Cars.com Reasons for the Best Car of 2016 Win
If you compare the specs of the Volvo XC90 to other luxury SUVs, it will look very similar. It mostly stands out with its exterior styling and safety features. It is impossible to underplay the safety, however, as the Volvo’s active-safety technologies go far past the competition. The collision protection and avoidance work in specific situations, like turning in front of a moving vehicle.
When you are behind the wheel, you will be treated to high-quality features throughout the cabin, a feeling that spreads to the mechanical controls. The central control screen puts you in charge of the majority of functions. It is executed well so there is no concern about usability. The system responds quickly and has clear menus. Cars.com also appreciates that Volvo doesn’t mess with a good thing, leaving the traditional gear selector in place.
