Volvo receives Red Dot Design Award

A jury of international designers and design experts has awarded Volvo’s new connectivity system the prestigious 2013 Red Dot Design Award. Sensus Connected Touch gives Volvo owners the world’s first voice-activated Spotify connection integrated in a car. It is a dealer-fitted accessory that can be fitted in most versions of the Volvo V40, S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80. It can also be retrofitted in used Volvo cars from model year 2011 and onwards that have the Sensus infotainment system with a 7-inch display.

“Our connectivity solutions are designed to make driving more enjoyable and safe,” explained Alain Visser, Senior Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Service at Volvo Car Group. “The Red Dot Design Award confirms that this approach to an intuitive, human-centric user experience fulfils modern car owners’desire to remain constantly connected also when driving. The introduction of Sensus Connected Touch paves the way for the large, factory-fitted portrait touch screen that will be part of the infotainment package in the all-new XC90 in 2014.” Sensus Connected Touch is a dealer-fitted accessory that can be fitted in most versions of the Volvo V40, S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80. It can also be retrofitted in used Volvo cars from model year 2011 and onwards that have the Sensus infotainment system with a 7-inch display. The system turns the integrated seven-inch display into a state-of-the-art infrared, beam-scanned touch screen that can be used even when wearing gloves. “You can play the music track you want just by saying its name,” Mr Visser added. “This, combined with an effective voice-activation, an intuitive user interface, a very fast Internet browser and a wide choice of around 20 functions and apps make Sensus Connected Touch outstanding compared with solutions from our main competitors.”
