The brand new Volvo XC90 is the top of the line in luxury, safety, and convenience. Both individuals and families will love cruising around in the luxurious leather while enjoying the modern conveniences of touch screen navigation and music, blind spot safety, and more. And if that’s not enough, open the panoramic sunroof for a more spectacular ride, and view.
I always say that it’s best to have a car at Walt Disney World, and during our most recent trip we drove the brand new 2017 XC90 Inscription. And I fell in love with it, my whole family did really. I’ve never actually driven a Volvo before but have driven a good amount of other cars in the past few years, and the new Volvo XC90 was hands down my favorite.
7 Reasons to Love the New Volvo XC90
1 – The Navigation System in the New Volvo XC90
We didn’t use the navigation system too much, mostly just from the airport Disney World, but when we did use it, it was fantastic. It’s touch screen on your main dashboard and not only was it simple to use, the directions showed up in three different places, so as the driver, I always knew where to go. My favorite was that it was shown both right next to my speed gauge and only right on the window above my steering wheel; I never had to take my eyes off the road to figure out where I was going.
2 – The panoramic sunroof on the New Volvo XC90
Many cars these days have panoramic sunroofs where the sunroof takes up the full space from the front seats all the way to the back seats, giving you an uninterrupted view of sky above. Or in our case, the fireworks above. What makes the XC90 special is the added features of the sunroof like the panoramic shade that you can add to the sunroof so you can still get the impact of the sunroof without all the heat., perfect for the hot Florida sun.
3 – The third row of seats in the New Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 offers seats in a folding third row, making the SUV seat up to seven passengers. Unlike many third rows, the seats are actually pretty roomy and can fit most passengers, not just smaller kids and adults. When the third row is not in use, simply fold it up and use it for storage instead. When we upgrade our current car or have more kids and need more seats, the Volvo XC90 with its spacious third row will definitely be on our list.
4 – Cargo space in the New Volvo XC90
I mentioned above that you can fold down the third row of seats for added cargo space in the back of the car. But unless you are transferring furniture or packing for a major vacation, you probably won’t need it. We packed a stroller, two full size suitcases, and two smaller suitcases into the back with no problem. Compared to other smaller SUVs that I’ve driven, the Volvo XC90 had more space than any of the others. And with the third row folded down, I almost wished I’d packed more to take advantage of the 85.7 cu. ft of cargo space.
5 – Safety Features in the New Volvo XC90
The XC90 is loaded with incredible safety features. Collision mitigation support that helps avoid collisions (which we luckily didn’t have to use!), blind spot monitors telling you when someone is in your blind spot, and even lane keeping helpers that gently nudge you back into your own lane if you start to cross over. It’s never been safer to drive.
It’s not only safer to drive, it’s safer to drive in as well. The new Volvo XC90 is part of Volvo’s CleanZone program, which means all of the materials in the interior are hypoallergenic and the vents close when necessary to filter dust and pollen. You can drive safe and breathe easy.
6 – The little details in the New Volvo XC90
The Volvo XC90 has so many little details I didn’t even know I cared about until they were there. A rearview mirror that swivels to actually face the driver, stoppers on the cup holder so your cup holder doesn’t go flying when you slam on the brakes, pull-up shades for the passenger windows, and the ability to turn your car into a WiFi hotspot for the family. The list goes on and on and rather than list them all out here, you’ll have to drive it for yourself or read them all here.
7 – Riding in luxurious style in the New Volvo XC90
Volvo is synonymous with luxury and the new Volvo XC90 just felt like pure luxury. From the comfortable leather seats to the touch screen navigation and music, everything was just a step above other cars I’ve driven. Even the lights along the doors that lit up at night (my son’s favorite part!) made driving this car feel like flying first class.
Next time, I hope to get the chance to drive the new Volvo XC90 around more than just around Walt Disney World, although I do think my Dooney & Burke purse fits the luxurious leather nicely.
