For those looking for even more create comforts, a Bowers & Wilkins audio system can be optioned as can full LED headlights, heated front and rear seats, adaptive cruise control, a heated steering wheel, blind spot warning and a 360-degree view camera.

When optioned with front-wheel drive, the Volvo XC90 T5 starts at $44,945 with all-wheel drive adding $2,000. By comparison, the entry-level T6 is $3,850 more and the T8 plug-in hybrid is an extra $22,150.
