Sources close to Volvo are saying the Swedish marque is working on a more luxurious XC90 for the Chinese market.

China is a very important market for Volvo so it comes as no surprise they are already working on a special XC90 developed specifically for the People's Republic. While the regular 2015 XC90 is a seven-seater, the more luxurious variant will adopt a four-seat interior layout with individual rear seats that will benefit from the same comfort features as the front ones so expect extendable squabs, electric adjustment, massage function and adjustable seatback.  

The same report says Volvo will install the rear seats further back compared to the position of the XC90's middle bench seat to grant "exceptional" legroom. There's no word about a launch date but Volvo will probably show the more premium XC90 before the end of the year.

It's unknown at this moment whether the special variant will be sold outside China.
