Which car to choose for cruising to the course? Worldwide Golf puts the 2018 Volvo XC90 through its paces with some rigorous testing. 

 

Distance
500km+ on a full tank of fuel – if you fancy a road trip from the UAE to play in Muscat one weekend you can get the whole way there in one shot.
  • 7.7 litres/100km average fuel consumption.
  • Drive-E engine technology combines performance and efficiency with low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

Carry
Room for a 4-ball plus a few caddies.
How many sets of golf clubs fit in the boot? Four comfortably.
  • 7 seats.
  • 1886 litres of cargo space.
  • Rear seats fold into the vehicle floor creating bags of storage.
Speed
  • T6 AWD engine, 2.0L four-cylinder supercharged and turbocharged.
  • 310 hp / max speed 230 km/h.
  • 8 speed Geartronic transmission and all-wheel drive.

Range
Minimalist but luxurious, as usual Scandinavian design doesn’t disappoint.
  • Three distinct model types – Momentum, R-Design and Inscription.
Course mapping
The XC90 has us covered for staying out of the rough.
  • Sensus Navigation displays high-resolution map guidance on the dashboard and centre touch screen.
  • Head-up display projects vital driver information to appear as if hovering beyond the windscreen.
Entertainment
All the amplification you need for your pre-round playlist, or passengers can stream Worldwide Golf’s instructional videos through the onboard Wi-Fi.
  • Bowers & Wilkins 19-speaker audio system for concert-quality sound.
  • Sensus Connect provides in-car wifi and plays music direct from a device or via streaming.

 

Play it safe
The UAE’s roads can be as treacherous as the 8th at Emirates.  Safety innovators with a vision “that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020”, we’d happily brave the highways in a Volvo.
‘IntelliSafe’ technologies help prevent accidents and protect in a collision.
  • City Safety collision avoidance technology – vehicle, pedestrian and cyclist detection, autobrake at intersections.
  • Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Run-off road Mitigation correct steering if the car drifts across lanes or off the road accidentally.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control and Pilot Assist help keep speed consistent and a safe distance from other vehicles.
  • BLIS™ (Blind Spot Information System) technology detects vehicles moving alongside.
  • Cross Traffic Alert spots approaching vehicles when reversing out of a space.
  • 360° Camera provides a bird’s eye view of the area surrounding the car.
  • Park Assist Pilot parks the car for you, even in a tight spot.
