retailing in Singapore for S$300k.  I love the car but not the price.......at such price, it is on a bumpy road to compete with the bmw x7 where buyers with such budget are generally badge conscious to the likes of beemers.

Seeing all the features for this model makes me think i rather spend my 300k (if i have) on air flight lo..

Most of the features i can get from a aircraft. :a-happy:

if 1 year fly 5 times (each time say $2k for econ class), i can have the experience for 30 years!!

Throw in some first class trip as bonus, still can have the experience for 20 year lo..  :yeah-im-not-drunk:

Volvo XC 90 Excellence

Volvo SE told me XC90 launched near one year liao, sold less than 50 units,

because 2.0L in line engine used Supercharged + turbocharged hardly squeezed out 320bhp, most parts long term working under overloading,

worry shorten lifespan, same price rather go for Q7 or X5 liao, 3.5L V6 better combination with such body weight

Hehe Audi Q7 latest model also on 2.0L engine with turbocharging.. no supercharging. But I think new platform + weight saving programme helps the Q7 (100kg or so lighter than base Volvo XC90 T5 model).

 

But the Volvo have T6 version leh.. 6.5s to 100km/h not bad for a 2 tonne school bus.

New Q7 2.0L 250bhp  nothing wrong, only issue is whether squeezed the power, if not for racing purpose, 2.0L turbo 200 to 250bhp is quite reasonable and common powertrain, no harmful to engine and drivetrain parts

most probably you saw old xc90, 2.5L T5

My China friend said new xc90 also no market in China,  low capacity squeezed high power, cause noisy/vibration/shorten lifespan,

and no face in front of friends, if they knew "1 million RMB only bought 4 cylinders"   :grin:

no doubts, Q7 even if I don't like it as well :D

if XC90 equipped V6 engine then XC90

I don't think squeezed is the right word lah. It's all about tuning and optimization. The Mercedes AMG A45 can push out 381hp from a 2L turbo, so it can be done. These are branded European cars, I'm sure they know what they are doing and will always factor in some safety margins (so actually is detuned). That is why still can do aftermarket mod chips to boost power further.

If it's from the manufacturer, it's tuned. If aftermarket mod, it's squeezed :)

I tested XC90 T5 and T6 models and I must say the Drive E engine is amazing. The numbers are actually comparable to my IL6 and in reality, the drive is really good for the 2l workhorse. If in the market for SUV, this will definitely be on my list now! I don't know much about the reliability to comment though.

Based on July's data, the new XC90 outsold the X5 and Q7 in the US midsize luxury SUV range. Quite a mark improvement compared to prior year!
