Launched in 2003, Volvo’s XC90 SUV fea­tured the Swedish brand’s first V8. Typ­i­cally, it is not your usual SUV V8. First, it is made by a mo­tor­cy­cle com­pany: Yamaha. And its cylin­ders are ar­ranged in a nar­row 60-de­gree for­ma­tion rather than the stan­dard 90 de­grees. It is a great en­gine, com­plete with a very un­volvo-like V8 crackle. The body and equip­ment sur­round­ing it are also im­pres­sive. The XC90 is ex­cel­lent sec­ond­hand value, with a one­owner 2006 ex­am­ple in Vic­to­ria ask­ing $41,990. cars­
