The large bowtie company logo is mounted on the center. The bumper is twin colored. It is body colored below the lamps and silver colored below the grille and the logo. The side profile is dominant and highlighted by the character lines. The roof line curves to the back and then flows down. The car is available with either 18 or 20 inch wheels. The rear too has the typical Volvo look, reinforced by the Christmas tree tail lamps which run till the middle of the hatch door. Silver accents have been used tastefully at the back.
The sophisticated design of the interior is one of the major attractions of the Volvo New XC90. The seats are arranged in three rows. While the two front rows have ample space, the last row may be a little cramped.
