2015 Volvo XC90
Well… It’s been 11 years.
For something that doesn’t look that great.
I mean, they’ve been teasing us with 3 great looking concept this past years. I mean great designs inside and out.
Telling us “The next XC90 will look like that! Yes it will!”
No it doesn’t.
You could put any grille on that thing and it could be any luxury SUV. From anyone.
And the interior has nothing in commun (nothing) with any of the recent concepts.
I guess this is the “Jetta of luxury SUVs”. Boring but not ugly.
It will start at about $49 000 in the US. Which is almost $10 000 more than the current model.
So they obviously think it is great.
So great that they will offer a “first edition” model at launch. And that one will be $66 000!
Sure, getting 316hp from a 4 cylinder is pretty cool.
But $66 000….
The T6 model will be a 2.0 Liter Turbo while the T8 will be a hybrid with 400hp.
So engines are quite modern.
Too bad the design isn’t.
This is fine, but it could have been great…
