Which used Volvo XC90 4x4 should I buy?

The 2.4-litre diesel models make most sense. Early ones have a power output of 163bhp, while those badged D5 produced 182bhp until January 2011 and 197bhp thereafter. However, all offer the sort of strong pulling power that’s really welcome in everyday driving.

The diesels are also a lot more efficient than the petrols, of course. But if you don’t mind bankrolling the oil companies during your XC90 ownership, there’s a wider choice of petrol models.
