Meet Huey
 
Well after three and a half years of trouble free ownership in the XC60, well apart from the obligatory EGR and cooler replacement it was time for a change. Decided to downsize this time.

What model is it, I can see its a CC but I can't see the badge, they all look the same these days, is it a V90, nice though. You will love it.

Yeah 90CC PRO. Drives so differently to my previous XC60 R-Design, much softer ride, sort of wafts along. Just getting used to all the new tech.

I am sure you will enjoy it and have a great time discovering all the features, I am still finding things after 3 years. Good choice getting the CC version, easier to get in and out.

But, make sure you donít squeeze into gaps based on your previous XC60 else you may get a nasty surprise!

HaHa. Thanks for the tip. First thing I noticed when looking at the 90 CC, was how wide it appeared. Didn't know the exact measurements, . . . but I do now. Certainly makes you slow down and keep to the left on narrower roads when another vehicle is oncoming. 👍

Itís the length that always trips me up. I think Iíve parked perfectly in a space then realise the car is overhanging. Oh well !

Same with my V90 - parked in Tesco yesterday, walked back to the car and realised it was sticking out somewhat - couldn't get it any further in the space.

360į camera makes parking a doddle with these long cars. I would always spec one now.

Conversely I'm finding it easier having 'downsized' from a L200!
