  1. I have a Prius and a modified 4Runner. I’d be perfectly comfortable driving that course in the Prius. I’m sure the XC90 is capable, not a 4Runner or Range Rover or anything like that but great for what it is, but this sure didn’t show it.

  2. Katy, I'm one of those lesbians that drives a Volvo S.U.V. I was a soccer mom. All I can tell you is the world is messed up right now. Don't think current volatile trends will change any time soon.

  3. Okay before everyone starts crying, well I see you have. This isn’t very off road, a FWD or RWD car couldn’t do it but this car it seriously capable for its class

  4. 3:17 – Could that pose by any more non-genuine? LOL


    At best, the XC90 would be good for mid-level off-roading. But let's face the facts here. The majority of people that will buy this won't be spending any time driving through any trails. They're all going to be pavement prowlers carrying out the same tasks you mentioned in the beginning of this video.

  5. Just pulled one out of a snowy ditch this morning with my Ram 2500, I couldn't understand why the back tires on the Volvo wouldn't spin or receive any power at all

  6. This video does more harm than good to the brand. This is just driving over a dry flat field? These vehicles are more capable than that. Way too worried about playing it safe. The Russians and scandanavians show you how it's done.
