Volvo has a knack for building cars that don't change much over the years, yet continue to satisfy buyers. Maybe that's because their main virtues—safety, durability, reliability—never go out of style.
The XC90 crossover has been with us since 2003 without a major makeover, even as newer competition has rolled onto the scene. Some of them offer more power, some more space, and some both. But nothing in its class has exceeded the XC90 in safety technology or sheer sobriety.
Buyers regard the XC90 in much the same way as they viewed Volvo station wagons years ago—the consummate safe bet in a family vehicle.
