Volvo things a little differently other premium brands in the world.

For this Swedish safety and kid-friendliness are just as as luxury amenities and driving and in no vehicle is this more than the Volvo XC90, a seven-passenger SUV.

Innovative features aside, the XC90 is adequate relative to the premium SUV competition. Zestier performance is elsewhere, as are more cavernous holds and more modern features. With more and modern competitors measuring up to high safety standards, the XC90 isn’t the slam-dunk for that Volvo products to be.

It remains capable, though, and safer than ever to some new tricks.

Current XC90

The Volvo XC90 is a luxury crossover SUV that in two different trim levels: 3.2 and 3.2 R-Design. Available with or all-wheel drive, the XC90 has a inline six-cylinder engine for 240 horsepower. It’s paired to a automatic transmission.

The 3.2 adds 19-inch alloys, a suspension/steering system, sporty styling cues, a sport wheel and special leather Major options include bi-xenon headlamps, a rear system with dual a DVD-based navigation system and a audio system.

If it is, then we’d the Acura MDX, BMW X5, Buick and Ford Flex. The Volvo is certainly a nice luxury but it lacks an edge over the in both luxury and performance.

Used XC90 will also come T6 models (sold from which had a 268-hp, twin-turbocharged inline-6 paired to a four-speed

Although acceleration was adequate either of these turbo their power delivery well suited for duty in a SUV. However, if you test-drive a T6 or 2.5T and find its performance to liking, there’s no reason not to buy it.

A 4.4-liter V8 joined the fray for It was rated at 311 hp. For 2007 and ’08, was a surprisingly fun V8 Sport model, added unique exterior a firmly tuned suspension, wheels, quicker steering, bolstered front seats, gauges and a sporty steering
