2016 CAR OF THE YEAR

The jury put us first. A place we usually reserve for our customers.

ATTENTION TO DETAIL

The art of craft

Every element works in harmony, made from the finest materials—like soft leather, and grainy wood. With unique details like a crystal gearshift lever and ventilated front seats inspired by the human form with massage functions and four-way electric lumbar support.

INTELLIGENT POWER

No compromises

We’ve improved the XC90’s power and environmental footprint. Embodying our mantra that you don’t need to sacrifice power and superb drivability for efficiency and low CO2 emissions. With different driving modes, like, Comfort and Off Road, for any mood and any terrain.
