Frequently Asked Questions for the New Volvo XC90

Does the Volvo XC90 require premium gas?

Volvo recommends premium, 91 unleaded octane or higher to optimize the XC90's performance. However, the XC90 can run on regular 87 unleaded octane without affecting the T5 engine reliability. It's also safe to use fuel containing up to 10% Ethanol in your XC90.

Keep in mind that if you have a T6 engine equipped, the XC90 is considered equipped with a high-performance engine and requires premium fuel, 91 unleaded octane or higher. If you are still unsure what type of gas works best for your XC90, there is always the option of speaking with our service team or checking the owner's manual.

Does the Volvo XC90 have Apple CarPlay®?

The XC90 offers both standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. These features pair with the Sensus Connect to provide a similar interface to what you would find on your phone. The Sensus Touchscreen offers a similar interface to a smartphone, so you will be able to swipe and pinch-zoom to interact with key apps and features.

The smartphone integration allows you to access your phones navigation, communication, and audio through the multimedia system. The voice control, wireless connectivity, and steering wheel commands allow you to keep your focus on the road while accessing key functions.
