About Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 is the Swedish automaker's flagship SUV, and a flagship in general for advanced driver-assistance, active-safety features and technology. Reborn in its current form two years ago, the XC90 midsize-luxury SUV went from one of the stalest vehicles to one of the most innovative. The extreme makeover included an interior that remains among the most stylish and sophisticated at any price point to an all-new suite of semi-autonomous driving aids. Even the up-level engine is a marvel: a turbocharged and supercharged 4-cylinder. Now, the XC90 is a legitimate rival to the Acura MDX, BMW X5, Audi Q7 and Infiniti QX60. Issues to be aware of, however, are the finicky touch-based infotainment system and T8 Plug-in Hybrid model's powertrain refinement.
