What is so exciting about the new Volvo XC90 when that model has been out for years?


The luxury Volvo SUV that we’ve long been waiting for is the fully-redesigned 2016 XC90 that is a new vehicle in so many ways and is the most exciting of all the Volvo models. Its elegant Swedish design, enhanced by a bold front grille and pronounced front and rear lights, are unmistakably Volvo. And as good as it looks in the photo; the all-new XC90 is even more impressive in person.

There are three all-wheel drive engines to choose from – the Inscription, Momentum and R-Design – all with in-line 4-cylinder, supercharged and turbocharged engines. The standard features of the Volvo XC90 (the Momentum model) includes a 316 horsepower engine turbo/supercharger, 8-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, 4-wheel anti-lock brakes, an integrated navigation system, side seat mounted airbags; first, second and third-row overhead airbags, driver knee airbag, airbag occupancy sensor, automatic air conditioning, 19″ aluminum wheels, cruise control, an anti-lock braking system and driveline traction control. This is truly the hallmark of Volvo—the safest vehicles on the road!

U.S. News and World Report named the 2016 XC90 to the Best Cars list. The 2016 XC90 returns an EPA-estimated 20/25 mpg city/highway, and Volvo expects the hybrid to return 59 miles-per-gallon-equivalent combined city/highway, according to their review.

The 2016 Volvo XC90 seats up to seven and comes standard with heated and power-adjustable front seats, four-zone automatic climate control, a 10-speaker audio system, satellite radio, a USB port, Volvo’s Senses infotainment system (with a 9-inch touch-screen), front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning and front collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic braking. Leather upholstery, heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, a 19-speaker Bowers & Wilkins audio system, HD radio, navigation, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, rear collision warning, automatic parallel and perpendicular parking assist and a surround-view camera system are available. It even has a Wi-Fi hot spot so you’re always connected.

What more could you possibly ask for that is not in this luxury edition? A limited number of the XC90s have been produced and a limited number are currently available at Jaffarian Volvo. Come in and see this magnificent model in person; and if you’re in the market for this top-of-the-line luxury vehicle, take it for a test drive. You can even schedule a test drive on line.

Ever heard the expression “poetry in motion”? That describes the XC90 so I thought I end with my impression of this superior vehicle in that manner – the only vehicle to ever inspire me in this way!

Ode to the Volvo 2016 XC90 SUV

Natural and intuitive
Elegant, yet uncomplicated
Soft leather and grainy wood
With a crystal gearshift lever
Ventilated front seats
Four-way electric lumbar support
Like driving with a massage
Simplicity with advanced technology
You exemplify brilliance and safety
The XC90 truly is poetry in motion

The anticipation was well worth it! Come visit us and see for yourself!
