Although Volvo has a long history of coupes, sedans and wagons, the face of the brand is the 2017 Volvo XC90, its largest and most expensive SUV.
First introduced in 2003, the 7-passenger SUV immediately found a loyal following and triggered a resurgence of Volvo in the United States. It proved so popular, it remained in production, essentially unchanged, for more than a decade.
Volvo introduced the all-new second-generation of its flagship SUV in 2015 with increased levels of safety, fuel economy and technology, and the popularity of the vehicle exploded once again. Two years later, the XC90 continues to stand out with inspired style, an upscale interior, and an adventurous, fun to drive personality. Plus, it’s one of just four vehicles in the midsize luxury SUV segment available as a plug-in hybrid.
Built in Sweden, the family-friendly 2017 Volvo XC90 competes very successfully against a long list of popular, high-quality SUVs including the Acura MDX, Audi Q7, BMW X5, Lexus RX, Cadillac XT5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE.
