Really Nice Ride
Run_Forest_Run, 12/12/2016
I traded in my VW Touareg Executive, which I loved, for the Volvo. I looked at the Audi Q7, Jag F Pace, and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Lexus don't like the look. BWM, Range Rover, and Benz are not client friendly. I have had 2 X5's and a Super Charged Range Rover (the big boy) so I have driven them extensively. Volvo really out did themselves with the XC 90. The car is super quiet, has a nice ride, the 4 cylinder engine is surprisingly good, and the XC is loaded with technology. Mine has the stock sound system, which frankly is excellent, I wouldn't blow the $2,600 on the upgrade unless you really are a hardcore audiophile. The HUD option, which I would not have ordered, was in the stock vehicle they had, it is okay, but you can't see it with polarized sunglasses! So that seems stupid to me. The self drive mode cool, but likely won't use much, the lane departure nudging constantly is a bit of an annoyance, but I will give it time to get used to. Headlights are insanely bright. The Ipadish controls are a nice clean look, easy to use, and overall seems like a nice option compared to say the Audi's control system and their ridicules pop up screen. This is a high end Crossover. If it is not on the list to test drive and check out you're leaving out a great vehicle.
I love it!
Jack YM, 11/15/2016
This is my third week of driving Volvo XC90 and both my kids and I love it! I have been searching for a replacement for my Honda Odyssey for a while. I have compared Acura MDX, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE, and BMW X5. Eventually, I decided to have the XC90 and have to say that it has exceeded my expectation so far. Initially, I was thinking to buy a MDX given I have had a Honda before and for the value. However, I think the interior of the MDX is not as luxurious as one would expect and with all the options, it is not that "value" anymore, so to speak. Sometimes, people may have experienced "buyer's remorse" wishing you have bought a different car. It never occurred to me. As I said earlier, my kids love riding in this car and I feel good driving the car. The security features are excellent and are one of the main reasons I chose this car. The technology is super and the touch screen central display is very good, simple, clean, and works. One may need take time to learn how it works, just like using ipad or iphone. My car also comes with the "red" key which is nice if you have younger ones driving the car (additional safety features like limiting the driving speed). The only thing it took a little bit more time to make it work is the "Homelink" button for garage door opener. The instruction comes with the car doesn't help much. I went to the "Homelink" website and downloaded the instruction for this specific car. It worked on my first try. I wish it had come with the car a separate sheet/instruction on how to program the "Homelink" button given this would probably the first thing people would do once they drive the car home. Overall, I am very happy and pleased with the car.

This is nice car compared to other cars in same category(acura MDX,BMW X5,Audi Q7) in terms of third row space ,value for the money and technology . I strongly recommend to get Head's up display(HUD) which is 900 $ option as it will help you when you are using semi autonomous feature(pilot assist) and adaptive cruise control feature .
We love our new xc90
Susan MacPherson, 10/10/2016
We owned a 2007 xc90 and just updated it to a 2017. We love all the new features- it is more luxurious and has added conveniences than the older model. But it still has all the aspects we liked in the previous one. We feel great about the purchase.

More about the 2017 Volvo XC90

The 2017 Volvo XC90 may have the most beautiful interior available in any SUV. It's all Scandinavian textures and minimalist elegance. You know, matte wood, brushed metals, tailored upholstery and not too much of anything. In a world of excess, it's a restrained environment. It's practically a sanctuary. It's even, dare we say it, tasteful. And the exterior is pretty Downtown Stockholm groovy too.

But there's also every conceivable luxury aboard. Turn up the volume on the Bowers & Wilkins 19-speaker sound system and the whole car seems to quiver with music. Computers monitor practically everything, and the seats are more comfortable than anything in your house.

Volvo has taken the big leap and committed itself to powering all its vehicles with four-cylinder engines going forward. The standard XC90 powerplant is a 2.0-liter member of Volvo's new “Drive-E” engine family that features direct injection, variable valve timing, and a turbocharger. It's rated at 250 horsepower. Higher trim XC90s get a version of the 2.0-liter Drive-E with a supercharger and a turbocharger that, despite its dinky dimensions, is rated at 316 hp. And if that's not enough, Volvo is also offering a plug-in hybrid version that supplements the twin-charged four with an electric motor for a total of 400 hp. Diesel versions are available in Europe but haven't yet made it to the United States.

An eight-speed automatic transmission makes use of the power no matter how it's generated and feeds either the front wheels or all four of them depending on trim levels. And there are numerous XC90 trim levels, ranging from the T5 Momentum to the T8 Excellence.

The basic front-wheel drive XC90 gets an EPA rating of 24 mpg combined (22 mpg city/26 mpg highway). The plug-in hybrid version will run up to 14 miles on electricity alone and knock out the equivalent to 54 mpg combined when operating in that mode. With the gas engine whirring, that drops to 25 mpg.

Volvo's tradition of leading-edge safety continues with this second-generation XC90. There's a frontal collision detection system that, combined with automatic braking, should prevent some disasters. The seat cushions are energy absorbing, the seat belts are self-tightening and new for 2017 is a lane departure system integrated with automatic steering to keep the XC90 on the road at all times. There's also a semi-autonomous driving mode which lets the XC90 pilot itself at up to 80 mph.

Despite the XC90's strong points, there are many other solid choices out there. No market segment is more crowded or more competitive than that for luxury crossovers. Make sense of it all by starting with Edmunds.com.
