The New Volvo XC90 - First Images With Car Interior
|   Wednesday, June 04, 2014
Volvo released the first official pictures of the XC90's interior. The second generation of the SUV with seven seats will be released this fall and will continue to play the role of flagship in the Scandinavian manufacturer's range.

The Volvo XC90 will be the first series built on a new modular architecture, SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform, which gradually will take over the entire range, except for the current V40 and its derivatives.
The motor support is the only fixed element, while the wheelbase and the track gauge may be declined in an unlimited number of versions, adapted for a wide range of models, from sedans and coupes, to cabriolets and to SUVs.

The first official pictures of the interior reveal a strong design, inspired by the lines of the XC Coupe Concept launched last year in Frankfurt. The new Volvo XC90 proposes innovative ergonomics and concentrates all important controls on a completely digitized console with a huge display. Classic board instruments will be replaced with a TFT display and the graphical user interface of the multimedia system will be completely redesigned and will focus on simplicity.

The few classic buttons present on board will be made ​​up of a unique mix of glass and genuine metal, the gear shifter or the engine start button being carved into crystal by Swedish specialists of Orrefors. Among the absolute premieres for the Volvo model we can list full color head-up-display, and a professional audio system signed by the British from Bowers & Wilkins.

Described as one of the most spacious in the segment, the interior of the new XC90 will provide sumptuous seven seats; the third row of seats can accommodate adults up to 1.7 meters tall in excellent comfort conditions.

On the Volvo XC90's outside the design theme inspired by the XC concept lives on. The thin LED taillights undulate softly on the car rear and the front side seems a tribute brought to the classic Volvo models. The floating grid, the flat hood and angular LED headlights that mimic the silhouette of the letter T, amplify the impression of solidity, while paying homage to yesteryear's massive 850 and 940 models.

The XC90 will be animated by the new engine family Drive-E with four cylinders and unique engine displacement of 2 liters, regardless of the type of fuel used for power - petrol or diesel.

The most powerful version will be a hybrid of about 400 hp and a torque of 600 Nm, which will combine an electric motor located on the rear axle, with a combustion engine, on petrol, of 302 hp, equipped with a mechanical compressor, active at low revs, and a turbocharged classic which comes into operation at more than 2,300 rpm. All versions will be equipped with a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic box with eight steps.

First images of the exterior will be presented in August in anticipation of the official debut at the Paris Motor Show. Until then, Volvo will launch at least two new teasers designed to anticipate the final design of the future XC90.
