  • Preventive safety
    DSTC anti-skid system

    By helping to prevent fishtails, spinouts and rollovers, stability control technology like DSTC has been described as one of the most vital safety advances of the past decade. At the core of DSTC, a gyroscope senses the car’s direction and compares it with steering wheel movements as well as the actual rotation of the car’s wheels. DSTC is able to detect a potential skid and help counteract this by reducing the engine’s power output or braking on one or more wheels.

    Image2
    Roll Stability Control (RSC)

    In the event of an emergency manoeuvre, Volvo’s Roll Stability Control (RSC) can step in to help prevent the vehicle from rolling over. It features a gyroscopic sensor that registers the vehicle’s lean angle and rollover risk. If required, RSC will cut engine power or brake one or more of the wheels just enough to reduce the centrifugal force and help regain balance.

    Image2
    Anti-locking brakes with Emergency Brake Assistance (EBA)

    Generously dimensioned anti-locking, ventilated disc brakes help to ensure a short stopping distance in all situations. You can brake as hard as you like as you steer clear of trouble. Furthermore, they withstand tough use without fading. EBA detects an attempted emergency braking and, when necessary, provides added assistance to bring the vehicle to a standstill in the shortest possible distance. Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD) distributes the braking effect between the front and rear wheels to achieve optimal results according to load and driving conditions.

    Image2
    Dual Xenon lights

    For even better night vision, there’s the option of Dual Xenon gas discharge lamps. Compared to conventional halogen headlamps, Dual Xenon headlights expand your vision range by about 230%. This means you’ll gain a further 45 metres for braking. Independent of the load, these headlights self-adjust to maintain the correct angle to the road – even during hard acceleration or braking.

    Image2
    Active Bending Lights (ABL)

    In addition to improving illumination by about 230% using Dual Xenon light technology, the Active Bending Lights give a 90% boost to your vision round bends at night. Controlled by microprocessors, the motorised lamps turn up to 15 degrees in either direction when driving – reliably lighting up your chosen path. A twilight sensor disengages the adaptive function during daylight.

    Image2
    LED dayrunning lights

    Automatically activated during daylight, these energy efficient LED lights make your car more conspicuous. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. What’s more, the spoiler integrated LED lights also add to the distinct styling of your Volvo.

    Image2
    Side-marker lamps

    Integrated front and rear side-marker lamps help alert other drivers to your car’s presence.

    Image2
    Water-repellent front side windows

    To provide far better visibility in the rain, your Volvo’s front side windows help repel water as you drive. The hydrophobic surface treatment turns water into small drops that will be blown away by the force of the wind. This also gives you the benefit of less ice or frost in winter conditions. This option is offered in combination with laminated windows.

    Image2
    Warning triangle

    This lightweight wide-angle reflector stands upright to alert other road users even in strong winds and on slippery surfaces. It folds easily and stores in its own case.

    Image2
  • Protective safety
    Boron steel reinforced passenger compartment

    In an accident, your car's front and rear crumple zones dissipate and distribute the impact around the car, while the roof pillars and transverse roof profiles absorb a great deal of the force if the vehicle starts to roll. They all form an interactive web of steel profiles, with the most crucial parts made of high-strength boron steel. In a side collision, the side-impact protection system distributes the crash forces across a large part of the car's body to help minimise the strain on the occupants.

    Image2
    Energy-absorbing frontal structure

    The generous front deformation zones are designed to yield in a controlled way to help absorb crash energy before it reaches the cabin. The transversely mounted and very compact engine enables optimal use of the deformation zones to help protect occupants. Longitudinal steel struts help disperse crash energy away from the front to the rear of the vehicle, further helping to reduce the strain on the occupants.

    Image2
    Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)

    SIPS is a Volvo unique safety system that has been developed to help protect the occupants in the event of a side collision. The steel framework of the vehicle – including the front seats – is designed and reinforced to help displace the impact of a side collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body and help prevent intrusion into the cabin. The side structure is extremely strong to help withstand a severe side impact. The Inflatable Curtain (IC) for all the outboard occupants including the ones in the third row and the front seat side airbags interact to help provide further protection.

    Image2
    Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS)

    To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Volvo’s ROPS is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.

