The Volvo XC90 is one of the best large SUVs, combining a high-quality, spacious and versatile interior with plenty of kit and good driving manners

Trim: R DESIGN Pro

R-Design Pro adds the same additional luxuries as Momentum Pro, along with 22in wheels (which hurt ride comfort) and adaptive air suspension.

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 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.
