Review

The Volvo XC90 is a fine luxury SUV, combining a high quality, spacious and versatile interior with plenty of kit and top-notch safety credentials. The Audi Q7 is still a better overall package, though, and don't rule out the Land Rover Defender if you're happy with something slightly more rugged.

get the best price

Adds larger 20in alloy wheels and various sporty design touches over Momentum trim. However, unless you really love the looks, R-Design doesn’t really make much financial sense. We’d stick with Momentum.

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.
