Once you’ve spent time driving a Volvo XC90, it may strike you as unfortunate that the acronym “SUV” stands for Sport Utility Vehicle. Not that there’s anything wrong with the term, but “Sport” and “Utility” — while accurate — aren’t really sufficient to describe the XC90 experience. For those of us at Volvo Cars Walnut Creek, we like to think that “SUV” stands for “Sophisticated Understated Volvo” when describing the XC90. That’s because the 2022 Volvo XC90 is the brand’s most luxurious, spacious, and stylish SUV.



As described by Forbes Magazine, “One area where the XC90 excels is within the vehicle – accommodations are first-rate. Volvo’s front seats are some of the best in the business, and the seats in the second row are nearly as comfortable. Both rows of passengers will find outward vision excellent and plenty of room for shoulders and knees. The third row boasts class-leading legroom.”

To us, that sounds several notches above “Utility”. And when you look around the interior of the XC90 and note the plush leather seating, genuine wood trim, and beautifully polished metals, you will more likely think “Luxury”.

Let’s Consider “Sport” and “Utility”

Thus far we’ve focused on the Volvo XC90’s sophisticated styling and understated luxury. Now we should address the fundamentals of why people choose to drive an SUV.

First, we should say that the Volvo XC90 does not assume that you will be fording rivers or outrunning lions. (Although we suspect that the XC90 would perform quite admirably in either of those highly unlikely scenarios). Instead, it assumes that you live in a metropolitan area, such as the San Francisco Bay Area, and you enjoying traveling to destinations throughout Northern California, including Napa, Mendocino, Carmel, Big Sur, Yosemite, and Lake Tahoe. Especially Lake Tahoe. This is why the Volvo XC90 puts a high value on spaciousness, comfort, and refinement, because you most likely want to arrive at your destination feeling relaxed.

The 2022 Volvo XC90 will comfortably seat seven, has cargo capacity of 85.7 cu. ft., a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs., and boasts an impressive EPA estimated 30 MPG Highway. Or, step up to the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge Plug-In Hybrid and enjoy and EPA estimated 58 MPGe.

Additionally, the XC90 rewards its passengers with such amenities as an air purifier, head-up display, Google built-in, 360-degree camera, and driver assistance technology. Without needing to go further down the list of specifications and features, the 2022 Volvo XC90 certainly checks the “Sport” and “Utility” boxes.

A Safe Investment

While you might think we’re talking about a Volvo’s excellent resale value, we’re actually referencing Volvo’s reputation for safety. For decades, safety is for what the brand has best been known. So it is no surprise that the XC90 is an IIHS “Top Safety Pick+”.
