Its initial foray into the public eye will be with these, a series of 20 images of the new three-row SUVs interior, which is very, very Swedish (there are even the most adorable little Swedish flags on the seats).<br /><br />In all, it looks like a positively sumptuous place to sit, with sharp looking woods and a crystal shifter, crafted by Orrefors Glassworks in Sweden. It's a clean, minimalist design that we imagine will age quite nicely.<br /><br />Featured quite prominently - and the main part of the cabin that doesn't strike us as minimalist - is the very large touchscreen. Aligned in a portrait layout, which hasn't been done by too many automakers, it will be home to <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2014/02/27/volvo-infotainment-user-interface-concept-estate-geneva/">a new type of infotainment system</a> that will make its debut in Volvo's flagship SUV. It also looks like we can expect digital gauges when the XC90 finally arrives.<br /><br />Volvo has redesigned the seats with an increased eye not only on comfort, but (unsurprisingly) on safety. While we don't have full details on the safety changes quite yet, we do have some details on the ute's passenger-hauling abilities. The second row remains a three-abreast bench, but each seat can be individually reclined. Sounds darn handy when hauling kids, we think. As for that third row, which remains a difficult proposition in most SUVs and CUVs, Volvo is promising that passengers up to five feet, seven inches will find the back row comfortable. Ingress and egress should also be improved, as well. We'll put those claims to the test when we shoehorn six-foot, five-inch Senior Editor Miersma in the back during our initial drive of the next-gen XC90.<br /><br />Volvo is really trying to stretch this reveal out. These interior images will be followed up in a few weeks by tech, chassis and powertrain details in mid July. The veil will finally be lifted on the exterior treatment by the end of August.
