If there’s one thing the Volvo XC90 is known for, it’s sophistication. While it’s an undeniably stylish and high-performing SUV, the new XC90 gets much of its elegance from its intelligence. The Volvo XC90 SUV’s technology proves that, unlike some competitors drive quality isn’t all about the powertrain; its equipment does everything from maintaining preset distance intervals to helping you navigate through rural areas like Bozeman, MT or Sheridan, WY.

Intelligence That Drives You

Autonomous technologies are gaining traction in the automotive industry, and the 2018 Volvo XC90 is helping to make that possible. The available Convenience Package includes a handful of must-have features—one of which was designed to make your daily commutes as seamless as possible: Pilot Assist. Pilot Assist works in accordance with Adaptive Cruise Control to help drivers maintain a preset distance interval between them and the vehicle ahead.

Pilot Assist allows you to drive more confidently in slow traffic, up to 30 mph. Once you set a predetermined distance interval, Pilot Assist will use its camera, radar unit, and distance readers to keep tabs on straight-ahead traffic. The system regulates the distance interval by autonomously accelerating and braking whenever necessary. This allows you to pay attention to other aspects of the road, without constantly monitoring the distance between you and the vehicle ahead.

Entertainment and Information

The 2018 Volvo XC90 SUV’s technology focuses on connecting you to your vehicle, as well as keeping you entertained and informed. Below, you’ll find just a handful of the features that come standard on the base model:

  • Volvo On Call: Wherever you venture, the Volvo On Call mobile app lets you double-check lock status, view maintenance warnings, request roadside assistance, and more.
  • Sensus Connect: This handy system is operable via the central display, and turns your cockpit into an internet-connected command base, allowing you to access entertainment, navigation, service apps, and more.
  • High-Performance Audio System: Standard on the XC90, this powerful 10-speaker audio system can be controlled via voice commands, multi-function steering wheel, or central display. Tack on an optional air-ventilated subwoofer for an added punch.
