Volvo has unveiled today new additional photos and videos with the upcoming 2015 XC90 model. As you already know, the next generation of the Swedish full-size SUV will be fully revealed in August.
The cabin of the 2015 Volvo XC90 is coming with a generous touch screen display which was developed to replace most of the buttons and knobs used on the actual generation. The new infotainment system is featuring the Volvo Sensus interface and promise to be not only intuitive, but also easy to use.
According to the Swedish car manufacturer this new feature was installed so “the driver will keep eyes on the road and hands on the wheel as much as possible”. To keep the driver focus, Volvo has installed a head-up display projecting important data on the lower section of the windscreen, while voice control also minimizes distractions.
"Drivers will be able to use the touch screen even if they are wearing gloves as the touch sensitive surface boasts an infrared technology that will sense the touch input even through gloves", is said in the official statement.
Furthermore, the 2015 Volvo XC90 will feature an Ericsson-based cloud solution and a HERE navigation system with support for remote content update.
“Smooth interaction without distraction has been the guiding expression for our designers and engineers. The in-car control system is designed to keep eyes on the road and hands on the wheel as much as possible,” said Thomas Ingenlath, Volvo Car Group’s Senior Vice President Design.
Last, but not least is the Apple’s CarPlay system which will be offered on the 2015 XC90.
