New Volvo XC90 is spotted in testing
Came the first images of the highly anticipated new Volvo XC90. The model was spotted during testing on frozen lake in Sweden. The new XC90 is a great car, probably with enough space for seven people.
In the pictures you can see a car with enough disguise, which does not reveal much of its form. It is difficult to see any direct resemblance to the concept car Concept XC Coupe that was shown in Detroit a month ago.
However, one can clearly see that the model seeks smoother and the XC90 sports current forms. The design seen, at least at this stage, looks much like the current-generation BMW X5.
The new Volvo XC90, which will be the first car based on the new platform manufacturer, SPA, will be released in early 2015. Thanks to the capabilities of the new platform, the Volvo XC90 promises that will be one of the safest vehicles on the market when it is released next year.
The model will be equipped with the new VEA engines, ie, four-cylinder turbo with both petrol and diesel options available. The era of six and eight-cylinder engines in the Volvo over.
Just four months after the release should be launched plug-in hybrid version, in which the gasoline engine 2.0 turbo four-cylinder will have help from an electric motor. The new gearbox eight-speed Volvo team model.
