Volvo XC90 summary

The midsize luxury SUV made its appearance in 2001.

Volvo was testing the waters then to determine if the concept would be well received.

It made its debut the following year.

It received a restyled front and rear, and its interiors were revised in 2007.

The SUV production shifted to China from Sweden in 2014.

This version had a 235hp engine instead of the 208hp engine.

All XC90 also models received painted wheel arches. There was also a new circular and larger VOLVO logo in the front grille.

In 2012 specific models received new LED-tail lights.

In the year after that, it got a cosmetic facelift that included daytime LED running lights and taillights. It also was fitted with body-colour bumpers and silver trim, which replaced the black plastic trim.

The facelifted model was sold in 2012 at a base price of US $40395.

The latest buzz on the Volvo XC90 is that it is transitioning from diesel to petrol and from petrol to electric, like other cars from the Volvo stable. The 48-volt electric motor of the upgraded version of the 7-seater SUV is the same as in XC60 and S90. But in the XC90, the motor produces 296 bhp and 420 Nm of peak torque. All four wheels get power through its 8-speed automatic transition. There are two variants, namely the Inscription and the Momentum. The former is priced at Rs.80.88 lakhs and the latter at Rs 67.55 lakhs ex-showroom at Surat, where it was launched. It comes in various colours, including Bright Silver, Denim Blue, Crystal White, Ice White, Saville Grey, Onyx Black, and Thunder Grey.

The USP of this Volvo rollout lies in its safety features. It scored full points in Euro NCAP AEB or Autonomous Emergency Braking Car to Car rear-end tests (AEB Interurban & AEB City). It's not for nothing that Volvo flaunts it as the safest car in the world. Furthermore, it had scored a full hundred per cent in the safety assist classification as well. The SUV is way ahead of the competition as far as safety is concerned. In addition, it is also the first car to acquire a maximum score in two autonomous emergency braking tests, AEB Interurban and AEB City. The XC90 offers advanced pedestrian protection functionality, a criterion for which safety regulators have not yet readied testing protocols. Volvo is set to innovate and dominate the field of car safety. It competes in the same category as the BMW X5 (and, by extension, the X6), Audi Q7, Porsche Cayenne, Mercedes GL, the Land Rover Discovery and the Volkswagen Tuareg.

Compared with its competitors, the XC90 has sleek and sophisticated interiors and exteriors. For a vehicle of this size, it feels more agile. In each seat row, there is plenty of space. Although you are paying for the luxury features of the SUV, it still is worth the money you pay for, considering that it has heated front seats on the AWD versions, stunning faux leather upholstery, an impressive 10-speaker sound system, 4-zone climate control, adaptive LED headlights that create better illumination by swivelling as you round through turns and a power sunroof. This car is available in Delhi at an on-road price of Rs.1,04,68,562. It might look overpriced, but given that it is a luxury SUV packed with fascinating features, it makes it worth every penny you pay for.

When you drive the XC90, one of the first things to strike you is the SUV’s acceleration. A car of its size takes just 7.8-seconds to go from 0-60mph.

Unlike its counterparts, the luxury SUV offers plenty of space in each row. Its exteriors and interiors are stunning and made of premium quality materials. Yes, it doesn't provide decent numbers as far as mileage is concerned, but it more than makes up for it with its acceleration. The vehicle is turning to more electric driven options, and the diesel version is not manufactured anymore. You won’t need effort for braking as it has a light feel to it. The seat padding is optimal, and the leather upholstery adds to the luxurious feel.

Features such as the vast outside visibility on the driver’s seat and the low load height of the cargo space, which makes it easy to load and unload cargo, coupled with the roomy and comfortable interiors, makes it a breeze to use and luxurious to drive. It makes the luxury SUV worth all the money you invest.
