2015 Volvo XC90 Heightens Link to Dealership


Just the Facts:
  • The 2015 Volvo XC90 will not only tell the driver when it's time to get the seven-passenger serviced, but "also suggest an appointment for you at your Volvo dealership," the automaker said.
  • The full debut of the 2015 XC90 is set for August.
  • Volvo said the redesigned XC90 will feature a large tablet-like touchscreen, a head-up display, state-of-the-art voice control and thumb controls on the steering wheel.

ROCKLEIGH, New Jersey The 2015 Volvo XC90 will not only tell the driver when it's time to get the seven-passenger SUV serviced, but "also suggest an appointment for you at your Volvo dealership," the automaker said on Tuesday as it revealed more details about the vehicle.

"The Connected Service Booking application is the first step in making the dealer workshop fully integrated into the connected eco-system," said Dr. Thomas M. Muller, vice president of electrics/electronics & e-propulsion engineering at Volvo Car Group, in a statement on Tuesday.

The full debut of the 2015 XC90 is set for August. The XC90 competes with the Acura MDX, Buick Enclave, Lexus GX 460 and Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.

Volvo said the redesigned XC90 will feature a large tablet-like touchscreen, a head-up display, state-of-the-art voice control and thumb controls on the steering wheel. Controls will be "instinctive," the automaker said, replacing traditional buttons and knobs with touchscreen controls.

Drivers wearing gloves will even be able to use the touchscreen controls, due to the use of infrared technology on top of the touch-sensitive surface.

The XC90 will also feature the world's first integrated Park and Pay application and the ability to mirror and use Apple iOS devices in the touchscreen display.

Volvo is doing a slow reveal of the highly anticipated XC90 and has not yet unveiled the entire vehicle.

Edmunds says: Volvo intends to take connectivity to the next level with the 2015 XC90, even making the dealership experience easier for owners.
