Volvo XC90 details:
5-door SUV - a crossover model that features the passenger car's convenience and convenience with impressive get-you-there ability and flexibility. The Volvo XC90 is developed to give a reliable yet at the same time compact and elegant impression. It is built as a passenger vehicle, with a unitary body and the same type of chassis as that found in Volvo's sedan models - unlike some other SUV models that are built on a truck chassis. The Volvo XC90 comes with five or seven seatings, depending on specification. The passenger compartment is very roomy, thanks not least to Volvo's modern powertrain concept with transverse motor installation.
The seating is placed high to give the driver a commanding view over the traffic and the passengers a convenient seats position. All the passenger seatings can be folded. The tailgate is divided into an upper and a lower section. This makes the Volvo XC90 a very customizable and versatile vehicle. The top model in the range is the exclusive Volvo XC90 Executive, which features equipment and convenience of exceptional class.
Preventive security is closely linked to the car's driving features. The body of the Volvo XC90 features immense torsional rigidity and the vehicle has a sturdy chassis, a mix that results in consistent, predictable behaviour on the road (see also under Powertrain and Chassis). Ground clearance is high to provide good get-you-there ability on poor roads. Despite this, the floor is set low down, which contributes to the car's low centre of gravity and impressive directional stability.
