Facelifted Volvo XC90 bags KERS, subtle visual cues

The cabin also gets some attention

Volvo’s best-selling SUV gets a minor nip and tuck, but don’t expect fireworks.

Come to think of it, the XC90 doesn’t really need too much visual alterations as the package presents itself as well-rounded as it is.

However, Volvo saw fit to introduce a short list of visual add-ons, including new body colors, wheel designs and a mildly tweaked front grille. Good luck spotting the differences.

Elsewhere, Thor’s Hammer headlights are still there, just like the engine lineup.

What’s changed, however, is the introduction of a kinetic energy recovering braking system, or KERS, which is compatible with the existent internal combustion engines and whose presence is highlighted by the B badging.

Inside, Volvo says it added new materials but also the possibility of choosing between a configuration with four, six or seven seats.

Tech-wise, the main addition is represented by the Oncoming Lane Mitigation feature that initially debuted on the XC60 SUV.
