Volvo has revealed official photographs of the interior of the all new Volvo XC90 which is due to go on sale early next year. It is due to be unveiled in its full glory at October’s Paris Motor Show.
Originally launched back in 2002, the XC90 was the choice of the safety conscious family with its seven seats and host of safety equipment, most of which was pioneering twelve years ago.
The new XC90 which has been a long time coming promises to revolutionise family orientated SUVs, which will be harder than before with tougher competition.
The new XC90 will be the first Volvo to use the company’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which creates a far wider range of design possibilities and permits the inclusion of the latest safety features and connected in-car technologies, while at the same time increasing interior space.
At the heart of the interior will be a tablet-like touch screen control console, which forms the heart of an all-new in-car control system. Which, according to Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design of Volvo Cars represents an entirely new way for drivers to control their car and access a range of Internet-based products and services.
Volvo are promising a more playful interior but do not wish to add technology for technology’s sake –there aim is to make cars safer and more pleasurable to drive.
