All- new Volvos don’t come round too of­ten, but when they do, they of­ten take a huge rev­o­lu­tion­ary step for­ward. Take the XC90, for ex­am­ple. The orig­i­nal proved to be a ma­jor break­through for the brand when it was launched in 2002, and re­mained hugely pop­u­lar for well over a decade. This new one brings the orig­i­nal’s for­mula of im­mense prac­ti­cal­ity and ease of use into today’s era. The clas­sic Volvo lines re­main, al­beit mod­ernised, and the XC90 cuts an im­pos­ing fig­ure with its styling. The in­te­rior, which has plenty of space to ac­com­mo­date seven, of­fers a clean- cut and min­i­mal­ist de­sign that is dis­tinc­tively Scan­di­na­vian, with a jumbo touch­screen of­fer­ing ac­cess to all the ma­jor con­trols, and but­tons are kept to a min­i­mum in the cabin. A range of en­gines, with diesel and petrol op­tions, is avail­able, and as with any Volvo, safety fea­tures are aplenty to keep you and your fam­ily safe on the roads.
