The Volvo XC90 has a huge iPhone right in the middle of the dashboard

If the shape of the new Volvo XC90 is less than inspiring, the touchscreen dashboard inside the cabin is beautiful in every way. Apart from a Tesla, I can’t think of a better system.

Plenty of cars have touchscreen but the XC90 takes it to a different level. Pretty much everything you need is embedded in the huge panel, including most of the traditional dials and buttons.

Most people own a smartphone these days. The XC90 screen effectively becomes a bigger version of your mobile, interacting to provide seamless telephone, music and entertainment options.

And it’s intuitive too. The functions might look complicated but even I navigated my way around the functions in a matter of moments.

Best of all is mapping. It receives ‘live’ upgrades so you don’t need to download expensive upgrades. Brilliant! Why aren’t all cars like this?
