Valcosmos's review of Volvo XC90

★★★★★

“When it`s a V8 it`s a different animal”

Written on: 23/06/2011 by Valcosmos (1 review written)

Out of all XC90`s V8 is the one to go. It is powerful, roomy, stylish, comfortable, maneuverable. Did I say stylish?

It is definitely not as sporty in handling as Infiniti FX35 or BMW X5 4.4l, but in return you get a more comfortable ride than X5, more room than in both of those, I mean really more room and the styling is on par if not better. Their AWD Haldex with instant traction system is definitely better than BMW`s, and the safety features are the best in class.

Overall I`m very satisfied with this car. Having come from a Lexus RX300 I greatly feel an upgrade in all departments except one-fuel economy. But then again, what would you expect from a V8? However on a positive note having a 6-gear automatic transmission definitely helps. Just to add to the reliability-both the engine and transmission are made in Japan.
