All-new XC90 will debut in Sweden in two weeks
Volvo has just released nine shots of the all-new XC90 sans sheetmetal two weeks before it’s to debut in Sweden. The new SUV will be the first to use Volvo’s long-coming Scalable Product Architecture that will underpin all future Volvo models.
Also included in the bevy of engineering shots is a single frame featuring the new XC90′s headlight with a LED bar reminiscent of ‘Thor’s Hammer’, says Volvo.

Volvo’s Scalable Product Architecture has been under development for four years and has only one fixed measured section – between the front axle and slightly behind the steering column – while all other sections of the chassis are flexible.
From a design perspective, SPA opens up many options for creativity and technology. It will also allow Volvo to reemerge with a new distinctive look.
“Anyone who looks in their rear-view mirror is going to know immediately that there is a new XC90 behind them,” says Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President Design of Volvo Car Group.
“The XC90 is a car that has presence on the road.”
We will know more about the new SUV in two weeks.