    Image2
    Safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters

    Safety belts are the first line of defence when it comes to help protecting people during a crash. That’s why we introduced them in 1959. We also invented the audible and visual safety belt reminder and today, everybody in the car is reminded to fasten their safety belts before moving off. And in the information display on the instrument panel, you can check that the rear seat passengers have all fastened their safety belts and that nobody unfastens them during the trip. Pre-tensioners activate to tighten the belts within fractions of a second in the event of a collision. The front seat safety belts then release a little so that the driver and passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled fashion.

    Image2
    Dual-stage airbags, driver and front passenger

    In a frontal collision, the driver and passenger airbags help protect your head, face and chest. But because no two collisions are the same, the airbags adapt the level of inflation depending on the force of the impact. To help minimise the impact on the driver, the driver’s airbag also interacts with the deformation of the collapsible steering column. And if the impact is low enough that the airbags aren’t needed, the system will just deploy safety belt pre-tensioners if necessary.

    Image2
    Passenger airbag cut-off switch

    The passenger airbag is designed to help protect an adult in a frontal collision in case of collision. But if a child or a person shorter than 140 centimetres is in the front passenger seat, the airbag must first be disengaged to avoid the risk of serious injury. The airbag cut-off switch is positioned on the passenger end of the dashboard and can only be accessed with the door open. When the airbag is switched off (just use the key), you’re notified by a message on the roof console display.

    Image2
    Side-impact airbags for driver and front passenger

    These help reduce the risk of serious injuries to the chest and hips in a side-impact collision. Inflating in a fraction of a second, they're fitted in the outer edge of the front-seat backrests, ensuring they're always positioned securely by your side. Together with the SIPS system and the Inflatable Curtain (IC), they help provide a unique level of protection.

    Image2
    Inflatable Curtain (IC)

    Inflating in a side-impact or rollover accident to help protect the heads of all outboard occupants including the ones in the third row, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect whether you’re in the front or the rear. It also stays inflated in multiple or longer-duration accidents to help provide extended protection, regardless of whether the windows are up or down.

    Image2
    Collapsible steering column

    The steering column is an advanced part of the safety system, with the upper and lower sections giving way in a controlled manner in a frontal impact to help protect the driver.

    Image2
    Energy-absorbing interior

    All the panels and door sides are padded with energy-absorbing materials to help reduce the risk of injury to the car’s passengers.

    Image2
    Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)

    It’s something that happens every day in every major city in the world – a moment’s inattention and one driver runs into the back of another. And the result can be long-term injury as a result of whiplash. Volvo, as part of its IntelliSafe programme, has developed a system that can help reduce the risk of long-term injury by as much as 50 per cent. During a rear impact, the WHIPS system moves the entire seatback with the passenger or driver – similar to the way you might gently catch a ball – while the head restraint remains rigid to support the neck. A unique Volvo design.

    Image2
    Head restraints

    Positioned to offer optimum protection irrespective of the occupant’s height, the restraints offer drivers and passengers outstanding protection. The rear middle restraint can be fully folded into the backrest to improve the driver’s rearward visibility.

    Image2
    Anti-submarining protection

    To help prevent that passengers slide under and out of their safety belts in the event of a big impact, the seats feature anti-submarining guards which are specially shaped panels angled upwards at the forward edge inside the seats.

    Image2
    Third row safety

    With head restraints, three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners, IC inflatable curtain and a generous rear crumple zone, two passengers up to 160 cm ride as safely and comfortably here as in any other seat. The seat’s position above the rear axle contributes to added side-impact protection and - to help provide added protection if the vehicle rolls over - the roof and the side pillars have extra reinforcement. At the same time, the safety belt pre-tensioners and IC are activated to help protect the heads of the occupants. Children from the age of three to about ten should be seated on a booster cushion and wearing a safety belt.

    Image2
    Protective system for other cars

    Not only is the XC90 built with a monocoque body and the same type of crumple zones found in the rest of the Volvo range, the body structure itself is still at the same height as the bumpers of most other passenger cars - despite its high ground clearance. In a frontal collision or side impact, the additional lower cross-member below the front bumper is designed to activate the other car’s own crumple zones more quickly. This can save vital milliseconds, time that may also save lives.

    Image2
    Protective system for unprotected road-users

    The front structure and bonnet are designed to help reduce the risk of injury to unprotected road-users. The front is gently rounded, the headlamps are integrated flush with the body and the bonnet acts as a crumple zone if a pedestrian is hit, thus helping to reduce the risk of serious injuries.

