Many felt that Volvo would not be able to top the very successful original XC90 when the second generation hit the roads in 2014, but once again the 4×4 world was taken back by this fantastic vehicle. It is in high-demand, it received exceptional reviews universally and it also won a handful of awards. The superb vehicle is now often compared to pioneering vehicles such as the Porsche Cayenne, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and the BMW X5 – fine company indeed.
The new XC90 features an attractive and distinctive design both inside and out. The seven-seater has a modern and stylish look with classy brushed metal inserts, a sleek and minimal dashboard, chrome detailing and a cool central touchscreen which allows you to easily control different features. The interior is also very spacious and comfortable, even when seven people are in the vehicle. There is plenty of room for storage, but the huge boot is an ideal place for luggage.
This 4×4 boasts amazing features, with a heavy focus on safety. This includes energy-absorbent seats, auto-breaking technology, low-speed self-driving and automatic parking. Other impressive features include climate control, sat-nav, air filtration, keyless entry and auto-dimming mirrors.
Available in 2.0-litre petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid, you will discover that fuel economy is excellent in the XC90 with the diesel version reaching nearly 50mpg in official tests. All versions come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox, the handling is easy and the car grips the road well and visibility is clear thanks to the high seat and large windows.
The suspension also allows for a smooth ride and particularly at high speeds. Not just this, but the new XC90 is extremely quiet with wind and engine noises kept to a minimum.
As a luxury and pioneering SUV, the new XC90 has a lofty price tag which may put some motorists off. By shopping at reputable 4×4 specialists, such as Saxton 4×4, you can find second-hand SUVs at affordable prices. When you purchase a high-quality vehicle like the new XC90, you know that it will not let you down and perform to a high standard for the foreseeable future.
Any 4×4 enthusiast will fall in love with the second generation XC90. Not many thought that Volvo could build on the success of its predecessor, but they proved the industry wrong with this exceptional vehicle that is perfect for any motorist.
