The outgoing Volvo XC90 was the biggest selling model for the Swedish brand in most crucial markets and this all-new model is the first to be wholly released under the ownership of new Chinese owner Geely.
Add to that the fact that the architecture on which the XC90 is based will drive future model development across the range, and it's fair to say the XC90 is a pretty important vehicle for Volvo.
Volvo reckons the T6 will be the volume seller, but this D5 Momentum is a perfect entry into the new XC90 range. It's got the coil spring suspensions system as well, so we can take a closer look at the ride quality without the high-tech adjustable airbag suspension.
The new XC90 is priced to be right in the middle of the battle with Audi Q7, BMW X5 and Mercedes Benz GLE. While the XC90 isn't the most dynamic or the most exciting SUV in the segment to drive, it's beautifully finished interior and family centric design ensure it's one the family buyer will need to take a good look at.
