Inside, the cabin for both facelifted models remain similar, but they now come equipped with Volvo’s latest Android infotainment system. It features Google apps, Google Assistant, and Volvo’s ‘Digital Services’ package. Both models also get an air purifier, a ‘Volvo Cars’ App for features including remote lock/unlock and charging status (for upcoming Volvo EVs), and blind spot monitoring. Volvo will offer a 3-year service warranty package at Rs 75,000 for both the models.

The main change for the S90 and XC60 is under the hood. Powering them is a 2-litre petrol engine with a 48V mild hybrid system for torque assist and better fuel efficiency. The powertrain makes 250PS and 350Nm of torque for both the sedan and SUV. 

 

With this, the facelifted Volvo S90 sedan will rekindle its rivalry with the  Audi A6, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, and BMW 5 Series. The updated XC60 SUV on the other hand takes on the Mercedes-Benz GLC, BMW X3, and the soon-to-be-launched Audi Q5.
