Volvo Debuts Possibly the Most Luxurious SUV in Chicago

Consumers have been impressed with the Volvo XC90, and now the auto manufacturer is introducing what they are calling an ultra-luxurious model - the XC90 Excellence. It made its U.S. debut at the 2016 New York Auto Show, and it now seems obvious that luxurious may not be a strong enough word to describe the vehicle. The lavish amenities do come with a price, though. It may be the most luxurious, but it is also the most expensive Volvo ever offered to American consumers.

Volvo has announced the price of the XC90 Excellence to be $105,895. That includes a mandatory $995 destination charge. Mechanically, the Excellence is exactly the same as the top-tier XC90 with a T8 twin engine. Yes, that means this SUV is equipped with a plug-in hybrid powertrain. By comparison, even if you select every possible option on the XC90 T8, you're still only looking at an $80,990 price tag.

So what does that extra $25,000 get you? Volvo is calling it "first class luxury." For starters, there are only four seats, meaning there will be plenty of leg room. The front and rear seats are virtually identical with heated, ventilated and massaging technologies all wrapped in a Nappa leather trim. In addition, the rear seats recline to create a much more restful position. All of this can be enjoyed while listening to music from twenty Bowers & Wilkins speakers.

A full-length console runs from the dashboard through the middle of both seating rows. This console is also wrapped in leather with open pore wood details. Passengers in the rear seats can enjoy the use of a refrigerator with glass holders, and their cup holders come filled with handmade crystal glasses made by Orrefors of Sweden.
