Volvo has introduced an updated version of its XC60 SUV.
Exterior design changes include a new-look front grille, a new lower front bumper and air intakes, and a revised lower rear bumper, with newly-hidden exhaust pipes.
Inside, the Android-powered infotainment system now features Google services including Google Maps navigation, Google Assistant voice recognition, and Google Play Store functionality for additional in-car apps. The package includes data for four years, and over-the-air updates.
Wireless smartphone integration with Android Auto and Apple Carplay is now standard, as is wireless charging, and four USB ports, while the 12.3in driver display features updated graphics.
A new rear auto-brake function automatically stops the car to avoid collisions when reversing, and the optional Pilot Assist system has gained an emergency stop assist function.
Engine options are three mild hybrid petrols, a mild hybrid diesel, and three plug-in hybrids. All are exclusively all-wheel drive except the entry-level petrol mild hybrid, which is also available with front-wheel drive, with which it forms the starting point for the range, priced at £41,745 with the Momentum equipment grade.
The updated XC60 is available to order now, with the first deliveries expected in June.
