What's New in the 2019 Volvo XC90?

The entry level T5 Momentum version now has third-row seating, quad-zone climate control, heated windshield washer nozzles, a garage door opener, a compass in the rearview mirror, dark birch wood trim and a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, while all-wheel-drive variants receive heated front seats. But it does lose the Navigation Pro feature and the cargo cover.

This model is eligible for a new optional Multimedia Package that has Navigation Pro, a 12.3-in digital driver information display and a Harman Kardon audio system upgrade.

The T5 R-Design gains the Navigation Pro system, plus sun shades for the rear side doors, a tailored dashboard and upper door panels, plus the Harman Kardon audio system, while losing the full LED headlights with automatic high beams and high-pressure cleaning. Virtually the same comings and goings apply to the T6 R-Design and T6 Inscription models.

The 2019 XC90 also sees a new optional Advanced Package that includes the full LED headlights with automatic high beams and high-pressure cleaning, a self-steering parking feature, a 360-degree camera system and a head-up display. And the Luxury Package now includes a heated steering wheel.See the 2019 Volvo XC90 models for sale near you

Which XC90 is the Best?

Even though Momentum is the entry level trim, it still comes with many features. We'd be inclined to pass on the T5 setup and look at the T6 first. From that point, it would depend on how much more is needed or wanted. Find a Volvo XC90 for sale

How Much Does a 2019 Volvo XC90 Cost?

The 2019 Volvo XC90 comes in T5, T6 and T8 versions. Accommodation is for seven, except the super-luxurious T8 Excellence trim level that seats four.

The T5 is sold in Momentum and R-Design trims. The T6 is available in Momentum, R-Design or Inscription. And the T8 comes in Momentum, R-Design, Inscription or Excellence trims.

T5 Momentum ($48,695) comes well equipped with 18-in alloy wheels, a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone automatic climate control, premium vinyl upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 10-way power-adjustable front seats with driver's-side memory settings, heated front seats (AWD versions), a hands-free lift gate, roof rails, rain-sensing wipers, heated windshield washer nozzles, a garage door opener, a compass in the self-dimming rearview mirror, dark birch wood trim, drive mode selection, a rearview camera, navigation, keyless entry/ignition, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, Bluetooth phone and audio, a 9-in touchscreen (set vertically) and a 10-speaker audio system with satellite radio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, USB port and an auxiliary input. A suite of advanced protection features (see the Safety section below) are also part of the stock package.

T5 R-Design ($55,945) adds a sportier steering wheel with gearshift paddles, plus 20-in alloys, sport seats, leather upholstery, automatic high beams, sun shades for the rear side doors, navigation, Harman Kardon audio and various cosmetic touches.

T6 Momentum ($57,295) brings its own specific drivetrain, then adds 19-in wheels, heated front seats and leather upholstery.

T6 R-Design ($62,245) builds on the Momentum in much the same way as the T5 version.

T6 Inscription ($63,345) has even nicer leather upholstery to accompany its own set of plusher cosmetic additions. Comfort comes more to the fore as heated/ventilated front seats provide adjustable bolstering.

T8 Momentum ($67,995) includes the plug-in hybrid drivetrain, but otherwise echoes the Momentum versions of the T5 and T6. It's a similar formula for the T8 R-Design ($72,945).

T8 Inscription ($74,045) contributes adaptive LED headlights and daytime running lights, crystal-topped gear shift and extendable under-thigh support for the front seats.

T8 Excellence ($105,895) is limousine quality. Virtually everything is standard. Rear accommodation consists of two reclining captain's chairs with heating, ventilating and massaging functions, folding trays, heated/cooled cup holders (with a pair of crystal glasses), a rear touchscreen, a refrigerator, more leather, more sound insulation and 21-in alloy wheels.

Among the many options are built-in children's booster seats (for the outer positions in the second row), adaptive air suspension, 22-in wheels and a Bowers & Wilkins 19-speaker audio system.

The third row can split and fold in 50/50 fashion. Behind these seats is a generous 15.8 cu ft. of cargo space. Fold down the second and third rows for a maximum of 85.7 cu ft. No rivals can offer anything better.

Is the 2019 Volvo XC90 a Safe Car?

The words Volvo and safety go together like parks and recreation. As well as the mandatory anti-lock brakes, airbags and traction control, the XC90 comes standard with a forward-collision warning system featuring automatic braking and detection of pedestrians and cyclists, plus adaptive cruise control, and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

Run-Off Road Protection is also standard. Should the XC90 suddenly leave the pavement, the system tightens seat belts and uses shock-absorbing seat cushions to reduce the risk of spinal injuries. Optional safety features are lane departure intervention and a 360-degree camera system.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has given the XC90 five out of five stars overall. In front and side impacts, it earned five stars. It took four stars in the rollover test. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has made it a Top Safety Pick+ after awarding the vehicle its highest score of Good in all the major categories.

2019 Volvo XC90 vs the competition

2019 Acura MDX -- Can seat seven and has a tempting equipment-to-expenditure ratio.

2019 Audi Q7 -- In generational terms, even younger than the XC90. Packed with technology, space and cool designs.

2019 BMW X5 -- The driver's choice, but not too firm. Comes with diesel and plug-in hybrid alternatives. An all-new generation debuts for 2019 with optional third-row seating.

2019 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class -- A plug-in hybrid is available. Seating for five and classy enough to wear its famed badge. An all-new generation debuts for the 2020 model year, offering a third seating row.

2019 Lexus RX -- Well built and a big seller. The looks might deter some buyers. The unremarkable driving experience might put off others. A hybrid version is available. Seats five.

2019 Land Rover Range Rover Sport -- Has much of its bigger sibling's plushness in a more accessible package. Seats five.
