The 2016 Volvo XC90 has not yet been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The main rivals of the Volvo are BMW X5, Acura MDX and the Infiniti QX60. People looking out for the Volvo should also check out the Acura MDX which has earned highest 2015 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The single powertrain present in the Volvo XC90 has a 2.0-liter Drive-E four-cylinder engine plus eight-speed automatic transmission coming at a standard all-wheel drive and it churns out fuel consumption rating of 22mpg, which considers the 20mpg on the city and 25mpg on the highway.
These figures are great for a big, heavy seven-seat SUV, compared to Buick Enclave and Lexus LX570 which provides 14 to 18mpg combined. The XC90 is quite fuel-efficient at high speeds thanks to the great attention to aerodynamics and the higher gears of the eight-speed automatic transmission. Travelling around town, the complete physics of stopping and starting a large seven-seat utility vehicle comes into action.
The infotainment system on the Volvo XC90 is packed with incredible functions and they include features like distance alert, parking assistance, road sign information and other information like seating position adjustment.
