4 out of 5 stars

For You can seat seven in this roomy, safe and comfortable 4x4

Against It's pricey to buy and not as sharp to drive as a BMW X5

Verdict Very practical, posh family transport

Go for… 2.4 D5

Avoid… 4.4 V8

Volvo XC90 4x4
  • 1. Look underneath for signs of off-road abuse
  • 2. Check all round the car for parking damage, especially the front corners
  • 3. The cabin is solidly screwed together and provides seating for seven
  • 4. Servicing costs are about the same as for a BMW X5, but cheaper than on a Mercedes M-Class
