About VOLVO XC90

Thirteen years since it was introduced in the Indian market, Volvo finally released its 2nd Generation Volvo XC90 in 2014. The muscular styling and flared wheels gives the car a much more modern look than the last generation. The bi-xenon headlamps, fog lamps and headlights' levelling add a lot to the exterior. The cabin has a cockpit style control panel that makes it easy for the driver to access. The leather used is premium quality. The interiors are spacious. The handles have a silver finish. The storage boot is quite spacious and the cabin has utilities like cup holders, ticket holders and a console box.

The diesel engine is the D5 AWD that has a capacity of 2400cc.

Our Verdict

The Volvo XC90 luxury SUV is a good combination of competence, style, safety and equipment. And the new generation XC90 is a practical, well-powered family vehicle, a 7-seater with good boot space. And with this SUV, Volvo is thinking differently by appealing to a niche audience, they are offering a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine which some people would like and may put off core SUV lovers as it seems more of a soft roader and not an off-roader. But either way, Volvo places itself in the premium SUV segment delivering a thoughtful vehicle that is safe, spacious, efficient and perfect for the family.
