The Volvo XC90 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.
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 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.”
“…we tested six touchscreen infotainment platforms deemed worthy of consideration for the first Kelley Blue Book Best Auto Tech Award,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book. “One console in particular, the 2016 Volvo XC90 and its Sensus technology, was especially notable for its ability to enhance driving pleasure while also fostering safety, and it stood above the rest when it came to feature content, response times, ease-of-use and value.”
“This technology was deemed to be a cut above the rest in our testing, earning it the first-ever Kelley Blue Book Best Auto Tech Award,” said Micah Muzio, managing editor of video for Kelley Blue Book.
