New Updates on the 2018 Volvo XC90

Since the Volvo XC90 was all new in 2016, changes with the 2018 Volvo XC90 are mostly limited to small tweaks. Adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are all important features that have now been made standard. There are also three new colors available.


The CX90 features four trim levels: Momentum, R-Design, Inscription, and Excellence. The Momentum comes with a rearview camera, lane departure warning, and an impressive 9-inch touchscreen. The R-Design is a more sport version while the Inscription and Excellence are more luxury-focused. The XC90 is spacious, allowing for plenty of room for passengers. With elegant styling inside and out, the Volvo XC90 is the ultimate form of luxury.

Getting to Know the XC90's History

The Volvo XC90 has already firmly cemented itself as the class leader among premium SUVs, so it may surprise you that this vehicle only arrived in 2003. For 2004, the tires and wheels were upgraded and Volvo expanded the exterior colors, offering Ice White. The formerly available turbocharged 6-cylinder engine was discontinued in 2006. This is also the same year that all-wheel drive and an Ocean Race Edition V8 model arrived. For 2007, the exterior body style was updated with newly standard features that include an input jack for MP3 players and tire pressure monitoring. A Special Edition trim arrived in 2008, as did the newly standard auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The XC90 V8 Sport left the lineup in 2009, and Volvo made some other minor adjustments to the remaining trim levels. For 2010, the third row of seats became standard, rear parking assist was added, and the handling became smoother. Satellite radio and Bluetooth* were added to all XC90 models in 2011. In the following years, there were mild interior and exterior refreshes, including expanded LED lighting.
