After I ordered an '07 3.2, I spent a week in Germany driving a '07 V8 at high speeds. I was afraid the 3.2 might be a let-down, but it has not been. The six is completely adequate; quick enough off the line and the passing lane. Shift points match the engine well at all speeds. The XC90 is nimble for a two ton vehicle. Very comfortable seats, well designed interior, quality materials throughout. A very satisfying purchase.
Driving comfort, smooth and responsive driveline, fit and finish.
Some controls on steering stalk not intuitively marked.
