Volvo XC90 'Excellence' to be unveiled at Shangai Auto Show

Volvo XC90 'Excellence' to be unveiled at Shangai Auto Show

An elegant and refined four-seat version of the Volvo XC90 will be unveiled at the Shangai Auto Show.

The XC90 Excellence is the new alternative of Volvo's SUV and will be the most luxurious vehicle ever built by the Swedish company in its 88 year history.

As its name suggests, the XC90 Excellence is based on the new XC90 sports utility vehicle, however it would be wrong to suggest that these two cars are similar.

Volvo have thrown out three seats meaning that it has been reduced from a seven seat SUV to a four seat vehicle, creating an enormous amount of space, all in the name of luxury.

This space is utilised to offer a First Class automotive experience that begins with broad, spacious individual reclining rear seats complete with massage, ventilation and increased leg room, as well as a retractable control touchscreen, folding tables, a refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a heating/cooling cup holder and handmade crystal glasses from leading Swedish glass design company, Orrefors.

"This is our new flagship car," said Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President, Design.

"We have created the ultimate luxury experience of Scandinavian design. Volvo has never launched a car like this before. This is the car that demonstrates what the name Volvo now means."

The XC90, which was released in August 2014, has been very popular with customers looking for a luxury SUV. Over 24,000 were ordered before the car hit the showrooms, this accounts for approximately half of Volvo's expected volume for the car in 2015. Therefore the Excellence incorporates all the features of the XC90.
