What weight caravan did you tow?

We are extremely pleased with ours, exactly the same version, 2017 model with a host of extras. Handles our Bailey U3 Pamplona TA  (upgraded to 1800 kg MTPLM) very capably.  Plenty of “grunt” and, surprisingly, far better fuel consumption than our 2litre Audi A4 and A5s both while  solo and when they were towing our previous U3 Vigo (uprated to 1550kg MTPLM).  Also, achieves Euro6 compliance without the hassle of using AdBlue. Has its little Volvo ”quirks” - E.g. handbrake switch position and wiper “flick” switch control are counterintuitive and take a while to get used to when switching XC60<>A5 but I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another when change time comes - but of course this model has sadly now been superseded.
