Meet the refreshed Volvo XC90

Meet the refreshed Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 - one of the world’s most highly acclaimed sports utility vehicles (SUVs) - has just got even better! It’s been treated to a design and features refresh, and it’s emerged as an even more enticing proposition.

According to Greg Maruszewski, Managing Director of Volvo Car South Africa, the very latest XC90 boasts a number of exterior and interior tweaks, such as new wheels, new exterior colours and a modern new grille.  Significantly, it also comes in a brand new six-seat configuration.

The 2020 XC90 comes standard with Volvo On Call, an innovative app-based service that helps motorists to communicate with their cars. It facilitates a multitude of tasks: motorists can lock or unlock the doors to their car, check the fuel level and cool or heat their car – all via their smartphone, smartwatch, tablet or desktop. It also provides an in-car WiFi hotspot, which can be accessed by everyone in the car. Volvo On Call is free of charge for five years. Thereafter, it can be extended for a fee.

Luxurious interior

When the all-new XC90 debuted in 2015, it had the most luxurious interior ever designed for a Volvo. Precisely the same applies to the latest model. The interior combines materials such as soft leather and wood with handcrafted details, including a gear lever made of crystal glass from Orrefors, the famous Swedish glassmaker, on the T8 Inscription derivative. The interior design now includes two USB ports as standard as well as a telematics unit with a P-Sim card slot.

New seat configurations

The 2020 XC90 can be ordered with a range of different seating configurations. From the seven-seat family SUV, to the brand new six-seat configuration, the XC90 has been created to best fits people’s preferences and lifestyles. New interior materials including a slate grey upholstery and new décor inlays offer further options for personalisation.

World-class features

The XC90 features one of the top audio systems available in the automotive world. Produced by Bowers & Wilkins, it boasts a 1 476-Watt Class D amplifier and 19 speakers.

The 2020 XC90 comes with an arsenal of safety features – from Run-Off Road Mitigation/Protection to City Safety with Autobrake which recognises pedestrians, cyclists and large animals.


The new XC90 offers a range of two-litre, four-cylinder diesel and petrol powertrains, all of which provide an outstanding combination of performance and fuel-efficiency. These powertrains are coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission.


Volvo Car South Africa is also launching a new R-Design version of its award-winning XC90. The outside of the car is distinguished by 20-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, black door mirrors and a gloss black mesh front grille.

The 2020 XC90 will be available on dealer showroom floors now. Suggested retail pricing starts at R1,023,700 for the XC90 T5 Geartronic AWD Momentum.
