The Volvo XC90 - No Minivan Necessary

The Volvo XC90 is Volvo's three-row luxury SUV. With three rows of roomy seating, luxury comfort, and the latest in safety equipment, the XC90 is built to be the perfect family vehicle.

All Volvo XC90 models are extremely well-equipped, with standard equipment that usually comes as an expensive option on competing vehicles. When it comes to safety and driver aides, the Volvo XC90 comes standard with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, and an oncoming-traffic lane mitigation system. This is part of Volvo's Pilot Assist system, which is a partially autonomous system.

The XC90 also comes standard with a 9-inch touchscreen offering Android Auto & Apple CarPlay and connected to a 10-speaker sound system. Dayton moms who choose a higher trim level will get a premium Harman Kardon speaker system.

But the real story here for Dayton moms is the spacious interior, offering three rows of premium seating and plenty of interior storage. The XC90's wide doors allow easy entry to the second and third rows, and the four-zone climate control means that all passengers will be comfortable, even on long road trips. If you're looking for a minivan replacement that still delivers in seating, luxury, and features, the Volvo XC90 is the perfect choice.

The Volvo XC60 Luxury SUV

While it doesn't offer the third row of the Volvo XC90, the XC60 is a hugely popular family vehicle. The XC60 offers a large, luxurious interior, as well as all the latest tech and safety features. If you won't regularly need the extra two seats of the Volvo XC90, the XC60 could be the perfect choice with its spacious second row and cargo area.

Standard features here are abundant, and similar to those that come with the XC90. Both vehicles also share the same engines, which make driving easy. The standard engine on both the XC60 and XC90 is the T5 at 250 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The popular upgrade on both vehicles is the T6, which offers 316 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Both engines provide confident acceleration and control, with the T6 producing greater power with a minimal effect on fuel efficiency.

And unlike most minivans, both the Volvo XC60 and XC90 are available with AWD. This can make a huge difference in Ohio winters, and help keep Dayton families safe out on the road. Whether you'r picking up your kids in the snow, or dealing with a sudden downpour, Volvo's SUVs provide strong traction and powerful safety aides to give Dayton moms confidence.
