The XC90 features Volvo's new design language with T-shaped "Thor’s Hammer" DRL lights. It features a 7-seater interior with soft leather, wood and diamond-cut controls for the start/stop button and volume control. The list of equipment includes an in-car control system with a tablet-like touch screen control console and a 1,400 W Bowers & Wilkins sound system with 19 speakers including an air-ventilated subwoofer.

Safety features include a run-off road protection package and auto brake at intersection capability. In the first, the vehicle detects that it is running off the road and tightens the front safety belts to keep the occupants in position. In the second, the car brakes automatically if the driver turns in front of an oncoming car.
