2018 Volvo XC90 Piles Pressure On Audi Q7!

By  | 

The latest Volvo XC90 T8 Excellence ticks all the right boxes for a great luxury SUV but this is with the exception of price. It appears that SUV-goers don’t like the fact that the XC90 T8 Excellence is more than double the price of the base XC90.

It is a huge price gap in between trims and this is probably the reason why the latest XC90 T8 Excellence is unable to hit full stride on the sales front.

Well, we are pleased to say that Volvo has realized the pricing mishap and they are now making the XC90 T8 Excellence cheaper to own. Volvo revealed that the 2018 XC90 T8 Excellence will be priced at about $80,000 thus making it $23,500 cheaper than before.

Volvo also pointed out that many dealers are offering rebates with the range-topping XC90 which means that the prices can go lower than the indicated MSRP.

Major reviewers have all graded the XC90 T8 Excellence better than the range-topping Audi Q7 hence the lower pricing for the SUV from Volvo will put the vehicle on the front foot over the competition.

It is worth noting that the top-of-the-line Q7 retails at around $70,000, which is not too far away from the XC90 T8 Excellence. With the revised pricing, the pressure will be on the Audi Q7 in the battle for sales.
