Model Highlights

For 2012, the Volvo XC90 is available in base, Premier Plus, Platinum and R-Design trim levels.

For 2012, the XC90 lost the 4.4L V8 available last year, so now all models are powered by the same 3.2L inline-6-cylinder engine that makes 240 horsepower and 236 lb-feet of torque. The only transmission available is a 6-speed Geartronic automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard on the 3.2, while all-wheel drive with Instant Traction is optional.

Even the base trim comes with dozens of standard features that include a power moonroof, rear fog lamps, heated mirrors that include integrated turn signals, tilt/telescoping steering wheel with cruise and audio controls, a 70/30 split tailgate, an 8-speaker stereo that features SIRIUS satellite radio and HD radio, 3 rows of leather-trimmed seats, remote keyless entry and 3-zone climate control.

Standard safety features include anti-lock brakes with emergency brake assistance, stability and traction control, roll stability control, tire pressure monitoring and a host of airbags.

The new lineup for 2012 includes the impressive standard equipment list, but also add features depending on trim level.

The Premier Plus trim adds active bi-xenon HID headlamps, wood trim, HomeLink universal garage door opener and a compass.

The Platinum adds navigation, a premium sound system and rearview camera. Options include a blind-spot warning system, rear-seat entertainment DVD player and heated front seats.

The R-Design upgrades the wheels to a 20-inch size for 2012, but also comes with specially tuned sport suspension, skid plates, a bumper bar, unique leather seat trim, chronometer-style instrumentation and aluminum interior trim.

Options across the lineup include a blind-spot warning system, rear-seat entertainment DVD player and heated front seats.


Model News

For 2012, the Volvo XC90 loses its V8 engine option and reconfigured all of the trim levels. The lineup now includes Premier Plus and Platinum models in addition to the performance-oriented R-Design.

The base XC90 loses its optional navigation. It is now standard on the Platinum trim.


Value Writeup

The Volvo XC90 occupies a spot in a competitive luxury SUV class that includes the Acura MDX, BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz M-Class. Amid the segment, the XC90 offers loads of standard comfort and safety features. At $38,400, the XC90 is priced lower than most of the competition and Volvo's 10-year/100,000-mile rust warranty is impressive.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
