Volvo XC90 - The next generation SUV



The Volvo XC90, a genuine SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle), is the first vehicle of its type which takes other road users into account. The Volvo XC90 has been designed to help protect those in lower cars, pedestrians and cyclists.
This consideration has also been extended to the occupants of the Volvo XC90. Its centre of gravity is lower than that of a conventional SUV, which minimises the risk of the vehicle rolling over. If, in spite of everything, the vehicle were to roll over, it has a specially strengthened roof, special sensors to tension the safety belts, and the airbags and Inflatable Curtain would be activated.


The Volvo XC90 can be ordered with up to three rows of seats. The seats in the third row are designed for children. A great deal of work was devoted to making the third row of seats as safe as the others.
All of the passenger seats can be folded down individually, for optimum load space flexibility.
There are a number of innovative techno-logical solutions in the Volvo XC90. The All Wheel Drive system is of the same type as used in the recently-launched Volvo S60 AWD, but adapted to meet the requirements of an SUV. The Volvo XC90 is the most flexible and safest SUV on the market, and it's also a delight to drive.
