The new Volvo XC90 will be an indicator for what we can can expect from every new Volvo vehicle in the coming years, and the Swedish brand has just revealed the interior.
Unlike current Volvos, the center stack in the new XC90 is almost completely devoid of buttons, with control of the electronics reliant on a center-mounted touch screen that runs Apple’s brand-new CarPlay infotainment system. Nappa leather is used throughout the interior contrasted by dark flame birch wood accents. A crystal gear-lever from Swedish glass maker Orrefors is found in the center along with a diamond-cut start/stop button and volume control.
Volvo says the seven seats inside the XC90 are more comfortable than ever offering power operation and adjustable side bolsters, seat cushion extension, multi-directional lumbar support and vertical adjustment for the headrests. Heated, ventilated and massaging seats are available options.
The second row features three individual seats that can recline and slide independently of one another. A child booster cushion for the center seat is an available option. As for the third row, passengers get a theater-seat feel that Volvo says will accommodate people up to a height of 5’7″. Four-zone climate control can be ordered with the XC90, while a separate air-conditioning unit for the third row is optional.
The XC90 will continue its slow reveal all the way through the summer, with more details coming in mid-July and the final exterior reveal coming in August.
