The three-row 2017 Volvo XC90 has been reborn into a pretty desirable luxury crossover SUV thanks to a sharp new look and style, an available hybrid model, a boatload of technologies, spacious second- and third-row benches, and confident handling.

For 2017, the new Volvo XC90 receives a mild refresh owing to the fact that it received its first ever comprehensive redesign last year, and it was the first since the vehicle’s debut back in 2003. Typically, models undergo a surgery about every five years or so, so the previous generation model was pretty much dated in today’s standards.

While there’s no denying the fact that Volvo’s safety and understated styling have long been the reasons why buyers flock their dealerships, the large crossover SUV segment has in the last couple of years undergone a major evolution that has seen plenty of new and fresher models come on board in terms of competition. This has had a negative impact on the sales of the old Volvo SUV, which is no longer the hip, bulletproof icon it used to be.
