Research: 2022 Volvo XC90 SUV

2022 Volvo XC90: Three-row Luxury SUV 

The 2022 Volvo XC90 offers everything discerning drivers seek in a luxury family-mover, including spacious and upscale accommodations, practical versatility, and a wealth of premium amenities. It also provides an enjoyable driving experience with refined ride quality and potent powertrain options, including a plug-in hybrid with pure-electric capability. And with the signature sophistication of Volvo's Scandinavian design and craftsmanship, the Volvo XC90 stands tall as one of the most appealing models in the midsize luxury crossover segment.


The 2022 XC90 delivers a luxurious ride, with well-behaved handling, a smooth and precise 8-speed automatic transmission, and supple suspension that expertly absorbs road bumps and imperfections. Under the hood, the base T5 turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine turns the front wheels with 250 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive is also available to provide improved inclement-weather control for your Springfield or Chantilly, VA, commute.

If you're looking for more internal motivation, the XC90's available twincharged T6 AWD powertrain adds a supercharger to the mix, boosting total output to 316 hp and 295 lb-ft.

2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge

Performance and efficiency don't have to be mutually exclusive. The XC90 Recharge demonstrates this by pairing the AWD twincharged powertrain with an electric motor, producing a prodigious combined output of 400 hp and 472 lb-ft. The 11.6-kWh battery back enables an EPA-estimated 18 miles of electric-only range, and charges in ~6-8 hours using a standard 120V household power outlet. With Level 2 (240V) equipment, the charge time is reduced to ~3 hours.

Accommodations and Versatility

The 2022 Volvo XC90 delivers a first-class experience for driver and passenger, exhibiting Volvo's signature blend of premium luxury and Swedish minimalism. The roomy and refined cabin is adorned in beautiful design details and high-quality materials, while the well-cushioned and ergonomic seats offer superior long-distance comfort. Standard experience-enhancing amenities include four-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable heated front seats, a hands-free tailgate, and a panoramic sunroof.

The cabin provides spacious seating for seven (six with available second-row captain's chairs), with 16 cubic feet to spare for your groceries or luggage. When you need to prioritize cargo space, you can fold the third row easily for 42 cubic feet and the second row for up to 86 cubic feet.

Technology and Safety

The XC90's 9" vertically oriented touchscreen provides easy menu navigation and better viewing at a glance. It also seamlessly integrates infotainment features and cabin controls, maintaining the clean aesthetic without compromising accessibility. With Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, you'll have intuitive access to useful smartphone apps and features like hands-free communications, maps and directions, streaming media and more. And the standard 12.3" digital instrument cluster is customizable to your view preference, allowing you to view route navigation, infotainment details, driver aid status, and more while maintaining focus on the road.
