Cruising In The All New 2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design

Last week I had the opportunity to drive the all new 2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design.  It was quite a change for me, because normally I drive a mommy mobile – you know, a 7-passenger SUV.  However, the 2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design is by far superior.  It is perfect for all occasions, especially if you live in the suburbs, but also enjoy the outdoors.

2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design Exterior Features

First, the sporty design makes you feel like you never want to stop driving it.  I even took a few extra loops around the neighborhood so I could drive it more.  My kids felt the same way.  They thought it was ‘cool’ to be sporting around in the Boastful Blue colored vehicle.  Even a 16-year-old teenage boy whistled at us as we drove around town!

Next, the 2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design comes with a super-efficient engine, all four wheel drive and an 8 speed automatic transmission.  Let’s not leave out the fact that the engine itself a 2.0 liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.  They even designed a plug-in hybrid version for those that are more environmentally conscious.

Depending upon where you driving, you can easily shift between the Eco, Comfort and Dynamic modes, by pushing a button on the car’s touchscreen feature.  You can also change the driving mode by pushing a button on the middle console.  Beware though, the car is super fast!  You can go from 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 132 mph.

2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design Sound System

The Volvo XC90’s Bowers & Wilkins 10-speaker sound system is also something you don’t want to miss out on.  The system includes a 9” color touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, Sirius satellite radio w/6-month subscription and auxiliary audio and USB inputs.  The USB input is definitely a win, win for my family who loves to keep their tech gadgets charged.

2016 Volvo XC90 T6 R-Design Interior Features

The inside of the Volvo XC90 is just as superb!  From the front bucket seats to the 6-way driver seat, there is so much to offer.  I probably sat there a good five minutes basking in the glory of the leather steering wheel, push button start, voice activation navigation system, real time traffic and weather updates and a 360 degree view camera.

There are so many high quality features on this vehicle, I wasn’t sure when the features would end (not that I wanted them to).  Here are some more “inside” features I enjoyed:

  • Cargo Space Lights
  • Roll-Up Cargo Cover
  • Interior Lighting that Fades Off
  • Full Floor Console
  • Visor Vanity Mirrors
  • Front and Rear Map Lights
  • Remote Keyless Entry w/Integrated Key Transmitter
  • FOB Controls -inc: Trunk/Hatch/Tailgate
  • Voice Activated Dual Zone Front Automatic Air Conditioning
  • Air Filtration System
  • Power Door Locks w/Autolock Feature
  • Driver Foot Rest
  • Electric Power-Assist Speed-Sensing Steering
  • ….the List goes on and on!

Plenty of Room for My Clan & Yours!

The Volvo 2016 XC90 R-Design is also quite spacious.  Not only does it have cramp-free second row seating, but also a third row that you can put down to create more space for your groceries or a large bag of dog food.

Overall, the 2016 Volvo XC90 R-Design is a lot like a good marriage!  If you nurture it and take care of it, it will take care of you.  Listing price for the all new Volvo 2016 XC90 R-Design starts at $43,950.

Happy Driving!
