It might be fair to assume that if you’re reading this Volvo XC90 review, it’s probably because you have many offspring and need a big car with plenty of seats to cart them all around in. After all, it was the spacious SUV proportions and seven usable seats that made the original XC90 – launched back in 2002 – such a rip-roaring success.
This current model is the second generation and it’s even bigger than the original, but is it still the SUV to go for? Well, it has many plus points, but there are some spectacularly good rivals to consider as well. Most notable of these would be the Audi Q7 and Land Rover Discovery, but the Porsche Cayenne and BMW X5 should be in the mix, too.
So, why not keep on reading and we’ll tell you all there is to know about the XC90 and, significantly, how it rates against such accomplished competition.
