Volvo XC90: The Spacious Luxury SUV

For the most luxurious experience you can find in a large SUV, look no further than the Volvo XC90. The XC90 Excellence is downright limousine-like in terms of features and space, while the other models of the XC90 provide the luxury that you dream for in a premium-car. In addition to a range of trims, the XC90 offers multiple engines, such as a plug-in hybrid powertrain that can help the planet and your pocketbook without a negative impact on performance.

The Volvo XC90's seating capacity is customizable depending on trim. It is ready to seat four to seven passengers while still allowing you to store plenty of cargo. It also has all the versatility you could want from an SUV with rear seats that split and fold down to hold as much as 85.7 cubic feet worth of everything from furry friends to furniture. Sharing the SUV with your family isn't a problem, either. The Driver Profiles save your preferences and link them to your key fob so everything will be perfectly positioned as soon as you unlock the doors of the XC90. These features and perks are only some of the great things about the Volvo XC90. To view more specifics or test drive a certain one, come visit us at Berglund Volvo of Roanoke in Virginia.

The New Features of the 2017 Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 was already an impressive vehicle, but the 2017 model year has gotten even better. The biggest news is the addition of the XC90 Excellence model, which comes standard with the T8 Plug-In Hybrid. Instead of seating for five or seven, the Excellence only seats four, allowing for an impressive area to stretch out in. The rear seats are heated and cooled, and you get folding tables in the style of those found on airlines, along with an integrated fridge.

In addition to the new XC90 Excellence, the 2017 XC90 sees a handful of other updates, mostly to technology. Pilot Assist II is the latest variation of Volvo's semiautonomous driving system that will let the vehicle brake, steer, and accelerate itself when you are driving at 80 mph or less. By comparison, in the 2016 model, the system worked at only speeds of up to 30 mph. The City Safety system has also been updated to include run-off road mitigation, which can steer you back into your lane, and Large Animal Detection. New applications in the Volvo XC90's store include Spotify, the familiar music streaming service, and Park and Pay, a parking app. You will also find a new Record & Send feature and a new Connect Service Booking app for scheduling your XC90's service.

How the Current XC90 Came to Be

Volvo started selling the XC90 in 2003, giving drivers a sleek and luxurious SUV with all the comforts and safety features they could want. For 2004, the tires and wheels were upgraded, while the exterior colors were expanded. The previously available turbocharged 6-cylinder engine left the lineup in 2006, which is also when all-wheel drive became available. For 2007, the XC90's body was updated, and all models got standard features like an input jack for an MP3 player and a tire-pressure monitoring system. The 2008 XC90 got a standard auto-dimming rearview mirror and an available Special Edition trim.

The V8 Sport model left the XC90's lineup for 2009, which is also when minor trim tweaks occurred. For 2010, the Volvo got the third row of seats as standard, along with extra rear parking assist and smoother handling. The standard features grew to include Bluetooth* and satellite radio for 2011, and the V8 got dropped for 2012. The 2013 and 2014 models each saw minor updates to styling along with more LED lighting.
