The 2014 Volvo XC90 is feeling its age against rivals

That the 2014 Volvo XC90 has gone 11 years since its debut without a redesign underlines Volvo's success with its original take on a seven-seat upscale SUV. Rivals such as the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60 have since been introduced, caught up, and surpassed the big, comfortable XC90. 2014 is the last year of this generation, though, with an all-new model starting in 2016. That does mean the 2014 XC90 feels dated, with an outdated infotainment system and a notable absence of the latest driver-assist and convenience features—things you'll find elsewhere in the Volvo lineup (and competitors) for 2014.

The XC90 lineup is limited to two models, both powered by a 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine. Even the entry-level 3.2 model has a long list of standard equipment, including alloy wheels, leather upholstery, rear parking sensors, dual-zone climate control, 40/20/20-split folding second-row seats, and a 50/50-split third-row seat. The XC90 doesn't exactly excite on the road. It's perfectly adequate, but opt for the sharper-looking R-Design model because its sportier suspension tightens up the handling without detracting much from ride comfort. This year marks a fond farewell to the first generation of a family favorite SUV.
