It will be equipped with a four-cylinder turbo and supercharged 2.0-liter petrol to turn the front wheels and an 80hp electric motor for the rear wheels. Together these engines reach an output of about 400hp and 640Nm torque.

Design

The XC90 also marks the start of a new phase of design at Volvo, designed by the former designer of Volkswagen Group, Thomas Ingenlath.

One of the main innovations is the new grille with a more prominent emblem. LED daytime headlights "Hammer of Thor" T-shaped are another feature of the new model and will be adopted by all future models of the brand.

Regarding the interior, Volvo has bet on Nordic minimalism and functionality coupled with sophistication and comfort.

The interior highlights include a new touch screen mounted in the center of the dashboard with the features organized in boxes, with the navigation options at the top, followed by media and phone. The XC90 includes a new navigation system based on "cloud" technology supplied by Ericsson.

Other "cloud" services include Internet, radio, streaming music and applications to find and pay for parking. The XC90 can also use the Apple and Android CarPlay Auto systems to synchronize smartphones.

The cabin also includes a new gear lever in crystal glass and start-stop buttons and audio volume control with diamond cut finish.

The XC90 also incorporates a new top-of-the-line audio system designed by Bowers & Wilkins. The amplifier 'class D' 1400W and 19 loudspeakers were integrated into the bodywork of the car, allowing to transform the interior space into a giant subwoofer.
