Peter Mertens, senior vice president research and development at the Volvo Car Corporation, said: “The XC90 still boasts all the virtues that have made it one of our most successful models ever. The spacious and flexible crossover combines excellent handling and comfort with superior get-you-there ability and flexibility.

“Now we have upgraded the XC90 with a number of features that emphasise the large SUV’s unique blend of sophisticated elegance and capable ruggedness.”

The XC90 is designed to give an elegant, muscular and robust impression. This has been reinforced through a number of refined details.

New Day Running Lights give the front more character. The redesigned silver metallic bumper bar as well as silver roof rails are standard on all variants. There is a new lower door moulding and all XC90 versions are fully colour-coordinated.

The new tail lamps have dual light guides, LED brake lights and a silver turn indicator bulb (still with orange light). The new features also include six-spoke 18-inch wheels in silver matt finish.

A number of refinements have been made to give the XC90 interior an even more luxurious aura, including the three-spoke steering wheel, aluminium décor as standard and the watch dial-inspired instrument design with white lighting.

The tailgate is divided into an upper and a lower section. It now comes with a new, colour-coordinated leather grab handle. The load cover has also been redesigned.

The seating position gives the driver an in-command feeling. Seven seats are standard on most markets. All the passenger seats can be folded to create a fully flat loading floor.

Combined fuel consumption 34.0mpg – urban 25.7mpg and extra urban 41.5mpg, CO2 figure 219 g/km. Prices start from £35,175
