Volvo S60 / V60 facelift: introduction of Google in-car infotainment system, 7-speed DCT transmission for B3 / B4 models

Must read

Following in the footsteps of the XC60 and XC40, Volvo has unannounced a minor facelift for the S60 and V60 models. The focus of the facelift is on minor exterior refinements and the introduction of the new Google in-car infotainment system developed by Volvo and Google. The B3 and B4 models are now available with a 7-speed DCT dual-clutch manual transmission with unknown Harga Volvo S60.

The minor changes to the exterior of the S60 and V60 are minor. The most obvious differences are the removal of the front fog lamps from the sides of the front bumper, the hidden exhaust tailpipes from the rear bumper and some changes to the detailing, as well as the introduction of the new six-spoke two-tone wheels, which are the most eye-catching feature of the car.

The 9″ touchscreen in the centre console follows in the footsteps of the XC60 and incorporates Google’s in-car infotainment system, which is based on the Android Automotive OS operating system, allowing access to Google Maps, Google Play and other applications without the need for a receiver. Google Maps, Google Play and Google Assistant are also fully supported.

The B3, B4, B5 and B6 AWD models are all powered by 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engines with 48V light fuel and electric systems, with maximum horsepower of 163, 197, 250 and 300 hp in that order, but the B3 and B4 models use a seven-speed DCT dual-clutch manual transmission in return for better fuel consumption and emissions. The B5 and B6 models continue to use the 8-speed manual transmission. The V60 is also available with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine with the same 197 hp as the B4 petrol model, but with 42.8 kgm of torque.

The Recharge T6 AWD and Recharge T8 AWD models with plug-in hydropower systems have a combined output of 350 hp and 455 hp respectively; the most powerful S60 T8 Recharge can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds, and the V60 T8 Recharge in estate configuration can also do so in 4.9 seconds. The V60 T8 Recharge is also capable of accelerating from 0-100km/h in 4.9 seconds, but the top speed is limited to 180km/h, just like the other models.
