Globally revealed earlier this year in March, the facelifted Volvo XC60 gets a subtly revised exterior design. The front bumper has more angular lines and the “fog light” housing at the sides extends vertically with a chrome piece slicing across.

On the Recharge T8, the lower section of the front bumper now has a chrome strip that runs full-width, tidying up the design. The vertical slats on the front grille are also redesigned. It also gets a new set of wheels, measuring 19-inch in size.

Over to the rear, the exhaust outlets in the rear are no more and there’s a chrome strip running across the bumper to match the front.

The Momentum variant gets a similar front and rear bumper design albeit without the chrome strips, and smaller 18-inch wheels.

Inside, the 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system now runs on Android Automotive OS, which comes with pre-installed Android apps like Assistant, Maps, Play Store, etc. It will receive over-the-air updates for everything from maintenance to completely new features, just like smartphones or tablets.

There's also Volvo Car App and Connected Services, which is an app that enables remote control of several car functions.

The rest of the interior remains largely the same, save for the wireless charger; the Recharge T8 gets wood inlays and leather upholstered dashboard, Orrefors crystal gear knob, and the lovely Bowers & Wilkins sound system.

Other features include panoramic sunroof, head-up display, and 360-degree camera. The B5 Momentum omits these features, while the audio system is handled by Harman Kardon.

As with all Volvos, both variants of the 2022 Volvo XC60 facelift get the whole ADAS suite of IntelliSafe with AEB, LKA, CTA, BLIS, Oncoming Lane Mitigation, and Run-off Road Mitigation. There’s also Pilot Assist, a level 2 semi-autonomous driving feature which can give steering assistance from stationary up to 140 km/h.

The 2022 Volvo XC60 facelift comes with a 5-year unlimited mileage vehicle warranty, and 8-year/160,000 km warranty for the plug-in hybrid battery.
