Slowly but surely, Volvo is releasing more information on its upcoming 2015 XC90 model.
After showing off the interior late last month, Volvo revealed more information about the infotainment system coming in its new crossover. Expanding on the Swedish automaker’s Sensus system, the 2015 Volvo XC90′s infotainment system will feature a large, vertically-oriented touchscreen with a head-up display and the ability to manage the infotainment system with steering wheel-mounted buttons. The new design is meant to be simpler and safer to use.

In addition to supporting Apple’s CarPlay system, Volvo will also offer an Ericsson-based cloud system, a Bowers & Wilkins stereo, a HERE navigation system and a range of connected features including Internet radio and the ability to find parking on the go. Of course some of those features will depend on market availability.
“Smooth interaction without distraction has been the guiding expression for our designers and engineers,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo Car Group’s Senior Vice President Design. “The in-car control system is designed to keep eyes on the road and hands on the wheel as much as possible.”
