2012 Volvo XC90 Gets Minor Updates, Drops V-8 Model

Sep 7, 2011
One of Volvo's best-selling vehicles receives minor revisions to both inside and out, while cutting loose the unique 60-degree V-8 model from the lineup. This could possibly mean a turbocharged 3.0-liter from the S60 and S80 could eventually be added as an upgrade, but no official word has been given yet.

Now appearing on the XC90's exterior are daytime running lights on the lower bumper, along with new lower door moldings, and a redesigned silver metallic bumper bar. Revisions to the rear include new taillights and LED brake lights, with new silver matte 18-inch wheels completing the look. The tailgate now has a new leather grab handle, and the load cover has also been redesigned. Silver roof rails now come standard on all variants.
Further enhancements the interior include a new steering wheel design, aluminum accents, and a watch dial-inspired design with white lighting on the center stack. Volvo's On Call system can now be combined with Bluetooth, which comes standard on all trim levels.

The sportier XC90 R-Design also gets refreshed with redesigned upholstery, door panels, inlays, and new 19-inch wheels.
Mechanically, the 3.2-liter 240-hp six-cylinder engine carries over, while the V8 model gets the axe.
