Okay, you good mommies and daddies, you who pledge to do anything to protect your children, we recommend you delay the purchase of your next family car until you read why we've chosen the 2016 Volvo XC90 as our Top Pick for Parents.
First, however, let’s recognize that elephantine dollar sign in the room: The redesigned Volvo XC90 is not cheap. The base price for the XC90 T5 with front-wheel drive is $44,945, and that’s before you add any options, like metallic paint, or heated front seats, or a blind spot warning system. Oh, you wanted seating for seven people? That brings the price tag to $53,155, at a minimum.
No, the new Volvo XC90, which earned Autobytel's nod as the best Luxury SUV/Crossover of the Year, is not the most affordable way to transport a family. But, if you have the means, the 2016 XC90 is an excellent pick — in fact, it's our number one pick — for parents looking to shuttle loved ones safely and securely in style, comfort, and luxury.
Let’s take a closer look at the 2016 Volvo XC90.
