2007 Volvo XC90 | new car review

Posted on Jun 25, 2009 by

The XC90 was launched in early 2002 as the first purpose-built SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) to come from Cars. It is also ’s first seven-seat car since the 1940s. It has electronically controlled All-Wheel Drive, giving it the capacity to forge ahead on very poor roads, but is primarily intended as a spacious passenger car with excellent driving manners, immense safety and intelligent versatility.

This five-door SUV is considered a crossover model that combines the passenger car’s comfort and comfort with excellent get-you-there ability and flexibility.

The XC90 is designed to give a robust yet at the same time compact and elegant impression. It is built as a passenger car, with a unitary body and the same type of chassis as that found in Volvo’s sedan models – unlike some other SUV models that are built on a truck chassis.

The XC90 comes with five or seven seats, depending on specification. The passenger compartment is very spacious, thanks not least to Volvo’s modern powertrain concept with transverse engine installation. The seats are placed high to give the driver a commanding view over the traffic and the passengers a comfortable seating position. All the passenger seats can be folded.

The tailgate is divided into an upper and a lower section. This makes the XC90 a very flexible and versatile car. The top model in the range is the XC90 Executive, which features equipment and comfort of exceptional quality.

The was launched with a range of five and six-cylinder engines. The latest T6 engine is a potent high-performance unit with twin turbochargers.  At the very top end there is a 4.4 litre V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
