ROCKLEIGH, New Jersey — The all-new interior of the 2015 Volvo XC90 was revealed on Tuesday, with a full debut of the seven-passenger SUV set for August.
The centerpiece of the redesigned interior is a tablet-like touchscreen control console that is "virtually button free," the automaker said.
The XC90 also gets new seats and a gearshift lever made of crystal from Orrefors, the Swedish glassmaker.
Pricing and launch timing were not announced.
Volvo said the "XC90 story will continue to unfold over the summer." More information on safety and interior air quality will be released later this summer, while the reveal of technology highlights, including chassis and powertrains, will start in mid-July and continue until the exterior launch at the end of August.
Volvo said its redesigned SUV features a "modern and spacious interior (that) is the most luxurious to have been designed for a Volvo."
Details include soft Nappa leather and dark flame birch wood, along with "diamond-cut controls for the start-stop button and volume control."
The second- and third-row seats get more passenger room. The redesigned seats feature optional ventilation and massage functions.
The second row has three individual seats with recline adjustment. An integrated child booster cushion in the center seat is optional. All seats in the second and third rows can be folded individually. A separate air-conditioning unit for the third row is optional.
Edmunds says: Volvo's seven-passenger SUV has been overdue for a redesign. This first look at the interior of the XC90 should help car shoppers with their future plans.
