The Volvo XC90 receives a host of styling enhancements for 2013. Chrome and silver accents, along with color-keyed fender lips, adorn the exterior while a new 3-spoke steering wheel, white backlit instrument cluster and upgraded leather-seating materials round out the key interior changes.
Volvo has discontinued the optional V8 engine in the XC90, leaving the 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder as the sole choice. The 2012 XC90 is offered in two forms: 3.2 or R-Design, with additional trim levels for each that are designated Premier Plus and Platinum. Unlike other Volvos available in R-Design form, here the XC90 does not add more horsepower, but instead differentiates itself with a sport-tuned suspension and interior and exterior upgrades.
All 2012 XC90s get Bluetooth music-streaming capability and a new exterior color choice, Caspian Blue. R-Design models receive big 20-inch alloy wheels and xenon headlights.
A new trim, dubbed R-Design, is available on both the base and V8 model. It adds a unique grille, wheels, suspension upgrades and interior trim, as well as R-Design embossed leather seating. Some of Volvo's more popular options are bundled into new packages, making it easier for consumers add equipment.
Representing its most ambitious vehicle design program in decades, Volvo's all-new 2016 XC90 has been recast from the ground up. Marginally larger and more spacious than its highly successful predecessor, this 7-passenger all-wheel-drive (AWD) crossover SUV brings an elevated level of sophistication to its styling, engineering and powertrain elements while introducing class-leading advances in safety and infotainment technologies. As the first vehicle spun from Volvo's new scalable product architecture (SPA), it aims to steal share from premium global rivals like the Acura MDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Infiniti QX60, and Mercedes-Benz M-Class/GLE-Class. Both the XC90 T6 and its T8 Twin Engine plug-in hybrid sibling also set peer precedent as the result of their extremely efficient, supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter/4-cylinder Drive-E gasoline engines.
