Intuitive technology

Interacting with the XC90 is designed to be both natural and intuitive.

Give your hand a helping hand

Sensus offers you the simplest, most intuitive interface ever. It incorporates navigation so you can access relevant information, support and entertainment wherever you may be.

    Using the screen is so logical that it will become part of your muscle memory very quickly.

    Apple CarPlay is a perfect match with Volvo’s Scandinavian Design approach

    I wanted to use speech to operate something that would be complicated and take a lot of time for the driver to do.

Plug and play

The XC90 is the first Volvo to feature Apple Carplay. Access your iTunes, contacts, Apple Maps, iMessage, and even Siri. Connect your iPhone (5 or later) and interact with it on the large vertical screen. Your phone becomes a seamless part of your Volvo experience.

Integrated Spotify app

Volvo Cars is the first car maker to integrate the hugely popular Spotify music streaming service globally in our cars, starting with the Volvo XC90 and S90. Working closely with the popular streaming music service we have ensured a natural and familiar user interface in the car. The integration takes advantage of Spotify’s most popular features using the large tablet-like touch screen and eliminates the need to use a smartphone for music streaming while on the road.  


Take the concert with you

We’ve partnered with Bowers & Wilkins to recreate the sound of the Gothenburg Concert Hall inside the Volvo XC90. Listen to your favorite artists, songs, playlists, audio apps, podcasts, and iTunes Radio using your Volvo’s controls.

All eyes on the road

Our heads-up display makes it possible to see information, such as navigation, speed and incoming calls. They appear to hover discreetly in the air a few feet in front of the car. Messages are semi-transparent and adapt to the surrounding light.

Clever, never complicated

Everything about the Volvo XC90 is intuitive and smart, keeping you in touch with your entire environment and your life.
