The new Volvo XC60 was recently spied testing in India, suggesting that the Swedish company is gearing up to launch the SUV in the country by the end of this year. The spied images, published by Autocar India, give some idea about the design language as well as some of the exterior features. The upcoming Volvo XC60 is expected to be equipped with air suspension and large 19-inch alloy wheels. Bowers & Wilkins infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and Navigation as well as Nappa leather seat upholstery and heads-up display are likely to come fitted inside the cabin. One of the major new features on the soon to launch Volvo XC60 SUV is likely to be a radar-based safety system, which is also available on the Volvo XC90.

In terms of engine options, the new XC60, when launched in India, is expected to be powered by a 2.0-litre D5 diesel unit that will generate 235 hp of maximum power. The engine will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and will send the power to the all-wheel-drive system that will come as standard. It is also expected that the car manufacturer might also launch a less powerful D4 diesel engine with 190 hp that also powers the Volvo S90 sedan as well as the T6 petrol unit with 320 hp and a T8 Twin-Engine petrol-hybrid with 407 hp of power.
