2019 Volvo XC90 Breaks Cover, Expected To Launch This Year

  • Feb 27, 2019

Volvo has revealed the 2019 XC90 globally, which is expected to be launched in the second half of the ongoing year in India. The new XC90 has been revised cosmetically, with some changes on the outside and subtle ones inside. Additionally, the company has included a new powertrain option, mild hybrid.

The 2019 XC90 gets a new front grille, a new set of alloy wheels and new exterior colours for the customers to choose from. Inside, there is an option to choose for a ‘wool blend’ interior material that upscales the overall appeal of the cabin. Moreover, the new XC90 will now be offered with six seats, two in all three rows. This doesn’t mean that the company has dumped previous seating options. The XC90 will still hold the options of a four-seat and seven-seat configuration.

Volvo has included a new powertrain for the XC90, mild hybrid which carries a badge ‘B’. The new tech will be offered with currently in place IC engines resulting in lower fuel consumption by up to 15% and lower emissions. The XC90 will, however, continue to come with the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain option, like before.

Just like the XC60, the new Volvo XC90 will also get the Oncoming Mitigation system, which automatically applies brakes if it senses oncoming vehicle driving towards your car. Additionally, the Volvo XC90 will come with an updated Sensus infotainment system with Android Auto support.

Volvo, however, hasn’t revealed the powertrain options and specifications for the Indian market. Currently, the Volvo XC90 diesel retails at a starting price of Rs 80.9 lakh in India, while the plug-in hybrid starts from Rs 1.31 crore (both prices ex-showroom Delhi). The 2019 Volvo XC90 is expected to be launched in the second half of this year with an approximate starting price of around Rs 81 lakh, which falls in the same price band as the current version. On the other hand, if the XC90 mild-hybrid B makes its way to the Indian market, then expect it to be priced somewhere around the same range as well.
