      2009 XC90 Executive V8

      Over the weekend conducted a test drive of this 2009 XC90 Executive V8.

      I call it and "Executive V8" based upon the descriptions I found within the 2009 Volvo XC90 product brochure.

      Interestingly enough, both the Seller and Carfax refer to this vehicle as being the R Design package.

      Can anyone confirm whether my conclusion is correct? It was a beautiful vehicle in great shape if anyone is looking for a nice V8.

      Regards,

      Tim Peters

      I'm thinking executive since it has the perforated and ventilated seats as well as wood inserts in the center console and of course the executive badge on the C-pillar.

      Could someone tell me what these controls are for though? One looks like it's for controlling the fans but the lower one? Massage seats? In that case I'd hands down say it's an executive.

      I think both models could have been had with this option! Executive has the alum mirror covers padded arm rests on the front door panels, black gauges, chrome on front grilles and rear tail lamps and an insert on the rear door c pillar same as the mirror covers and the 19" multi spoke wheels

      R-design would have a badge where the 'V8' one is on the front grille. R-Design has the 20" Cratus wheels, aluminum trim instead of wood, and 'r-design' logos in the seats. Also the seats have 2nd color inserts. What you have there is indeed an executive.

      I just learned something about my 2009 Xc90. Thanks.😊

      It was advertised as R-Design but it didn't quite fit the description. I've had it for about 2 years now.
