Comprising the luxury model’s exterior package are chrome and matte silver trims that complement the XC90’s sportiness with refinement. LED headlamps bearing the iconic “Thor’s hammer” design flank both sides of the restyled grille, accompanied by LED daytime running lights. 

A panoramic roof complements the XC90’s dignified profile, all the way to the wide hands-free power tailgate surrounded by slender LED tail lamps. The crossover wears 20-inch Black Diamond Cut alloy wheels that enhance its presence.  

The interior is awash in the finest Swedish materials, featuring three-row seating. A 4-zone climate control system works with an advanced Cleanzone with Air Quality PM 2.5 air filter to ensure that everyone on board can breathe easy, no matter how long the drive is.

Standard tech fare includes a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, heads-up display, a Sensus 12-inch portrait infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, voice control, and remote features via the Volvo Cars app. 

A plethora of driver-assist features are offered on the XC90, among them Collision Avoidance & Mitigation with Intersection Support, Front & Rear Collision Warning, Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Aid, and Driver Alert Control. Multiple airbags work with the Side Impact Protection System and Whiplash Protection System for occupant protection, while a 360-degree Surround View Camera helps remove blind spots. 

Sitting under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 313 horsepower and 460 Nm of torque, thanks to the Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) powered by a 48-volt lithium-ion battery. Paired with an 8-speed Geartonic automatic gearbox, this results in improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.
