. In Shanghai the Swedish brand will be unveiling a super-luxury version of the XC90 SUV, called Excellence. The new XC90 Excellence will go on sale later this year in selected markets.

One of the main features of the Excellence is the four-seat layout. Volvo has substituted the seven seats of the standard XC90 by two large individual rear seats, which also feature massage and ventilation functions.

A feature that will definitely attract Chinese luxury car buyers, who are typically driven everywhere, is the increase of the rear leg room. Passengers can also control infotainment functions via a retractable touch screen.

The XC90 Excellence luxury features also include folding tables, a refrigerator, heated and cooled cup holders and crystal glasses made in Sweden. The new high-luxury version also includes a new screen separating the boot from the rest of the cabin, extra noise insulation and drives on Pirelli Noise Cancelling System tyres. An integrated ionic air cleaner helps to keep the cabin’s air supply fresh.

In terms of exterior design, the XC90 Excellence can be recognized through small styling touches, including chrome trim elements on the B and C-pillars

Volvo design boss Thomas Ingenlath explains that “With the XC90 Excellence we created the ultimate luxury experience of Scandinavian interior design. What we have designed is among the best rear-seat experience available in a luxury SUV.”

The engine range that will be available with the XC90 Excellence will include the 316hp T6, 225hp D5 and the 314hp plug-in hybrid T8 powertrain. All options will ofer all-wheel drive.
