^ That interior is so beautiful. I think we're at the point where consumers are open to auto interiors that incorporate unique finishes and materials - wool in particular could be really interesting.
Having seats attached from the sides would be awesome. I must have 30$ of change stuck under my seat.
I sold Volvos for a little while, and I really love and respect them. however, I don't think i'd ever buy one just because the front headrests are so tall they are a hindrance for rear seat passengers....I know they are safer, but they really are a little too tall...I hate 'em...
Every single person who complained about the front headrests would put the front seat in the WEIRDEST position. I always wanted to say, "Would you actually drive the car sitting like this?"
And anyone who complained about visibility from the rear seats, I would have to physically stick in the back and point out that the rear seats are several inches higher than the front seats, and visibility is actually excellent. Plus, you are allowed to look somewhere besides straight ahead into the seat in front of you
I did feel it was a mistake to stick to such a tall headrest....of course Volvo has always had top-notch safety, but in this case I think they should have relaxed their standards a little....
I completely disagree that Volvo should ever relax any safety standards. And their headrests are infinitely more comfortable for me as a tall guy..
What kind of MSRP are we looking at for these? Low $40K?
A few images with less plastic, we only have a week or so before this is shown in Geneva, hopefully.
I know people will complain this will look too much like the XC90 but I'm sure it'll be a hit.
Replacement for the current XC60 couldn't come earlier. Drove a D5 Auto with the old diesel five a couple of weeks ago and that thing feels old.

The current Volvo styling language is excellent; I'm glad to see it on all their cars.
Plus, every BMW, every Audi, every Mercedes, etc uses the same styling language. It's called brand identity. And now Volvo finally has it---just in time, too
Does any one else use a dual color blind spot indicator besides Mercedes?
It first turns orange then red. I don't think I have seen that on other brands.
Compare to XC90
