“We are so proud to have the new XC90 recognized by the experts at Consumer Guide,” said Anders Gustafsson, president and CEO, Volvo Car USA. “The XC90 once again is redefining the seven-passenger SUV category, putting as much value on style and design as it does on Volvo’s heritage of safety and practicality.”


Tom Appel, publisher, Consumer Guide, said, “The XC90 offers a spacious, sumptuously trimmed cabin; decent fuel economy from its 4-cylinder engines; and loads of innovative and unconventional features that set it apart from its competition.  When the XC90 was redesigned from the ground up as a 2016 model, it inaugurated a bold new design direction for the Volvo brand and garnered well-deserved rave reviews—and it remains one of the best vehicles in its class.”
