Volvo has equipped the XC90 with an advanced kinetic energy-recovery braking system. The system is mated to its existing internal combustion engine to create a new electrified powertrain under the 'B' badge. The manufacturer claims that the new powertrain hikes the efficiency by 15 per cent which will add a range of 30 to 35 kilometres and reduces emissions in real-world driving conditions. The added tech is available in the Top T8 Twin Engine petrol-plug-in hybrid which now makes 420PS instead of the current 407PS.

The styling has received minor tweaks in the grille and the newly designed alloy wheels are on offer. The 2020 XC90 will be offered in different colour schemes. The infotainment system was earlier equipped with Apple Car Play but for the newer model has gone through many updates and now features Android Auto as well. Spotify music streaming service is integrated with the XC90's infotainment system.

The feature list is updated with lane mitigation system and the Cross Traffic Alert technology now also offers auto brake. In terms of active safety technology, the XC90's city safety and blind spot information system now get steering assist.

The 2020 Volvo XC90 is available in three different configurations for seating passengers. Four seat Excellence variant and the seven-seat family SUV to the newly introduced six-seat configuration. The materials used for the interior include wood blend and offer further options for personalisation.

The model year 2020 version of the XC90 will go in production in May at the Torslanda plant in Sweden and is now available to order in all Volvo markets around the globe.
