2015 Volvo XC90 spied cold weather testing on a frozen lake

The all-new XC90 will debut in late 2014, and we already know it rides on the company’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), with power coming from a new range of Drive-E engines.

The styling of the next X90 has been previewed already by two concept models: the Concept Coupe and Concept XC Coupe.

Here we have our first spy shots of the next-generation Volvo XC90, caught cold weather testing on a frozen lake near the arctic circle.

The prototype is heavily disguised, but thanks to the previously revealed concepts we have a pretty good idea what’s under all the camouflage. We do get to see little of the huge grille and taillights.

The next XC90 will be offered with a seven-seat layout and will come with an impressive list of safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control with Steer Assist, smart seat belt pre-tension, Animal Detection, Road Edge and Barrier Detection With Steer Assist and Pedestrian Detection in Darkness.