    Volvo On Call and smartphone app

    Further adding to your convenience and security, the Volvo On Call telematics technology with built-in GPS and GSM connectitivity constantly connects you with your Volvo and a range of personal services. A push of a button instantly puts you in contact with a Volvo On Call operator that can pinpoint your location and send the assistance you need. And just using your smartphone (iPhone or Android), an intelligent application allow you to remotely check the status of your car, monitor the fuel consumption, keep a car journal, locate your car and warm up the engine and cabin (if your car is equipped with a fuel heater). The system can also alert you to an attempted break-in. If the car is stolen, it can be traced via satellite. And in an accident where any of your car’s airbags are deployed, the Volvo On Call operator centre is alerted automatically.

    Image2
    Immobiliser and theft-protected locks

    Not only will the door locks withstand most break-in attempts, the electronic immobiliser makes it impossible to start the car without the right key. And even if a would-be thief manages to get into the car via the window, the deadlock system makes it impossible to open the door from the inside.

  • Seats
    Ergonomically designed seats

    The seats in your Volvo may well be the most important ones in your life – over the lifetime of your car, you will probably spend thousands of hours sitting on them. That’s why we spent so much time developing their ergonomic sculpted design, firm yet comfortable, with supporting side cushions and ergonomic padding. Indeed, our seats are widely accepted as some of the finest in the car world. They have features like stepless lumbar support in the front seats, which allows for the tiniest degrees of adjustment for the best support for each individual. Add in our wide choice of upholstery materials and designs, and you’ll have a seat you’ll never want to leave.

    Image2
    Seven individual seats

    All occupants will appreciate the comfort of a separate ergonomically designed seat. Cinema-style seating helps provide an excellent view, wherever you're seated. The easily adjustable front and second row seats make it easy to find the perfect seating position and maximum comfort. The middle seat also features an integrated booster cushion and can slide forward additionally to put the child in even closer contact with parents in the front seats. You can even remove the tunnel section's rear section to add extra legroom in the rear middle seat. In the third row of seats two passengers of up to 160 cm rides comfortably and are surrounded with comfort-enhancing details such as armrests with built-in cupholders, tables and a practical storage compartment between the seats. This area can also be fitted with its own air conditioning system, including adjustable ventilation vents. Each rear seat is easy to fold individually into the load area floor so you can transport both passengers and cargo without compromising on either comfort or safety.

    Image2
    Fully adjustable front seats

    There’s no such thing as a standard-sized Volvo owner. That’s why we’ve taken such care to design seats that can be manually adjusted to fit a huge range of physiques. You can, for example, change the height and the angle of the seat cushion to suit you perfectly and give full under-thigh support, whatever your shape or size. This great adjustability is also optionally available for the passenger seat. To make sure the small of your back is comfortably supported, the lumbar support can be adjusted on each front seat. And the seats slide back and forth over such a large range that even the tallest or shortest drivers will find their perfect driving position.

    Image2
    Electrically powered seats with remote memory

    You know how frustrating it is to climb behind the wheel, only to find that a partner or colleague has adjusted the seat and door mirrors to suit their particular physique. That’s why you can electrically adjust the driver’s seat and door mirrors to your perfect position and then your Volvo saves the settings. Every time you use your remote control for the central locking, the seat and door mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences (you get two remote controls or Personal Car Communicators with your Volvo and can order up to four more). Each remote control triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Furthermore, you can save up to three different seat and door mirror settings by using the buttons on the seat. And an electrically adjustable passenger seat is also optionally available.

    Image2
    Heated front seats

    Essential for those early morning winter starts, you can set the heating to two positions using buttons on the centre console.

    Cabin filter

    Preventing dust and pollen from entering the cabin via the ventilation system, the cabin filter is a real benefit to driver and passengers, especially those prone to hay fever or other allergies.

    Image2
    Electronic Climate Control (ECC)

    Electronic Climate Control (ECC) maintains the cabin temperature you choose and can be set independently for the driver and front passenger. Further contributing to your health and comfort, the system’s humidity sensor helps ensure cabin air has an appropriate level of humidity in relation to the outside climate.

    Image2
    Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

    Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.

