Volvo XC90 Launched At INR 89.9 Lakh
Volvo has committed to introducing new hybrid vehicles in the country, with the XC60 and S90 being the first vehicles to do so. Volvo has decided to give its flagship SUV, the XC90, the hybrid treatment. It’s worth noting that the XC90 already had a hybrid drivetrain. Volvo, on the other hand, has abandoned the diesel engine. The XC90 mild hybrid is available in a single fully-loaded Inscription trim for 89.9 lakh.
There have been no alterations to the design of the XC90. The T-shaped “Thor’s Hammer” DRL lights in the headlamps, which accentuate the dramatic new front fascia, are the most noticeable feature of the design. The rest of the design has a boxy feel to it, harkening back to the boxy Volvos of the past. The front of the car features a waterfall grille with the Volvo emblem adorning it. The entire design is clean and basic, which has its own beauty. Onyx Black, Crystal White Pearl, Denim Blue, and Pine Grey are the four colors available for the XC90.
The Volvo XC90 has a 12.3-inch completely digital instrument cluster, a portrait-oriented touchscreen with smartphone compatibility, a 1400W 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, an air quality system with a PM 2.5 filter, four-zone climate control, and a panoramic sunroof as standard equipment. It has several safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, pilot assist, blind-spot recognition, a 360-degree camera, and park assist, because it is a Volvo.
The D5 engine, which produces 235 horsepower, is no longer available in the redesigned XC90. It now has a 3-liter turbo-petrol engine that delivers 300 horsepower. A 48V mild-hybrid system with torque assist is also available. It’s paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels.
“With the launch of the Volvo XC90, we have released three new petrol mild-hybrid cars this quarter,” said Jyoti Malhotra, Managing Director, Volvo Car India. The customer’s trust in our brand has given us the courage to offer them technologically advanced new models. This launch underlines our commitment to making the switch from diesel to petrol, as well as our unrestricted plan for expanding the Indian market.”
