Although Volvo seems the great forgotten in the segment of the premium, the latest products of the Swedish firm have nothing to envy to the great Germans like the BMW X3 or the Audi Q5. The same is true in the auto aftermarket specialist business and this Volvo XC60 by Heico Sportiv is good proof of that.
The German tuner, specialized in Volvo and Polestar, has developed a complete set of visual modifications for the SUV. Perhaps what is most striking is the perfect integration of the elements, since it looks more like a sports version from the factory than a preparation. Of course, they are also offered mechanical adjustments.
The aesthetics of the Volvo XC60 by Heico Sportiv
On the front, the additions in the air intakes, the fins and the divider stand out. A Heico emblem is also missing from the grille. These are combined with front and rear fender extensions; as well as a redesigned rear apron that houses the quad exhaust pipes. All parts can be painted on the body color or contrast.
All modifications comply with the latest pedestrian protection guidelines and do not interfere with vehicle sensors and ADAS systems. Moving on to the interior, there we find a nice sports steering wheel, aluminum pedals, velvet floor mats and a set of Heico emblems for various elements.
They put the icing on the cake 21 or 22 inch alloy wheels by Volution. They are shod with wider performance tires. Behind the rims is an upgraded brake system. For a more aggressive stance, the specialist offers 15mm spacers and a special electronic module that lowers the adaptive air suspension by 30mm.
Interesting overdose of power
Heico has not limited itself to visual and chassis modifications. e.Motion upgrade software boosts the 2.0-litre turbodiesel engine’s output to a more respectable one 220 hp (162 kW) and 480Nm of pair The increase in power translates into a 0 to 100 km / h in 9.4 seconds. For all versions you can limit the maximum speed.
Thanks to this, the speed limiter exceeds 180 km/h up to 230km/h. Other options include a intercooler performance, a sports air filter and an accelerator pedal adjustment. They are offered for all versions, but in the case of the XC60 T8 with the plug-in hybrid system, the set must be crazy.
not missing a active sports exhaust system with throttle control that can be combined with the Heico Sportiv sound system for a more aggressive tune. The body package costs 3,399 euros. It amounts to 6,592 euros if we include the exhaust system, plus another 801 euros when adding the tires.
Mechanical modifications significantly increase the cost. We are talking about 2,282 euros for the adjustment of the engine software, 1,850 euros for the increase in top speed and 1,519 euros for the intercooler. Added to these are 1,979 euros for the air suspension module and 5,988 euros for the improved brake system.
