Mama D's Diary: Behind the Wheel of a 2018 Volvo XC90 T6 Momentum AWD in the Dallas Area

1000 × 562

Greetings everyone, Mama D here and I hope that you enjoyed the sun because we are supposed to get more rain in Texas again! This week I am driving a 2018 Volvo XC90 T6 Momentum AWD with a Crystal White Metallic exterior and Amber leather interior. This Volvo in our Carrollton lot comes with a 316 HP 295-lb-ft of torque 2.0 liter supercharged and turbocharged 4 cylinder engine…which might be a problem for Mama D!!

This XC90 is a great looking SUV sporting a sleek exterior with an elegant high quality interior and exceptional space for passengers and cargo. The thing Mama D has found with Volvos is that they come with a lot of great standard features, as does this one.

It actually has Pilot Assist, which is a self-driving system that will follow lane markings and other cars for short periods of time without any driver intervention. It does require some force on the steering wheel for long distances though…imagine that!!! Trust me, this was definitely not one of the options Mama D would be exploring while driving this vehicle…cause if I want to feel like I am on the Jetsons there are other ways to achieve that-lol!!!

Some of the options that come standard in this XC90 are adaptive cruise control, blind spot warning (one of Mama D’s favs) with rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights (to light up those dark country roads), panoramic moon roof (to gaze at the stars or better yet a meteor shower…and what better vehicle to take you to some dark, off road, deserted area for viewing), retractable side mirrors and dimming interior and exterior mirrors, 9 inch touch screen (Mama D is not going to lie people, this was a little tricky but you all know me), Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Those are a lot of great features to come standard on a vehicle and not have to pay extra for..wouldn’t you say!

Once on the road, Mama D was pleasantly surprised to find that this XC90 had plenty of get up and go!! It was comfortable, drove very smoothly and had lots of safety features families would enjoy. Mama D once owned a Volvo many, many moons ago and the main reason was because it was so safe and reliable because we lived in the desert.

Volvo sure has come a long way though with some of those features…Mama D isn’t a fan of feeling the steering wheel having a mind of its own…lol…it takes a little while to get used to!! This 2018 Volvo XC90 is really a great mid size luxury SUV that offers Dallas area drivers class, comfort, style and safety all in one. It has gotten very high reviews on Cars.com of 4.9 and 100% of drivers would recommend this car..Mama D would say it doesn’t get much better than that friends…does it?

This great XC90 has the Momentum Plus Package which includes Interior high level illumination w/illuminated door sills, dark frame birch wood inlays, headlight high pressure cleaning and active bending lights (ABL) and it also has upgraded paint.

eCarOne is offering this awesome vehicle for only $42,450 which Mama D thinks is a really great deal! So go by eCarOne - our luxury car dealership in the Dallas area to test drive this or another Volvo just like it and tell them Mama D sent you!

Until next time..happy and safe driving!
