The 2015 Volvo XC90 is the latest generation Crossover made by the Swedish automobile manufacturer. Over the years, Volvo has been known to make the world’s safest cars and now under the new ownership, it has adopted a new ideology to make their cars more premium and powerful while maintaining world class safety standards.

Its flexible nature has greatly affected the design of the new car and the 2015 Volvo XC90 offers more space than any other car in this segment.
Under the new ownership, Volvo has decided to make their cars visually more appealing to the customers and this new car looks stunning in every aspect. The exterior designing makes use of subtle lines that blend well with the body panels, this give the car a soothing effect while looking smart and sharp. The most prominent feature of this model design is the new headlamp unit which has a unique daytime running light strip passing through it. The front grill has been redesigned to make it larger and provide a fresh new look to the front fascia. The profile view is simple with just a prominent high waist line running along its length. The rear is also reworked to make this car look sharper than the previous model. The edgy tail lamps and the twin exhaust pipes impart a modern look to the otherwise conventional looking car.

The 2015 Volvo XC 90 will come with a host of engine options, but the most remarkable engine is the newly developed twin engine system that is debuting on this car. This is a plug in hybrid powertrain that consists of a 2.0 liter four cylinder petrol engine that is both supercharged as well as turbocharged. A high capacity electric drive system will accompany this petrol unit and will power the rear wheels. Together they produce an astonishing 400 horsepower and 472 foot pounds of torque. The hybrid system helps this car attain a respectable fuel economy of 29 mpg despite having powerful performance figures. The high capacity batteries installed at the rear hold up enough charge to propel the car for 25 miles on pure electric power, therefore making the car capable of running smaller distances without burning a single drop of fuel.
