Expert Quotes:

If the alarm is set off, the S80 activates its "heartbeat" sensor that Volvo claims is sensitive enough to detect the beating of a human heart.
Car and Driver

Climate control adjustments that tailor heating and cooling better than most rivals'.

the audio controls are not intuitive, nor are those for the available navigation system, which is handicapped by a screen that powers up from the dashtop and washes out in bright light
Consumer Guide



In recent years, Volvo has worked to add more features to their vehicles without significantly raising prices. Such is the case with the XC90 as well; it's a better value compared to other models in its class, and for 2011 it gets a few more features. A Bluetooth hands-free interface, Sirius Satellite Radio, and new watch-dial instrumentation are newly standard.

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.

Conclusion

If you're willing to spend quite a bit extra, the 2011 Volvo XC90 comes with enough to keep the family safe, comfortable, and entertained.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
