All-new XC90 safety cage (with text)
Seven per cent of the safety cage in the original XC90 was made of hot-formed boron steel. The structure in the upcoming cars built on the new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA) feature over 40 per cent hot-formed steel, which translates into significantly improved strength but without adding mass or weight. The all-new XC90, illustrated in this image, will be launched in 2014.
