Twelve years – that’s how long the Volvo XC90 has been around. When it was first launched, luxury SUVs were rare but time has spawned multiple versions of the X5, ML, Cayenne and Touareg. The Swedes, however, have remained stagnant.

Until now.

The long awaited second-generation XC90 is due to break cover later this year and Volvo, in a bid to tease its suitors, has released a set of interior images to hold them back from booking a spanking new BMW X5 instead.

Based on these pictures alone, the evolution is remarkable. For once, the XC90 is fitted with modern gadgetry such as a unique portrait-oriented touchscreen in the centre console and a beautiful, digital instrument cluster.

The luxury theme has been heightened with more upmarket wood-and-leather trim combos while you get premium touches such as an Orrefors crystal glass gear knob and diamond-cut start button and control knobs.

It’ll be interesting to see the final product of the exterior but these pictures should to their job in keeping SUV-loving businessmen interested. After all, true beauty lies inside, doesn’t it?
