Volvo XC60's visual facelift in Malaysia in 2021, featuring mild hybrid B5 and Android Automotive operating system;  prices range from RM292k to RM325k

For the Malaysian market, both variants get 19-inch alloys albeit in different designs; the B5 gets a five-Y-spoke black diamond-cut wheel set, while the T8 gets a multi-spoke black diamond-cut wheel set. This means that the B5 Momentum variant now steps up an inch in wheel diameter and wears 235/40R19 tyres, while the top T8 Inscription Plus trim continues to wear 235/55R19 tyres. The subtle set of updates to the XC60 exterior is joined by a new infotainment system built on the Android Automotive OS which premiered on the fully electric XC40, which brings to the XC60 a Digital Services Package consisting of voice-activated Google Assistant.

The 2021 Volvo XC60 facelift is now available in Malaysia, with prices starting at RM292,266.50 for the mild-hybrid B5 Momentum and RM325,449.00 for the plug-in hybrid Recharge T8 Inscription Plus. Prices are for on-the-road without insurance in Peninsular Malaysia, and include a sales tax exemption that has been extended until June 30, 2022. The Inscription grille with chrome frame and external features with chrome detailing, including the integrated roof rails with a bright finish, distinguish the two variants of the facelifted XC60; the B5 Momentum gets roof rails in a black finish. The T8 gets complete LED headlamps with Active High Beam and active bending lights, while the B5 gets LED headlights with Active High Beam but no active bending lights.

This controls in-car applications such as Google Maps for hands-free operation, and is joined by the Volvo Car App and connected services which enables the user to have remote control over selected functions. This includes pre-setting of climate control, checking of the car’s status, locking and unlocking of doors, and more. Both the B5 Momentum and Recharge T8 Inscription Plus powertrain variants use a 2.0 litre four-cylinder petrol engine; the unit in the B5 is a mild-hybrid Drive-E engine which produces 249 hp at 5,500 rpm and 350 Nm of torque from 1,500 rpm to 4,800 rpm.

Meanwhile, the T8 PHEV powertrain does without the 48-volt mild-hybrid form of drive assistance but adds a supercharger to the proceedings for 299 hp and 400 Nm of torque, and together with its 86 hp/240 Nm rear electric motor, brings a total system output of 407 hp and 640 Nm of torque. The PHEV variant uses a 11.6 kWh lithium-ion battery that is good for 45 km of range in purely electric driving. Both powerplants are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, with the 0-100 km/h sprint done in 6.9 seconds in the B5 Momentum, and in 5.2 seconds in the Recharge T8 Inscription Plus. Fuel consumption on the combined cycle is 7.6 l/100 km for the B5 Momentum, and 2.2 l/100 km for the Recharge T8 Inscription Plus.
