Stuff Singapore - - HOT STUFF -

Volvo’s new XC90 is the fig­ure­head of its re­freshed, hi-tech and still Swedish de­sign di­rec­tion. Those fancy LEDs and the sim­pli­fied front grille, for ex­am­ple, plus the hy­brid 60g/km CO2 en­gine. But let’s go inside: the dash­board has a new tablet-like Sen­sus in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem that sup­ports Ap­ple CarPlay and An­droid Auto with Nu­ance-pow­ered voice recog­ni­tion. There’s a 19-speaker Bow­ers & Wilkins sound sys­tem and, should you be dis­tracted by it, there’s a brace of sen­sors and radar work­ing to avoid peds and cy­clists as well as other cars. Makes a Range Rover look like an over-priced trac­tor, doesn’t it? $tba / volvo­
