The Heico Sportiv tuning package for the new Volvo XC60 offers body modifications, a lowered suspension and up to 315PS from the turbocharged I6 engine.

The renowned Volvo experts at Heico Sportiv have released further details on the Volvo XC60 tuning package shown at last year's Essen Motor Show. It's one of the first kits available for the XC60, and Heico has set the bar quite high for any who might choose to follow.

Heico worked hard to keep the "fundamental DNA" of the XC60 intact, and the body package, which includes front, rear and side treatments, blends neatly into the XC60's lines. The front spoiler meets pedestrian protection guidelines, and the rear apron wraps neatly around the stainless steel exhaust outlets. Heico has made subtle modifications to the daytime running light housings as well. Wheels can be had in 19- and 20-inch sizes from Heico's Volution wheel series, with a choice of colors.

The Volvo tuners don't leave the XC60's powertrain alone, either. Output of the 2.4D and D5 engines is boosted to 210 PS, up from 163 and 185 respectively. The 3.0 turbo straight-six in the T6 fares even better, moving from an already respectable 285 PS to 315. Sport springs lower the XC60 about 30mm, and Heico also has a sport suspension with stiffer shocks available.

Acres of leather are available for the interior, of course. Heico trims the front seats, door panels and shift knob in one of nine different hues of cow, with custom upholstery available on request.
