2015 Volvo XC90

Volvo has revealed its all-new 2015 Volvo XC90 boasting completely new styling and design. It’s taken three years and $11billion to bring this car into being and it heralds a new design direction for future Volvos – in fact they claim they’re not just launching a car, but relaunching their 87-year old brand.

The new XC90 will debut at the Paris Motor Show and go on sale in Europe in October with deliveries in May – I’d expect it to hit our market in the second half of 2015.

It will be offered with a range of 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines with a 400bhp range-topper combining a supercharger and turbocharger.

Inside there is a tablet-like touch screen in the centre console and does away with buttons. There are of course plenty of luxury touches including soft leather and wood, plus a gear lever made of crystal glass from Orrefors and diamond-cut controls for the start-stop button and volume control – must-haves in Dubai!

It’s a seven seater with, it’s claimed, space for average-sized adults in the third row. They’ll all be entertained by a Bowers & Wilkins 19-speaker sound system featuring 1400 Watts – and in a first, features air-ventilated subwoofers that are integrated into the car body turning the whole interior space into a giant subwoofer (so says the press release)!

This new Volvo XC90 sounds perfect for our region, or it would be if they could just stick a V8 back in there!
