inside the 2015 Volvo XC90Volvo clearly had a thesis it wanted to test when it gave us our first look inside the 2015 Volvo XC90: is it possible to get an entire prospective audience super excited by giving them little more than a glimpse at the interior? Based on the interior-only only reveal, we can finally affirm what we’ve been hearing for ages—it’s what’s inside that counts.

Like that concept, the interior of the XC90 revolves around a touchscreen tablet in the center stack that replaces common knobs and buttons.

The 2015 Volvo XC90 is also the first model to use the automaker’s Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which emphasizes the increased presence of technology without minimizing cabin space.

“Our new interior architecture is pure and uncluttered, while still radiating the sophisticated confidence and formality that luxury SUV customers expect,” said Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research and Development of Volvo Cars.

Also new inside the 2015 Volvo XC90 are seats influenced by Scandinavian chairs and created with comfort and space in mind. Standard Comfort seats offer available power operation, seat cushion extension, lumbar support, and vertical headrest adjustment. Contour seating, with improved side support from shoulder to thigh, is optional.

    What about the gas cap? Is it unscrewed from the outside or unlocked from the inside? Would you consider a door for the passenger kind of like the Saturn Ion had or something like that?

  • Based on the study, marketing is the issue more than engineering. The women in the study primarily wanted to know that an EV could ‘get the job done.’ Of course, the answer was ‘yes’ because they all drove EV’s daily. My female, ev-buddies all have the same concern, despite my own experience driving a LEAF over 2,000 miles per month for the last three years, there is a persistant insecurity. A fear of being stranded. Only when I provide details of my daily driving and the distances do people start to loosen up.
