New Year, new you, why not a new car? I’m ready to leave 2021 in the dust, preferably dust created by the tire tracks of a Volvo XC90!

I had the pleasure of test-driving the XC90 for a weekend during the holidays and immediately added the car to my list for Santa. I used the car to do all things Christmasy (cutting down a tree at Maple Row Farm, The Holiday Lights show at the Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater, running around town to Christmas shop), and I did it all in style!

Words that immediately come to mind are dependable, luxury, adventure, and safety. From the moment I pulled onto I-95 North in the pouring rain during rush hour to bopping around town for errands, I found the XC90 to be incredibly reliable and comfortable.Volvo XC90 front and back view.

As my children continue to grow, our needs as a family change. I need more room for carpools, sports gear, and device chargers! However, one thing has always remained the same. We need a safe and reliable car.

Some of my favorite features were the heated and cooling seats, parking assistance, sunroof, and lane-keeping aid. I also found the seatbelt alarm, camera system, and traveling speed on the window to be super helpful. The trunk room was generous; it even fit a Bob-sized stroller when the “third row” of seats was in the upright position.

The latch system was available in the second row of seats, and the anchor was available on all four rear seats. I also loved the navigation system with a heated steering wheel, hands-free liftgate, and blind-spot monitor. These features contributed to me feeling safe and secure while driving my family around.

Volvo considers everything; the technology is top-notch, the design is sleek, the safety features are incredibly thoughtful, and environmentally the car can help you reduce your carbon footprint!

The overall attention to detail is worth noting! Not to mention, it is a very striking and sexy-looking car! The car is also so much FUN! I am declaring it the #1 tailgating car of the season!
