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 Pro

Inscription Pro follows the theme of adding extra luxuries on top of what you get with regular Inscription trim. Those extras include ventilated and massaging front seats, adaptive air suspension and 21in alloy wheels.

Engine: 2.0 T8 Recharge PHEV

The T8 hybrid’s combination of a petrol engine and electric motor makes it properly quick and easily the fastest XC90 of the lot, racing from 0-62mph in just 5.8sec. It shoots away from a standstill with some urgency and follows up with enough surge for easy overtaking at faster speeds. It also has a similar electric-only range to other plug-in hybrid rivals, such as the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid and Range Rover Sport P400e
