Volvo Brings New XC90 Excellence 4-Seater To NY, Prices It From $104,900

Just as production kicked off in Sweden, the ultra-luxurious variant of Volvo’s XC90 SUV is on display in the Big Apple.

Instead of the regular XC90’s seven seat layout, the Excellence replaces the last two rows with two individual reclining rear chairs with massage function, reducing seating capacity to four. In addition, the front passenger seat can be replaced by an infant carrier, a footrest or even an LCD screen,

Not only do rear passengers get a whole lot more legroom over the standard model, but they’re also pampered with amenities, including a retractable control touchscreen, refrigerator with bottle and glass holders, a cup holder with heating and cooling functions, folding tables and handmade crystal glasses.

The long list of equipment offered by the Swedish manufacturer also includes a premium Bowers & Wilkins sound system, with 20 speakers and 1400-watt, open-poor wood and Nappa leather.

Powered exclusively by the T8 Twin-Engine Plug-in Hybrid Electric, the system provides 400 hp, available at the driver’s disposal in three driving modes: Pure, Hybrid and Power. Volvo keeps its performance specs in the dark, but the standard SUV, equipped with the same powertrain, needs 5.6 seconds to do the naught to 62 mph (100 km/h) sprint.

The Volvo XC90 Excellence will go on sale across the US starting from this summer, with prices, excluding delivery and handling, starting from $104,900 (MSRP).
