Volvo unveiled today a full photo gallery of the new 2015 XC90 SUV. The car is scheduled to make its public debut during Paris Motor Show.
Built on the SPA (Scalable Product Architecture) platform, the new XC90 will be capable of supporting different types of propulsion as well as front wheel drive and four wheel drive. The design is completely renewed and, more than that, marks the beginning of a new era for Volvo.
The new design anguage features T shaped daytime running lights, that were called Thor`s Hammer. The back uses also LED technology but keeps the vertical taillights, also found on the current generation. Along with the new design language, XC90 also introduces the new Volvo logo, redesigned for a more modern approach.
2015 Volvo XC90 will feature four conventional engines, two diesels and two petrols.
Those who are looking for efficiency can find a D5 twin turbodiesel, that delivers 225 hp and 470 Nm with an average fuel consumption of just 6 liter/100 km. The more efficient version will be the D4 with an average fuel consumption of 5 liter/100 km, even if it delivers 190 hp and 400 Nm.
The petrol options will include the T6 turbocharged unit, with 320 hp and 400 Nm, together with a T5 turbo engine, capable of 254 hp and 350 Nm. There will also be a hybrid options, unveiled later on.
The 2015 Volvo XC90 will also allow the introduction of a hybrid version, a first for the Scandinavian SUV. The combined petrol and electric engine will be found on the T8 version, delivering a total of 400 hp and 670 Nm. Even so, the emission rating for the first 100 km will be just 60 g/km. The petrol unit and the electric one will offer a pure electric range of 40 km, rechargable at any house hold.
Inside the new XC90, Volvo installed a generous touch screen display which was developed to replace most of the buttons and knobs used on the actual generation. The new infotainment system is featuring the Volvo Sensus interface and promise to be not only intuitive, but also easy to use.
The list of safety equipment systems is very long. The Swedish manufacturer introduced many innovative features that promise us an autonomous car earlier than we expect.
