XC90 T6 AWD vs. XC90 V8 AWD
By DENNIS on
Vehicle2006 Volvo XC90 V8 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewPurchased a 2003 XC90 T6 new. Traded it in for a XC90 V8 in 2006. Totally different vehicle. Engine powerful and quiet. No comparison with the T6. T6 noisy, rough running and a gas hog. V8 smooth as silk and much better MPG. Also, the T6 was a five passenger, the V8 a 7. The V8 rides much smoother because of the self leveling rear. All in all a world class vehicle with a top IIHS safety rating. You can spend a lot more money on an SUV and I don't think you can buy a much better vehicle. Dollar for dollar an excellent investment.
Best FeaturesExcellent visibility; powerful and responsive V8; smooth quiet ride; killer 6 disc 300+watts 12 speaker surround sound system; top IIHS safety rating.
Worst FeaturesSide steps to reach roof racks. Full size spare tire. Sun visor extensions.
