The new Volvo XC90 breaks new ground in any number of ways. It's based on a new modular platform, packs new engines, introduces a new design language and incorporates a whole slew of new safety systems. Even in its sales approach, it takes Volvo into new territory.

In what Volvo calls an industry first, the first 1,927 examples of the new XC90 will be sold online. Those First Edition models, whose production numbers honor the year of the company's founding, will come fully equipped in T6 AWD guise with the twin-charged (but not hybrid) 316-horsepower engine, air suspension, Bowers & Wilkins audio system and 21-inch Inscription alloys, decked out in black with a tan Nappa leather interior, all for $65,900.

As you can see from the online store, ordering has officially begun. Get one while they're hot.

      this car is just too conservative looking, but with the Chinese market playing such an important role now, we are going to see more of these conservative looking designs. However, to counter the bland looks of this xc90, I'm pretty sure the Volvo has some sort of x6/x4 looking SAV based on this platform ready for the style conscious.

      Nice car, but when i hear Chinese ownership i hear bargain price. Almost $70K, that's a lot of Tofu.

        Do you think the same when you hear that Land Rover is of Indian ownership?

        I hear cut corners.  I hear echoes of infants poisoned by melamine-infused baby formula.  I hear slave labor.  I hear oppression.

      "The new Volvo XC90 breaks new ground in any number of ways. It's based on a new modular platform stolen from Western firms, packs new engines made with defective and inferior components produced by Chinese slave labor, introduces a new design language lifted directly from European patent drawings and pretends to incorporate a whole slew of new safety systems via rhetoric and whitewashing of the truth."

        Well you could say all that but nothing on the XC90 was designed in China and nothing on the XC90 will be built in China. No Volvos sold in the US are built in China and that is going to be the case for a long time. There is not enough demand for Volvos outside of china to justify the production in China for export. All Chinese production goes to the Chinese domestic market.
