2021 Volvo V90 R Design Facelift – New update to the 2021 year model, Volvo is preparing to update the rest of the 2021 Volvo V90 R series family starting with the Volvo V90, which has been caught undergoing testing by our spy photographer. And like all Volvo facelifts, the changes are so small, you will find it hard to find the difference. The Volvo V90 has been on sale for three years now, so the time seems about right for the mid-cycle update. Up front, the bumper has been covered with tape hiding air intakes and fog lights, indicating it will have a slightly different shape and design and maybe a new fog light. At the rear, a small portion of the taillights that extend into the trunk have also been closed, so they will likely have updated graphics. Elsewhere, the bottom of the bumper is covered.

Major changes tend to be found under the hood. For the 2021 XC90, Volvo adds a Formula 1 style kinetic energy recovery braking system that is sold under its new ‘B’ badge which offers up to 15 percent fuel and reduced emissions in real world driving. Volvo has confirmed this system will be offered for all 60 and 90 series cars, so that the V90 and S90 will get the same technical updates. Initially, the energy recovery system will only be available on the Twin-Engine T8 electric engine, which combines a 2.0 liter four-cylinder four-cylinder engine with a hybrid system producing a combined 400 HP and 472 lb-ft of torque.
Inside, facelifted V90 must also get an updated Infotainment system with Android Auto and help drivers such as Oncoming Lane mitigation, City Safety with Autobrake, and the Alert Traffic Cross system. Expect the 2021 Volvo V90 and S90 to lift their faces to debut at a time in 2021.
