When my old college car finally bit the dust a few years back I searched high and low to find a vehicle that would both accommodate my growing family and I'd still look good driving (read: no minivans please!). After some searching around I finally test drove the Volvo XC90 3.2L R-design and I was hooked. In typical European style this mid-size SUV manages to incorporate all the safety features and space without compromising the design. From the outside its a smoother version of the standard SUV design, so I was shocked when I peeked inside and saw a third row of seats! The interior doesn't lack for style either and includes sophisticated looked seats (including an integrated child seat), a nice dashboard with angular instrumentation, trim that looks expensive, and all the modern conveniences such as an mp3 player input and an optional dvd player. As far as drive-ability goes I'd say this is a good all weather, all season vehicle. If you want more power there's even a V8 version, although I'm not sure what the gas mileage is for the V8. The standard 3.2 engine design average 20 miles per gallon for highway driving, so its not great, but typical for a mid-sized SUV.
