 Iconic Luxury

The all-new Volvo XC90’s interior is the most exquisitely designed of any Volvo to date, drawing inspiration from its country of birth – Sweden – which has a global reputation for integrating cutting-edge technology with design that is clean, beautiful and crafted from the finest materials.

Sensus

The designers and engineers behind the Volvo XC90 have completely re-conceived the way drivers operate their cars by dispensing with the normal array of buttons and replacing them with a large tablet-like touch screen, a head-up display and thumb controls on the steering wheel.

The result is the most modern in-car control system on the market, which is significantly easier to use, ensuring drivers will be able to keep their eyes on the road as much as possible while operating or making adjustments to the system.

Sound

Volvo Cars teamed up with Bowers & Wilkins to create an exceptional audio system for the all-new Volvo XC90 

  • One of the top audio systems available in the automotive world
  • All-new Volvo XC90 delivers fully integrated air-ventilated subwoofer
  • Note the B&W system is optional, but is included in the Premium and R-Design packs.

 

World first – Road departure protection

Road departure accidents – when one or more of the wheels accidentally veer off the road and come in contact with the surface or object next to it –  is a common accident type with different causes, such as driver distraction, fatigue or poor weather conditions to name a few.

 

Volvo’s Safe Positioning capability means that in a run-off / road departure scenario, the all-new Volvo XC90 detects what is happening and the front safety belts are tightened to keep the occupants in position. The belts are firmly tightened as long as the car is in motion.

 

To help prevent spinal injuries, energy-absorbing functionality between the seat and seat frame minimises the vertical force on occupants if the car encounters a hard landing during an accident. This system is capable of reducing the vertical occupant forces by a third, and thereby drastically reducing the risk of spinal injuries.

 

In addition to the above system, the all-new Volvo XC90 is equipped with features that further protect and help the driver avoid run-off road scenarios:

  • Lane Keeping Aid applies extra steering torque if the car is about to leave the lane unintentionally
  • Driver Alert Control, which is also standard, detects and warns tired or inattentive drivers
  • Rest Stop Guidance, will direct the driver to the nearest rest area

 

World first – Auto brake at intersections

The all-new Volvo XC90 is the first car in the world with technology that features automatic braking if the driver turns in front of an oncoming car. This is a common scenario at busy city crossings as well as on highways, where the speed limits are higher. The all-new Volvo XC90 detects a potential crash and brakes automatically in order to avoid a collision or mitigate the consequences of a crash.
