Volvo XC90

Leave it to Volvo to come up with the safest SUV known to man. No, we're not talking about the stodgy Cross Country here, this is a 2012 Volvo XC90 review for the newest vehicle in the Volvo fleet. With this car, as you can see from the XC90 picture above, Volvo has stepped forward from offering SUV-type vehicles to offering a bona fide contender. An impressive maximum ground clearance of 9.2 inches allows the XC90 to move to light offroad and stand up to the demands of suburban road conditions. And with a host of specially made2012 Volvo XC990 accessories, this vehicle is about as exclusive as a popular Hollywood hotspot. For more XC90 information, read on! And remember, we are the best site on the Web for Volvo specs of any kind.

At the heart of the 2012 Volvo XC90 are, of course, engines that other XC90 reviews say can practically bore through rock. The vehicle comes with either a twin-turbocharged inline 2.9-liter six-cylinder that produces 268 horsepower and 280 pounds-per-foot of torque, or a turbocharged inline 2.5-liter five-cylinder that produces 208 horsepower and 236 pounds-per-foot of torque. The entry-level 2.5T comes with front- or all-wheel drive, and a 5-speed automatic transmission, while the T6 comes standard with a 4-speed automatic, antilock 4-wheel disc brakes, and antiskid/traction control. The maximum tow rating is 5,000 pounds for both engines, meaning that with the appropriate XC90 accessories, you can lug just about anything.

XC90 comes with the choice of 5-passenger seating or 7 with an available 3rd-row bench. Access to the rear is accomplished through a twin tailgate feature with one large and one small drop down tailgate door. Other standard exterior and interior amenities include:

  • Leather upholstery

  • Moonroof

  • Memory for the side mirrors

  • Power passenger seat

  • In-dash six-disc changer

  • Homelink

  • An auto-dimming mirror

Optional features include a Dolby Pro Logic II Surround system with 12 speakers, 18-inch wheels, a wood steering wheel and power retractable side mirrors. Then, of course, there are the famous optional XC90 accessories:

  • A DVD-based navigation system

  • Bi-HID headlamps

  • Park distance control system

  • DVD entertainment system that'll be available in the year.

According to XC90 reviews like ours, this vehicle might do the trick if you're shopping for a luxury or crossover SUV. Don't take our word for it, though ? Inspect XC90 pictures for yourself.

Of course no Volvo would be a Volvo without a profound commitment to safety, and as you'll learn here in our XC90 review, the newest Volvo is no different. To prevent perhaps the most dangerous mishap common to SUVs, Volvo has built this latest model around features such as Roll Stability Control and Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, both of which help prevent rollovers. In case a rollover occurs, the roof of the XC90 is composed of Boron steel, which is four times stronger than conventional steel, offering you and your loved ones even more protection. These are the little ways Volvo makes life safer in the XC90.
