I acquire addicted memories of the Volvo XC90. It was one of the aboriginal cartage I anytime got to analysis for Cars.com, and it went on to acquire our Best of 2016 award. Then, we bought one and proceeded to put 22,000 afar on it over the advance of a year — added than we’ve put on any added acceptable agent we’ve bought, an adumbration of how abundant we admired it.

But that was aback in 2016, and the apple seems to circuit faster these days. Admitting it was aloof a few years ago, the XC90’s chic has apparent an arrival of new products, and Volvo’s three-row SUV was starting to feel a little dated. For 2020, the XC90 gets what Volvo is calling a refresh, which includes a few annual and administration updates. I took a cruise to the boondocks of Banff, in Alberta, Canada, for a aboriginal drive of the adapted XC90 to see if the adulation is still there. (Per our belief policy, Cars.com pays for its own airfare and abode at such automaker-sponsored events.)

There are some exoteric administration changes, including a new biconcave grille, restyled advanced and rear bumpers, new caster designs and some new blush options. Roof rails, 19-inch auto and chip appendage pipes are additionally accepted now. R-Design models add gloss-black accents for the ancillary mirrors, window trim and the roof rails. Aside from the grille, the changes will be adamantine to aces out — the XC90 was absolutely handsome afore and still is, altered to these tweaks.

Inside, the changes are added substantial. A 12.3-inch affectation is now accepted as the driver’s apparatus panel, and the XC90 is now offered in a six-seat agreement with captain’s chairs for the additional row. This breeze accession was consistently a analytical blank for the XC90, which launched a four-seat copy of the SUV afore this. The dark atom admonishing systems adds automated braking as well.

 History

I activated two XC90s: a constituent amalgam T8 Inscription archetypal and a T6 R-Design, the sportier of the two with added advancing administration and a gas powertrain. I was animated I got to drive both of them, because anniversary archetypal appear article altered about the adapted XC90.

The T8 Inscription is the creme de la creme of the XC90 lineup, its best adequate trim akin and its best able (and expensive) powertrain. The T8 combines a adapted adaptation of Volvo’s supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder agent with an electric motor that’s army to the rear axle. Total arrangement achievement acme out at 400 application and 472 pounds-feet of torque, which gives the XC90 affluence of scoot. For 2020, the battery’s accommodation has additionally been continued to 11.6 kilowatt-hours (over the 2019’s 10.4 kwh) afterwards authoritative it any bigger. Volvo attributes the beyond accommodation to a “change in chemistry,” which makes me ambition I could change the allure on my coffer account.

On the road, the T8 accelerates confidently and accouterment rather seamlessly amid gas and electric power. Best of my active was done in the accepted Amalgam drive approach and I didn’t apprehension any awe-inspiring transitions while accelerating. This was accurate of antecedent versions of the T8, as well. It’s not a actual agitative powertrain, alike with those ability numbers; dispatch pours on rather than snaps forward, but it’s added than able to get the XC90 about with ease.

Where the antecedent T8 ran into a lot of agitation was in slowing bottomward rather than going. Accelerating ability acquire been seamless, but braking was annihilation but; awe-inspiring transitions amid the adorning braking arrangement and the automated brakes fabricated endlessly the XC90 T8 calmly a difficult proposition. The braking arrangement has been reworked for 2020 and is still a brake-by-wire system, but Volvo has added a hydraulic pump aback into the system. This is a awe-inspiring alloy of new- and old-school technology, but the basal band is that it works wonderfully. The anchor pedal feels bland base and the XC90 stops predictably and consistently — it was anon adequate to use, which is one of the best things you can say about a braking system.

There were beneath changes to be begin in the T6 versions of the XC90, which has a aftereffect powertrain: a 316-hp, super- and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 295 pounds-feet of torque and comes akin to an eight-speed automated transmission. Abundant like the T8, this agent calmly moves the XC90 around, admitting afterwards a lot of excitement. Volvo ahead appear that a mild-hybrid active activity accretion braking arrangement would be added to T5 and T6 versions of the XC90 for 2020, but this arrangement was not begin on the T6 archetypal I tested, so we’ll acquire to delay a bit best to see how this accession pans out.

The T6 R-Design and the T8 Inscription I activated both came with the alternative adaptive air suspension, which Volvo accepted has commensurable affability in both models alike admitting the R-Design is the sportier of the trims. There was a apparent aberration in ride affection amid the two models, however: The R-Design has beyond auto (22 inches against 21 inches on the Inscription), and it’s about 450 pounds lighter than the amalgam T8, which fabricated the T6 feel choppier, abnormally on amiss roads. A bit added alley babble and babble from the abeyance could be acquainted in the cabin, so if you alive in an breadth area the anchorage charge repair, this is article to watch out for.

The six-seat agreement makes it abundant easier to ascend into the third row due to a ample gap amid the captain’s chairs, but it doesn’t break one of the XC90’s shortcomings: a close third row. Headroom is good, but legroom is boxy to appear by. The XC90 fails the “three Brians” test, area I set the driver’s bench area I would drive and the additional row to a adequate but advanced spot, afresh see if I can fit in the third row. I couldn’t bastard my knees abaft the sliding second-row seat, so it would crave accommodation from the commuter to accomplish the third row adult-sized.

Volvo’s Sensus touchscreen arrangement is additionally starting to feel a bit dated. The accession of processor ability and a bang in RAM in 2019 was a advantage that at atomic helped the arrangement cossack up in a reasonable bulk of time afterwards you about-face the XC90 on. The arrangement was notable at aboriginal for accepting a angular aggressive touchscreen, but the awning isn’t conspicuously beyond than the added systems out there now, and accepting altitude and heated-seat controls active in a submenu charcoal a abstruse choice.

Also dated: a abridgement of device-charging options. There are alone two USB ports to be begin in the absolute vehicle, both up front, which agency that the additional and third rows are larboard afterwards a abode to bung in. An SUV that is advised today would affection added ports, and this is apparently article that Volvo will abode in an XC90 redesign rather than the brace we get now.

Taken comprehensively, the XC90 still impresses. Its autogenous abstracts and administration still actual abundant authority up, the copse trim all has analogous atom and the absorption to detail is grin-inducing. It’s not a absolute vehicle; if you will be application the third row consistently and charge added burden room, afresh added models would serve better. The aforementioned is accurate if you appetite the latest and greatest in technology.

This is affronted a bit by the XC90’s pricing, which is a bit expensive. The T8 Inscription I collection stickered at $86,990 (including $995 in destination charges) and the T6 R-Design came in at $74,735, so it’s not bargain to get an XC90 with the accretion and whistles.

After active the XC90 again, it reminded me of why I fell in adulation with it initially. The style, the adjustable active acquaintance and the able-bodied implemented assurance appearance still accomplish it a standout in this chic — the sum is somehow greater than the parts.

The 2020 XC90 is on auction now.
