Volvo XC90 gets completely redesigned for 2016

The 2016 Volvo XC90 gets a luxurious next generation redesign

The Volvo XC90 gets a complete redesign for 2016. This is the first upgrade to the model in twelve years, making it fundamentally different than previous models. New features are saturated into the redesign including, safety feature updates, trim and sculpting features, interior space optimization, as well as engineering for the engine and performance of the SUV. U.S. News has rated the 2016 Vol o XC90 in their top 10 Luxury Midsize SUvs, proving that the redesign brings a luxurious rival to other SUVs within its class.

Luxurious Exterior Sculpting

The exterior of the 2016 XC90 has a definitive flare for luxury. This is accomplished by eliminating the boxier headlight system typical of the larger SUVs and replacing them with slimmer lighting which is more in-line with modern design demands. Available LED adaptive headlights and LED running lights can further add to the luxurious feel. 

In addition to the headlight and the unique curvature of the taillight system, the overall sculpting of the 2016 Volvo XC90 has the curvature desired in a luxury class SUV. Notable from the side view of the vehicle, the front sculpting bevels the angles to transition the front to the cabin smoothly. Additional rounding of the rear of the vehicle completes the sleek design as well as provides a means in which to reduce drag. Where the curves are the dominant feature of the exterior sculpting on the XC90, angular accents have been added throughout the sculpting to convey the power and performance under the hood. 

There are various model and trim configurations for the 2016 Volvo XC90. These are the T5,T6, and T8 which are offered in the three trim options: Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription. The base model is a T5 Momentum which comes with 18 inch wheels, LED fog lighting, Panoramic sunroof, and hands-free power tailgate. Standard features will vary depending on the model and trim that you select. Please contact your dealership about the best option to meet your driving needs.

Interior Features and Options

The interior of the 2016 Volvo XC90 sits 5 to 7 passengers depending upon the model that you choose. Standard on the XC90 are 60/40 rear folding seats. In vehicles which opt for the third row seating, such can be folded down as well to maximize the cargo area. Even with the 7 passenger seating configuration, legroom and headroom (for the rear passengers) is suitable for the standard sized adult. According to motortrend “The XC90’s more upright dimensions means it has generous amounts of space for people and gear. “ with “the third row is best suited for children on long drives or adults in a pinch.”

Materials on the interior vary from vinyl to leather depending on the trim selection chosen. Front dash design has a digital gauge cluster which couples with the infotainment system. The infotainment system allows for various features to be accessed including GPS and Emergency assistance when paired with the proper subscription app. Additional driver enhancement features are available including:

  • Rear Collision Warning system
  • Front Collision Warning System
  • Lane Drift Detection
  • Auto diming mirrors
  • Keyless entry and ignition
  • Integrated voice controls
