Volvo Canada announces pricing for new Volvo XC90 SUV

Toronto, Ontario – Volvo Canada announced pricing for the 2003 XC90 sport utility vehicle today. The XC90 2.5T will start at $54,995, and the XC90 T6 has a suggested list price of $59,995.

Standard equipment in the 7-passenger XC90 2.5T will include a turbocharged 5-cylinder engine and 5-speed automatic transmission, Haldex electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system and the newly-developed Roll-Over Protection System (ROPS), including a sophisticated computer system called Roll Stability Control which helps reduce the risk of rolling over.

The top-of-the-line Volvo XC90 T6 has a suggested list price of $59,995 and features a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine and a long list of luxury and convenience features.

In addition to the ROPS, standard safety equipment in the XC90 includes enhanced Inflatable Curtain (IC) technology. This system features a special air bag which extends downward from the outer roof edge to protect occupants in all three rows of seating in the case of side impact, and inflates for a longer duration in the case of a roll-over. Other safety features include the front architecture of the XC90 that helps align its energy-absorbing safety systems with that of smaller vehicles (to help protect those occupants), efforts to mitigate the results of an impact on a pedestrian, and safety for passengers in the third row of seats.

The Volvo XC90 will go on sale November 1, 2002, at Volvo dealers across the country.
