Volvo XC90

Volvo XC90

About Volvo XC90

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.

In a word, everything. From its styling, platform architecture and suspension configuration to its potent yet super-efficient Drive-E powertrains, tablet-style Sensus human-machine interface, and advanced safety technologies, the 2016 XC90 introduces design elements that significantly elevate the status of both the vehicle itself and the entire Volvo brand.

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.

"We love the 2016 XC 90 Inscription First Edition. This is our fourth Volvo -- including the XC 70 we still own. The ride is impressive, the interior layout and functionality are excellent, and the exterior styling is unmatched. The touch screen controls are easy to use once you become familiar with the technology. We did experience some initial software bugs however once the dealer did a total replacement we've been fine.We attributed that experience to the fact we were early adopters. We've traveled extensively (hence the almost 30K miles in a little over a year) and love the highway and local handling. Highly recommend the rear air suspension stabilizer option. We've had the vehicle in all types of weather from a Northeast winter (prior to relocating) to the hot summer -- and recent high water due to Hurricane Matthew. We just raised the ride with the selector. Volvo has a winner in the technology and performance category leadership of this SUV. I'd rate it a full 10/10 but for the initial bug workouts. In each case the NJ dealer was great."

"I really am in the minority to exit a two year old X5 for this "old man" Volvo, but I don't regret it yet! The Beamer was decked out with Y spoke run flat tires which I never cared for at that premium price. The 21" on the XC 90 aren't much cheaper or easier to find but now I can at least rotate the same size wheels on this baby. Don't worry about power or speed pick up. The turbo 4 cyl. does a great job and only .1 seconds slower in qtr. mile. I'm convinced exterior paint chips easier and styling may lack one quick glance but this is a fine machine. Air suspension is a great option and the pilot assist is almost flawless. Great on long trips. Super standard radio sound but navigation speaks another language from me. I hope that improves. Quality on interior is ahead of BMW and wheels are better styled with detail throughout. I'd recommend you drive this 316 hp model. You wouldn't know it's a four except for more noise when it kicks in and slight less jump off line. The start/stop function is a pain and should be shut off, stay off option. More room and wifey feels extremely safe as it isn't least bit top heavy on bends. I hope they survive to keep making parts for this fine looking auto. No making up for those Beamer headlights. Thor headlights are a little boring, but I'm an "old man""

"I previously owned a 2010 Volvo XC60 3.2 AWD with all package options. I didn't have one single issue and planned to keep it. Once I saw the 2016 XC 90 being advertised I changed my mind. I placed an order in May of 2015 and it arrived in August of 2015. I'd like to point out that another review does say you need to get the inscription level (it is very nice) however the air suspension is an option without that also. I decided not to go with the inscription because of the ventilated seats. The dealer agreed saying with spills it would be much harder to keep clean. Instead I upgraded to the Momentum Plus package added all the other packages as well as air suspension, HUD, and the bowers and wilkins sound system. The total price was just over $62,000 which comes in at a higher price than an inscription without any or most of those options. My advice is if you can add it all plus inscription which would be $68,000+ then go for it. However getting all the packages and options without inscription was great for me. I agree air suspension is a must and the ride is the best I've experienced. The B&W sound system is also a must have if you spend much time on the road. Everyone who gets in is blown away but the sound experience! The only issue I've had is with the backup camera/360 camera, sometimes it fails to work and then once I turn the car off and back on it works again. This has happened a few times but I noticed it's usually when I don't get the car time to load up. It takes less than a minute for the computer system to load but sometimes you don't have that time to wait. Overall I'd highly suggest this car at this point and hope I can report the same thing in several years."
