We test drove an XC90R and the XC70 T6, the T6 was buttery smooth, faster, and more refined. Completely outclassed the XC90. Initially the auto trans. was jerky at times and sometimes shifted sluggishly, but after 3 months, we didn't notice it at all, completely smooth. Mileage in the beginning averaged close to 13L/100km, but now is close to 10.5, after 17,000 Km's, and getting better. This is a very solidly built car, tough, comfortable, builds confidence.I can stand up after 9 hrs driving and feel no back pain! Great winter car, with full winter tires, confidently passed many lines of tailgaters on snow covered highway. Reliable, not one issue to date! AWD engages effortlessly, Ex. in snow
Turbo, this car is fast, and love that dual exhaust growl. Dynaudio stereo is awesome. 4C chassis, norm. soaks up the bumps, sport/adv. for fun. Active cruise control automatically brakes the car, great for rush hour traffic! The Most comfortable seats! 18" Minos wheels. Hideaway storage. AWD, wow!
Maintenance program should have been made available in Canada! Pirelli scorpion tires not the best for winter, (we have a set of Nokian winter tires, excellent)