    Image2
    Adjustable rear air vents

    Air vents that are conveniently located in the door pillars at face level create a comfortable environment for rear seat passengers. They also keep ice and mist off the rear side windows, which makes for a safer journey.

    Fuel-driven engine and cabin heater

    A fuel-driven heater will make your car easier to start, warm up the cabin and help reduce the environmental impact – a cold engine produces far more harmful emissions than a warm one, and will increase engine wear. Start the heater directly, or set the time you’d like to enter your warm and defrosted car. With a remote starter you can activate the heater without going out to the car. And if your car is equipped with Volvo On Call, you can start the heater using your smartphone.

  • Driver's support
    Cruise control

    Conveniently operated from the steering wheel, cruise control allows you to drive in a more relaxed way without having to keep your foot on the accelerator. The car maintains the speed you choose until you turn off the cruise control or press the brake, accelerator or clutch. After braking or using the clutch, the car returns to its previous cruising speed at the touch of a button. After accelerating – for instance to overtake – your car automatically reverts to its previous cruising speed once you release the accelerator.

    Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)

    We’ve all experienced that nasty little shock as we’re changing lanes and suddenly realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. BLIS uses rear-facing cameras installed in the door mirrors to keep a lookout on either side of the car. As a vehicle enters your blind spot, this function can alert you with a lamp built into the front door post – left and right. Together with the door mirrors, this helps you assess the feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 10 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. And BLIS maintains its vigil day or night.

    Image2
    Park assist sensors, rear and front

    Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear park assist helps you when reversing into tight spaces. The audio system is turned down and a pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers becomes a continuous tone as you approach an obstacle. Front park assist performs a similar function at the front of the vehicle – alerting you via the front loudspeakers.

This engine is mated to Volvo’s all-wheel drive with Instant Traction™ and a six-speed Geartronic automatic.

    Image2
  • Transmission
    Six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission

    For the best of two worlds, there’s the six-speed Geartronic – a responsive automatic that’s ideal for relaxed driving, tough conditions or towing. This also allows manual gear shifting so you can maintain a lower gear to bring up the revs or for the added assistance of engine braking. A special winter setting make sit easier to move off and maintain a grip on slippery surfaces.

    Image2
    All-wheel Drive (AWD)

    The advanced AWD technology with Instant Traction™ helps increase driving stability and traction on all road surfaces, in all weather conditions. It has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle, engine torque, engine speed and the brakes. As driving conditions change, wheels with the best grip get the most power. When a tyre loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to the more sure-footed wheels.

  • Chassis & Steering
    Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS)

    To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Volvo’s ROPS is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.

    Image2
    Chassis

    The Volvo XC90’s all-road capability is based on generous ground clearance (218 mm), a comparatively low centre of gravity and an advanced chassis. The rigid body enables optimal suspension performance, balanced handling and a high level of comfort. Front and rear suspension interact to provide stable braking and smooth steering. In a curve, the rear wheels have a slight steering facility for added stability and steering response.

    DSTC anti-skid system

    By helping to prevent fishtails, spinouts and rollovers, stability control technology like DSTC has been described as one of the most vital safety advances of the past decade. At the core of DSTC, a gyroscope senses the car’s direction and compares it with steering wheel movements as well as the actual rotation of the car’s wheels. DSTC is able to detect a potential skid and help counteract this by reducing the engine’s power output or braking on one or more wheels.

    Image2
    Roll Stability Control (RSC)

    In the event of an emergency manoeuvre, Volvo’s Roll Stability Control (RSC) can step in to help prevent the vehicle from rolling over. It features a gyroscopic sensor that registers the vehicle’s lean angle and rollover risk. If required, RSC will cut engine power or brake one or more of the wheels just enough to reduce the centrifugal force and help regain balance.

    Cabin filter

    Preventing dust and pollen from entering the cabin via the ventilation system, the cabin filter is a real benefit to driver and passengers, especially those prone to hay fever or other allergies.

    Image2
    Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

    Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.

This means you’ll gain a further 45 metres for braking. Independent of the load, these headlights self-adjust to maintain the correct angle to the road – even during hard acceleration or braking.

    Image2
    Active Bending Lights (ABL)

    In addition to improving illumination by about 230% using Dual Xenon light technology, the Active Bending Lights give a 90% boost to your vision round bends at night. Controlled by microprocessors, the motorised lamps turn up to 15 degrees in either direction when driving – reliably lighting up your chosen path. A twilight sensor disengages the adaptive function during daylight.

