The interior is a little tight with small amount of shoulder room. Same for cargo area, deep but not wide. Standard audio system really poor. Has no bass sound and cannot be upgraded without a huge expense. Recommend you don't even consider buying it without the AWD.
Nice looking SUV.
Wider stance. Improve the basic sound system and make AWD standard. Improve the GPS system which is extremely awkward to use. DVD system needs to also feed into car speakers, not just headphones.
Just bought the XC90. Last car was the Acura MDX. Really enjoying the Volvo but do miss some of the nooks and crannies of the MDX for eye glasses, cell phones, loose change etc. Would also say the Acura had more of a luxurious feel on the inside. But, putting those things aside, the Volvo drives like a dream, definitely a tighter ride and handles better than the MDX and the interior is still very very nice.
Love the look and the comfortable drive. First vehicle for me with dual climate control and love it - no more arguing with spouse over interior temperature!
More storage spots for eyeglasses, loose change, cell phones etc. Make the 2nd row booster seat an option. It is hard as rock and not very comfortable for adult passengers. Compass should be an automatic feature.
It's the best SUV I've ever driven, even better than the new X5 and Cayenne and you can get it for a lot less money. In addition is safer and looks better. Best decision I've made so far regarding a car buy.
2007 Volvo XC90 V8 Sport 4dr SUV AWD (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
I love this car!! Tested the 2007 X5 V8, MB GL450 and the Audi Q7. This one had the best performance for the price. Handles like a dream and has more than adequate power. I'm not sure what a previous poster meant about not having auto locking and a compass. I have both. The auto lock is turned off from the factory, you just turn it on as per page 108 of the manual. The compass is on my rear view mirror. Test this one before you buy anything.
