Review

The Volvo XC90 is one of the best luxury SUVs on the market, combining a high quality, spacious and versatile interior with plenty of kit and top-notch safety. The Audi Q7 is still a better overall package, though.

Trim: Inscription

Benefits from softer Nappa leather, different 20in alloy wheels to R-Design trim, an electrically adjustable passenger seat and more illumination throughout the interior. We think there’s more sense in sticking to Momentum trim.

Engine: 2.0 T5 [250]

The entry-level petrol doesn't use a supercharger like the more powerful T6, but it is turbocharged. It has perfectly adequate performance for most situations (it'll hit 0-62mph in a claimed 7.9sec), but you do need to work it quite hard to realise that performance. It is pretty refined when revved, though, but while it'll reach 30mpg driven gently on the motorway, you'll struggle to hit 25mpg around town.
