Volvo V90 D4 R-Design
 
Morning

I have an opportunity through work to opt into a company vehicle, never before in my entire life at hitting nearly 40 next month have i been in this position.

Bearing in mind my family and i only have older Volvos, my mum a 2003 V70 D5, we have a 2009 XC90, 1996 850R and my wifes 2007 C70 D5 SE LUX.

I never thought id own a brand spanker of a volvo!

As we are keen caravaners , currently have a 2008 Abbey Spectrum twin axle weighing in at 1490kg, the XC90 tows with ease, but with a work car i cannot justify to keeping the XC as well.

Im looking at a new V90 D4 R-Design, does anyone own one of these and can give some feedback on how it performs when towing etc. Specifically how they ride, perform, does the lack of self levelling mean the V90 sits on its arse (yes i know it depends on how the outfit is loaded)

Really interested in peoples views

Thanks

Rich

I tow a 1500 Kg Lunar caravan with a D4 V90CC; obviously, I canít comment on the ride height of a standard V90, due to the extra height of the CC, but the towing performance is more than adequate, and it has proved to be every bit as good a tow car as my previous XC90 and XC70s were.
