"The Volvo XC90 Executive is the most prestigious version of the XC90, specially designed for the most discerning customers," says Karin Falk, head of Special Vehicles at Volvo Cars. "To meet the high expectations for refined design and sophisticated comfort, we have further enhanced the model, over and above the new features offered on the XC90."

Elegant chrome and silver trim

The XC90 Executive is identified by the discreet emblem on the rear door pillar. The special character is created by, among other things, the chrome finish of the door mirrors and C-pillars, and the colour-coordinated wheel arch extenders.

At the rear, the XC90 Executive has an oval tailpipe that encases both exhaust pipes. To further enhance its profile, the Volvo XC90 Executive rolls on 19-inch alloy wheels.

Exclusive first-class feel in the cabin

The XC90 Executive's cabin is designed and equipped to provide a lavish, first-class, feel.

One of the upholstery alternatives is the classically cut Executive leather, with stitching and edging in contrasting colours. In order to provide everyone in the vehicle with a similar perception, the same grade of leather is now also used in the third row of seats.

Walnut panel inlays are standard and the gauges in the main instrument panel have a distinct, watch dial-inspired design.

The specially designed, extra thick pile carpeting adds to the cabin's exclusive ambience.

Choice of power - from the 232kW V8 to the five-cylinder turbo diesel

The range of engines available in the XC90 Executive includes the 4.4-litre V8, the new 3.2-litre six-cylinder inline engine, and the latest generation D5 diesel. All of the engines are compact and transversely mounted in the engine bay to offer the best possible safety and a roomy cabin.

V8 4.4L V8 232kW 440Nm
