2021 Volvo XC90 Trims & Specs

Pairing two powertrain options, T5 and T6 denominations indicating turbocharged and twin-charged four-cylinder engines respectively, and three specification levels of Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription, the non-hybrid XC90 lineup comprises six trim configurations. Adding to the customization, T6-equipped Momentum and Inscription variants can be had with six seats while all other configurations boast seven. The T5 powertrain is available with both front and all-wheel drivetrains, while the T6 is exclusively all-wheel driven.

For the most part, standard equipment is comprehensive across the range, with full-LED headlights, a panoramic sunroof, quad-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and a portrait-orientation infotainment screen with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM, HD Radio, and Bluetooth functionality. A 12.3-inch digital display caters to instrumentation, while a comprehensive driver-assist suite includes adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, semi-autonomous functionality, blind-spot monitoring, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors.

🚗What 2021 Volvo XC90 Model Should I Buy?

Due to the size of the XC90, we'd immediately recommend steering clear of the less powerful T5 engine and instead opt for the T6. This gives you an impressive amount of power, but without the exorbitant cost of the plug-in hybrid Recharge. From there, it's all about what equipment you want. The Momentum is already well equipped if you're looking for something special on somewhat of a budget, but the Volvo XC90's charm is in its luxury. For that reason, we'd suggest springing for the seven-seat T6 Inscription. We'd spec the Denim Blue premium paint, the Amber leather upholstery, and both the Advanced and Lounge packages. The air suspension is a must-have for the best possible ride quality, and the Bowers & Wilkins sound system simply can't be recommended enough. All in, it's an MSRP of $72,095 excluding destination.
