If you’re not quite convinced of Volvo’s luxury credentials yet, maybe the new ultra-luxury Volvo XC90 Excellence will do the trick. To go along with its sumptuous cabin and gussied-up exterior, this new range-topping SUV certainly carries a flagship-worthy price: $105,895. That makes it the first-ever Volvo to ever crash through the six-figure price ceiling.

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Excellence EditionIf the cost alone doesn’t change your mind, this special XC90’s interior appointments just might. To create the Excellence, Volvo deleted the XC90’s third-row seats and installed two throne-like chairs (with heating, cooling, and massage functions) where the second-row bench used to be. Footrests, folding tray tables, heated and cooled cupholders, and even a refrigerator in the center console create a rear-seat environment that tops most first-class airplane seats, while all passengers enjoy a quieter ride thanks to increased sound-deadening and noise-canceling Pirelli tires. All the equipment and trim from the XC90 Inscription model carries over, including open-pore wood and Nappa leather, with the optional 20-speaker Bowers & Wilkins sound system also included here.

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 Excellence EditionWhen this limited-run XC90 goes on sale this summer, its only real competitor in the U.S. will be the long-wheelbase version of the Range Rover, which carries a starting price of $109,190. The XC90 Excellence’s standard T8 plug-in hybrid drivetrain will make a point of differentiation from the Range Rover and its thirsty 5.0-liter supercharged V-8. The XC90 Excellence also offers a subtle exterior look, with only extra bits of chrome trim and a few “Excellence” badges separating it from the XC90 T8 Inscription (which starts at $72,595). Even when Volvo forges new territory, it doesn’t lose its Swedish sensibilities.
