      This new interface still needs some work IMHO and it all revolves on a better faster and more reliable memory card or intel chip or something
      I had a 2017 V60 R Design Platinum, traded it for the new V90 Cross Country, and after two months traded it back to the V60 (was lucky enough it had not sold) all because of this interface. Some of the things I experienced where:
      1. Back up camera would work 60% of the time, many times it would not come up at all or come up way after i had already shifted gears to drive
      2. Cross traffic sensors, front and rear! Would start mysteriously going off for example when i was stopped at a red traffic light and nothing or no one was near me or approaching the vehicle
      3. Telephone calls were continuously dropped
      4. Streaming music via Bluetooth from my phone produced weak sound, I had to dust off my old iPod and physically connect it to the USB port inside the console to enjoy good sound

      I should add, i do believe in a couple more years they will refine this system and then all new Volvos will be amazing perfect cars, in the meantime i will enjoy the V60 😏

      I bought one of these for my wife in 2017. In 36k miles I've had to repair under warranty the following: 2 headlights due to moisture, all brake pads and rotors on three separate occasions (soon to be 4 times as the issue persists), wiper blade control lever, hvac vent cleaning for mold/smell, hood latch under the dashboard and I know I'm forgetting a few other things. I'll edit this post when I check my records, but my point is that this new xc90 has severe flaws in its components and I'll be getting rid of it as soon as warranty expires. Not sure if I got a lemon or some early model/generation woes but I've never owned a brand new vehicle that has spent at least 100 days at the dealership for warranty repairs. Oh and volvo corporate, when contacted, said that my xc90 service history is not atypical from other owners and that they can't help me with anything such as a customer trade in assistance so that we can move on to a more reliable Volvo. Although we love the design of Volvo I think this will be our last one.

      5 stars video, but I am still not sold on this "tablet" thing. XC90, Q7 or Touareg? The best vehicles would be one with the X90 Exterior, Q7 Technology and Touareg dashboard.

      Looks like very little has changed in the menu systems since the previous version. My understanding is the firmware has been updated and is less prone to crashing... is this true? I tested a XC60 T8 3 months ago. My major concern (and my wife) was adjusting the temperature while driving. Salesman shown us how to do it before we went for a drive. When we tried it on the move, the system froze TWICE. Needless to say, we did not order the car. I love to XC60/90, but I feel (like many, many others), that climate should be buttons/knobs - like Lexus/Mercedes are still doing.

      in my '17 V90, I just tell the car to change or set the temperatures. No need to take eyes off road. This also works for the seat and steering wheel heaters.

      While I haven't had the privilege to live with any of the new 2019 Volvo's, I can say that the system was much more stable in our 6 hours with an XC60/90. The hardware is more power to help ward off as many performance issues. Thanks for watching!

      At the end of the video you mentioned the Sensus Connect is $20/month? Can you elaborate? Are you saying if you don't pay the extra $20/month, you won't have access to many Sensus Connect features, or just the Wifi Hotspot? Thanks for the video!

      I own this New Volvo XC90 and love it! Nicest car I’ll ever own which will last forever. If you’re in the market for a luxury SUV AWD test drive this one and you’ll see why it’s the safest vehicle on the road!!

      It also has lane keep assist to stop you veering into oncoming traffic. Or lane departure warning. If you still need more assistance, you should probably just hand in your licence and stay off the road

      Not sure auto-braking when you veer into a head on tractor trailer is going to help all that much. Will it smartly drive you into the ditch to avoid the head on collision?

      Very helpful review to me as I am considering purchase of a 2019 Volvo. Have you confirmed that the auto start-start setting is “latched” and does not reset to the “on” position upon the next startup of the car?

      For MY19 start/stop, once deactivated, never returns to 'enabled' until you re engage the feature, forever. This is independent of 'Individual' drive mode. Older Volvo cars cannot be updated, due to EPA regulations.
