First XC90 was 2003 T6. Gas hog and poor performance. Traded it in on a 2006 V8 AWD, used, dealer special. Traded that in for a 2007 V8 AWD, new, because I wanted a Nav system and I love the new Titanium Metallic Grey color with black interior. 2007 best of the lot and a Wednesday car built. Powerful,smooth, comfortable, great sound system, excellent visabiltiy, fun to drive and solid as a tank. 6200 miles and no problems. Truly a world class vehicle. Looked at a Mercedes M, BMWx5, MDX and Volvo was the best of the group. Most power and most cargo room. You can spend a lot more money and you can't buy a much better vehicle.
V8 engine. Premium sound system. All seats comfortable including the 3rd row. Excellent visability and solid road handling.
Better gas mileage would be a plus. I've got a lead foot and am only averaging about 14.5 mpg combined. Not bad for a vehicle this size and weight.
