2019 Volvo XC90 R-Design: Farewelling our long-termer

The Volvo XC90 is fast becoming a bit of an oldie in the large luxury SUV segment, but we think it's still a goodie.

2019 Volvo XC90 long-term review: Introduction

Our latest long-termer is the Volvo XC90, which will really earn its chops when it comes to wrangling the family and work duties over the weekdays and weekends. We’ll be putting the XC90 into a few different sets of hands to see what our thoughts are, and see how it really performs.

2019 Volvo XC90 long-termer, first impressions: Interview with Tamsyn Sykes

From time to time at CarAdvice, we’ll invite friends and family to get behind the wheel and tell us how the car performs in their world. (Indeed, that's the mission of our newly launched Community Approved Tester program!) We call it, First Impressions. Tamsyn Sykes, wife to CarAdvice Commercial Director Benn, lives with the Volvo XC90 and shares her initial thoughts on the car...

Range Review: Volvo XC40, XC60, XC90

No Russian-doll design approach here – or ‘bricks’; just three SUVs sharing obvious design DNA while also forging their own distinct styling paths. Bringing these three Volvos together simply reinforces our views from both individual tests and comparisons: this is a formidable line-up with impressive consistency of quality, whether you’re looking at design, materials, safety, or engineering...

2021 Volvo XC90 v Kia Sorento comparison

Making the leap from mainstream to premium is not a simple task. Volvo managed it with the XC90, but is Kia on the right track with the new Sorento? We line them up to see which is the better category-crossing prestige SUV.

Range Review: 2019 Volvo XC40, XC60, XC90

Volvo Cars registered record sales in 2018, making it Australia’s fastest-growing luxury brand. That was with a showroom comprising 10 vehicles, yet the Swedish brand expects to sell more models in 2019 with just four vehicles after a major culling process. Gone from local (though not most overseas) showrooms are the S90 large sedan, V40 hatchback and its higher-riding twin, the V40 Cross Country...

Volvo XC90 Owner Reviews

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...
