The Volvo XC90 has been given a heart transplant for 2022.

The long-running seven-seater has been overhauled with a range of mild-hybrid powertrains, three trim levels, and the same gently refreshed exterior introduced in 2020.

Gone are the T- and D- badged models, replaced with a choice of B5 and B6-badged mild-hybrid petrols, along with the Recharge plug-in hybrid.

Prices range from $86,990 before on-road costs for the B5 Momentum to $116,990 before on-roads for the Recharge.

Update, 9/8/21 9:20am: We’ve amended the MY22 price list as per Volvo Australia’s MRRP. The 0-100 time has also been clarified for B5 and B6 variants. See article for details
