Volvo models get across the range refresh and DAB radios (hurrah!)

Volvo have given their range a refresh by adding new trim levels and updating their existing cars.    The new Volvo S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70, S80 all get new front and rear profiles and extra equipment, including DAB digital radio as standard.  Good job too, analogue radios are soooo yesterday.

Options available on the new models include integrated exhaust pipes, TFT driver display and safety equipment including Cyclist Detection.

The S60, V60 and XC60 R-Design versions get the Volvo Special Vehicles Team treatment with a retuned chassis, sports seats and various bits of R-design trim.

A new 1.6 litre, 120bhp turbocharged petrol engine will be available in selected models and the existing D2 diesel sees reduced taxation levels and fuel consumption.

You can view the new Volvo range here.  Orders for the new models start now with deliveries arriving in July.

In other Volvo news we'll soon have a V40 T5 to test and will regularly update Twitter and Facebook with a full review to follow.
