The XC60’s T5 and T6 powertrains have been dropped from the lineup this year and replaced with similar setups called B5 and B6, both of which utilize a 48-volt hybrid system; the plug-in hybrid T8 powertrain continues to


serve as the SUV’s top powertrain. Volvo is also replacing the XC60’s Sensus infotainment system with a more modern Google Android-based interface that’s borrowed from the electric XC40 Recharge. The screen is the same 9.0-inch vertically-oriented shape, but new software offers more personalization options, a voice-assistant feature,


and navigation via Google Maps. Several subtle styling changes help mark the 2022 model year as well, including a tweaked grille, a re-worked front bumper, updated wheel designs, and the introduction of Volvo’s City Weave cloth


upholstery as an option for the first time on the XC60. In addition to the styling refresh and the new infotainment, Volvo also says there have been upgrades to the XC60’s various radar, camera, and ultrasonic sensors that provide data for the SUV’s driver-assistance systems.
