2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence review

The 2017 Volvo XC90 Excellence is the most expensive and exclusive Volvo ever made – but is the best XC90 actually the best XC90? James takes a look at the 4-seat, 300kW, hybrid limo.  ...

Luxury SUV Comparison: eight high-rollers tested

When it comes to generously sized premium SUVs, the fun really begins at the $90k-$100k mark. Why? Because at this sweet spot, the choice of people-moving metal on offer is as diverse a melting pot as you’ll likely find at any other price point or broadly encompassing segment. To answer the question of which is the ideal buy, we've put eight of the best to the test...

2016 Volvo XC90 D5 Momentum Review

Read the article here. 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...

2016 Volvo XC90 Australian Launch Walkaround

Read the article here. To arrive in this world with a staggering level of responsibility and importance already placed on your being is something usually reserved for newborn royalty. The local launch of the 2016 Volvo XC90 should, then, be treated as the arrival of a new king, as the completely revised seven-seat family SUV is without a doubt the most important model in the Swedish brand’s 88-year history...

Audi Q7 3.0TDI v Volvo XC90 D5 Inscription : Comparison review

Two giant releases on the large-SUV radar this year, the Audi Q7 and Volvo XC90, seem intent on reshaping the seven-seater landscape with aligned vision and purpose. Surprising, perhaps, given how differently the Swedish and German brands have been traditionally perceived, but also how different this Big Boy pair are by all appearances viewed from 50 paces...

2020 Volvo XC90 facelift revealed, new mild hybrid drivetrains announced

The updated Volvo XC90 has been unveiled, and the exterior differences are difficult to spot. The grille insert is now concave and the highlights around the lower air intakes have been modified, but aside from that the only other differences relate to new alloy wheel designs and paint options...

2018 Volvo XC90 D5 Inscription review

After what seemed like an eternity, we’ve got our new car. Two years ago, I started the search for a replacement of our venerable 2007 XC90. The choices that were afforded to us just never lived up to what Lars had provided for us. Yes, the kids called the old Volvo Lars. Things like the Everest, Prado, Patrol and Discovery had been sampled – all coming up short as a replacement in more than one area...

2016 Volvo XC90 T8 R-Design Hybrid review

Let me start by getting my bias out on the table. I love Volvos. I grew up on Sydney's North Shore where Volvos are the family car of choice. I also learnt to drive in a 2002 Volvo V70XC and have since owned three Volvos before this one. This Volvo however, is different. Very different. It's the first of the new direction for Volvo as a genuine rival to the German luxury brands...

2016 Volvo Xc90 D5 2.0 Inscription Review

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...

2015 Volvo Xc90 T6 2.0 Inscription Review

The step up from the old XC90 is certainly appreciated. This car has brought the model up into the X5 & Q7 stables. It gives classy appearance and displays quality interior with so much information as to the vehicle operation on the big screen. It has been a real culture change to accept that you don't need the big V8 or V6 with the reassuring growl to get up and go...
