What's New for 2015

The 2015 Volvo XC90 will be fully redesigned with a new look, a new body structure and a more efficient engine and transmission.

Introduction

The 2015 Volvo XC90 marks the SUV's first comprehensive redesign since its debut in 2003. That's ancient in today's sport-utility segment, where models visit the surgeon about every five years. Safety and understated style have been Volvo pillars for decades, so one can understand Volvo's reluctance to deviate from its course. But the quick evolution of its competitors means the XC90 is no longer the hip, bullet-proof icon of old. Family SUVs like the Acura MDX and GMC Acadia offer comparable class, comfort and safety standards.

Although Volvo has not yet revealed the final look of the redesigned XC, the recent Concept XC Coupe shown here in photos gives us a good idea of how the upcoming XC90 will look. Just imagine it with another set of doors and a second row of seats and you'll be pretty close. An upright, floating grille, long hood and a wide rear end punctuated with liftgate-embedded taillamps should reshape the frump of today's XC into something more fit and assertive. The overhauled exterior will sit atop an all-new platform with a generous infusion of high-strength steel to maximize collision protection while minimizing weight.

Volvo will eventually phase out its eclectic mix of current engines in favor of a single 2.0-liter four-cylinder family. The XC90 will offer a 316-horsepower four-cylinder that is both supercharged and turbocharged, and joined to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

An all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid version will use the same four-cylinder (also super- and turbocharged) connected to an electric motor that drives the rear wheels. The combination will make around 400 hp. Volvo says the XC90 will be able to cover 25 miles on electric power alone.

The XC90 is also certain to feature Volvo's latest safety advances. In addition to current features like City Safe automatic braking, the next XC90 could feature nighttime pedestrian detection, steering correction if the car wanders to the edge of the road, and adaptive cruise control with steering assist. Volvo's animal detection system, which aims to prevent collisions with wildlife, could arrive a few years after the XC90's launch.

The new Volvo XC90 is expected at dealerships in spring 2015, starting at around $42,000. That keeps it in league with primary alternatives like the Acura MDX, Buick Enclave and Mercedes-Benz GL-Class. The plug-in hybrid also should also give pause to buyers considering the forthcoming Tesla Model X crossover.
