2013 Volvo XC90 Preview

Follow Viknesh

Having first been launched back in 2002, the Volvo XC90 is now one of the oldest models currently in production.

Nevertheless, the mid-size luxury crossover will have to soldier on for at least another year, possibly more, though at least it’s receiving some updates along the way.

The changes to the 2013 Volvo XC90 include subtle refinements to exterior and interior, though you’d have to look twice to notice them.

Additionally, the latest XC90 will also allow owners to stay in touch with the vehicle via a new mobile application for the Apple iPhone or any Android smartphone. Some of the features include a “Car Locator,” a “Remote Heater Start,” an electronic “Vehicle Dashboard,” and a “Car Check” diagnostic tool.

New LED daytime running lights give the front more character, and are joined by new lower door moldings, a revised front bumper, and silver roof rails as standard on all variants. The tail lamps have also been updated with LED detailing, and a unique six-spoke 18-inch wheel design with a silver matte finish is also available.

Inside, there are new premium materials including a redesigned three-spoke steering wheel, aluminum trim, and watch dial-inspired instrument designs with white lighting. The tailgate is now divided into an upper and a lower section, and it comes with a new leather grab handles.

Note, the 2013 Volvo XC90 is also available with a sporty R-Design package or luxurious Executive package, adding new seats, interior trim and custom wheels.

The global engine lineup consists of a single gasoline unit and two diesels: a 3.2-liter naturally aspirated gas engine with 243 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, a five-cylinder turbodiesel with 200 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, and a smaller five-cylinder turbodiesel with 163 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque.
