Great use of space. Either 7 people or lots of cargo space. I live in Colorado and the turbo provides excellent power for high altitude driving. Had some friends compare a Lexus rx with an xc90 on I-70 in the high winds (40-50 mph and gusty) that we sometimes have on the front range, and they said the xc90 was vastly superior. Don't know about the Lexus but my xc90 handles these winds like no other car I've ever driven.
use of space, great ride, safety, good power at high altitude
poor visibility when backing, 3rd row seating costs a little leg room on the 2nd row (it's a laws of physics thing),gas mileage (I'll pay the extra $30 a month it costs in gas for this great car)
