1.2019 Volvo XC90 Specs and Features
Every version of the XC90 features permanent four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox with manual mode. Hill descent and hill start control are both fitted, although the Volvo is more suited to tarmac use than hard off-roading. Like the rest of the Volvo range, the XC90 comes in Momentum, R-Design and Inscription specs, and that means all models are well equipped, even if you choose the least expensive variant. Standard kit includes adaptive cruise control, keyless starting, auto LED headlights and wipers, a reversing camera, park assist, a hands-free power tailgate, two-zone climate control, electrically adjustable heated leather seats and Volvo’s excellent portrait-mounted touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth, nav and connected services.
2 Interior, Cargo and Infotainment
The XC90 impresses with its sleek cabin and top-notch interior materials. Most surfaces are covered in leather, and real wood trim pieces further distinguish the XC90’s interior as one of the nicest in this segment. The XC90 has more cargo room than nearly every other SUV in the luxury midsize SUV class. There’s 15.8 cubic feet of space behind the last row of seats, and 41.8 cubic feet with the third row folded down. With both the second and third rows folded, the XC90 offers an excellent 85.7 cubic feet of space. A hands-free liftgate is standard. The standard 9-inch touch screen sits vertically on the dashboard, and it’s more reminiscent of a tablet than an infotainment screen. This screen controls most of the car’s cabin functions, including adjusting the temperature, and there’s a small row of physical buttons and knobs below the touch screen that allow you to quickly adjust the audio system.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2019 XC90 a five-star overall crash test rating. The XC90 received five out of five stars in the frontal and side crash tests and four stars in the rollover test.
The 2019 XC90 prioritizes quality, value, and practicality, you can’t go wrong with it.
