Volvo XC is a series of three different models that are currently among the best selling in their own classes – and there is a good reason for that – Volvo is known as a car manufacturer that produces durable and functional cars, that are at the same time among the most safe cars in the world. Unlike any other car manufacturer, Volvo has special tests for their own cars and also their models have much more safety features than any other car. The 2016 Volvo XC Series consists of XC60, XC70 and 2016 Volvo XC90.
2016 Volvo XC90 Exterior
All three cars from the 2016 Volvo XC are crossovers – XC60 and XC70 are compact, while the Volvo XC90 2016 is a mid-size luxury crossover. They all have similar design, while the XC90 has a lot more details on the exterior, because it is the most expensive of the three. The front of the XC series has quite similar front grille (that houses the Volvo logo and has chrome detailing) and similar headlights (the XC60 has standard elements, while the XC90 has only LED elements).
However, in terms of shape and size they are quite different – the XC60 is a typical compact crossover, the XC70 is a mix of an estate car and an SUV, while the XC90 is a true mid-size luxury crossover and it is the biggest of the three. All three cars from the 2016 Volvo XC come win similar colors, while the alloy wheels differ in size and design from the cheapest to the most expensive of the three.
Probably the most interesting model is the 2016 Volvo XC90, because it really looks best, thanks to lots of small details on the exterior – like the chrome grille, front bumper with LED daytime running lights and headlights that are state-of-the-art thanks to the new LED elements.
Volvo XC90 2016 Interior
While the three cars from the 2016 Volvo XC series are similar on the exterior, on the inside is a completely different story. Probably the biggest difference is not in the design itself, but in the quality of materials used for the interior. The cheapest of the three – the XC60 has the low level quality materials, while the most expensive – the 2016 Volvo XC90 has only the premium and high quality materials used for the interior.
Apart from that, there are significant differences between the features and equipment list in between the three cars of the 2016 Volvo XC series – the XC60 can be customized to cost more than the base version of the XC90!
Volvo XC90 Engine
All three cars from the 2016 Volvo XC series are offered with lots of different engines to choose from – XC60 comes with 3.0l and 2.0l petrol and 2.0l and 2.5l Turbo Diesel engines, the XC70 has even more engines to choose from – from 3.2l petrol to 2.5l diesel engines.
The 2016 Volvo XC90 comes with 2.0l Drive-E engines that are available in different configurations.
