Review

The Volvo XC60 looks and feels classy inside, plus it's also roomy and well equipped. In short, it's a fine choice – especially in entry-level Momentum trim. The Audi Q5 is a better all-rounder, though, while the BMW X3 and Porsche Macan are more fun to drive.

R-Design mainly offers sportier styling, bigger 19in alloy wheels compared with Momentum trim, and tinted windows.

With 247bhp, the B5 can sprint to 62mph in 6.6sec, so it's plenty brisk enough. You can have either front, or four wheel drive.
