MIAS 2022: Volvo Electrifies XC60, XC90, And S90 (w/ Specs)

Volvo Philippines unveils its fresh line-up of electrified and boosted Volvos. The 2022 range consisting of the entire SPA family (XC60, XC90, and S90) marries aesthetic and functional upgrades headlined by the new Boost Hybrid engine range.

Previously known as the T6 engine, it’s now retitled as the B6 with the introduction of a 48-volt hybrid system that has an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) at its core. Paired with a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, it has a combined 313 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque.

In terms of styling, the 2022 range of Volvos comes with top-end trims and exterior enhancements. The Volvo XC60, for example, sports a revamped grille and front bumpers plus a sportier take with its unique R-Design styling details. On the other hand, the Volvo S90 executive sedan is made even more spacious and premium as Volvo Philippines brings in the long-wheelbase variant in the Inscription package. Volvo’s flagship luxury SUV, the XC90, is made even more magnificent with the added comfort and luxurious details that comes with the Inscription trim as well.

Volvo’s leadership in automotive safety is confirmed in the 2022 range. The SPA platform has resulted in the strongest Volvo cars to date because of the extensive use of boron steel and numerous safety systems designed to protect people inside and outside the car.

Volvo’s City Safety technology, standard across the line-up, combines automatic braking functionality and collision avoidance systems to cover a range of potential accident scenarios. In addition, City Safety is the only system on the market that detects pedestrians, cyclists, and large animals.

The 2022 Volvo range is priced as follows:
  • Volvo XC60 B6 R-Design Boost Hybrid – P 4,290,000
  • Volvo XC90 B6 Inscription Boost Hybrid – P 5,590,000
  • Volvo S90L B6 Inscription Boost Hybrid – P 4,415,000

  1. These are mild hybrids unlike the Lexus NX which is in the same class as XC60. The improvement in FC would be marginal. Volvo though should indicate the FC for these models.

  2. Will they have a press car of xc60 for you to review? im curious because for 4.3m it seems like it has everything from panoramic roof to audio system so im wondering where did they compromise

    1. No's even sourced from Europe, not China. Likely, they've reduced their profit on each vehicle + lower excise tax on hybrids helped them reduce their prices.

      As for press cars, they usually do. However, all cars shown at MIAS are all sold--they're waiting for supplies to stabilize before activating a demo.
