  • The updated 2022 Volvo XC60 features a new infotainment system and a tweaked design.

  • The touchscreen now runs the company's Android-based connectivity software.

  • Expect to see the 2022 XC60 arrive at U.S. dealers this summer.

Volvo is freshening up the XC60 for 2022 with design and technology updates. The compact SUV looks slightly different than before and has a new infotainment system, and there are minor changes to the driver-assistance systems and interior trim as well.

The XC60's vertically oriented touchscreen now runs Volvo's Android-based infotainment system, as first seen in Polestar models and the electric XC40 Recharge. This software runs apps such as Google Maps for navigation and Google Play for music. Other tech upgrades include upgraded sensors, radars, and cameras for the various driver-assistance systems.

Visual changes are subtle and include a reshaped grille and front bumper, along with new wheel designs and newly available exterior colors. There are new interior materials available as well.

We don't expect to see any changes to the XC60's available powertrains. In the U.S. it offers T5, T6, and T8 models, all of which are powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four. The T5's version of this engine has a turbocharger and makes 250 horsepower; the T6 adds a supercharger for a total of 316 horsepower; and the T8 is a plug-in hybrid with electric motors that produces a total output of 400 horsepower.

Pricing for the 2022 XC60 is not yet available but it will likely rise slightly compared with the current model, which starts at $42,795 and ranges up to $70,595 for a T8 with Polestar performance upgrades.
