I have my DVR set to automatically record any show with the keyword 'Volvo XC90'. It recorded Esquire's Car Of The Year, where they evaluate SUV's. I haven't watched it yet, but wanted to mention that there is an upcoming re-broadcast.

On DirecTv- [Your Cable / satellite provider channel & time may vary]
November 21st, channel 235 @ 2:00AM
It is listed as Season 1 - Episode 2

Lucky you. Ep #5 isn't available to me yet but I'll keep looking. Glade to see Volvo took the crown!

So watched the episode and they claimed XC90 0-60 in 5.9 seconds? I wonder how they accomplished that but damn that is impressive for 4 cyl. SUV. Most other tests have been 6.4 or 6.5 sec.

Anyone have access/link to that video?

I read somewhere that the T8 acceleration is between 5.3-5.6 sec.

5.6 0-100 seem to be from Volvo. I am conservative now.

The official 0-60 time from Volvo is 6.1 secs.

Bummer. While my DVR auto-recorded one episode for me, looks like that's all I'll get. It appears as though that channel for me was part of a short free preview that has ended. :(

Esquire's car of the year, that leaks water into the cabin.
I'm sure they'll fix it. Happened to our new 2015 F150 water leaked through the moonroof, there was a hose that was bent/blocking drain hole that takes the water out & now everything is fixed no more issues after 7 months :)
