Dan Smith

Smoking or non-smoking? AM or FM? Manual or automatic? These were the choices people had to grapple with just a few decades ago. If you want a vehicle, you have to ask: Sedan, truck, SUV?

The exterior of the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge has remained relatively unchanged since the 2016 award-winning model made headlines. 2022 (and 2023 for that matter) seems to be a bit stuck on styling. Here we come!

That said, we think there's still room for the minimal, clean, purpose-driven shape of the 2022 Volvo XC90. Ours arrived in a beautiful pine gray metallic between green and grey, with Inscription trim bringing in elements like chrome bars on the front grille and window His trim and unique 20-inch His wheels. The sides feature long, wide sheet metal, leading to a characteristic wide hips accentuated by tall vertical taillights. , it's still a handsome SUV.

The XC90's performance belies its Swedish stoic style

If you know German car engineering, you know the ease and minimalism of Swedish style. Volvo has managed to make his £5,000 wheeled three-row safe feel fast, light and surprisingly fun to drive. It's not a Volvo C30 R-Design, but wielding a Swedish magic wand he created a 455 hp family his hauler. A 2.0-liter in-line four-cylinder engine brings his 312 horses to the table, while an electric motor drives his 143 additional ponies to mix and boom, the 455. It has the best of both worlds: an efficient small engine and a load of torque from the electric motor. Derailment.

Speaking of electric motors, the first Recharge launched with a mind-boggling 18 miles of EV range. Volvo clearly knew it was a problem, so midway through the year he offered an "extended range" that doubled the electric-only output in "pure" driving mode to 36 miles. Much less during sports. Not only did this mean I could run errands, finish a production shot, meet friends and eat pizza the day it arrived without using a single drop of gas, but when I got back to the office I could plug it in. was plugged in. and the battery charges him in 4 hours (costs about $6). Volvo claims the little 2.0-liter will return a total of 27 mpg, even after the battery dies, on a road trip, or if you end up driving more than you expected between charges. .

We love how fast and agile the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge drives. Part of that dynamic is thanks to air suspension with an optional CCD package for $1800. Of course, this helps balance a car loaded with people, luggage, and Christmas trees as it turns corners and offsets its natural tendency to lean. Therefore, it is also useful when loading large luggage in the trunk. Just in case you can't put his 4th bag of mulch in the back. Yeah, you're out of this world loading his $84,000 luxury SUV with a bag of mulch. All in all, this her three-row Swedish cruise liner was surprisingly planted, got out of corners quickly, and was buttery-smooth on long family trips.

Opening the large driver's door, the 2022 Volvo XC 90 Recharge greeted us with natural elements such as leather, wood and aluminium. Nappa leather (heated/ventilated) perforated seats, contrast-stitched leather steering wheel and dashboard, wood deco, his inlays, and even the crystal shifter look like a well-paid Manhattan therapist's office. It gave the interior a calm atmosphere. It felt relaxing and almost trustworthy. As strange as it sounds, I loved sitting in the quiet part of the cabin.

The aforementioned crystal shifter is an interesting adornment in its own right. Volvo tapped the 100-year-old glass company Orefors (named on the shifter) to create this single piece that naturally refracts the natural light that enters the car. Light is very important in Sweden because the days are short and dark in winter. The automaker has realized that this is both a simple nod to the homeland and a subtle highlight of the driving experience. Other brands use crystal/glass for shifters these days like the Genesis GV60 and BMW iX M60, but they look fancy and flashy. I thought this was good.

The 2023 Volvo XC 90 is all about luxury, but technology lags behind. Driver He gets a 12.3-inch digital display, but it's not as customizable as some of its competitors. However, when you start the car, a graphic appears telling you that Volvo has run a checklist of all safety systems and will let you know with the next little peace of mind check. His 9-inch vertical touchscreen in the center console was also a bit of a disappointment. I use Volvo's Sensus Connect platform and have had no problems with it. But when using Apple CarPlay, I had to connect my phone (not wireless) and it was only displayed horizontally using about half of the vertical screen. This meant that the $84,000 luxury SUV offered as much screen space for maps and music as the Mazda CX-5. After all that, I was blown away by the $3,200 Bowers & Wilkins audio upgrade. Especially the "Concert" setup brought a whole new level of listening to our ears.

The interior of the 2022 Volvo XC90 was a treat to our ears and eyes. The panoramic roof is huge and we loved how it helped with the airy cabin feel.Both second-row passengers take advantage of unique climate options that give the XC90 a total of four temperature variations Did. Plus, thanks to the air purifier included in the $1650 Advanced He package (which also adds a head-up display and a 360-degree camera), everyone was able to enjoy clean air. Like many of his three-row SUV options, the Volvo sacrifices comfort for the sad soul in the back seat. Admittedly, it won't satisfy adults, but even taller kids can frustrate parents to the point of finally pulling away from the tight fit. Perfect for

Volvo as a brand is like the best roommate ever. They continue to hold onto their luxurious Swedish roots in minimalist design where form and function transition seamlessly, and the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge offers all this and more. It brings some impressive driving dynamics (for a large SUV) to the table and, of course, offers nearly 40 miles of electric-only range. The 2023 models are all either hybrid or electric (and powered by Google) only, so it's clear they're aiming to be fully electric by 2030. The transition to electric will take time and confuse many."How does this Prius work?"Something like a plug-in hybrid makes sense as a gateway to the next generation of fully electric vehicles. I'm here. So it doesn't matter if EV components are only part of the story...with Volvo promising to go fully electric by 2030, that's just a few years away.
