Volvo XC90 Signature Edition Is the Swan Song of the 11-Year-Old SUV

Late next year, Volvo will release an all-new XC90 SUV that will be influenced by the styling of the Concept Coupe study displayed at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

In the meantime, Volvo has announced a special series of its current-generation XC90 SUV for the French market. Called Signature Edition, the limited edition model is a range-topping model that brings luxury features and exclusive exterior enhancements.

Based on the R-Design trim level, the XC90 Signature Edition features additional equipment including an RTI navigation system, RSE multimedia system for the rear seats, Volvo Premium Sound audio system and audio jacks for the rear seats. Standard equipment also includes an electric sunroof, electrically adjustable rear seats, and heated front seats.

Luxury touches include the leather upholstery, Aluminum inserts and the blue background of the instrument panel.

The exterior of the SUV stands out from regular XC90s thanks to Aluminum elements including the engine protection panel, mirror caps, side skirts, roof bars, rear diffuser and the 19-inch ‘Ixion’ wheels. Tinted rear windows and intelligent xenon headlights are also offered as standard.

The Volvo XC90 Signature Edition is priced in France from a whopping €62,850 ($85,325), which is still €2,595 ($3,520) less than if all the optional extras were specified individually. However, Volvo says dealers are entitled to offer discounts – rather hefty ones I assume, if they’re willing to move the cars off their lots.

The upcoming all-new XC90 will be the first vehicle developed under Geely’s ownership and will inaugurate Volvo’s new design language, as well as the brand’s new Scalable Product Architecture (SPA), which will include a new generation of four-cylinder engines.
