Volvo and Mercedes-Benz considering joint engine development - report

It's possible, one day in the not-too-distant future, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo cars will be sold with common petrol engines. According to a report in Automobilwoche (via Reuters), Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz, and Geely, which owns Volvo, could soon jointly develop internal combustion engines and, possibly, electric drivetrains too.

2020 Volvo S90 spied

Darcy Foster • A facelifted version of the Volvo S90 has been spied testing in public. Though the lower half of the front fascia is disguised in a vinyl wrap, an updated grille more in line with the V60 wagon and S60 sedan can be spotted, while an LED matrix lighting system appears to round off changes at the front.

2021 Volvo XC40 Recharge: Brand's first electric vehicle here 2021 - UPDATED

UPDATE: The latest local launch times for the XC40 Recharge EV and plug-in hybrid have been added to the bottom of this article. The Volvo XC40 Recharge, the company's first electric car, was unveiled overnight. Based on the standard XC40 and its Compact Modular Architecture, there's little to visually differentiate the all-electric Recharge from those with an internal combustion engine.

Volvo Australia introduces capped-price servicing

Volvo Car Australia has introduced capped-price servicing across its range, addressing one of the biggest concerns about its SUVs, wagons and sedans. The new plans pull Volvo's maintenance pricing into closer alignment with BMW, although the German brand is still cheaper. Three years or 45,000km of servicing for the S60, V60 and XC40 is priced at $1595, and it'll cost $1795 to maintain the petrol XC60 and XC90. Servicing for the XC60, XC90 and V90 Cross Country diesels costs $1895.

2020 Volvo V90 facelift spied

The updated Volvo V90 wagon has been spied at a car park in the European Alps, and the changes seem to be fairly minor as there's only a little bit of disguise at both ends. Up front the lower section of the bumper has a straighter design, and there's a bit of black tape hiding some minor revisions for the fog light area and fake air intake. The grille slats also seem to have a more concave design, similar to the units found on the facelifted XC90 crossover.
