For those keeping tabs on common comforts and conveniences, there isn't much missing from the XC90. Leather upholstery is standard on all models, as is keyless entry, cruise control, and dual-zone climate control. R-Design models (not available with the V-8) add a host of exterior and interior styling cues, including 19-inch Vulcanis diamond-cut alloy wheels, an R-Design grille, leather seating surfaces with embossed R-Design logos, a sports steering wheel, watch dial instruments, and custom floor mats.
Otherwise, there are plenty of opportunities to add impressive tech features to the XC90. In addition to a Luxury Package that can bring heated front and rear seats, massage and ventilated front seats, upgraded leather, and other appearance upgrades, there's a Multimedia Package that brings a premium audio system, DVD-driven navigation with real-time traffic, and a rear park-assist camera. Other standout features include Volvo's Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), bi-xenon headlamps with Active Bending Light, and a dual-screen DVD system.
