2023 Volvo Lineup Updates
The entry-level Volvo XC40 and the top-spec XC90 are the models bringing in the big changes for the 2023 model year. The XC40 is priced at Rs 45.90 lakhs but for the festive period will be available for Rs 43.20 lakhs. The Volvo XC90 is priced at Rs 94.90 lakhs (all prices are ex-showroom).
The interiors of the Volvo XC90 remain mostly untouched but sports a new 12.3-inch driver’s display and new ADAS features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Pilot Assist, Lane Keeping Aid, Blind Spot Information System with Cross traffic alert, Collision Mitigation Support (front & rear) and Parking Assistance (front & rear)..
The Volvo XC40 is offered in one trim level – B4 Ultimate – which comes powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine coupled with a 48V mild hybrid setup that is good for 197bhp and 300Nm of peak torque. Power is sent to the front wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox.
The Volvo XC90, on the other hand, does not get any major cosmetic tweaks for the 2023 model year. The biggest update on the XC90 comes in the form of the new Android based infotainment display that packs Google’s Maps, Assistant and Play Store. This new infotainment system also supports wired Apple CarPlay.

Volvo also announced prices for the XC60 SUV and the S90 sedan which are priced at Rs 65.90 lakh and Rs 66.90 lakh respectively. Both vehicles use Volvo’s 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine with mild-hybrid assistance which puts out 250bhp in the XC60 and S90.
Thoughts About Volvo’s Updated 2023 Lineup
Volvo has updated its 2023 lineup for India and now only sells electrified vehicles in the country. While we wish Volvo had brought its strong hybrid tech to India, the move to a fully electrified lineup is still one that should be applauded as it is the first carmaker to make the change in the country till date.
