Volvo XC60 gets updated with Android infotainment & latest ADAS


Volvo has updated its XC60 crossover with new Android-powered infotainment system, latest ADAS, and new interior materials. The SUV will go into production in May 2021 and will go on sale later in the year as a 2022 model.


The Android-powered infotainment system comes with Google apps and services built-in, including Google Assistant, Google Maps, and the ability to add more in-car apps via Google Play. However, the Google apps and services can be accessed only after signing up for a Digital Services package; the hardware needed to run the services already exists in the car.

As for the new interior materials, buyers have leather-free options as well as the ‘City Weave’ textile upholstery.

Other updates include the latest version of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform consisting of an array of radars, cameras and ultrasonic sensors. The platform enables the development and deployment of active safety systems such as the detection of other road users, automatic braking and collision avoidance. It also allows for gentle driver support from standstill up to highway speeds, through the Pilot Assist function, Volvo said.

No mechanical changes. Depending on the market, the XC60 will be available in petrol, diesel, diesel mild-hybrid, and plug-in hybrid powertrains. The petrol-electric PHEV AWD variant claims a pure electric range of up to 53 km (33 mi).
