Volvo Updates S90, V90 With New Look, Mild Hybrid

2021 Volvo V90 Cross Country

Much of Volvo’s lineup includes some type of electrified powertrain option — from the all-electric XC40 SUV to plug-in options and mild-hybrid setups — and now the automaker is expanding the technology to the V90 Cross Country wagon.

Volvo began rolling out its mild-hybrid powertrain in the 2020 XC90 large SUV, followed by the XC60 compact SUV, and the V90 Cross Country will use the same system. According to Volvo, the models’ 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain and kinetic energy recovery braking system offers drivers up to 15% fuel savings and emissions reductions in real-world driving.

Other updates to the V90 and S90 include a new lower front bumper, new spoiler design and new foglights. V90 and V90 Cross Country models also wear a new light design in back with full LED-powered signature lighting.

Inside, there’s a new available Bowers & Wilkins audio system, as well as wireless charging and updated USB-C ports. Volvo also said the tailored wool-blend seats first introduced on the XC90 are now available on all 90 and 60 models, as well as a leather-free interior option, which is available on the top trim of each.

No word yet on when the new models are coming. Volvo announced the updates to the S90 and V90 in a global news release but said only that the refreshed models will be available in many markets.
