2021 Volvo XC60 will be getting some intelligent updates which includes the addition of the company’s new Android-powered infotainment system with Google apps and services built in, making the Volvo best-seller smarter than ever before.
Inside the new next generation infotainment system, it offers customers extra personalisation and connectivity, which is further enhanced through the introduction of a brand-new Digital Services package. The Digital Services package allow owners to access Google apps and services, which offer hands-free help with Google Assistant, best-in-class navigation through Google Maps and a broad offer of native in-car apps via Google Play.
By signing up for a Digital Services package, customers will gain access to all services and features offered in the package. All hardware needed to run the services already exists in the car, and all data required is included in the package.
Volvo Car Group is the first company to team up with Google on integrating an infotainment system powered by Android with Google apps and services built in. This is the result of years of close development between the two companies, the fully electric XC40 Recharge was the first Volvo car to carry the system. With this update, it makes thes XC60 the next vehicle to get this update.
In terms of safety upgrades, the XC60 now comes equipped with Volvo Cars’ latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) sensor platform, a modern, scalable active safety system that consists of an array of radars, cameras and ultrasonic sensors.
This platform enables the development and deployment of active safety systems in the XC60, such as the detection of other road users, and automatic braking and collision avoidance. It also allows for gentle driver support from standstill up to highway speeds, through the Pilot Assist function.
While major changes take place deep inside the XC60, the company’s designers have also made a number of subtle refinements to the exterior design, including a new grille, new front bumpers, and new exterior colour and wheel options.
New interior materials, including luxurious leather-free options as well as the availability of the City Weave textile upholstery, offer further possibilities for personalisation.
