seen: antenna for navigation, to joint-free conformal to the body, transpartent red and white colored taillights, thin filaments for the rear window heater - all very well done. Inside Motor City sparked an orgy voiced details: fittings, seats and door side panels are prototypically formed. Instruments and controls are highlighted with correct colors. A felt mat covers the floors into passenger and engine compartment. The seat seams and trim are perfect imitation.
Highest score for the XC60
We come to the motor: The model is to have in Chrystal White Pearl White and Rich Java Brown, reproduce each version T6 AWD, the 225 kW / 306 hp and is coupled with an eight-speed automatic. The model car making use of its power set a realistic picture of how things get under the hood of the prototype. We especially like the dipstick, the Motor City simulates beautifully. From grille on the separately mounted door handles to folding exterior door mirrors and the sophisticated Glass roof of the Volvo XC60 is a top notch model car that deserves our full praise and with a 1+ receives the highest possible rating. Congratulations to Motor City and place the model you warmly recommend.
