Drive it your way
The XC90 offers a choice of drive modes, for a driving experience to match the road ahead and your mood. Using the roller control, which is positioned between the front seats, you can switch between three settings that alter the characteristics of the engine, automatic gearbox, steering, brakes, stability control system and engine stop/start. Comfort sets the car up for maximum comfort, Dynamic sharpens the car’s responses and Eco prioritises efficiency. A fourth mode, Individual, allows you to combine characteristics to create your perfect mode.
The optional Four-C active chassis is an electronically controlled damping system that makes the XC90 even more adept at adapting to your needs. It makes up to 500 calculations per second to assess the current road conditions and driving style, and then adapts the responses of the suspension dampers to provide the optimum balance between comfort and control.
When you switch between the car’s drive modes, Four-C also adjusts the suspension characteristics. Comfort mode prioritises a smooth ride, while Dynamic mode sharpens the handling and car’s responses. Individual mode allows drivers to create their own combination of settings.
