XC90

For 2006, Volvo's S80-based crossover sport-utility vehicle receives a newly upgraded Haldex "Instant Traction" all-wheel drive system. A V-8 model was added at mid-year 2005 that comes with a 311-horsepower 4.4-liter V-8 engine and a six-speed Geartronic automatic transmission that allows manual gear selection. Meanwhile, the base 2.5T model offers a 208-horsepower, five-cylinder and a five-speed Geartronic automatic. The former T6 model and its six-cylinder powerplant are dropped from the line for 2006. The XC90 can seat up to seven passengers via an optional hideaway third row seat. What's more, the second-row seat can be adjusted fore and aft to maximize either cargo space or passenger room. Front-side and side-curtain airbags, anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Distribution and Brake Assist, Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, roll-stability control and a rollover protection system are all on board for safety's sake. A long list of available options includes a wood-trimmed steering wheel, rear parking assist warnings, an integrated child booster seat, a navigation system, self-leveling rear suspension, rain-sensing wipers, and heated seats.
