A Volvo that turns heads??
By rocco on
2011 Volvo XC90 3.2 R-Design 4dr SUV (3.2L 6cyl 6A)
I've just owned the XC90 R-Design for a bit over a week, so I can not speak to its durability or reliability, but I can say that this is one of the best looking, most comfortable, spacious, versatile and well designed SUV's/crossovers on the market. I looked at EVERYTHING in the segment before deciding on the Volvo for offering what is, in my opinion, the most attractive package at a price that can't be touched by BMW, MB, Lexus, Acura. I am a loyal BMW owner and have been extremely pleasantly surprised by Volvo's offering. While the XC90 is an aging design, the R-Design breathes new life into it.
Aggressive good looks, high-quality interior materials, excellent (upgraded) sound system, versatile cargo space/3rd row, two-toned leather, pleasant engine growl,
side-tilting mirrors when in reverse, smaller key fob, push-button start, central "command" to control comfort features, up HP and torque slightly
