The 2023 Volvo XC60 is ready for additional mild upgrades. It should be out later this year, and it should start at around $42,000. A lot of people say that the new Volvo XC60 will get some small changes that should make it look better.
We also expect a new infotainment system and a lot of optional features to be added to the SUV’s look. In the future, the XC60 will again try to compete with other luxury models, including Lexus NX, BMW X3, and Mercedes-Benz GLC.
Volvo XC60 Cosmetic Upgrades
The upcoming 2023 Volvo XC60 is going to get a little bit of a makeover. Mostly, the front and back fascias will wear the latest upgrades. You can see a grille design that’s been changed on this model, just like on the new XC90 model, which just came out.
You can change the look of this SUV a little if you buy one of the higher trim levels. For example, if you choose the R-Design variant, you’ll get an incredibly sporty look because it has more chrome and black accents. As before, Swedish carmakers will also offer high-end models, but even the base trim level is very premium in our opinion.
The next 2023 Volvo XC60 has a lot of nice materials that look like those in more expensive Volvos. In general, the interior is quiet and comfortable, with adult-sized space in both rows. The new XC60 will have the same amount of space for five people as its predecessor.
All XC60 models come with a large 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system. If you buy a new car, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, as well as Bluetooth connectivity and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot that you can use. Generally, Volvo XC60 provides a lot of premium stuff, a high level of comfort, and more than decent passenger room.
When it comes to performance, the 2023 Volvo XC60 will have a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine combined with a 48-volt mild-hybrid system. This output will generate almost 250 horsepower and it will use a standard FWD configuration. In the B6 variant, the same engine will be used, but the manufacturer added an electric supercharger that boosts the output to 295 horses. It’s good to say that both of these engines are powerful, and both of them get a lot of mileage.
There are Recharge models at the very top of the XC60 range. The XC60 Recharge comes with either 4-cylinder engines that are turbocharged or supercharged and two electric motors. If you choose the right model, you can get 400 to 415 horsepower. In this model, Volvo says that with a battery pack under the floor, it can go 18 miles on electricity only.
2023 Volvo XC60 Price, Release Date
The forthcoming 2023 Volvo XC60 will most likely go out later this year, with a mid-cycle refresh. It will look better and have a better cabin. We think the XC60 SUV will start at about $43,000 and the range-topping trim level will surely cost around $70k.
