Need a premium SUV? They don’t get much better than Volvo’s XC90 V8.
Safety in a nutshell is Volvo all over. Leading at the forefront of safety design for so many years, Volvo allows you, the proud owner, to travel in arguably the safest SUV/passenger vehicle on the planet. Volvo’s exceptional Side Impact Protection System distributes crash forces across the vehicles side body in the event of a large side on crash. This minimises injury to the head, hips and chest to the occupants inside. Volvo’s Roll Stability Control is a brilliant active safety feature that ensures the car is under premium control on any road surface ahead. Of course, the Volvo XC90 V8 comes with Four Wheel Drive and so slippery, rough and uneven surfaces can be tackled in top confidence by the driver. Your Volvo XC90 V8 is working for you to keep you and your family as safe as possible.
The face lifted Volvo XC90 V8 is a sweet looker. In my book, this is the best looking SUV on the market. The massive five-spoke alloys, high muscly stance, curves in all the right places, side rails, tall taillights, aggressive front end styling that boasts sparkling Xenon headlights and Volvo’s unmistakable logo gives the SUV Volvo an intimidating presence.
Inside, this is also the nicest SUV interior around as well. Leather all round, beautiful, quiet and remarkably roomy – the Volvo XC90 V8 is outstanding. Whether you like off black or sandstone beige, you will definitely be seated in sheer elegance and sophistication. The classy wood grain finish married with touches of aluminium finished trim creates quite a statement. Beautiful blue-kissed circular dials in the instrument display are clear to read and elegant. The Volvo XC90 range has a beauty in simplicity and function that no other SUV can match at present. I think it’s the joining of warm, modern sophistication, sensuality and glamour that gives the Volvo its very own appeal.
Firmly press the accelerator, and the V8 murmur can be heard in a distinguished way. The thrust is exciting, and genuine seven second times are all it takes for the Volvo XC90 V8 to get from standstill to 100 km/h. This is no surprise when you take a glance at the V8’s serious street credentials. The V8 has 232 kW of power on tap and a superior 440 Nm of twist. This sort of power would do very nicely in a Volvo truck! The addition of the V8 power-plant to the range has given Volvo great performance potential and a gorgeous sound.
Drive the best. Drive Volvo.
