Editor's Overview

After launching one of the most ambitious design overhauls in modern memory, Volvo’s XC90 crossover SUV for 2017 utterly validates the Swedish automaker’s efforts. The 7-passenger XC90 breaks new ground on a number of fronts, the most obvious under the hood where 4-cylinder turbocharged and supercharged Drive-E gasoline engines replace what would normally be a V6 or V8.

Love my Volvo XC90 and will purchase another one in about 2 years.

Drives well with smooth ride. I feel secure with the safety features in the car. I live in a mountainous region and the off road drive mode is useful. I just love the vehicle and intend to purchase a new one again in about 2 years.

- Dot H

It's very elegant, familiar and good speed. It's worth investing in such a good car.

I love how spacious and comfortable it is. it's design and elegance draws the attention of the people where i'm going. I like to feel important. sometimes the box has been locked.

- christopher s

Smooth ride, safe, comfortable drive. Great family car!

The only issue I have encountered is some electrical components going out. Volvo is quick to resolve issue. Otherwise, great performance and drive. Very safe vehicle.
