So it has begun…The Great Multi-Purpose Vehicle debate of 2015. Now, that I am part of my own family unit, including a dog, I have been forced to admit that I can no longer drive a standard car. I need more room! I need storage, I need fuel efficiency…the list goes on and on. When my husband told me we should consider buying a “family car” my heart sank. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was handed my license, and I hopped into my second hand jalopy to drive around town with my friends? Once upon a time driving was fun. Now, it is one more chore. But what if…A family car no longer has to mean boring!
Volvo is introducing the all new XC90 T6 AWD. It will cover your entire checklist for a family car and still give you a thrill as you zip off to the playground.
Featuring a 4 cylinder supercharged and turbocharged engine, there is 316 hp to get you where you need to go at 25 mpg highway.
Completely redesigned, the XC90 seats seven! When the third row is collapsed there is 85 cubic feet of space to haul around everything you need for the family. The concept of a family car has had a complete makeover.
Its luxurious interior and state of the art infotainment will make you want to live in it. However, some of the greater features are the Intellisafe options. These life-saving aspects are changing the way we drive and making travel safer.
The founders of Volvo, Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson have built the entire company around safety. In 1927, they stated that “[c]ars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is – and must remain – safety.”
Almost 90 years later, Volvo is still on the cutting edge of safety. New Advancements are constantly changing the way we drive. Volvo is focusing on prevention as well as protection.
The offered packages for the XC90 T6 provide incredible safety options:
- Blind Spot Information System and Cross Traffic Alert
- Park Assist Pilot
- Lane Keeping Aid
- 360 degree surround view camera
While safety is first on the checklist, the T6 also has an attractive interior sure to ease the stress of early morning carpools. Available in three trim levels, you can build your own car at an affordable price with your choice of accessories:
- Heated steering wheel and heated rear seats
- Nappa Leather
- Bowers & Wilkins Premium Sound System
- Grocery Bag Holder
- Integrated Child Seat
- Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels
- And so much more…
Volvo has built their reputation on safety while successfully integrating comfort and beauty at an affordable price. Growing families no longer need to sacrifice lavish details for safety or affordability.
