Exceptional 2017 XC90 SUV continues to drive U.S. sales

Despite an overall market correction for new car sales in the U.S. Swedish maker Volvo recorded a sales uptick for April with its premium 3-row SUV leading the charge. The exceptional, well received 2017 XC90 SUV continues to drive sales for Volvo car.

By automotive manufacturing volume standards, Volvo car is as close as one comes these days to a boutique premium car manufacturer, and it shows in every car and light truck that Volvo produces. For April, Volvo sales returned to the plus side with the stellar 2017 SC90 3-row SUV leading in showroom sales nation wide. I spent some seat time behind the wheel of 2017 XC90 T6 Inscription on the streets of los Angeles, and walked away a bit more than impressed.

Although Volvo car does not break out individual car variant sales figures, I’m confident that the availability of the exceptional, high-torque output and fuel efficient XC90 T8 Inscription plug-in sport hybrid brings clients into the showroom.2017_Volvo_XC90_T8_Inscription_McCants

In other regions of the globe, the Volvo S90 4-door sedan and V90 sport wagon is selling well. I believe these offerings to be an exceptional purchase option for discerning car buyers not requiring the truck-like attributes of a crossover or SUV. Read my week in seat behind the wheel of Volvo S90.
