2015 Volvo XC90 Configurator: Way Better Than Winter
You know what is extremely unfortunate and sad and terrible and just overall not a lot of fun? The fact that it was October—and, by extension, fall—a mere three weeks ago, and it’s increasingly likely that wherever you happen to be today, it feels an awful lot like the deep, dark bowels of winter once again.
That stuff? It’s bad.
Wanna know what’s not bad? The 2015 Volvo XC90 configurator, that’s what.
Granted, configurating what we’re pretty sure is going to be an amazing vehicle is not actually going to increase your body temperature or put the feeling back in your toes, but it will make you feel warm and fuzzy to a certain extent.
The configurator does not yet include the option for the T8 plug-in hybrid powertrain, so you’re looking at a starting base price of $48,900 for the 316-horsepower T6 with all-wheel drive.
Packages include Vision (Blind Spot Information System & Cross Traffic Alert, 360-degree surround view camera, auto-dimming and retractable mirrors), Climate (heated rear seats, steering wheel, windshield, and windshield washer nozzles), Climate with Graphical HUD, and Convenience (Park Assist Pilot/Front Park Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control with Pilot Assist & Lane Keeping Aid, Power 3rd row backrest, Homelink® Remote Garage Door Opener, compass for interior rearview mirror, grocery bag holder, and 12v power outlet).
There are a bevy of interior and exterior options to play around with, and you wind up topping out just beneath the $65,000 price roof, which isn’t bad at all for a brand-new luxury SUV that is tested to be among the safest vehicles on the road.
Not bad at all. Not like winter, though. Winter is just terrible. Go away, winter.
