The shift knob is a stunning crystal-glass unit fashioned by Swedish glassmaker Orrefors, and the engine stop/start button and audio-volume knob are both diamond-cut, elegant and attractive. There are available full-digital gauge cluster, as well as a 1400-watt, 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system offering really special feeling. The redesigned model has a central LCD screen above a single knob flanked by three buttons on each side—plus the start button adjacent to the steering column. Touch screen is positioned 9.3-inch vertically and endowed it with iPad-like operation. The home screen has four horizontal summary layers—for navigation, audio/media, phone, and information. The HVAC controls are in a narrow band that’s always displayed at the bottom; as soon as you touch a control, the climate system takes over the whole screen to facilitate your inputs.
2016 VOLVO XC90 Super-Turbo-Volvo-Plug-In-Hybrid
We now have details on the 2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid SUV, which uses turbocharging, supercharging, and an electric motor to boost efficiency. The “Twin Engine” setup continues producer’s push for an all-four-cylinder lineup, even when it comes to its flagship seven-passenger SUV. So the plug-in XC90 gets a 2.0-liter gasoline engine from producer’s Drive-E line with two forms of forced induction, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The supercharger is used to boost power at the bottom end of the rev range, giving the turbocharger time to build up boost. The turbo is used at higher revs to increase mid-range and top-end power.
