About the Volvo XC90

Unlike any full-size three-row SUV in its class, the stunning Volvo XC90 delivers seductive styling, premium comfort amenities, and groundbreaking driver-assistive safety technologies which inspire confidence. Starting at $47,700 MSRP for an XC90 T5 Momentum FWD which seats 7 passengers, you'll also have the ability to equip your XC90 with available all-wheel drive for maximum control in even the harshest weather conditions. Other trim options include the luxurious Inscription, sport-focused R-Design, and the flagship Excellence which sets the benchmark for a plug-in hybrid SUV. Regardless of which you choose, you will enjoy standard features such as a panoramic sunroof, CleanZone Air Quality System, and Volvo On Call services.

Perfect for your next weekend getaway, the XC90 features generous seating for up to 7 full-sized adults. Every seat is tailored specifically to deliver the utmost comfort while the interior boasts a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity -- perfect for a weekend's worth of luggage. Several turbocharged and supercharged engines are offered on the XC90, ranging from 250 horsepower up to the range-topping 400 horsepower from the T8 Hybrid powertrain. The Volvo XC90 offers uninhibited styling combined with innovative technology to create an unmistakable luxury SUV.

What the Critics Say

"One reason we like the XC90 so much is that it's far prettier than any of its competition. It's easy for a three-row crossover to turn out as a dull box, but Volvo's designers manage to drape delicate sheetmetal over the XC90's bones in a way that draws the eye. On this tester, the graceful Denim Blue bodywork contrasts against chrome and brushed-metal accents. Bold lighting elements, with LEDs and the well-known "Thor's Hammer" running lights, also add curb appeal." -- Roadshow by CNET

"The 2019 Volvo XC90 is the Swedish automaker's flagship SUV, a 3-row luxury vehicle that drips with alluring design and sophisticated features. As is Volvo's maxim, safety comes in spades in the XC90. Standard systems do everything from prevent a collision with a vehicle in your blind spot to automatically apply the brakes if an animal or other object is in the road. In addition to being a tech and safety powerhouse, the XC90 deftly competes with luxury-crossover SUVs like the Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Acura MDX thanks to innovative powertrains, including a plug-in hybrid variant." -- Kelley Blue Book

What's New for 2019

Although the Volvo XC90 enters 2019 with the same powertrain options as the previous year, there are numerous updates and changes worth highlighting. All 2019 XC90 models now come standard with updated infotainment software, heated washer nozzles, four-zone climate control, and third-row seating. Upper trims now include rear window sunshades, navigation, a tailored dashboard, and a Harman/Kardon premium audio system. Both the Convenience and Momentum Plus packages which we offered last year have been discontinued. These two have been replaced by new Advanced and Multimedia packages. The standalone options list has been revised and the availability of both interior and exterior colors have been expanded.

2019 Volvo XC90 Powertrain Options

Multiple Powertrain Options

The T5 and T6 engines are two of the most popular powertrain choices available on the XC90. Although both are each 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engines, there is one key difference that separates the two. The T5 features a single turbocharger while the T6 is twin-charged, meaning that both a supercharger and a turbocharger work in tandem to deliver power.

Available in both Front Wheel Drive (FWD) and All-Wheel Drive (AWD) configurations, the T5 produces a balanced 250 horsepower. In comparison, T6 models feature 316 horsepower and are available exclusively with all-wheel drive. Sitting atop the range is a T8 Plug-In Hybrid engine which delivers E-AWD, 400 combined system horsepower, and an exceptional 54 MPGe fuel economy equivalent**.

Refined Interior

The Volvo XC90 offers an interior which features not only elegant styling, but also spacious cargo room. The leather upholstery and aluminum and wood accents expresses the Scandinavian design and the 50/50 third row offers best-in-class legroom of 36 inches. And with up to 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, the XC90 can accommodate any weekend adventure.

Built-in Wi-Fi ensures you and your guests will always be connected. Available Sensus Navigation will help you get to your destination with its 3D imaging, voice recognition and routing options.

Volvo XC90 Towing Capacity

The 2019 Volvo XC90 has a maximum towing capacity of 4,000-5,000 pounds when properly equipped with the available towing package. T5 front-wheel-drive models can tow up to 4,000 pounds. All other XC90 models have a 5,000 pound maximum towing rating, giving you plenty of power for towing a small boat, pair of jet skis, or a small pop-up camping trailer. Combined with a massive 85.7 cubic feet of cargo space, XC90 is ready for your next weekend vacation.

XC90 has an available air suspension system on all four wheels. This system comes in handy when loading cargo or hitching up a trailer. Simply press a button inside the cargo area to lower the rear of the car by up to 2 inches, giving easier access for loading cargo or lining up a trailer to its hitch.
