The new generation of the Volvo XC90 will hit the market in 2014 as a 2015 model and it will be developed on the new SPA architecture.
Even if there is no official word on the future generation of the Volvo XC90 from the Swedish based automaker just yet, the guys at insideline.com are saying that the SUV will make its way onto the market as a 2015 model year, which means that it will be launched in 2015. Our source is also saying that the 2015 Volvo XC90 will be the first vehicle to ride on the new Scalable Platform Architecture (SPA), which will also underpin the next generation of the S60, XC 60, V70 and S80.
According to the source mentioned above, the 2014 Volvo XC90 is expected to adopt the company’s lineup of new four-cylinder engines with the Volvo Environmental Architecture (VEA), which will be more powerful than the current six-cylinder units and will also offer a better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions. Besides the regular petrol and diesel versions, a hybrid variant of the 2015 Volvo XC90 is also expected to make its way onto the market. More details on the future generation of the XC90 will be announced probably close to the vehicle’s launch.
