Volvo XC90 4x4 Hire Marbella
The Volvo XC90 is a mid-luxury crossover SUV that features many innovative safety features, which makes it easily one of the safest vehicles on the market. This 4-door SUV seats five, is available with front or all-wheel drive, and has a 4.4 liter v8 engine with 311 horsepower. As you can see, the XC90 is adequate in regard to the premium mid-size SUV competition. It is certainly not the most powerful or flashy SUV on the market, but what the XC90 lacks in horsepower it more than makes up for with its safety and reliability, hallmarks that Volvo is well-known for. Volvo tends to do things differently than most premium automotive companies, since they view safety and kid-friendliness to be just as important as driving performance and amenities.

Driving the Volvo XC90
The XC90 drives just as you would expect a safe, heavy Volvo SUV to drive. Ride quality is smooth and the cabin remains quiet, while handling is solid yet not particularly sporty. With all-wheel drive, this model handles great in the snow, but is not meant for any hardcore off-road excursions. The Volvo XC90 pioneered Roll Stability Control, which uses a gyro sensor to identify every SUV owners’ greatest fear, the dreaded rollover. When the XC90 senses that a rollover may occur it simply activates the stability control system and attempts to resolve the issue before it becomes dangerous. Another welcome feature is the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which watches images from a pair of cameras mounted on the side mirrors of the SUV. Then BLIS alerts the driver with an indicator light when another vehicle moves into your blind spot, which can be helpful no matter what environment you are driving in. Although its on-road performance is rather average with regard to other models in its class, the Volvo XC90 still offers an impressive combination of safety, sturdiness, and style.
Safety of the Volvo XC90
Volvo is known for its safety features and the XC90 is a perfect example of this dedication since it pioneers both Roll Stability Control and the Blind Spot Information System. The XC90 also provides side curtain airbag protection in all three rows in addition to an emergency communications system and anti-whiplash seats. Volvo crash safety is legendary, and it should come as no surprise that this midsize SUV has scored well in testing. The front end is specifically designed to absorb frontal impacts as well as deflect any objects (such as pedestrians or animals) up onto the hood of the vehicle instead of underneath. The roof has also been reinforced with high-strength steel that will help prevent a collapse in the passenger cavity in the event of a rollover. Overall the Volvo XC90 is an exceptional SUV that may not be the most powerful or fastest on the road, but one that cannot be beat for safety and reliability in an SUV.
