Very plush Swede for SA
THE range-topping Volvo XC90 Excellence is now available in South Africa. As one of the most luxurious models in Volvo’s 89-year history, the flagship Swedish SUV redefines what is possible in a luxury vehicle and brings out the best in terms of sophistication, opulence and ultimate splendour.
Produced on a separate, specialised line at Volvo Cars’ Torslanda plant in Gothenburg, Sweden, the new XC90 Excellence is available exclusively with Volvo’s T8 Twin Engine power train and built on the modular scalable product architecture (SPA) platform as a bespoke four-seater, providing absolute luxury to all of the four occupants.
“The XC90 Excellence offers a sublime and luxurious experience. It is our top-of-the-line XC90 offering and we have seen a lot of interest from our more affluent customers across the globe,” said Björn Annwall, senior vice president marketing, sales and service at Volvo Cars.
“The additional sound insulation, enhanced Bowers & Wilkins sound system and the convenience of rearseat controls elevate the XC90 Excellence to a new level of luxurious calm and comfort.”
Including a five-year or 100 000 km full vehicle warranty and full maintenance plan, the new Volvo XC90 Excellence retails for R1 550 000, and is available on an order-only basis. — Wheels Reporter.
