Volvo is the first brand to release data on its 11 2023 models
2022 is already halfway through, and automakers are finally releasing details on their upcoming 2023 models. Volvo is ahead of the game: the automaker has announced information about its entire 2023 lineup, and each vehicle offers a mild hybrid, plug-in hybrid or fully electric powertrain. Let’s review each model and see what’s new.
1. Volvo S60 2023 (sedan)
Volvo offers the S60 as both a mild hybrid and a PHEV. The latter gets up to 41 miles of range and up to 455 hp.
2. Volvo S90 2023 (sedan)
The S90 is similar to the S60 but has more interior space and a few extra standard features. Its base engine is also more powerful, with 295 hp. Like all other 2023 models, the S90 integrates the Google Assistant and the Maps application.
3. Volvo V60 2023 (wagon)
Volvo shows the V60 looks unchanged for 2023, minus a few updated styling cues. Mild-hybrid and PHEV powertrains are available, and both have standard all-wheel drive. The V60 offers generous passenger space and a premium cabin, making it a bargain at around $40,000.
4. Volvo V90 2023 (wagon)
The 2023 Volvo V90 is even longer than the V60, offering nearly three feet of rear legroom. The runners also have nearly 39 inches of headroom.
Its cargo capacity is actually smaller than the V60’s cargo area, but 54 cubic feet is still plenty. Standard power comes from a 250-horsepower turbo-four.
5. 2023 Volvo V60 Cross Country (wagon)
Volvo says its Cross Country variants are upgraded to include rear air suspension, a special off-road mode and hill descent control. It’s probably not suited for serious off-road riding, but the V60 Cross Country can probably handle light trail cruising.
6. 2023 Volvo V90 Cross Country (wagon)
The 2023 Volvo V90 Cross Country is the same as the V90 but with additional driving improvements. It also has Google features like the rest of its siblings, plus over-the-air updates.
7. 2023 Volvo XC40 (small crossover SUV)
This subcompact SUV starts at around $35,000. It comes standard with a smaller T4 engine, capable of 184 hp, and the optional T5 makes 248 hp. The Volvo XC40 is also the first model in the range to win European Car of the Year, according to VOLVO. With the T5 engine, the XC40 has an impressive towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
8. 2023 Volvo XC60 (small crossover SUV)
The 2023 XC60 is now fitted with Recharge tires as standard. Volvo claims that these tires require less energy, save fuel and reduce emissions. The XC60 has three powertrain options, with the most powerful T8 engine delivering 455bhp.
9. 2023 Volvo XC90 (midsize crossover SUV)
The XC90 is the automaker’s only three-row SUV, although Volvo still classifies it as a mid-size offering. It rolls on slightly larger wheels than the XC60, but most interior features are identical. PHEV models get 35 miles of electric-only driving.
10. 2023 Volvo XC40 Recharge (electric small crossover)
The XC40 Recharge is Volvo’s electric version of the XC40, with a redesigned bumper fitted with LED lighting. Single engine models have a range of 262 miles, while dual engine cars have a range of 223 miles. VOLVO says it only takes half an hour to charge 70% of the battery with fast charging.
11. 2023 Volvo C40 Recharge (electric small crossover)
Volvo calls the C40 Recharge its first fully electric car. This underrated crossover has a range of 225 miles and produces a combined 402 hp from its two standard electric motors. This SUV is much sportier than the XC40 Recharge, with a lower, sloping roofline and a 0-100 km/h time of less than 5 seconds.
