Volvo adds Android-based infotainment to XC60

LinkedIn +

Volvo Cars is introducing a range of upgrades to its XC60 mid-size SUV, including the addition of the company’s new Android-powered infotainment system with Google apps and services built in.

The manufacturer claims the next-generation infotainment system offers customers new levels of personalization and connectivity, which is further enhanced through the introduction of a new Digital Services package, the centerpiece of which is access to Google apps and services, offering hands-free help with Google Assistant, navigation through Google Maps and a broad range of native in-car apps via Google Play.

By signing up for a package, customers will gain access to all the services and features that are offered in the package – all hardware needed to run the services already exists in the car, and all the data required is included in the package.

The updated XC60 will go into production at the end of May. First UK deliveries are expected in June. UK pricing and specification details will be announced shortly.
