Meet the new Volvo XC90!
Volvo's 7-seater behemoth has actually been upgraded, and it has competitors like the Land Rover Discovery and Audi Q7 in its sights! But is it the clever choice? Let's find out …
For starters, the outside style hasn't changed much compared to the old model. Although that's not precisely a bad thing! Sure it's quite chunky, but what do you anticipate from a 7-seat SUV?! In either case, seeing a couple of more updates would have been great.
Take a step within, and it's a similar story! You'll find some brand-new extra-comfortable seats up front, along with a few updates such as a cordless charging pad, but otherwise, it's all quite comparable to the old XC90. There's a large portrait infotainment screen on the dash, but to be honest, it's all a bit old-fashioned now. At least the cabin is full of soft-touch, nice products.
Under the bonnet, there's very little to pick from, with all XC90s rolling up with a 2-litre 4-cylinder engine. The range-topper is the T8 plug-in hybrid we have here, with the engine integrated with an electric motor to provide 455hp.
Costs for the XC90 start from just north of ₤ 60,000 … However is it worth it? You'll need to stick to Mat and see on your own!
