The Volvo XC90 benefits from a handsome, sculpted look that goes much deeper than the sheet metal. Nowhere is this more obvious than under the hood, where the goals of improved fuel economy and improved power are seemingly at odds with one another. Power comes from a 2.0L engine that is both supercharged and turbocharged. The result is an almost unbelievable 316 horsepower with fuel economy ratings of 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. All-wheel drive is standard on the Volvo XC90 and an 8-speed automatic is the only transmission choice.
The 2022 XC90 is offered in two trims: Momentum, and Inscription, the base Momentum comes with plenty of luxury features, as is generally expected in this class. Standard items include heated windshield washer nozzles, four-zone automatic climate control, 10-way power adjustable and heated front seats, power rear headrests, a panoramic power sunroof, a navigation system, a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors, 19-inch wheels, and satellite radio with a 3-month subscription.
The Inscription model includes exterior chrome accents, Nappa leather upholstery, vented front seats, aluminum roof rails, rear sunshades and a dash accented with walnut and leather.
The XC90 wouldn't be a Volvo if it didn't offer world-class, innovative safety systems. In addition to features like lane keep assist and blind spot warning, Volvo's Pilot Assist II driver assistance technologies allow the XC90 to steer and brake autonomously at speeds up to 80 mph, while its City Safety suite provides features like run-off road mitigation and large animal detection.
