I am delighted with my V90 Inscription, it is high spec and a delight to drive. I am still discovering knobs and buttons! Nippy when required and still returns 44 mpg. Such a good looking car too.
I bought the Volvo V90 D5 estate as my previous V40 CC T5, which I was very happy with, was too small for my current needs due to needing to transport my very elderly father. The V90 provides huge rear seat space and good boot space. Like my V40, it has the best seats on the market, possibly slightly better than the excellent V40 seats and better than my Lexus - I have psoriatic arthritis and multiple disc problems so seat comfort and ease of access are a huge priority for me. Performance of the D5 is very good, even at the side of the previous T5, braking is excellent and the quality of handling in dynamic mode using the air suspension is a revelation given the size of the car. Real world fuel economy, now run in, averages just under 40mpg. Being a techie 50 something I really love the IT and the sound system. Set up was so easy I could not believe I had done it, an improvement on the old V40 which I found fiddly. Doves Volvo provided their usual excellent service throughout my ownership of the old V40 and with the new V90. Well done Nigel who handled both of my Volvo purchases. My only complaint is that I may need to buy a new house, as even with all the Volvo driving assistance, I can only just fit it, at 4.936m, on my rather short 5m driveway. To be fair, they did let me try out fitting a V90 on my drive before buying.
First, may I say what outstanding service my wife and I received from the staff at Doves Volvo Horsham; nothing was too much trouble and the handover by Nigel was as detailed and patient as anyone could wish for. As far as the car is concerned, after only a short time we have nothing but praise about the comfort and refinement levels, although this was expected as we have had other Volvos. From a driving point of view, I like the ACC/CC, but am not keen on the LKA and have switched this off as I find it irritating and not necessary for my style of driving. Our next trip will be away with the caravan and this will be a much more stringent test.
Delighted with the make-over Volvo has given to its large Estate car. The new V90 is well specified and has a good MPG. Safety is still a key - and welcome - consideration. This car pushes the boundaries forward and is well worth a test drive.
