This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Volvo XC90 offers classic Volvo attributes in a midsize SUV. It's safe, comfortable, and practical. The XC90 can seat up to seven people with optional third row seats. Rear and front passenger seats fold down to provide more cargo room. The 235-hp 3.2-liter inline-six is available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The 311-hp 4.4-liter V8 engine is available with all-wheel drive. Both engines are matched with a Geartronic six-speed automatic transmission, allowing driver selectable shifting. When equipped for towing it can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Safety features include electronic stability control, side-impact and side curtain airbags, Roll Stability Control, Blind Spot Information System, and all-disc anti-lock brakes with electronic brake-force distribution. Each model is available as a base or R-Design trim. The 2009 XC90 is a carryover from 2008.
