Next-gen Volvo XC90 confirmed for 2014 image

Volvo has recently confirmed that the next generation of the XC90 will hit the market in 2014, and the renderings of the model have already been released.

After a rumor appeared almost two weeks before writing this article which said that the future generation of the Volvo XC 90 will hit the market in a final production form in 2014, the Swedish based automaker has recently confirmed this rumor. According to the company, the 2015 Volvo XC90 will be the first model to be built on the Scaleable Platform Architecture (SPA), the same one which will also underpin future generations of other models, like the S60, the V70, the XC60 or the S80.

The upcoming Volvo XC90 will hit the market 13 years after the original model has went into production and the next generation of the crossover will use downsized four-cylinder VEA (Volvo Environmental Architecture) engine, which will be available in both petrol and diesel forms. A plug-in hybrid version of the Swedish SUV will also be offered, and it will use hardware co-developed with Siemens. More details on the future generation of the Volvo XC90 will be announced probably close to the vehicle’s launch.
