It's comfortable and quiet. You can get 7 people in it. Airbags will coccon your loved ones in a bed of safety in the event of a crash

Cons

Lame performance, goes through a lot of fuel

If You Don't Care About Performance And You Have A Large Family Who You Want To Be Safe, This Is Goo — If you value performance, then this is not the car for you. The 2.5T is a small engine for something so big, so performance is nothing to write home about. It was not designed to be a performance car. 0-60 mph takes 11 seconds or so. Around corners, it rolls heavily and throttle will result in serious understeer. The steering is as vague as it gets. The first half an inch or so of steering in either direction from center does nothing at all. However, if performance is not your top priority, then this is an excellent car in terms of practicality and comfort. The ride is quite soft. The seats are fairly comfortable. There isn't too much road or tire noise. It can seat 7 people, though the two seats in the very back have little legroom. Those are best left for the children. With the seats folded down, there is plenty of room for cargo, enough for something like a small couch. The split tailgate is a nice touch and makes loading heavy items easier.

Excellent — Love the car,just don't need all the space anymore. This suv is a well built vehicle with lots of power. the great thing is it only burns regular gas. It is clean inside and out. Rides better and is quieter than my hubby's Lexus.

Good Family Car — 6cd changer, power seats, 2.5l turbocharged engine, and a lot of safety features make this a great family car. If need to load, huge cargo area by folding third row, second row, and even passenger side front seat. Incredible sound system, really stable suv

Great Car — Love the car. We have had 3 volvos in the past and consider them to be the safest car on the road. With car gurus I was able to find this auto at a price that was very fair. The dealership was wonderful and very professional. I would recomend Orlando Landrover to anyone buying a car.

Space and winter qualities

Cons

Diesel consumption and tired engine

Xc90 D5 — The D5 was to small for this heavy car. But it was a dream in the winter and long-journeys. The build quality was not very good, other Volvo models seems to have better quality! Maybe a T6 engine would fit the car better?
