2016 Volvo XC90 Sensus Touchscreen Infotainment Review


Intuitive, intelligent technology to always keep you connected.

Sensus connects you with your Volvo and the rest of the world. It keeps you informed, entertained and in control of your journey. Intuitive, easy-to-use controls are a prime feature of Sensus and you will find them on the large, 9″ Sensus Touchscreen. Replacing physical buttons with virtual equivalents on the screen allows them to be larger and easier to use.

Bold, clear graphics make it easy to absorb information at a glance. Our philosophy has always been that you should be able to operate your Volvo and keep your eyes on the road. The optional head-up display means you can do just that.

And Sensus goes further, with in-car WiFi keeping your devices connected to the internet, while our audio systems offer considerable flexibility when it comes to choosing your desired music source and tailoring its sound.


Get closer to the music you love, no matter which seat you’re in. With Sensus Connect all of your music is available all of the time, whether it’s direct from your favorite media source or streaming from the internet.

It all begins with the 9″ Sensus Touchscreen control center. The surface responds to the lightest of touches – you only need to brush your fingers over the glass to operate the controls. It even works with gloved hands. Connecting your devices is quick and easy. With our Smartphone Integration you simply plug your smartphone into the car using the USB connection and you can turn the center display into an extension of your iPhone® (5 or later) or Android smartphone (5.0 Lollipop or later).

You can connect via Apple CarPlay™ or Android Auto™ to access your device’s music, make calls and send messages. And when connected, your phone will be charging too. Your choice of entertainment is not limited by what you have on your smartphone or portable audio player. WiFi and tethered internet increases your choice, with a fast and stable connection through the roof aerial. The Spotify® in-car app makes finding new music quick and easy, and you have access to internet radio and on-demand services, as well.

Our High Performance audio system is tuned to make the most of your music, while Bowers & Wilkins takes the listening experience to another level.
