It's hard to refer to the XC90 3.2 as a base model. There's simply nothing basic about this deservedly popular SUV.
It shows some minor cosmetic changes (more inside than out) for 2007, as the major changes are waiting for the vehicle's scheduled overhaul a couple of years from now.
Safety is still numero uno with every Volvo. Even this lowest-priced XC90 comes standard with Roll Stability Control and Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, as well as the Side-Impact Protection System and Rollover Protection System. This is no cheapie, nor should it be, and Volvo loyalists are happy to pay what it takes to get the best for their families.
Other standard equipment includes fog lights, daytime running lights, and mirror-mounted turn signals. These features help to improve safety, but it doesn't stop there: look closely for a teardrop-shaped feature at the base of the side-mount mirrors. It is, of all things, a camera, a component of the new BLIS (Blind-spot Information System), which uses digital imaging to detect things in the car's blind spots. Upon detection it triggers a warning light to alert the driver. Pretty amazing.
If you're really taken with helpful gadgetry, opt for the impressive bi-xenon headlights, which anticipate curves in the road and swivel up to 15 degrees to shine around the bends.
The XC90 3.2 is the first Volvo released with the much-anticipated I-6 engine, which was developed to replace the 2.5-liter, 208-hp of previous years. The state-of-the-art I-6 provides 235-horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque with no loss of fuel economy despite its larger size, thanks to keen technology. The engine is transversely mounted, saving space and therefore enhancing the car's life-saving crumple zones.
Fans of either transmission type will be satisfied, as the 6-speed Geartronic automatic transmission can also be shifted manually in situations when that is preferable (when towing, on curvy or snowy roads, or just to better feel what the engine can do).
To fully load your XC90, go for the big-dollar options of the Navigation System and Dual-Screen Rear Seat Entertainment System. You can also opt for 18-inch wheels on this vehicle.

If you want to have it all, and "all" by your definition includes all-wheel drive, then this is the SUV for you. It's the ideal transporter for the family, especially with the third-row seat (with separate AC controls) and integrated second-row child booster seat included with this trim.
The 4.4-liter V8 was designed exclusively for use in this and the Sport trim of the XC90.
Technological advances allow this engine exceptional fuel economy and emissions control for its size. The versatile Geartronic automatic transmission lets you operate manually or automatically, as the driving situation - or your mood - dictates.
This isn't just any AWD; it's Electronically-controlled All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction. That means that the system monitors driving situations and when conditions call for a transfer of more power (the front wheels get most of the power in normal driving conditions) to the rear wheels, the system responds as such. This eliminates oversteering and understeering problems and minimizes wheel spin in sudden acceleration for the ultimate in control.
This luxury vehicle contains all of the safety equipment Volvo is famous for, most of it in acronym form: Roll Stability Control and DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control), as well as the SIPS (Side-Impact Protection System) and ROPS (Rollover Protection System). Buyers of this SUV are willing to pay to get the best, and they get it indeed.
The V8 AWD XC90 comes loaded with a power glass mooonroof, 6-CD in-dash changer with 8 speakers, and color-coordinated body side moldings and door handles. For full luxury, upgrade from cloth seats to Sovereign Hide leather. There is also an upgrade available for 18-inch wheels.
A more useful option might be the BLIS (Blind-spot Information System), which uses digital imaging to detect things in the car's blind spots. Upon detection it triggers a warning light to alert the driver. The system's camera is built into the base of the side-mount mirrors.

It's useful, it's luxurious, and it's just plain fun to drive. That's the package that the 2007 Volvo XC90 AWD Sport presents to the lucky person behind its wheel.
The Sport trim of the XC90 features an array of interior enhancements, from the instrumentation to the floor mats. The 4.4-liter V8 that powers it was designed exclusively for use in the AWD XC90s. Technological advances afford the engine exceptional fuel economy and emissions control for its size. The Geartronic automatic transmission lets the driver choose between automatic and manual shifting, so you make the call, whether you're cruising, towing, or negotiating a curvy mountain road.
The Electronically-controlled All-Wheel Drive with Instant Traction is truly exceptional. The system monitors driving situations and when conditions call for some power transfer to the rear wheels (the front wheels get most of the power in normal driving conditions), the system responds as such, eliminating oversteering and understeering problems and minimizing wheel spin upon sudden acceleration. With the Sport-tuned chassis on this trim, you'll experience unparalleled stability and the ultimate in control.
This luxury vehicle contains all of the safety equipment Volvo is famous for, most of it in acronym form: Roll Stability Control and DSTC (Dynamic Stability and Traction Control), as well as the SIPS (Side-Impact Protection System) and ROPS (Rollover Protection System). Buyers of this SUV get what they pay for: the best in safety and comfort.
This is a wonderful vehicle for active and well-to-do young singles as well as families. It's as much in its place hauling a gaggle of snowboarders to the backcountry as it is dropping the kids off at school.
The V8 AWD XC90 Sport comes loaded with leather, a power glass mooonroof, 6-CD in-dash changer with 8 speakers, 19-inch wheels, and color-coordinated body side moldings and door handles. For full luxury, upgrade from cloth seats to Sovereign Hide leather. There's also a Technology Package of options available which includes active Bi-Xenon gas-discharged headlamps, complete with washers. These headlamps have the ability to pivot up to 15 degrees to illuminate around bends in the road. Other components of this options package are a premium sound system, including a six-month paid subscription to Sirius Satellite Radio.
