The XC90 is very smooth for such a large car. There’s a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine which doesn’t sound very big for a car this size, but it’s supercharged and turbocharged, so there is plenty of power.
It got up hills quickly and I also took it on a few highway drives this week so can vouch for the ease of driving long distances. I felt confident overtaking and didn’t have any issues.
It also handles well and the steering is great to turn, so attempting even tight parks was possible, despite the size. It has a high definition reverse parking camera and you can also switch views to get a variety of angles - reverse, left, right, front and 360-degree view so you can see everything around the car, too.
