The XC90 is a premium seven-seat SÚV designed to deliver a luxurious user experience, whilst retaining the ride height, space and practicality that typifies this §egmènt.
The XC90 is the first car to be built on the new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), Volvo's advanced modular product platform that will underpin all new Volvo cars in the 90 and 60 Series.
Like its siblings S90 and V90, the XC90 carries the proud and confident face of Volvo's new design language, along wîth classic Volvo styling cues. Key features include the iconic 'Thor's Hammer' LED headlight design, the new grille and Volvo Iron Mark, and the expressive use of the Volvo word mark on the rear, framed by the signature sweeping lines of the rear lights.
The interior of the XC90 provides a calm and balanced environment wîth a blend of high-end materials such as wood, crystal and metal in a sophisticated design.
A brand new seat design delivers on Volvo's heritage of making among the most comfortable and ingeniously safe seats in the car , using the latest technology. Connectivity
All new Volvos are now connected, thanks to Volvo's connectivity offering called Sensus. It delivers an intuitive touch screen interface that combines car functions, navigation, connected services and in-car entertainment applications such as Spotify, Pandora, Baidu or TuneIn. The portrait-oriented touch screen enables easy and fast access to a host of functions and features. See our Sensus factsheet for more details.
The XC90 is powered by Volvo's Drive-E powertrains, including petrol, diesel and Volvo's T8 Twin Engine, a petrol plug-in hybrid mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Volvo's T8 Twin Engine delivers all the benefits of a high performance, low emission petrol engine wîth an electric motor that delivers power on demand wîth CO2 emissions at just 49 g/km, more than 43 km of pure electric range and a combined power output of around 410 hp. This makes the XC90 T8 Twin Engine one of the most efficient and powerful 7-seater premium SÚVs on the market today.
Safety and semi-autonomous drive

From 2016, City Safety's functionality is further extended in the XC90 wîth Large Animal Detection, designed to help avoid or mitigate collisions wîth large animals such as moose. An auto-steer functionality which helps to keep you on the road, called Run Off Road Mitigation, has also been added.
Volvo's overall safety offering, called IntelliSafe, encompasses both active and passive safety systems and forms the groundwork for Volvo's leadership in the field of autonomous drive. The XC90 already offers semi-autonomous drive wîth Pilot Assist, which, from 2016, works up to 130 km/h on clearly marked roads. Pilot Assist is another step towards Volvo's Vision 2020, which states that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo by 2020.
