Vehicle Overview  - 2004 Volvo XC90 Review - Reviews - Volvo XC90

Long known for safe, solid sedans and wagons, Volvo joined the sport utility vehicle fray in 2003 with its car-based XC90. The Swedish automaker promised the ride and handling of a passenger car. Volvo also claimed that the XC90 would be the safest SUV on the market. It features a Roll Stability Control System. In a collision, the front suspension subframe is compatible with a regular car.

The premium midsize XC90Тs chassis is based on the one used for VolvoТs S60 and S80 sedans. Available all-wheel drive permits operation in a variety of terrains, but the XC90 is not intended for serious offroad driving. When the front wheels begin to slip, up to 65 percent of engine power is diverted to the rear wheels.

For 2004, new 17-inch Aquarius alloy wheels are used, the flip-style key has an integrated remote control, and a leather gearshift knob has been added. Volvo offers 2.5T and T6 editions.
