The Perfect Summer Ride

Although summer is slowly fading away, I can still feel the warm wind in my hair as I cruised around in the luxurious and sleek Volvo XC90! Windows down, sunroof open, and the radio blasting; sweet summer perfection!

I had the pleasure of test-driving the XC90 from Riley Volvo Cars Stamford for a weekend during the summer, and I loved every minute of it! I used the car to do all things summery (ice cream at Saugatuck Sweets, a beach dinner, pool time, a trip to the Farmer’s Market, and even a fun date night with my husband), and I did it all in style!

Words that immediately come to mind are dependable, luxury, adventure, and safety. From the moment I pulled onto I-95 North in the pouring rain during rush hour to bopping around town for errands, I found the XC90 to be incredibly reliable and comfortable.

As my children continue to grow, our needs as a family change. I need more room for carpools, sports gear, and device chargers! However, one thing has always remained the same. We need a safe and reliable car.

Some of my favorite features were the cooling and heated seats, parking assistance, sunroof, and lane-keeping aid. I also found the seatbelt alarm, camera system, and traveling speed on the window to be super helpful. The trunk room was generous; it fit all our beach and pool gear just fine! 

Although car seats are no longer a huge concern for me, it is important to note that the Volvo XC90 is car seat friendly! The latch system was available in the second row of seats, and the anchor was available on all four rear seats. I also loved the navigation system, hands-free liftgate, and blind-spot monitor. These features contributed to me feeling safe and secure while driving my family around.

Volvo considers everything; the technology is top-notch, the design is sleek, the safety features are incredibly thoughtful, and environmentally the car can help you reduce your carbon footprint!

The overall attention to detail is worth noting! Not to mention, it is a very striking and sexy-looking car! The car is also so much FUN! I am declaring it the #1 summer fun car of the season!
