Outstanding Reviews On The 2016 XC90



If you haven't read reviews on the all-new 2016 Volvo XC90, we encourage you to do so!

We collected just a handful of reviews--and it is unanimous, the all-new 2016 XC90 outshines every competitor in its segment! To read the full reviews, click on the blue links below.

Edmunds' Review:
"If the pre-production model we drove through Spain is any indication, it was well worth the wait."
"With predictable and responsive steering, the XC90 never behaved like the big SUV it is."
"It's a modern interpretation of the brand, with smoothed-out lines and contemporary accents."

Forbes' Review:
“The results are impressive, and built on the familiar Volvo virtues of safety, comfort and Scandinavian design flair.”
“XC90’s stealth luxury and all-around competence may be just the combination that brings that future into focus.”

Autoblog's Review
"These are the best front seats in the segment."
“I think I can recognize a really good, well-suited product when I drive one. This XC90 seems to be absolutely that, a just-right sized, spec'd and priced SUV from a company that has feverishly prepped it to be a breakout hit.”

Auto World News' Review
“Get used to seeing this SUV everywhere.”
“Gorgeous look, mighty power from a small heart, exemplary outward visibility, plush interior, generous third-row space, outstanding value for money.”
The 2016 Volvo XC90's 'word cloud,' which illustrates the most used words in the XC90's reviews.

No Surprise to us...IIHS Awards Volvo Once Again

Volvo Cars has once again performed very well in the annual IIHS Top Safety Pick+ Awards. In this year's honours list four Volvo cars made the Top Safety Pick+ grade: the S60, V60, S80 and XC60. Volvo Cars was the only European brand with more than two models on the list.

 

“Volvo Cars' commitment to real-life safety and our Vision 2020, which states that no one will be killed or seriously injured in or by a new Volvo car, underlines our approach towards continuous improvement in this field. At Volvo Cars we focus on real-life safety - reflecting the many and varied causes and results of car accidents. It is of course a wonderful thing that we receive such honours and recognition for our advanced safety innovations from leading safety institutes,” said Dr. Peter Mertens, Senior Vice President Research & Development at Volvo Cars.

 

The Tops Safety Pick+ award criteria have grown tougher in the last twelve months, with increased demands around the standard for front crash prevention. To meet the new criteria cars making the Top Safety Pick+ grade must offer the ability to stop or slow down without driver intervention before hitting a target in IIHS tests at 12 mph, 25 mph or both.

 

Volvo Car’s front crash avoidance technology, City Safety, which is standard in all new Volvos, effectively helps to detect and brake automatically to mitigate or prevent a car to car rear end collision without driver intervention. Volvo’s City Safety technology has been shown to reduce insurance claim frequency by 16 percent*.

 

“Volvo Cars has received much recognition during its long history of safety driving the industry forward. A perfect example of this is the three-point safety belt, invented at Volvo in 1959 and now used globally by all car makers. With the sales start of the All-New XC90 in 2015 Volvo Cars will offer the world’s most advanced crash avoidance technology as standard,” said Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo Cars.

The Cross Country Family is Growing: The All-New Volvo V60 Cross Country


Say hello to the next generation of Cross Country...the all-new Volvo V60 Cross Country. Available in early 2015, the V60 Cross Country is the perfect fit for those with an active lifestyle. Plenty of room for gear, plenty of ground clearance to get virtually anywhere you want to go. Taking the Cross Country concept to a new level of sportiness and style.

 
Here's the press release from Volvo:
 
“We are delighted to add the third true Cross Country model to our product portfolio. The successful combination of dynamic styling and rugged capability places the V60 Cross Country in a class of its own,” said Lex Kerssemakers, Senior Vice President Product Strategy and Vehicle Line Management at Volvo Cars.
 
Heritage
The Cross Country brand has a long and distinguished heritage. Volvo Cars was the first premium brand to offer increased all-road capability and styling on its wagons as far back as 1997 when it introduced the V70 Cross Country, creating a whole new type of car experience that has since captured the imagination of the motoring public.
 
Reflecting Volvo’s Scandinavian heritage and love of nature and adventure, the V60 Cross Country brings together the best of both worlds – a sporty, connected yet comfortable driving experience with the freedom to explore new horizons.
Sporty capability
“With ground clearance increased 65mm compared to the V60, the Cross Country’s sturdy construction offers unparalleled control on and off the beaten track, coupled with an enhanced sporty driving experience thanks to torque vectoring technology and corner traction control. The V60 Cross Country really is a getaway car – enabling an adventurous lifestyle in pure rugged form,” said Lex Kerssemakers.
 
Offering new Cross Country 18” and 19” wheels, the V60 Cross Country comes with high profile tyres, adding comfort and off-road aesthetics, reducing road noise and providing added wheel protection whether climbing kerbs or negotiating rocky roads.
 
Rugged individualist design
Central to the Cross Country concept is the expression of go-anywhere capability and rugged design. It caters to those who have an active lifestyle, favoring the dirt road over the paved, handling either with ease. This is manifested in the V60 Cross Country through explicit design cues that heighten the adventurous nature of the car. With increased ground clearance, skid plates front and rear, side scuff plates and fender extenders, the V60 Cross Country conveys an imposing, muscular presence that underlies its capable nature, while integrated tailpipes reflect its sporty dark side. To complement the capable exterior styling, sports seats in black leather with distinctive brown stitching will be available from launch, while two new two-tone leather upholsteries will be offered to coincide with the EU and Rest of World Launch in early 2015.
 
Powertrains
The US and Canada will get the first V60 Cross Country cars, and they will launch with Volvo’s iconic five cylinder 250 hp petrol engine with All-Wheel Drive coupled to an automatic transmission delivering a highly competitive 23 mpg.
