The 2016 Volvo XC90, the brand’s most innovative and luxurious model to date, marks a new era of sleeker, smarter cars for Volvo.
Volvo’s new Scalable Product Architecture, the latest standard for all future Volvos, features a slightly larger and lighter body than the previous Volvo models, as well as a completely redesigned chassis. The Scalable Product Architecture also features a completely integrated electrical design that optimizes vehicle dynamics, safety, car body, and infotainment systems. With its updated design, the XC90 commands attention, yet maintains a clean and sophisticated appearance.
Volvo’s latest powertrains mark the start of a new generation of highly efficient and powerful engines for the brand. Called “E-Drive,” the three engine variations–the T5, T6, and T8 plug-in hybrid–all encompass Volvo’s commitment to creating more innovative technologies. “Efficiency” is no long synonymous with lackluster performance. Each Volvo engine is paired to an 8-speed Geartronic automatic transmission.
The T5 is a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 250 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The T6 supercharged engine has a considerable 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Finally, the powerful new T8 option contains the same engine as the T6 with an additional 60-kW, 80 hp electric motor on the rear axle that allows the driver to run on either pure electricity, a hybrid combination, or exclusively on gasoline.
The Volvo XC90 brings an exciting new edge to Volvo’s design language. The vehicle’s’ new floating grille design adorned with the timeless Volvo logo gives an updated twist to a familiar look. The LED daytime running lights are unmistakable, evoking the mythical shape of Thor’s hammer. The tail lights glow as red, vertical curves highlighting the distinctive sweep of the vehicle.
Swedish luxury design has become increasingly sophisticated, and this year is no exception. Enter the spacious seven-seat cabin of the XC90 and surround yourself with soft Nappa leather and birch wood trim. Seats have been redesigned to add more cushion, and combined with ample legroom, make for a comfortable journey.
The XC90 combines Volvo’s relentless commitment to safety with a sleek, updated package for a luxury crossover that’s as stylish as it is efficient. Contact Park Place Volvo today to reserve your 2016 Volvo XC90.
