Volvo cars have revealed refreshed versions of the S90 sedan and the V90/V90 Cross Country estate models, including a refined exterior design and a brand new, state-of-the-art sound system by Bowers and Wilkins.
In a broader portfolio upgrade, the company’s 48 volt mild hybrid powertrain options are now available on every Volvo model, further boosting the company’s electrified offer. In terms of exterior design, there are not many noticeable change. There are new fog lights, a new spoiler design and a new lower front bumper.
On the V90 and V90 Cross Country, the most striking feature is a brand new rear light design, including full LED-powered signature lighting and a sequential turn indicator. A range of new exterior colors and wheel options are also available now for more personalisation for the buyers.
On the inside, a comprehensively upgraded Bowers & Wilkins audio system introduces an even better in-car sound experience, thanks to new features such as an upgraded amplifier, automatic vehicle noise compensation and a new setting that mimics the “perfect jazz club sound.”
Another new feature inside is an Advanced Air Cleaner with a PM 2.5 particle sensor. First developed for the Chinese market and now rolled out globally, it allows drivers to monitor interior air quality via the center screen. If desired, the Advanced Air Cleaner can clean the cabin air of almost all tiny particles within a few minutes.
All models in the 90 and 60 Series now also come with double USB-C charging points in the rear, replacing the 12 volt outlets. The wireless charging functionality for smartphones, first introduced on the small XC40 SUV, is now also available on most variants in the 90 and 60 Series.
First introduced on the XC90 and XC60 SUVs last year, the mild hybrids are now also available on all other 90 and 60 Series cars as well as on the XC40. The mild hybrid powertrain options on the V90 Cross Country represent the first electrified variants in the history of the Cross Country range.
Volvo Cars’ mild hybrids offer drivers up to 15 per cent fuel savings and emission reductions in real world driving. The brake-by-wire system interacts with the energy recovery system and reduces fuel consumption and emissions by recovering kinetic energy under braking.
