The 2021 Volvo XC90 has been updated with ADAS, new in-cabin features, and a new petrol engine. The new flagship SUV, however, completely misses out on a diesel drivetrain altogether.
The flagship Volvo SUV, the XC90, has been updated with a mild-hybrid powertrain and a host of new features. The updated Volvo XC90, however, has completely ditched the diesel mill altogether.
The 2021 XC90 gets a 2.0-litre turbo petrol motor, along with a mild-hybrid powertrain. The combined power output of the engine is marked at 296bhp and 420Nm, and the transmission is an eight-speed auto box mated to an all-wheel-drive system.
The cabin sees the addition of a head-up display, an air-purifier, heated seats with a massage function, and new Maroon Brown and Amber upholstery. The infotainment system now offers a wider suite of connected-car features. There is also a 19-speaker stereo system by Bowers and Wilkins.
The 2021 Volvo XC90 now gets ADAS (Adaptive Driver Assistance System), which includes adaptive cruise control, pilot assist, a lane-keep system, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic monitoring, front and rear collision mitigation, 360-degree cameras, and park assist.
The 2021 Volvo XC90 rivals the likes of the Range Rover Velar and Audi Q8. In some cases, the XC90 can be compared to the Mercedes-Benz GLE and the BMW X5.
