Sometimes a vehicle's trim levels can be a little hard to understand. Maybe the names don't draw a picture for you, or they draw the wrong picture. We at Premier Volvo Cars Overland Park want to demystify some of that for you.

The Volvo XC60 Recharge and XC90 Recharge both have the same four trim levels: Inscription Expression, R-Design, Inscription, and Polestar Engineered. It's easy to keep the R-Design and Polestar Engineered separate in your head, you might have a bit more difficulty with the Inscription Expression and Inscription thanks to the similar names. Let's take a look at what makes these trims different.

Inscription Expression

Don't be confused by the long name, the Inscription Expression is actually the base trim level for the XC60 Recharge and XC90 Recharge, which share many features between them. Even as the base trim, the Inscription Expression has heated, leather seats and driver-seat memory settings so you can get comfortable on those cold morning commutes in Kansas City, MO.

This trim also gives you a nine-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration. The adaptive LED headlights which turn around a bend with you and the standard safety systems are just icing on the cake that make the Inscription Expression a worthy base trim.


The Inscription is an upgrade from the Inscription Expression, including everything on the base trim. In addition to being heated, the front seats are now also ventilated so you can remain comfortable in any weather. The audio system is up from a standard 10 speakers to a 14-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system or an available 15-speaker Bowers and Wilkins premium audio system.