    Image2
    LED dayrunning lights

    Automatically activated during daylight, these energy efficient LED lights make your car more conspicuous. And when the dipped headlights are needed for illumination, they are automatically engaged by a twilight sensor. What’s more, the spoiler integrated LED lights also add to the distinct styling of your Volvo.

    Side-marker lamps

    Integrated front and rear side-marker lamps help alert other drivers to your car’s presence.

    Water-repellent front side windows

    To provide far better visibility in the rain, your Volvo’s front side windows help repel water as you drive. The hydrophobic surface treatment turns water into small drops that will be blown away by the force of the wind. This also gives you the benefit of less ice or frost in winter conditions. This option is offered in combination with laminated windows.

  • Protective safety
    Boron steel reinforced passenger compartment

    In an accident, your car's front and rear crumple zones dissipate and distribute the impact around the car, while the roof pillars and transverse roof profiles absorb a great deal of the force if the vehicle starts to roll. They all form an interactive web of steel profiles, with the most crucial parts made of high-strength boron steel. In a side collision, the side-impact protection system distributes the crash forces across a large part of the car's body to help minimise the strain on the occupants.

    Image2
    Energy-absorbing frontal structure

    The generous front deformation zones are designed to yield in a controlled way to help absorb crash energy before it reaches the cabin. The transversely mounted and very compact engine enables optimal use of the deformation zones to help protect occupants. Longitudinal steel struts help disperse crash energy away from the front to the rear of the vehicle, further helping to reduce the strain on the occupants.

    Image2
    Side Impact Protection System (SIPS)

    SIPS is a Volvo unique safety system that has been developed to help protect the occupants in the event of a side collision. The steel framework of the vehicle – including the front seats – is designed and reinforced to help displace the impact of a side collision away from the occupants to other parts of the car body and help prevent intrusion into the cabin. The side structure is extremely strong to help withstand a severe side impact. The Inflatable Curtain (IC) for all the outboard occupants including the ones in the third row and the front seat side airbags interact to help provide further protection.

    Image2
    Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS)

    To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Volvo’s ROPS is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.

    Image2
    Safety belts with pre-tensioners and load limiters

    Safety belts are the first line of defence when it comes to help protecting people during a crash. That’s why we introduced them in 1959. We also invented the audible and visual safety belt reminder and today, everybody in the car is reminded to fasten their safety belts before moving off. And in the information display on the instrument panel, you can check that the rear seat passengers have all fastened their safety belts and that nobody unfastens them during the trip. Pre-tensioners activate to tighten the belts within fractions of a second in the event of a collision. The front seat safety belts then release a little so that the driver and passenger are cushioned by the airbags in a controlled fashion.

    Image2
    Dual-stage airbags, driver and front passenger

    In a frontal collision, the driver and passenger airbags help protect your head, face and chest. But because no two collisions are the same, the airbags adapt the level of inflation depending on the force of the impact. To help minimise the impact on the driver, the driver’s airbag also interacts with the deformation of the collapsible steering column. And if the impact is low enough that the airbags aren’t needed, the system will just deploy safety belt pre-tensioners if necessary.

    Image2
    Passenger airbag cut-off switch

    The passenger airbag is designed to help protect an adult in a frontal collision in case of collision. But if a child or a person shorter than 140 centimetres is in the front passenger seat, the airbag must first be disengaged to avoid the risk of serious injury. The airbag cut-off switch is positioned on the passenger end of the dashboard and can only be accessed with the door open. When the airbag is switched off (just use the key), you’re notified by a message on the roof console display.

    Image2
    Side-impact airbags for driver and front passenger

    These help reduce the risk of serious injuries to the chest and hips in a side-impact collision. Inflating in a fraction of a second, they're fitted in the outer edge of the front-seat backrests, ensuring they're always positioned securely by your side. Together with the SIPS system and the Inflatable Curtain (IC), they help provide a unique level of protection.

    Image2
    Inflatable Curtain (IC)

    Inflating in a side-impact or rollover accident to help protect the heads of all outboard occupants including the ones in the third row, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) helps protect whether you’re in the front or the rear. It also stays inflated in multiple or longer-duration accidents to help provide extended protection, regardless of whether the windows are up or down.

