2016 Volvo XC90 Sensus System Wins Inaugural Kelley Blue Book Best Auto Tech Award for Outstanding Feature Content, Response Time, Ease-of-Use and Value

LAS VEGAS, NV (January 5, 2016) – The Volvo XC90 SUV has been named the 2016 Best Auto Tech Award Winner by Kelley Blue Book for its Sensus infotainment system.

The heart of the Sensus system featured in the 2016 Volvo XC90 is a tablet-style, vertically oriented, nine-inch infrared display powered by Nokia's HERE Auto Services architecture. Those already familiar with the pinch and swipe interactivity of a smartphone will feel right at home with Sensus. The advanced voice recognition engine allows you to verbally input a navigation address while on the go, as well as adjust the climate, make calls and order up specific media channels. The award was presented here today during a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show.

“The XC90’s Sensus infotainment system simplifies vehicle controls and its many features - and presents them through a uniquely simple and elegant interface, instantly familiar to anyone with a smartphone,” said Anders Tylman-Mikiewicz, General Manager, Volvo Monitoring and Concept Center. “We are honored to have KBB recognize all the benefits of Volvo’s technology in that regard.”
