Exterior  - 2004 Volvo XC90 Review - Reviews - Volvo XC90

Chief Designer Peter Horbury calls the XC90s appearance masculine, but not macho; muscular, but not aggressive. At 188.9 inches long overall, the XC90 is 3.4 inches longer than Volvos V70 wagon. A 112.6-inch wheelbase and wide track dimensions help enhance stability. Ground clearance is 8.6 inches.

The XC90s styling features include tall taillamps, an accentuated V-shaped hood, a cockpit-forward profile and a dark, upright eggcrate grille. The 70/30-split tailgate flaunts a sporty angle.
