Classy, elegant, chic and sporty aren't words you might typically associate with a 4x4 - plus you'd be exceedingly unlikely to use them all at once to explain the  same 4x4. That is until the Coming of 2017 Volvo Xc90.

Considering bringing the pragmatic off-roader to the family leisure market, car manufacturers have striven to design it and tailor it to provide  the broadest appeal, with varying degrees of success. Some attempt a 4x4/MPV cross, but some opt for a more laidback SUV image. There's even been an attempt by a superior car manufacturer at trying to turn its big SUV to a slick sports coupe, using especially unsleek, nay, grotesque, results!

Unlike many SUVs, VOLVO manages to retain, and even improve, the svelte lines and subtle contours of its lightweight saloon and real estate brethren.  In reality, if you lowered an XC60 to create it adopt a road-hugging position, then it would definitely appear like a rather rakish property. psychological" styling.

Cabin Comfort

You would not accuse the VOLVO's inside of becoming overdone. It's modem, fresh, trendy and, most importantly, easy. The all-anthracite lower-half trim of our test case might seem laborious and dull in some cars, but using more to lift it than white contrast stitching and tastefully applied bright moldings, the Volvo manages an air of illusion that is smart. You would expect nothing less from Swedish style.

undoubtedly Volvo's now well known'floating' center console, in this case having a bright metallic finish.  It presents an array of logically-arranged and clearly-marked controllers - the human-shaped air-distribution graphic being a specific case in point - which become almost instinctive at first glance. Above this and the CD slot resides both the clear sat-nav display, slightly inset to decrease reflections in the window glass  located on the  same|identical} plane as the instruments in which a quick glimpse enables immediate visual clarity without refocusing.

Gauges - only the two - communicate the necessary details through annular analogue dials and (that phrase again)'drifting' pointers with digital supplementary information displayed in their centers|centres|facilities}. They have a chronographic appearance  for  them, but Volvo has happily resisted the generally Far-Eastern car manufacturers' tendency to beautify them with an excessive amount of bling and fancy illumination.

In authentic Volvo heritage, the chairs are well-shaped, supportive and comfortable using those in the front providing a useful variety of adjustment. The back compartment boasts sensible should not commodious legroom, and the well contoured seat should supply three average-sized adults with cozy but comfortable travel. chair provides a level load floor once the one-touch release levers are operated.

Zoned climate control gives a degree (actually, quite a few levels ) of heating/cooling flexibility and clean cabin atmosphere utilizing filtration and Volvo's sterile Zone Interior Package, an advanced air-purging system.

Driving Dynamics

motors create lots of sense, being as responsive as a'four' nevertheless almost as smooth as a'six','' although the smoothness bit is less apparent using an oil burner.  Once heated up, however, the D5 is a nice enough diesel, providing brisk performance in concert with the smooth-shifting six-speed Geartronic transmission, and which likewise includes Sport style and manual override.

Having initially thought the steering over-weighted, a few miles after it appeared to feel quicker and more reactive. Speed-dependent assistance is available as an alternative, depending on version, using a user-selection facility.

In ordinary conditions the all-wheel drive system is front-biased, using torque re-apportioned through the computer-controlled hydraulic clutch because readily available traction changes. Volvo's Instant Traction was made to help with standing starts. Ride is very firm (possibly as a result of BMW X3 being an XC60 benchmark) but provides car-like cornering and handling, even although well-judged initial compliance carries the bite out of many street imperfections.

The Volvo's City Safety helps avoid low-speed accidents; Collision Caution with Automobile Brake and Adaptive Cruise Control using Distance Alert function at greater speeds; BUS shows your blind areas; DAC and LDW attempt to stop you falling asleep or straying out of lane; and IDIS waits phone calls while you deal with complex driving situations. programs can be obtained along with Volvo's renowned safety design and technology assisted by Roll Stability Control, Hill Descent Control, Dynamic Stability and Traction Control, and Trailer Stability Assist.  Oh, and there is Park Assist...

Pulling Performance

The XC60 proved to be brisk, turning in a 0-60mph time of 14.5 minutes despite initial take-off being softened from the automated gearbox. . Hill starts were equally trouble-free. The outfit felt very unruffled in urban states, possibly as a result of assurance of City Safety, and using a 30-50mph time of 6.1 sec was rarely in danger of holding up other traffic. Normal car mode coped well, easily locating itself in the ideal gear at the ideal time.

The steering could sometimes feel a bit weighty in tight, twisty metropolitan states but improved at higher speeds to become smooth, responsive and precise, in which the Volvo sensed in complete control through sequences of minor-road bends. On steep descents manual gear selection could be helpful, however, the powerful brakes with their respective driver- assistance systems provided reassurance.

At motorway speeds the XC60 tracked straight and accurate, however on a really windy test day some buffeting was experienced, as was a enforced deviation offline from big overtaking trucks and coaches.

Ride comfort in all states was company, though rarely uncomfortably so, and the XC60 managed to damp out the caravan's bulge reactions quite competently above all but the worst ruts.
