For 2013, the XC90 receives its first major update since its launch in 2002. The 2-tone look of previous XC90's is now a thing of the past-- Volvo instead went with a more monochromatic theme for 2013. The front fascia is updated with the addition of new daytime running lights while new 18-inch alloy wheels round out the more noticeable exterior changes. Inside, there's a new leather wrapped steering wheel, walnut overlays and improved interior lighting. The R-Design has also been updated with new 19-inch wheels and a black mesh grill.
Refined luxury; room for 7; world-renowned safety; updated, modern exterior
The Volvo XC90 starts at $39,500, significantly undercutting the price of other SUVs like BMW's X5 and the Mercedes-Benz M-Class. The Volvo has plenty of standard features to set it apart from the competition and crucially, is available in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, making it a good choice for people who don't necessarily need lots of off road ability or goodies. Capable of seating seven people, the XC90 is a vehicle for people who want lots of standard amenities and plenty of luxury at a price that BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz can't touch.
