Moms rarely put themselves first. Every decision they make is based on what is best for their child/ren. Protecting said child/ren drives the majority of those decisions.

What if moms could sit back and pamper themselves while they protect their child/ren? What if moms could reduce the number of decisions they make on a daily basis simply by pushing some buttons? That would be a dream come true, right? Well, moms, if you want this dream actualized, head on over to Riley Volvo Cars Stamford to check out an XC90.

Truth be told, I’ve always caught myself checking out XC90s on the highway and in parking lots. They just look so sleek and inviting. A few years back, I remember sitting in the passenger seat of my friend’s XC90, experiencing my first taste of car envy as I swooned, oohing and aahing at all the magical features. When Dan, a friendly sales consultant at Riley Volvo Cars Stamford, walked me over to the bright silver 2021 model I would be borrowing, I was immediately in heaven.

One-touch entry to unlock the doors? Yes, please. Automatic Bluetooth pairing? Check. Cordless charging station? Wow, what a modern convenience!

It was a rainy Friday evening when I pulled out of the dealership and drove onto the busy I-95 North. I’m usually anxious in these conditions, but the navigation alerts, both on the dashboard and the side view mirrors put me at ease. I also quickly discovered the “heads-up display” feature, which projects the speed you’re going and the speed limit for the area, onto the bottom of the windshield. While you may select to turn it off, this unobtrusive reminder is incredibly helpful, particularly in residential neighborhoods when the speed limit changes from street to street.

My family consists of a very tall husband, a toddler in a bulky Britax, and two elementary school kids still in booster seats. The three-row seating was perfect for everyone. My tall husband had more than enough leg room, the Britax easily clipped into the latch system in the second row, and the big kids happily took over the third row and did not need any assistance buckling themselves. There’s even an alert on the dashboard that beeps and blinks if a kid unbuckles while the car is in motion!

The crowd favorite, though? The panoramic sunroof, which stretches across all three rows, letting every passenger take in the sky’s natural beauty!

Volvo, as a brand, prides itself on being family friendly and the XC90 fulfills that promise. Riley Volvo Cars Stamford, a family-owned business, prides itself on making families feel welcome. In the showroom, Annie’s cookies and crackers sit beside a variety of K-cup flavors. A simple touch that goes a long way.

Moms, next time you’re looking for a car, look no further than Riley Volvo Cars Stamford. Grab a cup of coffee and drive off in a beautiful XC90.
