EXTERIOR

Similar to the new facelifted Volvo S90 Recharge T8 executive sedan, the exterior changes on the new Volvo XC60 are incredibly minimal. One would really need to place both the outgoing and new XC60 models side-by-side to notice the changed items.

As always, the bumper designs gets tweaked, blending better with the rest of the updated line-up. The rear bumper now has a smooth finishing without any exhaust tips, while the front includes a new grille design and larger decorative trim pieces at the corners.

INTERIOR

The biggest update in the new Volvo XC60 is the interior. However, the images alone do not communicate anything, as the new 9-inch portrait infotainment system is now powered by Android Automotive OS.
