An expression of style and power

If you're looking for a stylish three-row car with powertrain options and high-class features, the 2022 Volvo XC90 is a luxury SUV you won't want to miss out on. As the only Volvo in the lineup offering a standard seven-passenger seating configuration, the XC90 is perfect for families that crave the finer things in life when shuttling kids to activities, enjoying road trips, and seeking weekend adventures.

You and your passengers will appreciate the luxe interior with sophisticated features and an elegant design, including premium leatherette upholstery, a panoramic moonroof, and power-adjustable front seats. The 2022 Volvo XC90's wide, boxy silhouette also translates to a voluminous cabin with room for passengers to spread out and lots of space for cargo in the back.

A plug-in hybrid powertrain with two electric motors is also available, dishing up a nice mix of perky acceleration with 400 combined hp and fewer stops at the pump. All this is matched with many advanced technologies, including a sleek, tablet-like nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system, built-in navigation, and a long list of standard driver aids to bolster your behind-the-wheel confidence.

5 reasons to buy the 2022 Volvo XC90

1. Turbo and supercharged engine options

The 2022 Volvo XC90 features two gasoline powertrain options that offer plenty of zip for satisfying performance. The base T5 features a 250-hp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine with FWD (AWD is optional) that flies from zero to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). For an added boost of power, the T6 adds a 316-hp turbocharged and supercharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine to Momentum and Inscription trims, which covers zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new), making it very quick off the line for a luxury SUV. Both gasoline powertrains pair with an eight-speed automatic transmission delivering smooth shifting performance, while the suspension soaks up road imperfections for a comfortable ride.

2. Plug-in hybrid powertrain

If you're looking for a luxury SUV that delivers excellent fuel economy, consider the 2022 Volvo XC90 hybrid. This model, known as the Volvo XC90 Recharge, pairs a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine with two electric motors and a charging port to achieve 400 hp of combined system power. The plug-in hybrid powertrain is ideal for commuting or family road trips, with an EPA-estimated 66 combined MPGe (electric)/26 combined MPG (gas).

 The 2022 XC90 Recharge also has an EPA-estimated range of 36 miles on a full charge (electric only), and an EPA-estimated range of 530 miles with a full charge and full tank of gas, helping you go farther on less.

3. Classy cabin

The 2022 Volvo XC90 has an indulgent interior with sophisticated features and an elegant design. Supple leatherette upholstery and a panoramic moonroof come standard, while the premium R-Design trim sports suede upholstery and chic black interior accents. Standard four-zone automatic climate control ensures passenger comfort in any season, and the power-adjustable front seats make it easy to customize the XC90's ergonomics. Opting for Inscription and higher trims provides even more premium standard equipment, including ventilated front seats with extended thigh support. The 2022 Volvo XC90's interior is also calm and quiet at highway speeds, with minimal road noise infiltrating the cabin.

4. Premium connectivity

If you're shopping for a luxury SUV to help you stay connected on your commute, the 2022 Volvo XC90 offers an impressive array of standard tech features. Anchoring the dash is a sleek, tablet-like nine-inch touchscreen infotainment system providing seamless smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto capability. A built-in navigation system also comes standard to help you plan your route, while wireless device charging and two USB ports keep your electronics juiced up. A 10-speaker audio system fills the cabin with concert-like sound, but you can shop for a model with the 14-speaker Harman Kardon® system for a more immersive experience.

5. Advanced driver aids

Whether running errands around town, driving kids to practice or embarking on a road trip, the 2022 Volvo XC90's driver aids will leave you feeling in command. All 2022 models come standard with forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, which detects potential collisions with vehicles up ahead and automatically engages the braking system if you're slow to react. Standard blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert also has your back when making lane changes or reversing by notifying you of obstacles in your path. Other standard driver aids on the 2022 XC90 include lane-departure warning, a rearview monitor, front and rear parking sensors, and adaptive headlights with automatic high beams for visibility.

Interior details

The 2022 Volvo XC90 features a standard seven-passenger layout with the inclusion of a third row. A six-passenger configuration is also available, which removes the middle second-row seat. Leatherette upholstery, four-zone automatic climate control, and power-adjustable front seats are standard, while Inscription and higher trims add ventilated front seats with extended thigh support. The premium R-Design trim also boasts suede upholstery and black interior accents, and all 2022 XC90 models come equipped with a panoramic moonroof. In addition, cargo capacity is generous, with 15.8 cu-ft behind the third row, 41.8 cu-ft with the third row folded, and 85.7 cu-ft with all rows folded.

Child seat details

The 2022 Volvo XC90 seven-seat configuration can fit three car seats in the second row with two full sets of LATCH lower anchors and three tether anchors. This includes LATCH car seats, infant car seats, rear-facing convertible car seats, forward-facing convertible car seats, and booster car seats. The third row of the seven-seat 2022 Volvo XC90 does not have LATCH or tether anchors, making it better suited for children in backless booster seats. Six-seat versions of the 2022 XC90, on the other hand, have one tether anchor in the third row.

Performance

The 2022 Volvo XC90 offers three versions (T5, T6, and T8), and all powertrain options include an eight-speed automatic transmission. The base 2022 XC90 T5 uses a 250-hp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine with standard FWD (AWD is optional) and can cover zero to 60 mph in an estimated 7.5 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). 

Stepping up to the T6 includes standard AWD and a 316-hp turbocharged and supercharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine that can fly from zero to 60 mph in approximately 6.1 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). A Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid (known as the T8 Recharge) is available for the 2022 model year and pairs the turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine with two electric motors. Fuel economy with the 2022 Volvo XC90 plug-in hybrid is impressive, achieving an EPA-estimated 66 combined MPGe (electric)/26 combined MPG (gas).

 Regardless of the powertrain, all 2022 XC90 SUVs can tow an estimated 5,000 lbs., when properly equipped.
