Volvo XC90 Gets Sporty New Look And More Power

Tuning / Comments

Germany's Heico Sportiv has launched a range of aftermarket accessories for the Volvo XC90.

The Volvo XC90 is renowned for being safe rather than sporty, but Heico Sportiv wants to change that. The German Volvo tuner has unveiled a new range of accessories that spice up the sedate family SUV.

On the outside, the tuner can install a body kit that includes a front spoiler and a rear skirt incorporating a stainless-steel sport exhaust system with quad tailpipes. The complete body kit will set you back 3,103 euros ($3,500), while the front spoiler and rear skirt cost 1,462 euros ($1,600) and 1,755 euros ($2,000) respectively.

Thankfully, the performance parts don't look too garish and seamlessly integrate with the factory car's sleek Swedish styling, creating the "image of a harmonious and homogeneous Volvo from every perspective." Heico Sportiv also offers a set of custom wheels for the Volvo XC90, 21 or 22 inches in size.

In addition, the XC90 can be upgraded with Heico Sportiv's sports shock absorbers, spacer plates for the rear axle and wheel spacers. Available for XC90 models with adaptive air suspension, the tuner's lowering springs can lower the SUV's ride height by 0.9 - 1.18 inches depending on the driving mode selected. The sport springs cost 463.01 euros ($500), while the spacers cost 248 euros ($280) in silver and 302 euros ($340) in black.

If you want more performance, Heico Sportiv can extract more power from XC90 Hybrid T8e's electrified 2.0-liter engine using its e.motion chip tuning to tweak the ECU. In stock form, this unit produces 400 horsepower, but the upgrade increases the output to 428 hp. While all new Volvos have a restricted top speed of 112 mph, the tuner can remove the XC90 Recharge's speed limiter and increase the top speed to 130 mph.

As for the interior, Heico Sportiv offers an aluminum pedal set (197 euros), an aluminum footrest (273 euros), a sports steering wheel trimmed in leather and Alcantara (1,122 euros), and custom floor mats (154 euros).
