Two months in and it has been an amazing car so far. Unbelievably quiet and performs very well around town and on the highway. Plenty of grip and we have just come back from 400km in the country, much of gravel roads which it stuck to like glue.
The systems are easy to work and access though you need to remember to keep your eyes on the road and not get to wrapped up in them. I look forward to a hybrid version. The touch screen is fantastic and you find your way around very easily and the sat nav works well and can be moved between screens, very handy. Hands free connectivity works well also and very easy to use.
This is by far the best car I have ever owned, I hope I continue to feel this way after 3 years of ownership, so good so far...
A great car for a family with easy access to the seven seats which are very comfortable and there is plenty of space for all the crew. We have already done some long distance travel which is done in complete comfort and silence, except for the kids. Vision is good and access to the back is easy, and it holds a lot of gear. The accessories seem to be of very high quality and you pay accordingly, but you pay for what you get. We looked at other brands but kept coming back to the XC90 and my wife is very happy with it.
