Frequently Asked Questions About the 2020 Volvo XC90

Luxurious, capable, and refined, the Volvo XC90 combines the elegance of an executive car with the versatile accommodations of an SUV. As Volvo's flagship model, the XC90 is a prime example of the automaker's signature Scandinavian design and craftsmanship. It's an excellent option for discerning Melbourne and Palm Bay families who need the utility and seating of a crossover but still want to enjoy an upscale Volvo experience.

What's new for the 2020 Volvo XC90?

The 2020 Volvo XC90 continues the model's second generation, which launched in 2016. The new model year brings slight aesthetic refreshments, an improved suspension, and an increase in all-electric range for the plug-in hybrid. T6 and T8 Momentum and Inscription models now offer second-row captain's chairs, reducing seating to six while increasing comfort and accessibility.

What are the Volvo XC90 engine options?

Volvo offers the XC90 in three primary variants based on their engine. All models are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

  • T5: The T5 engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that generates 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard. All-wheel drive is optional and comes with heated front seats.

  • T6: The T6 engine adds a supercharger to the T5's turbocharger. The Twincharger output increases to 316 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. T6 models add all-wheel drive, navigation, and leather upholstery to the standard equipment list.

  • T8 eAWD Plug-in Hybrid: The T8 variant adds an electric motor and battery pack to the T6's Twincharger engine. Total system output reaches 400 horsepower and 472 pound-feet of torque. T8 models come standard with all-wheel drive and add an upgraded 11-speaker audio system to the standard features list.
