Now in its second generation, the Volvo XC90 has met with unanimously positive reviews from the automotive press, with even Top Gear describing it as “almost perfect”.
The XC90 is the largest of the Swedish marque’s SUVs. It’s also a handsome-looking vehicle that possesses a luxurious and capacious interior. Speaking of which, this automobile’s cabin is extremely quiet, making it as easy as possible for conversations between as many as seven travellers to be held.
With an entry-level 2.0-litre 235bhp diesel engine installed, the XC90 delivers 480Nm of torque and 0-60mph in approximately 7.6 seconds. It also pulls as much as 2,700kg (braked). Nevertheless, this D5 unit still manages up to 42.8mpg. For even greater potency, look for models fitted with a 2.0-litre 320bhp petrol engine (T6), which produces a peak torque of 400Nm and 0-60mph in roughly 6.3 seconds.

The XC90’s front two rows effortlessly accommodate five adults, while the rearmost row is ideal for younger occupants. Access is made simple thanks to the combination of a five-door body and a middle row of seats that slide backwards and forwards. Furthermore, forward-compartment travellers are treated to electrically adjustable, lumbar-supporting and heated positions.
Other standard features include automatic two-zone climate control, all-around electric windows, a ten-speaker stereo and a nine-inch touchscreen satellite navigation system. As you would expect, this Volvo is supremely safe. It boasts a maximum five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating, after all. As well as all the driver aids and passive protective features you could wish for, high-strength boron steel has been used in the construction of the passenger compartment.
In addition to several useful stowage cubbies, the XC90 possesses a minimum-capacity 314-litre boot space. This rises to 967 litres (third row folded) – and a vast 1,868 litres (second and third rows folded).
