Spy pics show that there are hardly any changes made to the exterior design of the new Volvo XC60 BS6. The vehicle in question appears to be the D5 Inscription diesel variant - one of two configurations of the XC60 available in India.

The other is the D4 Momentum diesel variant that is more affordable. Speculation is that the test mule is the XC60, considering the company has already launch a BS6 compliant version of the XC40.

The current-generation Volvo XC60 BS4 models feature a 2.0-litre diesel engine (in the D5 Inscription variant) that produces 235bhp of power and 480Nm of torque. In comparison, the D4 Momentum variant features the same 2.0-litre mill but is tuned to produce 190bhp of power and 400Nm of torque.

Both variants arrive with engines mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that send power to all four wheels. We expect some reduction in performance and power figures because of the BS6 upgrades, but expect changes to be negligible.

Other features that the XC60 BS6 models are expected to arrive with are parking sensors for the front and rear, ABS with EBD, traction control, EPS, ISOFIX child seat anchor mounts, a remote operated fuel tank lid, and a panoramic sunroof.

The current-generation Volvo XC60 is priced between Rs 52.90 lakh and Rs 59.90 lakh. The BS6 upgrades will carry a premium, however we have to wait for an official statement about how much. Prices mentioned are ex-showroom, India.

Volvo is possibly one of the best four-wheeler manufacturers on the planet. The company always offers the best that can possibly offered and they do it rather quietly. We cannot wait to see the all new XC60 BS6 in the flesh!
