Even though the 5-passenger XC90 is the first SUV from Volvo, it has been extremely popular in a very crowded field. Volvo's well-deserved reputation for safety is probably partly responsible the XC90's appeal. The standard 235-bhp I-6 can be replaced with a new 311-bhp 4.4L V-8 for better performance. A 6-speed Geartronic(R) automatic transmission is standard across the range. All XC90 V-8 models have standard AWD for better handling and traction (AWD is optional on the XC90 3.2). Self-leveling suspension (Nivomat(R)) can help balance heavy cargo loads. Other options include: Dynamic Stability and Traction Control (DSTC), Roll Stability Control (RSC), Bi-Xenon headlights, and DVD navigation system.
A new R-Design package is offered for 2009. The package includes a satin matte-finish grille with matching side mirrors, lower side moldings, a rear spoiler, and five-spoke wheels. The interior features a unique instrument package, unique seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel. The V8 R-Design replaces the V8 Sport model.
