Entry Description

Volvo is in the midst of a revitalization, working to deliver its most modern safety, design, and comfort innovations, and a new vision of luxury. The 2016 XC90 T8 Twin Engine epitomizes the brand’s new direction. The exterior starts with Volvo’s new logo, Thor’s Hammer- inspired LED headlamps, muscular yet subtle lines, and the brand’s vertical taillight design. The doors open to Volvo’s idea of a sanctuary: stadium leather seating for seven, lush wood trim, diamond-cut touches, an Orrefors crystal gearshift, and the Sensus infotainment system, featuring a nine inch touchscreen and just eight physical controls. Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture provides expansive space for comfort as well as technical advancements under the hood. The XC90 T8 Twin Engine is the world’s first plug-in hybrid, seven-seat SUV, uniting power and efficiency without compromise: 400hp and 59MPGe from the super- and turbocharged, four cylinder Drive-E engine, and an electric motor at the rear.
