Volvo's reputation for reliability and safety is impressive. Their focus on emerging technologies has always been a priority, and that is made clear when it comes to the 2020 Volvo XC90. This three-row SUV has been named “Car of the Decade” by experts at Autotrader, but how will it hold up against time?

How Long Will a 2020 Volvo XC90 Last?

Premium Materials

The use of the industry's strongest steel and hot-formed boron provides a lighter car than previous years, with a stronger chassis. This material has also allowed for structural improvements, allowing for greater longevity as well as an added layer of safety.

Swedish Design 

Volvo's modular engine architecture has been the subject of much praise and one of their focal points when it comes to durability. Swedish design meets top performance with all available engines, but notably, the base model T5 engine has been awarded “Engine of the Year” on two separate occasions. This engine isn't going anywhere.

Smooth Transmission

The eight-speed automatic gearbox guarantees the car's ability to distribute its torque and power range effectively. Additionally, the transmission features two overdrive gears that save fuel and lower engine stress when driving at constant speeds.

The Latest Tech

In a fast-moving industry, Volvo manages to not only keep up with technological advances, but it pays consistent attention to minute details. Over the last year, there have been over 7 updates to the XC90's software, carefully fine-tuning every aspect of the car over time, ensuring the longest life span possible.

Safety That Set the Standard

When it comes to safety, Volvo's safety features are world-renowned.  For the past 9 years, the XC90 has received the “TOP SAFETY PICK+” award by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, and 2020 is no different. The combination of cameras, sensors, collision warnings, and the automatic emergency braking system drastically reduce the chances of potential accidents, increasing the longevity of the car.

The Final Word

The 2020 Volvo XC90 is an improvement on the company's already legendary longevity. In the car world, the average Volvo is expected to last 19.7 years--just about the longest stretch of any car maker in the world. With regular maintenance and care, you can expect your XC90 to last you 200,000 miles. 

In fact, Volvos are so long-lasting that there's a high-mileage club for owners that have been a few places. There are lots of people in the club, which offers membership only to those with 150,000 miles or more on their vehicle; and six of the club members actually have Volvos that have wracked up more than one million miles. 

For all of its history, Volvo has been consistently focusing on the development of newer technologies, ensuring more reliable and future-proof products. By guaranteeing the effective use of such features, they have not only improved durability but made a significant stride towards the future of the car industry, setting the standard for all competitors.
