"This thing plants a tasteful Scandinavian ax between the ears of several prominent players, including the BMW X5, Audi Q7 and the relevant Lincoln." -- Wall Street Journal

The all-new Volvo XC90, designed around you. Drawing on the best of Scandinavian design, the all-new XC90 offers a refreshingly elegant and modern interior, that is effortlessly beautiful and crafted from only the finest materials.
The 2016 Volvo XC90 is a stylish and luxurious SUV that has something for everyone. Whether you are the driver or a passenger, the well-rounded and well-equipped XC90 is a vehicle that you will enjoy. 

Not only is the stylish exterior sure to please the eye, but the XC90's luxurious interior stands out as well with its high quality craftsmanship, giving both front and rear passengers a very comfortable ride. The XC90 carries the largest passenger space of any vehicle of its size, allowing you quite a bit of room to stretch your legs. The convenient 40/20/40 split seating gives many seating positions which can accommodate many kinds of cargo. The XC90 has many available interior options such as leather seats and red wood inlays. The gauges and controls are quite well-placed and user-friendly. 

The new and improved 2016 Volvo XC90 is also well-equipped when it comes to its powertrain and performance. Every model comes with a 3.2 liter inline six cylinder engine that gives out 240 horsepower along with 236 pounds per feet of torque. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive, as well as a lighter, longer, and wider design.

The XC90 boasts many safety features, earning it the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). This vehicle's standard safety features include antilock brakes, front-seat side-impact bags, stability control, anti-whiplash front seats, full-length side curtain airbags, and a convenient child booster seat included in the center position of the second row. Some of the optional safety features include a rearview camera and a blind spot warning system.

The XC90 comes in two well-equipped trim levels: the 3.2 and the R-Design. The 3.2 trim level comes standard with 18-inch alloy wheels, fog lights, a sunroof, heated mirrors, rear privacy glass, dual-zone automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, leather seating, memorized settings, 40/20/40-split second-row seats, a 50/50-split third row seat, auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth , and an eight-speaker audio system equipped with a CD player, satellite radio, an auxiliary input jack, and a USB audio interface.

Other options are also available such as a rear-seat entertainment system. 
Volvo has long been known for building cars with top-notch safety features, but in the last few years they've also worked hard to show the public that they could not only build cars with legendary safety features, but also design cars that are the epitome of Scandinavian luxury.

Volvo gave a taste of these design notes with the Concept Trilogy that was revealed between 2013 and 2014 at key auto shows. We're finally starting to see traces of those designs in upcoming models, including the 2016 Volvo XC90.

We love the wide open cabin space that is filled with luxurious appointments and attention to detail that is clean. While some luxury brands are flashy, Volvo has always taken a more subdued note and we love how they are still able to create an extra-luxe interior space.

Adding to Volvo's growing list of "world's first" safety technology, the XC90 will feature a system focused entirely on protection from accidental road departures. Nearly half of all fatal accidents in the U.S. are road departure accidents, so Volvo has taken measures to protect occupants from severe injuries should your vehicle leave the road. 

With pre-tensing seat belts and active shock absorbers in the seat mounts, the XC90 is the safest place to be should you leave the road unexpectedly.

The 2016 Volvo XC90 is equipped with a cross-traffic sensor to protect against head-on collisions  Volvo was one of the first automakers to introduce automatic emergency braking with the XC60  The frame of the 2016 XC90 is made from 40 percent super-high-strength boron steel Enlarge

Additionally, the 2016 XC90 offers the first auto-braking at an intersection when turning into oncoming traffic. If a driver is making a turn across traffic and the car senses an unseen approaching vehicle, the brakes are automatically deployed to prevent a head-on collision.

Should an accident still occur despite these features, drivers can rest easy knowing that the 40 percent of the frame of the XC90 is composed of hot-formed boron steel, the strongest type of steel used in the car industry.

Volvo's rest stop guidance feature suggests that you take a break from driving if you seem drowsy, and finds rest stops for you.

Quick Quote

Pedestrian Detection In Darkness:
This is a world-first technology that enables a vehicle to detect objects ahead, such as other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists, even in the dark. A warning will first be provided and if this is still not sufficient the vehicle will be able to automatically apply the brakes to prevent an impact.

Road Edge And Barrier Detection With Steer Assist: Similar to lane-departure warning systems, this feature will detect if a vehicle is about to drive off the road edge and automatically straighten its path by adjusting the steering. The benefit over current lane-departure warning systems is that it even works on roads without side markings.

Adaptive Cruise Control With Steer Assist: Similar to autonomous systems already launched or being tested by other automakers, this technology helps a vehicle stay in the lane and follow the rhythm of the traffic by constantly monitoring its surroundings.

Animal Detection: Similar to current pedestrian detection systems, this technology is able to detect a variety of animal shapes and movement patterns, in both daylight and in the dark. The technology will provide warnings in advance and slow a vehicle so that the speed of impact is minimized if a crash is unavoidable.

Car 2 Car Communication:  As part of its Vision 2020 goal to eliminate death or serious injury for anyone riding in one of its cars, Volvo will start launching technology that allows its cars to communicate with other vehicles and their surroundings. Volvo has already outlined a long list of benefits of such technology.

Autonomous Parking: Volvo recently demonstrated technology that will eventually allow a driver to drop his or her car off at the entrance of a parking garage and then, via smartphone, tell the car to go park itself. Before you get too excited, Volvo's autonomous parking system won't work in any car park. It relies on communication between the car and the car park infrastructure in order to find a vacant spot. Importantly, it will be able to avoid objects or pedestrians already in the car park.

As most of these technologies are being developed in conjunction with Volvo's new SPA platform that will underpin the next XC90 as well as Volvo's future mid- to large-size cars, it means that more models, including future versions of the popular S60 and XC60 crossovers as well as the eventual replacement for the S80, will also feature many of them.
