Volvo XC90 Review

For nearly a decade the Volvo XC90 has been a first-generation vehicle pitted against a series of sleek newer-generation rivals, but the big Swede remains a popular and worthy choice when it comes to seven-seat luxury SUVs.

A big SUV powered by a V8 engine. It must chew through fuel and kill the globe…right? Wrong. Volvo’s latest XC90 – the 4.4-litre V8 – is a mix of power and efficiency, striking the perfect balance.
