Volvo XC90 generations

Before the release of the XC90 in 2002, Volvo was known for making luxury estates and saloons, but the company quickly became competitive in the SUV segment, making a name for itself. Through two generations, the XC90 continues to be a superb choice for families who desire a luxurious experience. The company continues to release updates, ensuring that the SUV remains a desirable option.

First Generation (2002-2014)

Volvo released a large SUV, known as the XC90, in 2002. At first glance, it looked rugged, but with its seven-seater configuration, it was designed from the ground-up to be suitable for families.

A facelift arrived in 2007 with clear-glass headlamps and redesigned taillights. Volvo also offered various petrol and diesel engines, ensuring that every driver had access to a model that suited their needs.

Second Generation (2015 to Present)

Even though the first generation was popular, Volvo released a new-generation XC90 in 2014 to keep the technology and styling relevant. All of the engines were overhauled as Volvo sought to move towards sustainability. One of the upgraded materials used was a crystal gearshift lever that enhanced the appearance of the cabin.

In 2019, Volvo released a mild refresh filled with high-end materials, including a key wrapped in premium Nappa leather. Even with the upgraded touches, the cabin still featured a minimalistic design.

Used Volvo XC90 FAQ's

Which is the most popular engine in the Volvo XC90?

The diesel engine has been the most popular, with the most recent one providing efficiency of 36.7mpg. The 2.0 D5 outputs 231bhp to create a 0-60mph time of 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 137mph.

Which are the most popular trim levels?

The new XC90 comes in three trims: Core, Plus and Ultra. Yet the most popular was an older trim, known as the R Design. This trim has proven to be popular with its sportier design, full LED lights, electric leather seats and sharper handling thanks to a sporty suspension setup.

What optional extras should I look out for?

For optimal comfort, customers should look out for the front seat ventilation and massage function. There are also premium sound systems available from Harman Kardon or Bowers & Wilkins.

Is the Volvo XC90 a good family car?

Yes, with seven seats that are spacious and supportive, the XC90 is a fantastic family car. The middle row of seats can be slid backwards or reclined separately from the others, allowing for a customised cabin space.

Is there a hybrid version of the Volvo XC90?

Yes, look out for the 2.0-litre T8 h plug-in hybrid configuration. The most recent iteration makes 448bhp and is very fast with a 0-60mph time of 5.2 seconds. With a full charge, it can provide up to 55.3 miles of electric-only travel. Older versions of the T8 h were slightly slower and only offered around 27 miles of electric travel.

Is the Volvo XC90 available as an automatic?

Most XC90s are equipped with an automatic gearbox. There was a manual transmission offered, but only for a short time, so these are much harder to find than the automatics among used cars.

Is there a four-wheel drive version available?

Yes, Volvo has equipped every XC90 with standard all-wheel drive. With the added capability, drivers have more confidence when navigating rough terrain or if the roads are slippery, thanks to the added traction and grip.
