Design

The 2016 Volvo XC90 is expected to arrive slicker and smoother when compared to its predecessor. The company decided to leave out an aggressive look, and that is why we won’t be seeing the old wedge-like look. The newcomer boasts wider grille and wider front end which will increase the aggressive yet luxurious stance. The headlights of XC90 are now horizontal and narrow and you will be able to easily notice the difference on road. As for the wheels, we will be offered with 22-inch alloy wheels and all these features generally improve the look of it and can be described as quite handy.

The new engine which powers the 2016 model is maybe small, but it offers great performances. The 2016 Volvo XC90 combines 80-hp e-motor and an outstanding gasoline drivetrain and that is why this vehicle offers almost sport-car level of performance. This hybrid system is capable of generating up to 400 horsepower. Yes, 400 hp. Battery pack can be charged via electric outlet but also in motion or when you use brakes. The electric only range might not be that great, but customers who occasionally go on short trips will significantly reduce their visits to gas stations. Those customers who decide for hybrid version will be offered several modes including: Auto and Pure. What this actually means? If you decide for the Auto mode, in that case the vehicle switches between gas and electrical modes automatically. On the other hand, if you choose the Pure mode in that case the vehicle drives only on electricity, at least until the battery runs out.
