New Volvo XC90 SUV

Meet the Stylish and Powerful 2021 Volvo XC90 at Volvo Cars Manasquan

The 2021 Volvo XC90 is an amazing luxury midsize SUV. It has many positive attributes, especially its interior quality and safety features. It's an SUV with a lot to offer buyers in Manasquan. If you want an SUV with three rows, then the XC90 should be on your radar. This is especially true if you are new to the luxury market because the XC90 is a great entry point. Although it falls into the luxury category, it provides good value because the list of standard features is long.

The Volvo XC90: An Impressive Three-Row SUV

The XC90's current generation began in 2016. It's been a strong contender in its category ever since. Volvo always emphasizes safety in its vehicle design but having an SUV of this size as a luxury vehicle opens up room for other feature sets and characteristics. This is a mature part of the cycle of the XC90.

Volvo has steadily added more and more features to the SUV and refined the trim levels so that 2021 is a great representation of what Volvo has always intended the XC90 to be. The XC90 will likely undergo a new redesign sometime in the next few years, but that is not immediate. The XC90 is the largest vehicle that Volvo offers. If you like how Volvo designs its cars and SUVs and you need a lot of space, then the XC90 is your best option.

It is also a good fit if you live in Toms River and are interested in a vehicle large and rich enough in features to support a growing family at a reasonable price. Large SUV prices tend to be much higher than midsize ones, and midsize SUVs are the least expensive vehicle class with three rows.

Safety Features

The latest Volvo XC90 performs excellently in crash tests. That's an important attribute in SUVs because you want them to be protective in the event of a crash. The safety tech can help reduce the chances of that crash around Lakewood. As you might expect from the Volvo name, the XC90 has many safety tech tools.

They can be divided between sensing tools that can monitor and alert you to surrounding concerns like other cars and obstacles and the active driver assistance tools like adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking that alter how the car controls. As with other areas of the XC90's design, the Volvo XC90 has more features in its base trim than the competition's equivalent base trims.

Technology and Interior

The Volvo XC90 comes with advanced tech and an easy-to-manage interface. Its standard features include a digital instrument panel, a moonroof, navigation, parking and traffic sensors, and synthetic leather, with genuine leather being an upgrade. These features, particularly the moonroof and the onboard navigation, are top-level trim options in other SUVs, even luxury ones. The infotainment features are grouped under the brand name Sensus, and it appears on some other Volvo vehicles as well.

You can add onboard Wi-Fi as well to expand the utility of those features around Brick, NJ. In 2021, some new interior features become standard, like wireless charging pads for your devices. In addition to being technologically advanced, the interior has a lot of room, more so than other SUVs in the midsize category. That adds more practicality to the XC90 to go along with the flash of the tech.


When it comes to configuring an XC90, there are two choices to make. The first is which of the three engines to take, and the second is which of the three trims to choose. The three engines are all turbocharged. The first one, the T5, has 250 horsepower. The second one, the T6, ups the power with 316 horsepower, an increase that you can feel. The T8 engine is the most powerful at 400 horsepower, and it is also a plug-in hybrid. All three engines are compatible with any of the trims, so the changes from trim to trim are mostly related to luxury, comfort, and tech features, not performance.

Trim Levels

The three trims are the Momentum, R-Design, and Inscription. The Momentum, the base trim, has a sensing and safety tech suite, a nine-inch touchscreen, lots of connectivity tools, two USB ports, and more. The R-Design has leather, a new look, extra tech, and more sensors. The Inscription mostly adds seating upgrades. Each trim has its own set of packages and options.

The best choice depends on how many of the extra features you want. The R-Design likely has the most value in terms of features and cost. The engine choice comes down to you-the power and the hybrid nature of the T8 are appealing, but that engine also costs the most. The T6 and T8 engines come with more extra features than the base T5 engine.
