Volvo has updated its S60 sedan, V60 station wagon and XC60 crossover, but you probably already know about that since we showed you pictures of the facelifted models on Monday. Now, besides sharing a full gallery, including images of the interiors of the aforementioned models, the Swedish carmaker has also released technical details.
The common theme of the exterior makeover on all three models is the new and the more understated front fascia that drops the auxiliary lights positioned between the headlamps and grille, both of which have been redesigned.
Newly sculpted front and rear bumpers, different exhaust pipes, optionally available 19- and 20-inch wheels, and revised tail lamp graphics round out the changes outside.
Stepping in the cabin, there are a number of common upgrades on all three models, such as new upholstery colours, new trim inlays, a new headliner, and frames around the air vents and light controls, plus a new TFT instrument panel with a large center gauge, similar in design to that found in the new V40 hatchback.
Notable equipment upgrades include the addition of Corner Traction Control on all XC60 models, revised infotainment systems with a 7-inch display, available heated steering wheel and paddle shifters, new Active High Beam Control and an electrically heated windscreen for rapid de-icing on cars equipped with a rain sensor.
Volvo has also tweaked the petrol and diesel engines in all three models to improve fuel economy and CO2 emissions.
For example, the D2 115PS diesel engine in the S60 returns 4.0lt/100km (70.6mpg UK) with CO2 emissions of 106g/km, while the S60 with the 1.6-litre GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) engine T4 (180PS) or T3 (150PS) and automatic gearbox now returns 6.8lt/100km or 41.5mpg UK (159 g/km). The corresponding figure for the V60 T3 and T4 is 7.2lt/100km 39.2mpg UK (167 g/km).
The refreshed Volvo models will be on display at the Geneva Motor Show.
