We reported in detail when it emerged that Swedish car maker Volvo is working on the next generation of XC 90 crossover. The new XC 90 is slated to be unveiled towards the end of next year.
Volvo has now updated a large portion of its passenger car line up and Volvo claims that the recent facelift exercise carried out on most of its cars is “the most extensive development of existing models” in the firm’s history.
The 3 series rivalling S60 sedan, XC60 SUV and S80 luxury saloon get a new front fascia and a longer features list. The S60 also gets an option of a lowered sports chassis for all variants.
Other than the revised exterior, the very stylish S60 also gets new interior trim and adaptive cornering lights.
The S80 flagship sedan too gets revised interiors with the inclusion of a new luxury ‘Executive’ interior package that adds new trim options to the car’s interiors.
The very popular XC60 gets torque vectoring as a standard feature.
The updated models feature design cues borrowed from Volvo Concept You concept which was previewed at the 2011 Frankfurt motor show.
All the updated cars also get Volvo’s new Sensus Connected Touch multimedia system. The new system provides full internet access, internet radio, Google maps & search and internet music streaming. The system pairs with driver’s mobile phone for gaining internet access. The seven-inch touchscreen can be operated even when the user is wearing gloves.
The updated cars also get a TFT instrument panel from the V40. The automatic variants of these cars also get steering mounted paddle shifters and S80, V70 and XC70 can be bought with heated steering
