Fuel-Efficient Driving in the Volvo XC90

Whoever said that all SUVs are gas-guzzlers clearly hasn't given the new Volvo XC90 a test drive. This admired luxury SUV is designed to be efficient without sacrificing power. It has some great features to help you get the most out of your fuel.

There are a number of great turbocharged engines to choose from. All of them have Start/Stop technology. This feature aims to reduce fuel waste whenever you're stuck in traffic or stopped at a long intersection light. When you're stopped, the engine shuts off entirely. However, cabin operations, such as the air conditioner and infotainment system, keep running. The engine will automatically turn back on as soon as you hit the gas pedal.

If you get a model with the Four-C active chassis system, you can improve fuel efficiency even further. Available for many builds at Volvo Cars Marin in Corte Madera, CA, this system allows you to switch into ECO driving mode. It lowers the body of the car for enhanced aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.
