Volvo Cars Refreshes XC60 for 2022; Shows Off Scalable Infotainment, Safety Systems

Volvo Cars is putting to production the 2022 XC60 this May, an updated version of their best-selling vehicle that now comes equipped with an Android-powered infotainment system with Google apps and services built in.

While major changes take place deep inside the XC60, designers have refreshed it with a new grille, bumpers, exterior color and wheel options. For the interior, new materials including a leather-free option has been made available.

On to the biggest change, the XC60’s infotainment system now offers better personalization and connectivity.

The centerpiece of this Digital Services package is access to Google apps and services, which offer hands-free help with Google Assistant, navigation through Google Maps, and a broad offer of native in-car apps via Google Play.

Volvo Cars is the first company to team up with Google on integrating an infotainment system powered by Android with Google apps and services built in, and after years of close development between the two companies, the fully electric XC40 Recharge became the first Volvo car to carry the system.

In terms of safety upgrades, the XC60 now comes equipped with the latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform, a modern, scalable active safety system that consists of an array of radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors.

This platform enables the development and deployment of active safety systems in the XC60, such as the detection of other road users, automatic braking and collision avoidance. It also allows for gentle driver support from standstill up to highway speeds, through the Pilot Assist function.

For more than a decade, the XC60 has been ever-present in the top tier of one of the most competitive segments on the market. It has been Volvo Cars’ top seller since 2009, and up until 2020, it has reached over 1.68 million units sold worldwide.

In 2020 alone, the XC60 reached almost 200,000 units sold and accounted for nearly 29 percent of Volvo Cars’ total sales. In terms of market share, it was the most popular car in the European mid-size premium SUV segment, and took its place in the top five in the same segment globally.

With a World Car of the Year title in 2018 as one of its most prominent achievements, the XC60 has been lauded with global awards over the last decade, in categories ranging from design to safety.
