Parents has named the 2022 Volvo XC90 Recharge plug-in hybrid SUV as one of the Best Family Cars of 2022. This follows the Volvo XC90 being selected as the top choice under the luxury-tech category as part of their list of Best Family Cars of 2021.
Experts at Parents, the leading source for busy millennial moms and dads, along with A Girl’s Guide to Cars, thoroughly tested over 50 new car models, including minivans, three-row SUVS, two-row SUVs, and sedans, to determine this year’s list of honorees.
Winners were recognized based on criteria including high-tech performance, safety and convenience features across multiple categories. The 25 models included in the Best Family Cars of 2022 list passed test drive standards, received high ratings from the national Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, car seat compatibility assessments and were designated as safe and efficient for all families for years to come.
The seven-passenger XC90 Recharge, identified as the best three-row ECO SUV, was spotlighted for its premium safety features, standard AWD, and powerful four-cylinder turbo engine. The team at Parents nodded to the vehicle’s instant acceleration, built-in booster seat option and LATCH systems on the outboard seats, as well as its luxurious design.
The 2022 XC90 Recharge is powered by Volvo Cars’ latest and most efficient plug-in hybrid electric powertrain, which delivers high-power, smooth propulsion and outstanding drivability. With a total range of 540 miles, it can travel up to 35 miles on a single charge in Pure electric mode.
All XC90 Recharge models are equipped with a powerful rear electric motor that improves AWD capabilities while optimizing driving in slippery conditions. As the leading authority in safety, the XC90 Recharge has advanced features such as intelligent safety assistance technology, four cameras providing a 360-degree view of its surroundings, and our blind spot information system (BLIS), making it a perfect choice for any family.
