Facelifted Volvo S90 and V90 models offer mild hybrids range-wide
Volvo has refreshed its S90 saloon and V90 estate with updated design, extra features and the option of mild hybrid powertrains; now available on all the carmaker’s models.
Introduced on the XC90 and XC60 SUVs last year, the 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain options cut emissions and fuel consumption up to 15% by recovering kinetic energy under braking, and will be offered across the S90 and V90, including the V90 Cross Country.
Exterior design changes see Volvo’s latest 60 and 90 series cars gain new fog lights, spoiler and front bumper, along with new paint colours and wheel options. The V90 also gets new tail lights, including full LED-powered signature lighting and a sequential turn indicator.
Equipment updates bring an upgraded Bowers & Wilkins audio system and an Advanced Air Cleaner with a PM 2.5 particle sensor, previously only offered in China and said to be able to clean cabin air of almost all tiny particles within a few minutes.
All models now come with double USB-C charging points in the rear, replacing the 12-volt outlet, while wireless charging, first introduced on the XC40, is now also available on most variants.
Wool blend seats introduced on the XC90 last year are now also available on all 90 and 60 models, while there is also a leather-free interior option for the top trim levels.
