Classy, elegant, stylish and sporty are not words you might normally associate with a 4x4 - and you would be exceedingly unlikely to use them all simultaneously to explain precisely the  identical 4x4. That's until the advent of 2017 Volvo Xc90.

Considering bringing the pragmatic off-roader to the family leisure market, car manufacturers have striven to style it and tailor it to supply  the broadest appeal, together with varying degrees of success. Some attempt a 4x4/MPV cross, while others opt for a more laidback SUV picture. There's been an attempt by a premium car manufacturer at trying to turn its large SUV to a slick sports coupe, with especially unsleek, nay, grotesque, results!

a lot of SUVs, VOLVO handles to keep, and even improve, the svelte lines and subtle shapes of its lightweight saloon and estate brethren.  In reality, if you lowered an XC60 to make it adopt a road-hugging position, then it would doubtless appear as a somewhat rakish property. psychological" styling.

Cabin Comfort

You wouldn't accuse the VOLVO's interior of becoming overdone. It is modem, fresh, stylish and, most importantly, simple. The all-anthracite lower-half cut of our test case might appear laborious and dull in a few cars, but with more to lift it compared to white contrast stitching and tastefully applied bright moldings, the Volvo handles an air of smart practicality. You'd expect nothing less from Swedish style.

The focal point is without doubt Volvo's now well known'floating' center console, in this instance having a glowing metallic finish.  It presents an array of logically-arranged and clearly-marked controllers - the human-shaped air-distribution picture being a particular case in point - which become almost instinctive at first glance. Above the CD slot resides the transparent sat-nav display, somewhat inset to reduce reflections from the window glass  located on exactly  identical|identical} plane as the instruments in which a rapid glance enables instantaneous visual clarity with no refocusing.

Gauges - just the two - convey the crucial details through annular analogue dials and (that phrase again)'drifting' pointers with electronic supplementary information exhibited in their centers|centres|facilities}. They've a chronographic look  for  them, but Volvo has thankfully resisted the generally Far-Eastern car manufacturers' tendency to decorate them with an excessive amount of bling and fancy lighting.

In authentic Volvo heritage, the seats are well-shaped, inviting and comfortable with those in front providing a practical variety of adjustment. The back compartment boasts reasonable if not commodious legroom, and the nicely contoured seat must provide three average-sized adults with comfy but comfortable traveling. The 40:20:40 split/fold seat gives a level load floor when the one-touch release levers are operated.

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

Driving Dynamics

Five-cylinder engines make a deal of sense, being as responsive as a'four' nevertheless almost as easy as a'six', even though the smoothness bit is less apparent with an oil burner.  Once heated up, though, the D5 is a pleasant enough petrol, delivering brisk performance in concert with the smooth-shifting six-speed Geartronic transmission, and which likewise has Sport mode and manual override.

Having initially thought the steering over-weighted, a couple miles later it seemed to feel quicker and more reactive. Speed-dependent support is available as an option, depending on model, with a user-selection facility.

In ordinary conditions the all-wheel drive system is front-biased, with torque re-apportioned through the computer-controlled hydraulic clutch as readily available grip changes. Volvo's Immediate Traction is designed to aid with standing starts. Ride is very firm (possibly as a result of BMW X3 having an XC60 benchmark) but gives car-like cornering and handling, though well-judged preliminary compliance carries the sting from many road imperfections.

The Volvo's City Safety helps prevent low-speed mishaps; Collision Warning with Car Brake and Adaptive Cruise Control with Distance Alert function at greater rates; BUS shows that your blind areas; DAC and LDW attempt to prevent you falling asleep or straight from lane; and IDIS delays telephone 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 Volvo's 90kg nose weight supplies a fantastic margin to accommodate most suitable caravans, and rectangular, straight-edged door cushions provide a much better platform than most for towing mirrors.

The XC60 proved to be brisk, turning in a 0-60mph time of 14.5 minutes despite first take-off being softened by the automatic gearbox. . Hill starts were equally trouble-free. The costume felt very unruffled in urban conditions, possibly as a result of confidence of City Safety, and with a 30-50mph time of 6.1 sec was seldom at risk of holding up other traffic. Normal auto mode dealt well, easily locating itself in the right equipment at the right time.

The steering might occasionally feel somewhat stranger from tight, twisty urban conditions but improved at higher rates to develop into smooth, responsive and precise, where the Volvo sensed in complete control through sequences of minor-road bends. On steep descents manual equipment selection may be helpful, but the powerful brakes with their various driver- support systems supplied reassurance.

In motorway speeds the XC60 tracked straight and true, though on a very windy test day some buffeting was experienced, as was a few enforced deviation offline out of large overtaking trucks and trainers.

Ride comfort in all conditions was business, though seldom uncomfortably so, and also the XC60 was able to damp out the caravan's bump reactions quite competently above all but the worst ruts.

Verdict

Think of the SUV as a tall, slinkyblonde Swede that will never have a blond moment, nevertheless is quite XC.
