The long-awaited all-new Volvo XC90 has been spied conducting winter testing in the nearby vicinity of the Arctic Circle.

Geely-owned Volvo is getting ready to finally reveal the next generation XC90 which is going to be available with a seven-seat arrangement. The model will utilize the new Scalable Product Architecture with power coming from a new range of Drive-E engines. There will also be several new safety and assistance systems while the design is likely to mimic the Concept XC Coupe shown in January at NAIAS.

The model will be officially revealed in the months to come and will go on sale sometime next year. Volvo USA will sell it as a 2016MY and is going to be the first model developed in collaboration with Geely who now owns the Swedish marque. Although a size increase is very probable, the next-gen XC90 is expected to go on a diet as a result of a more extensive aluminum use in the construction.

More details should be disclosed in the following months, possibly in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