    Image2
    Collapsible steering column

    The steering column is an advanced part of the safety system, with the upper and lower sections giving way in a controlled manner in a frontal impact to help protect the driver.

    Image2
    Energy-absorbing interior

    All the panels and door sides are padded with energy-absorbing materials to help reduce the risk of injury to the car’s passengers.

    Image2
    Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS)

    It’s something that happens every day in every major city in the world – a moment’s inattention and one driver runs into the back of another. And the result can be long-term injury as a result of whiplash. Volvo, as part of its IntelliSafe programme, has developed a system that can help reduce the risk of long-term injury by as much as 50 per cent. During a rear impact, the WHIPS system moves the entire seatback with the passenger or driver – similar to the way you might gently catch a ball – while the head restraint remains rigid to support the neck. A unique Volvo design.

    Image2
    Head restraints

    Positioned to offer optimum protection irrespective of the occupant’s height, the restraints offer drivers and passengers outstanding protection. The rear middle restraint can be fully folded into the backrest to improve the driver’s rearward visibility.

    Image2
    Anti-submarining protection

    To help prevent that passengers slide under and out of their safety belts in the event of a big impact, the seats feature anti-submarining guards which are specially shaped panels angled upwards at the forward edge inside the seats.

    Image2
    Third row safety

    With head restraints, three-point safety belts with pre-tensioners, IC inflatable curtain and a generous rear crumple zone, two passengers up to 160 cm ride as safely and comfortably here as in any other seat. The seat’s position above the rear axle contributes to added side-impact protection and - to help provide added protection if the vehicle rolls over - the roof and the side pillars have extra reinforcement. At the same time, the safety belt pre-tensioners and IC are activated to help protect the heads of the occupants. Children from the age of three to about ten should be seated on a booster cushion and wearing a safety belt.

    Image2
    Protective system for other cars

    Not only is the XC90 built with a monocoque body and the same type of crumple zones found in the rest of the Volvo range, the body structure itself is still at the same height as the bumpers of most other passenger cars - despite its high ground clearance. In a frontal collision or side impact, the additional lower cross-member below the front bumper is designed to activate the other car’s own crumple zones more quickly. This can save vital milliseconds, time that may also save lives.

    Image2
    Protective system for unprotected road-users

    The front structure and bonnet are designed to help reduce the risk of injury to unprotected road-users. The front is gently rounded, the headlamps are integrated flush with the body and the bonnet acts as a crumple zone if a pedestrian is hit, thus helping to reduce the risk of serious injuries.

  • Seats
    Ergonomically designed seats

    The seats in your Volvo may well be the most important ones in your life – over the lifetime of your car, you will probably spend thousands of hours sitting on them. That’s why we spent so much time developing their ergonomic sculpted design, firm yet comfortable, with supporting side cushions and ergonomic padding. Indeed, our seats are widely accepted as some of the finest in the car world. They have features like stepless lumbar support in the front seats, which allows for the tiniest degrees of adjustment for the best support for each individual. Add in our wide choice of upholstery materials and designs, and you’ll have a seat you’ll never want to leave.

    Image2
    Seven individual seats

    All occupants will appreciate the comfort of a separate ergonomically designed seat. Cinema-style seating helps provide an excellent view, wherever you're seated. The easily adjustable front and second row seats make it easy to find the perfect seating position and maximum comfort. The middle seat also features an integrated booster cushion and can slide forward additionally to put the child in even closer contact with parents in the front seats. You can even remove the tunnel section's rear section to add extra legroom in the rear middle seat. In the third row of seats two passengers of up to 160 cm rides comfortably and are surrounded with comfort-enhancing details such as armrests with built-in cupholders, tables and a practical storage compartment between the seats. This area can also be fitted with its own air conditioning system, including adjustable ventilation vents. Each rear seat is easy to fold individually into the load area floor so you can transport both passengers and cargo without compromising on either comfort or safety.

    Image2
    Fully adjustable front seats

    There’s no such thing as a standard-sized Volvo owner. That’s why we’ve taken such care to design seats that can be manually adjusted to fit a huge range of physiques. You can, for example, change the height and the angle of the seat cushion to suit you perfectly and give full under-thigh support, whatever your shape or size. This great adjustability is also optionally available for the passenger seat. To make sure the small of your back is comfortably supported, the lumbar support can be adjusted on each front seat. And the seats slide back and forth over such a large range that even the tallest or shortest drivers will find their perfect driving position.

