Volvo have been getting all techie recently and have now released the Volvo S90 online Configurator that allows you to build the luxury Volvo saloon of your dreams.
According to techie commentators, the online Configurator will be the new thing in window shopping that is aimed at prospective buyers who are “just having a look, pal.”
There is literally nothing else like it in the car market at the moment, though in many ways its concept mirrors smartwatch company Motorola’s Moto Maker.
Users are essentially given the chance to design their very own Volvo S90 luxury saloon, a car which will be released in 2017 to rival the Audi A8, the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E- Class.
The available models that prospective buyers will be able to configure online include the T6 and the T5. The latter comes with a turbocharged four-pot engine, while the former is powered by a supercharged 316 horsepower unit and a turbo.
Volvo S90 Colours
The colour palette available to new car buyers will be limited to nine choices, which means there will be no neon sky blue or electric pink. Sorry lads, but this is still a Volvo we’re talking about here.
Exterior colours will include Luminous Sand Metallic, Mussel Blue Metallic, and Crystal White Pearl Metallica – as well as a load of other pretentious-sounding colours that me and my Fiat have never heard of before. I’ll stick to mint green, cheers.
Inside the cars, prospective Volvo S90 owners get to choose from up to 8 colour combos, which include a rather garish white leather.
Additional extras include heated steering wheel, and heated windshield washer nozzles.
And because Volvo are determined to make all their cars death proof by 2020, your customised luxury saloon will also include some seriously advanced technology. Lovely.
