Volvo XC60 facelift unveiled; India launch this year

The XC60 facelift gets an Android-based infotainment head-unit among other updates.

Volvo has revealed the updated XC60 for the 2021 model year. The SUV is expected to be launched in India later this year.

As part of the refresh, the XC60 gets a redesigned front grille, new front bumper and alloy wheel designs.

On the interior, the car gets an updated Android-based infotainment head-unit. The system has been developed in collaboration with Google and is said to offer a smartphone-like experience. With the new Digital Services package, users can get access to Google apps, Google Assistant, Volvo on Call app, wireless phone charging and the data required to run the service. The car is also equipped with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

Besides the new infotainment system, Volvo has also updated the materials used in the cabin. The car gets a leather-free interior and City Weave textile upholstery.

In India, the XC60 facelift will be offered with a 2.0-litre, 4-cylinder, turbo-petrol engine. This engine replaces the 2.0-litre diesel unit that currently powers the SUV. The oil burner comes in two states of tune- 187 BHP or 232 BHP.
