Shortly after unveiling the 2022 Volvo XC60, the Swedish car manufacturer has confirmed that the S90 and V90 models will also be updated with the new Android-powered infotainment system for the 2022 model year.
The new system includes Google apps and services built-in and was first used by the fully-electric XC40 Recharge, unveiled in 2019.
The Google integration provides drivers with access to Google Assistant that responds to voice commands, allowing motorists to maintain their focus on the road. Key functions accessible through the Google Assistant include temperature control, setting a destination, player music and podcasts, and sending messages.
In addition, the Android-powered infotainment system offers various applications through the Google Play store and includes Google Maps with up-to-date map and traffic data.
Volvo has also introduced the Digital Services package for the 2022 model year, adding the Volvo On Call app and a wireless phone charger. Furthermore, 2022 Volvo S90, V90, and V90 Cross Country models will land with the carmaker’s latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems made up of an array of radars, cameras, and ultrasonic sensors. This system provides semi-autonomous driving and is functional from a standstill up to highway speeds.
While the 2022 Volvo S90 and V90 have yet to be officially presented, they will probably be tweaked in line with 2022 XC60, meaning some tweaks could be made to the front grille, bumpers, and wheels. The new ‘City Weave’ textile upholstery of the 2022 XC60 could also be used by the refreshed S90 and V90.
