Volvo SUV Range

The SUV category has exploded in the last few years as many people opt for one in place of a family hatchback thanks to their higher driving positions and larger amounts of space inside.

Volvo say that "our SUVs give you better visibility, more confidence and help keep you and your loved ones safe."

The Volvo SUV family is made up of three options: XC90, XC60, and the XC40. These are then all available as plug in hybrid or pure electric models.

It may seem like many options but Volvo have a commitment to being carbon neutral by 2040 and only to produce pure electric new Volvo cars by 2030. As a result, they currently offer petrol and plug in hybrid or electric options for the SUV cars in their range

Volvo XC90

The Volvo XC90 is the largest model Volvo SUV available and the only Volvo car to offer a 7 seat option, making it a great choice for growing families.

It gives you a choice between the B5 petrol and B5 diesel 2.0 litre, four cylinder engines and offers all wheel drive. This is paired with an array of luxury finishes such as high quality leather seats and extra mile equipment like a blind spot information system or a data package which allows you to use your favourite apps.

Opting for the XC90 Recharge will give you a 28 and a half mile electric only range, ideal for the short journeys like the school run, emits only 34 g/km of CO2, and puts out an enormous 310HP thanks to the petrol engine working in tandem with an electric motor.
