The XC90 gets a very mild mid-lifecycle refresh for 2020. This consists mainly of slight tweaks to the grille design and bumpers along with new wheel designs and new color options. Inside is more of the same, with a few new interior trim options, the highlight of which is a new wool blend option available on top-of-the-line Inscription models. The 8-in digital gauge cluster display previously found on the base Momentum trim is replaced by the 12.3-in display found elsewhere throughout the lineup. Momentum and Inscription trims are now available with second-row captain's chairs, giving the XC90 an available 6-passenger configuration. The XC90's extremely rare limousine-spec "Excellence" trim goes away for 2020. See the 2020 Volvo XC90 models for sale near you
Like much of the competition, the 2020 Volvo XC90 is an upscale family SUV offering loads of cargo space, or room for seven passengers when you need it. While it's now been on sale for six model years without a major redesign, the XC90 remains highly competitive in its segment, thanks in large part to its unique Scandinavian design, efficient powertrains, and thoughtful safety features. While buyers looking for big power who don't mind the idea of a hybrid can look toward the PHEV T8 model, we think most buyers will find that the T6 powertrain suits them just fine, as it comes with a more reasonable sticker price while still making good power. As far as trim level goes, the Momentum offers a good array of standard features, while the R-Design adds more style and some upscale appointments. Find a Volvo XC90 for sale
