Volvo XC90 (2012 update)

Volvo XC90 body

Um… it’s the red one

5 Pros

  1. Jeremy Clarkson has owned three Volvo XC90’s. The reason he has bought so many? “It’s simple, it takes six kids to school in the morning”
  2. Surprisingly cheap – I expected it to be A$30k more expensive
  3. The interior is echo big
  4. Very clever packaging includes an inbuilt child booster seat and a useful split tailgate to help load things into the boot
  5. It’s old (the model has been around since 2002), but hopefully this means Volvo has had time to solve any issues

5 Cons

  1. The interior is starting to get a bit dated
  2. There have been some reliability problems related to the gearbox
  3. New model due soon
  4. Ferry like turning circle
  5. The XC90 is very drivable, but you would not call it sprightly

Concluding personality type: Hooded jumper: Fashionable and functional
