Minor Changes Bring Major Visibility Improvements For 2005 Volvo XC90


For immediate release


TORONTO (September 1, 2004) – The XC90, referred to as the next-generation SUV, receives some minor changes to improve visibility in the rain and snow.


Two variants are offered for 2005: the XC90 2.5T in 5- and 7-seat configuration and the 7-seat XC90 T6.



Rain-sensing windshield wipers, previously only available as optional equipment, now come standard on all XC90s. Complimenting the system are flat-blade windshield wipers Which are able to provide uniform pressure against the windshield at high speeds. The wipers reduce wind noise and clean the window more efficiently.


Water-repellent coating has been added to the XC90’s side mirrors to enhance visibility. The coating is also available as an option on side windows.



The 2005 Volvo XC90 has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $49,995 for the 2.5T and $61,995 for the T6. The Volvo XC90 is available through the 44 authorized Volvo retailers in major markets across Canada, and is protected by a comprehensive 48-month, 80,000-kilometre overall warranty and the standard Volvo On Call 48-month roadside assistance program.
