Volvo boosts XC90 engine range with two new petrol units
10 December 2005

Volvo is bringing the V8-powered version of its XC90 flagship to the UK and Europe next July.

The Yamaha-sourced 4.4-litre 311bhp V8 was developed to give the seven-seater 4x4 extra appeal in the US market, but the Swedish marque has decided to develop right-hand-drive versions for sale in the UK.

An XC90 with Volvo’s forthcoming 3.2-litre in-line straight-six engine is also on the way at around the same time as the V8. The new unit will be shared with other members of Ford's Premier Auto Group, including the new Land Rover Freelander and Ford SAV, and innovative design allowing it to be mounted both longitudinally and transversely could see it appear in the next Jaguar S-type as well.

Our Verdict

Toyota Verso

Appealing to some, thanks to a fine balance of quality, space and refinement, but rarely thrilling to be in
