Volvo is rolling out a new specialized package to offer customers more luxury in two of their models.
Buyers of the XC60 and S80 can equip their cars with the upgrade, known as the inscription package. It includes Inscription Sovereign Hide leather seats, a leather covered instrument panel, wood inlays, and an embroidered Inscription logo along with unique floor mats. Three different paint finishes, crystal white pearl, electric silver or ember black, are available with the package along with 19- or 20-inch ten spoke wheels.
The package won’t affect performance, but Volvo also announced that every vehicle in its lineup can now be had with a Drive-E engine. This lineup of four-cylinder engines use turbocharging or a combination of turbocharging and supercharging to deliver equivalent power to today’s larger engines, all while being more efficient.
In the U.S., the Drive-E lineup consists of a a 2.0-liter I4 producing 240 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and a turbocharged and supercharged 2.0-liter making 302 hp and 295 lb-ft.
Volvo is also upgrading the infotainment unit in all of its 2014 cars, except the XC90. Each Volvo vehicle is now fit with Sensus Connect with Volvo On-call, which allows driver’s to find and pay for parking from the car, find new restaurants and stream internet radio among other things.