    Image2
    Electrically powered seats with remote memory

    You know how frustrating it is to climb behind the wheel, only to find that a partner or colleague has adjusted the seat and door mirrors to suit their particular physique. That’s why you can electrically adjust the driver’s seat and door mirrors to your perfect position and then your Volvo saves the settings. Every time you use your remote control for the central locking, the seat and door mirrors will automatically adjust to your preferences (you get two remote controls or Personal Car Communicators with your Volvo and can order up to four more). Each remote control triggers the corresponding setting from the last time that particular remote control was used. Furthermore, you can save up to three different seat and door mirror settings by using the buttons on the seat. And an electrically adjustable passenger seat is also optionally available.

    Image2
    Electronic Climate Control (ECC)

    Electronic Climate Control (ECC) maintains the cabin temperature you choose and can be set independently for the driver and front passenger. Further contributing to your health and comfort, the system’s humidity sensor helps ensure cabin air has an appropriate level of humidity in relation to the outside climate.

    Image2
    Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

    Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.

    Image2
    Adjustable rear air vents

    Air vents that are conveniently located in the door pillars at face level create a comfortable environment for rear seat passengers. They also keep ice and mist off the rear side windows, which makes for a safer journey.

    Blind Spot Information System (BLIS)

    We’ve all experienced that nasty little shock as we’re changing lanes and suddenly realise that there’s another vehicle in our blind spot. BLIS uses rear-facing cameras installed in the door mirrors to keep a lookout on either side of the car. As a vehicle enters your blind spot, this function can alert you with a lamp built into the front door post – left and right. Together with the door mirrors, this helps you assess the feasibility of a lane change. BLIS is activated once the car exceeds 10 km/h and reacts to almost any type of vehicle, including motorcycles. And BLIS maintains its vigil day or night.

    Image2
    Park assist sensors, rear and front

    Activated when you engage reverse gear, rear park assist helps you when reversing into tight spaces. The audio system is turned down and a pulsating sound from the rear loudspeakers becomes a continuous tone as you approach an obstacle. Front park assist performs a similar function at the front of the vehicle – alerting you via the front loudspeakers.

    The power windows have controls conveniently located in the door armrests. The front windows can be lowered or raised with a quick press or pull of a button, and you can lock the back windows from the driver’s seat if you’re travelling with small children. In this case, you’ll also be glad of the automatic anti-clamp protection, which will stop a window from closing on a trapped little hand.

    Image2
    Interior lighting

    An entry light on both the driver and front passenger side lights the foot-well area upon entry into the car. The rear seat reading lamps are recessed and shaded to avoid dazzling the driver, while the seven seater version also features two reading lamps for third-row occupants. The interior light will fade out 25 seconds after the doors have been closed, but will switch off immediately if the ignition is turned on or the doors are locked.

    Image2
    Speed dependant steering

    Speed dependant power steering uses sophisticated, speed-sensitive technology to regulate the amount of power assistance a driver needs. At highway speeds, steering is firmer and more immediate. When parking or in slow traffic, steering is light and effortless.

  • Engines
    Six-cylinder petrol engine (3.2 AWD)

    This state-of-the-art 243 hp in-line six-cylinder petrol engine is designed to elevate your driving experience to new levels of harmony and comfort. Its character is both responsive and relaxed – advanced engine technology, such as the variable geometry intake system, provides high torque in all driving situations and efficient overtaking. Depending on your driving style and the situation, the intake valve train automatically switches between economy and performance modes to optimise efficiency. The balanced nature of this power source also helps reduce fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. Volvo’s All-Wheel Drive with Instant TractionTM and the six-speed Geartronic automatic perfectly complements this sophisticated engine.

    Image2
    Five-cylinder common rail twin-turbodiesel engine (D4)

    High demands on pure efficiency without compromising on comfort? This front wheel drive 2.4-litre direct injection common rail 163 hp five-cylinder twin-turbo diesel with variable turbine geometry may be just for you. Emitting only 212 g CO₂/km, this fuel-efficient power plant will give you access to high torque (max 340 Nm) already from 1750 rpm. The relaxed character and flexibility of this engine will infuse your drive with the composed feeling of being in control in all situations. The six-speed Geartronic automatic perfectly complements this refined engine.

