After an exhaustive look at a range of cars from the 4 Runner to the Range Rover Sport we settled on the XC90 and I think we got what we expected. An ok vehicle that has an appealing look but it's not flashy, and the interior is nice but creature comfort is lacking. What sold us was the relatively decent price for the number of features and the 5 yrs of free maintenance. We also like the spacious interior and the 3rd row seats are nice to have if needed and space is not compromised, although the 2nd row is a little tighter than some competitors. I'm 6' but could still sit there comfortably. This SUV will be a fill in for a few yrs until something in this $ range gets us excited.
Plenty of room. BLIS feature is very handy. 5 yrs free maintenance. Saftey record.
The center arm rest in the front is too far back and doesn't slide forward so it's hard to rest arm comfortably. NAV and backup camera are very disappointing, which is probably why they don't advertise either much. They're add ons and work as such. Would not waste my money on these if done again.
