The first full images of the new 2015 Volvo XC90 has surfaced on the net and here they are for your analysis. It has taken a full 12 years for the new generation to succeed its predecessor and the company has a lot riding on its success.

The style appears more aggressive yet less stylish than the 1st generation model. It features "Thor's Hammer" T-shaped LED daytime running lights and high-strength boron steel panels. Inside the cabin, we will find three rows of seats to house up to seven people with the third row allowing enough headroom for persons up to 170cm tall.

Full official details are expected to be released in the next few days before the XC90 officially hits dealerships early next year.
