Revised Volvo XC60 on sale with new Android infotainment system
Volvo’s updated XC60 is now on sale in the UK, featuring latest styling and technology upgrades, including a new Android-powered infotainment system.
Priced from £41,745, the MY 2022 midsize SUV gets new front and rear design treatments, along with new colours and new alloy wheel designs. Volvo has also hidden away the exhaust pipes, as part of wider design changes that showcase the company’s path to solely offering fully electric cars by 2030.
Bigger news lies in the arrival of Volvo’s new Android-powered infotainment system that provides built-in Google apps and services; the XC60 is one of a number of Volvo cars getting the new system, already available on the XC40 Recharge and bringing a number of benefits. Features include navigation with Google Maps, voice recognition with Google Assistant and access to the Google Play Store for in-car apps. The package includes data to cover four years of use, and over-the-air software updates are also now possible.
The new XC60 also features wireless smartphone integration as standard via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and wireless device charging, along with four USB ports so multiple devices can be connected at once. In addition, the XC60 gains an upgraded 12.3-inch driver information display.
Latest safety features include a rear auto brake to help avoid reversing scrapes while the optional Pilot Assist now comes with an emergency stop assist function.
Engine line-up includes three Recharge plug-in hybrids and four mild hybrids, covering two B5 and one B6 petrols, and a B4 diesel. Power outputs range from 197hp to 405hp. All versions are all-wheel drive except for the B5, which is available in front- or all-wheel-drive form.
The updated XC60 is on sale in the UK now, with first customer deliveries expected in June.
