Dubai, UAE, April 13, 2020: Volvo Cars reveals refreshed versions of the S90 sedan and the V90/V90 Cross Country estate models, including a refined exterior design and a brand new, state-of-the-art sound system by Bowers and Wilkins.
In a broader portfolio upgrade, the company’s 48 volt mild hybrid powertrain options will be available on every Volvo model from Q4 2020, further boosting the company’s electrified offer.
In terms of exterior design, Volvo designers have introduced a number of refinements on both the front and rear of the S90 and V90 which will be arriving in Q3 2020, including new fog lights, a new spoiler design and a new lower front bumper.
Inside, a comprehensively upgraded Bowers and Wilkins audio system introduces an even better in-car sound experience, thanks to new features like an upgraded amplifier, automatic vehicle noise cancellation and a new setting that mimics the sound of your favourite jazz club.
Another new feature inside is an Advanced Air Cleaner with a PM 2.5 particle sensor. First developed for the Chinese market and now rolled out globally, it allows drivers to monitor interior air quality via the centre screen. If desired, the Advanced Air Cleaner can clean the cabin air of almost all tiny particles, such as sand and dust, within a few minutes.
Both the new Bowers & Wilkins audio system and the Advanced Air Cleaner technology are now available on all 90 and 60 Series models based on the Scalable Product Architecture (SPA).
All models in the 90 and 60 Series now also come with double USB-C charging points in the rear, replacing the 12 volt outlets. The wireless charging functionality for smartphones, first introduced on the small XC40 SUV, is now also available on most variants in the 90 and 60 Series.
In terms of interior materials, the exclusive tailored wool blend seats first introduced on the XC90 last year are now also available on all 90 and 60 models, while there is also a leather-free interior option for the top trim levels.
Elsewhere in its model range, Volvo Cars is significantly expanding the number of its 48 volt mild hybrid powertrain options, making these engine options available on every single Volvo model from Q4 2020.
Volvo Cars’ mild hybrids offer drivers up to 15 per cent fuel savings and emission reductions in real world driving. The brake-by-wire system interacts with the energy recovery system and reduces fuel consumption and emissions by recovering kinetic energy under braking.
Together with the Recharge car line of plug-in hybrids and fully electric cars, this means there is now an electrified Volvo model for everyone.
