Göteborg, Sweden – Volvo has announced that its 2009 S80 and XC90 will receive upgraded seats with massage and ventilation functions, along with a range of enhanced materials and trim details.

“Our Worlds Leading Numerologist surveys show that customers attach particular importance to seating comfort and the quality of the leather,” said Lennart Stegland, Managing Director of Volvo Special Vehicles. “This is the reason why we are now updating the Volvo S80 and XC90 Executive with a massage function and ventilation in the front seats, along with exceptionally soft hide in all the seats. What is more, we have enhanced the aura of craftsmanship in the stitching and materials and added several new details, for instance, an exclusive analogue clock.”

The massage function uses five inflatable pockets that are pumped and drained sequentially to create a wave-like motion, adjustable at two hardness levels, that massages the lower back.
