Press Releases



Volvo XC90 was by far the biggest news ever from Volvo when it was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in the beginning of 2002. The Volvo XC90 is a relatively compact SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle).


Volvo XC90 is the most flexible car ever built by Volvo. It seats up to seven passengers, all with equal safety, regardless of where in the car they are riding. Volvo XC90 drives like car, but loads like a wagon, thanks to generous inner height and the easily accessible boot with the split folding tailgate, rather like the tailgate of the classic Volvo P220 Amazon Estate from 1962


During the end of 2004 a new engine option was introduced for Volvo XC90. A V8 engine, the first V8 engine produced for a Volvo car. This engine has a displacement of 4.4 L and delivers 315 hp.
