The striking interior of the all-new Volvo XC90 marries beautiful materials, like soft, supple Nappa leather and Swedish flame birch wood with sleek, handcrafted details, like diamond-cut controls for the start/stop button and volume control. Because it comes from Sweden, a place where form and function work with, not in spite of, each other.
In Sweden, good design is a way of life. We start by working out what people need. What will make their lives easier. So with the all-new Volvo XC90, we decided to reimagine the luxury SUV and how you interact with your vehicle.
To use technology to simplify, not complicate. We replaced dozens of buttons and switches on the center console with intuitive voice control, thumb controls on the steering wheel and a large touch screen. And we did it all, because the all-new Volvo XC90 is designed around you. To be smart and intuitive, not ostentatious.
The interior of the XC90 is a place that makes you feel so comfortable and happy to be in, you will be reluctant to leave.
The interior of the all-new Volvo XC90 is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. A place to connect with the world on your own terms. A place without clutter, because clutter clouds the mind. That’s why we believe that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.
Each handcrafted seat in the XC90 combines comfort, support and style in a beautifully crafted package; so don’t be surprised if, after a long journey, you arrive feeling fresher than when you set off.
The seat’s streamlined design also provides more interior space for adults and children alike in both the second and third row seats – making the all-new XC90 a genuine sevenseat, luxury SUV.
Combined with theater-style seating, passengers that suffer from motion sickness because of an obstructed view will have as good a view of the road ahead as you do.
These innovative seats are available with heating, cooling and adjustments to make this the most comfortable chair you own.
The leather seats in the XC90 undergo a thorough hand-crafted process. Volvo uses two types of leather: Standard leather and Nappa leather both supplied by Bridge of Weir in Scotland.
“It’s amazing actually, there are real people sitting and sewing all day,” says Anders Bergstrom, Interior design manager.“The steering wheels as well, with people just stitching by hand. Some of it is done using sewing machines but some details can only be made by hand. That’s true craft.
“At Volvo, we have a distinctive zig-zag stitch that is a bit more demanding than the one used by other car companies. That’s why we do it by hand.”
Only the most exceptional natural materials find their way into the new XC90. For example, the wood for the XC90 interior is hand selected, shaped and matched to each vehicle. Available with flame birch, found only in remote forests in northern Sweden. Its name comes from the distinctive patterns in the wood that are a result of the extreme temperatures and harsh windsgiving the wood a warm natural finish not found in any other premium SUV. Other interior trims include, cross brushed aluminum, metal mesh,dark and natural flame birch, and charcoal inlays.
One of the most beautiful features of the interior of the XC90 is a stunning gear lever made from exclusive Orrefors crystal glass. This striking piece of crystal is made in Sweden and is only available on the Twin Engine powertrain. Interior design manager Anders Bergstrom, who came up with the idea for a crystal gear lever, describes it as “a beautiful thing” that reflects light in different colors when the sun hits it.
Imagine a car where the air inside is cleaner than the air outside. A car that actively removes harmful pollutants and toxins from reaching the people inside. A car that can even close the incoming air ducts if it detects particularly high levels of pollution.
That car is the XC90. Our new climate control system uses sophisticated carbon filters to purify all incoming air as well as the air that’s being recirculated. A sensor can determine how dirty that air is and, if pollution levels are high, it can close the ducts to recirculate the air inside. The result is air is so clean; it’s like a breath of fresh air every time you drive.
The all-new Volvo XC90 brings you one of the top audio systems available in the automotive world. We joined forces with renowned British audio company Bowers & Wilkins to bring you an experience unmatched in any luxury SUV.
Seating for seven and your stuff. Even long items like skis or snowboards can be loaded into the car, thanks to the individually folding second and third-row seats.
