TAWA vice-president Kristin Shaw said that the organization’s members were impressed with the XC90 T8 Inscription at the state’s Truck Rodeo event. Volvo has constantly paid attention to safety and luxury which is evident from the use of upscale materials and features like the crystal gearshift. The 2020 Volvo XC90 is beautiful both outside and inside, Shaw said, adding that the SUV is strong enough to tackle tough terrains. 

The XC90, according to Volvo, is a luxurious and confident take on traditional Scandinavian design aesthetics. The car’s exterior is strong, and at the same time, sports balanced proportions. The interior is a great combination of beautiful materials, relaxed design, and the latest technology.
