Volvo shine fresh light on details of their new XC90 flagship

VOLVO continue with their lead-up to the formal unveiling of their new XC90 by divulging more technical details.
Publicly unveiled later this month, it will be the first Volvo based on the new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) architecture which was four years being developed. It is the cornerstone of a €7bn plan to revolutionise the Volvo line up.
The XC90's second row of seats will slide and the third row will have enough space to cater for quite tall passengers.
With an eye on electric power, the car will also be able to take different sizes of battery packs without infringing on interior space.
The new car will be rolled out in Stockholm on Tuesday week.
Higher spec versions are expected to have at least the option of front and rear air suspension.
There's a range of Drive-E engines - 2-litre, 4cyl petrol and diesel - while the top-of-the-range 'Twin Engine' combines a 2-litre supercharged and turbo-charged petrol with an electric motor to give around 400bhp but just 60g/km in emissions.
