      I’m in a MY2021 T5 Momentum loner today. I’ll take some pictures before I return it.

      Anyone else curious about what this new “Air Quality with Advanced Air Cleaner” option is? To me it seems like a renamed Clean Zone that’s now an option and a gimmick sensor that “estimates” particulates in the air

      not really they patented and announced that they will be implementing n95 type ac's in the upcoming lineup so, I don't think it's a gimmick.

      No it's something completely different from Clean Zone Interior Package

      In EU countries, it has been on offer since April for 265 EUR

      I hope this lasts longer than the Clean Zone Interior Package - after 4 years it stops working

      Here’s the pics I took of the 2021 XC60. I don’t love the wireless charging pad and 12v outlet. An iPhone XR in an Otterbox case almost does not fit in there. Without a case, I’d be worried about the phone sliding around.

      Not a fan of the wireless charging in that spot either. It serves as a good third cup holder sometimes and the bigger phones will struggle with that spot.

      That said I'm not sure how else they could've fit a charger in with the current config. I wish the spot where the 12V is now could be indented more to fit a charger like how it is on the XC40 interior.

      I test drove a 2021 a couple of days ago and my iPhone slid off the charging mat more than once. I'm really noticing how little center storage there is in the XC60's...

      That's a major weakness in the volvo which otherwise has great ergonomics.

      The old clean zone was rated for something like 75% and the new one is up to 95%... I think it's a bit silly to have as a stand alone option other than to bring attention to it. Before folks would ask during delivery what it was... I suppose that's my fault for not pushing the feature, but I don't think I ever sold a car because it was standard....

      I agree. It’s not the best implementation. I would have liked to see some sort of vertical integration inside the armrest console storage and the center console area open.

      Wireless charging without wireless CarPlay doesn’t make much sense to me anyway.

      I usually put my keys in the space in front of the cup holders.

      Interesting, I had no idea Volvo was working on something new. Was there a Clean Zone Interior Package option in the US? I ordered my current XC60 and never saw that as an option. All I see is the CleanZone blue logo in the Sensus display. I always assumed that was just an enhanced, charcoal filter that filters particles better than the standard car cabin filter.

      I'm not sure if this was an option available in the US or if it's standard here. I've never unlocked my car with the remote - always use the keyless entry on the doorhandles. I do have Parking Climate timers set, but honestly don't even know if that is doing anything.

      IIRC it was standard in the US. Not really sure what it does but I sometimes see it on Sensus as gray and sometimes as blue so I'd guess it's not on all of the time but I have no idea what changes the state. We rarely touch the climate control now that we have it nicely dialed in so any changes are ones that the system is initiating.

      Agreed. I saw that and that it still doesn't appear to have wireless CarPlay (or AA) and scratched my head. I don't currently use CarPlay in part because of needing to hook up the phone, but if I were going to use it I'd use it far more frequently than a charger in the car. If it could just pick up the phone in my pocket and connect I might think of using it (though I'm unsure of what I'd want from it at the moment.)

      I'm not sure if it was a standard option on the US market but on the EU market it's a standard option for 4-zone climate

      Clean Zone Interior Package it only works when the car is unlocked with the remote control
      An enhanced fan function that means that the fan starts when the car is unlocked with the remote control key. The fan fills the passenger compartment with fresh air. The function starts when required and is disengaged automatically after a time or when one of the passenger compartment doors is opened.


      There are several terms that have different functions

      What's the deal with no massaging seats available on the 2021s? It's my wife's favorite feature in our 2019 I'd have to say. Trying to push people into the XC90?

      Oddly enough you can still get Massage Seats on the V60CC as a $500 Option. The Inscription models also lose the badge on the rear and the Chrome Side pieces no longer say Inscription anymore. The S60 lost Nappa Seats and massage options. It seems that now you can no longer choose your trim style and its tied to your seating material/color choice across all models. One last item they removed across the board, Headlamp Washers are eliminated; for many this may not be an issue, but for someone who lives in the Northeast I liked having them.

      Lazy implementation of wireless charger. Come on Volvo, do it right! At least like the xc40 or maybe more visible than that. Wouldn't be that hard to make some adjustments in the console.

      We were considering ordering another XC60 to buy when my wife's T8 was off lease but the lack of massage seats may sway us. I think Volvo is trying to cut the pricing as much as possible because the XC60 T8 was running too close to the newly released (and up sized) BMW X5 45e. That's the vehicle that's probably moving to the top of our list as of now.

      If you build out an Inscription in the configurator, then go to Summary page and click "View Standard Features" and then go to the info for "Comfort seat padding" under Interior, it does mention that the seats have the massage function. Not sure if that is accurate or an oversight though.

      Interesting. The v60 inscription does not include the messaging seats though.

      Totally agree, without wireless carplay or AA, no use of having wireless charging pad, Anyway I am going to connect to USB port for that.
