I have to admit I was a little underwhelmed when the XC90 was delivered to The Milestone Hotel in London today. The Milestone was number one London hotel on Trip Advisor last year and I’d enjoyed 24 hours of style and refinement. I was rather hoping it would continue.
Even the doorman was excited about the Volvo’s arrival. But the shape – is it just me or does the XC90 just look like the old model with a bigger ‘happier’ front grille?
There’s little to inspire you from the rear or side, so it’s just the front three-quarter angle that really catches the eye. Those narrow headlights and upright grille are pretty slick.
At least on the inside it’s more inspiring. That enormous media screen, minimalist dashboard and shapely seats really cut the mustard. More tomorrow…