    Image2
    Five-cylinder common rail twin-turbodiesel engine (D5 AWD)

    Dynamically matched to the Volvo XC90, the high-performance all-aluminium 200 hp D5 turbo diesel is a harmonious source of power. Advanced diesel technology, such as common rail direct injection and variable turbine geometry assure quick and comfortable response, excellent fuel economy and cleaner exhaust. Its high torque (max 420 Nm) provides remarkable flexibility in any situation. Low weight further enhances fuel economy and a balanced drive. This engine is mated to Volvo’s all-wheel drive with Instant Traction™ and a six-speed Geartronic automatic.

    Image2
  • Transmission
    Six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission

    For the best of two worlds, there’s the six-speed Geartronic – a responsive automatic that’s ideal for relaxed driving, tough conditions or towing. This also allows manual gear shifting so you can maintain a lower gear to bring up the revs or for the added assistance of engine braking. A special winter setting make sit easier to move off and maintain a grip on slippery surfaces.

    Image2
    All-wheel Drive (AWD)

    The advanced AWD technology with Instant Traction™ helps increase driving stability and traction on all road surfaces, in all weather conditions. It has an electronic management system that constantly monitors the speed of the wheels, the throttle, engine torque, engine speed and the brakes. As driving conditions change, wheels with the best grip get the most power. When a tyre loses traction, power is reduced to that wheel and instantly transferred to the more sure-footed wheels.

    Image2
  • Chassis & Steering
    Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS)

    To help protect passengers in a rollover situation, Volvo’s ROPS is activated by a sensor that monitors the vehicle’s lean angle. In the event of a rollover the safety belt pre-tensioners are activated for every seat to help keep passengers more securely in place. At the same time, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) deploys to help protect against secondary impacts.

    Image2
    Chassis

    The Volvo XC90’s all-road capability is based on generous ground clearance (218 mm), a comparatively low centre of gravity and an advanced chassis. The rigid body enables optimal suspension performance, balanced handling and a high level of comfort. Front and rear suspension interact to provide stable braking and smooth steering. In a curve, the rear wheels have a slight steering facility for added stability and steering response.

    Image2
    R-DESIGN sport-tuned chassis

    Stiffer anti-roll bars help keep the Volvo XC90 R-DESIGN flat through hard turns. Firmer shocks improve body control and amplify road feedback. Only for the Volvo XC90 R-DESIGN.

    Image2
    DSTC anti-skid system

    By helping to prevent fishtails, spinouts and rollovers, stability control technology like DSTC has been described as one of the most vital safety advances of the past decade. At the core of DSTC, a gyroscope senses the car’s direction and compares it with steering wheel movements as well as the actual rotation of the car’s wheels. DSTC is able to detect a potential skid and help counteract this by reducing the engine’s power output or braking on one or more wheels.

    Image2
    Roll Stability Control (RSC)

    In the event of an emergency manoeuvre, Volvo’s Roll Stability Control (RSC) can step in to help prevent the vehicle from rolling over. It features a gyroscopic sensor that registers the vehicle’s lean angle and rollover risk. If required, RSC will cut engine power or brake one or more of the wheels just enough to reduce the centrifugal force and help regain balance.

    Image2
    Automatic levelling

    When you tow or carry a heavy load, automatic levelling adjusts the rear suspension so the vehicle will maintain stability, as well as the correct ground clearance and headlight angle.

    Speed dependant steering

    Speed dependant power steering uses sophisticated, speed-sensitive technology to regulate the amount of power assistance a driver needs. At highway speeds, steering is firmer and more immediate. When parking or in slow traffic, steering is light and effortless.

  • Inside
    Cabin filter

    Preventing dust and pollen from entering the cabin via the ventilation system, the cabin filter is a real benefit to driver and passengers, especially those prone to hay fever or other allergies.

    Image2
    Interior Air Quality System (IAQS)

    Volvo’s IAQS continuously monitors incoming air and will, if necessary, temporarily close external air vents to shut out carbon monoxide, ground-level ozone and nitrogen dioxide. When the air vents are opened, an active carbon filter protects the passengers from other harmful gases and unpleasant odours. This helps to ensure that the air you breathe in the car is clean, often cleaner than that outside when driving in heavy city traffic and tunnels.
