Our white 2.5 came in about two weeks early - unexpectedly. We just drove it home. It was the first one delivered by our dealership here in Cleveland. (we ordered it mid-October).

Very impressed with it. Compares favorably to my BMW X5, though not quite as nimble on the exit ramps.

I'll provide updates as I drive it more (it's my wife's)

Re: Just drove ours home! (blujeep)

Just spent an hour buzzing around in the snow, and it handles admirably. Completely sure footed through 3-4 new inches of snow and slush.

Really excited how well it is handling on back, curvy roads. Dare I say I'm having more fun than my X5 (though it's probably just the newness of the XC90). Quite nimble in parking lots and parallel parking situations.

More to come, plus pics when the snow stops.

Re: Just drove ours home! ([email protected])

too early to tell. The X5 is definitely more sporty, especially at 75 mph on exit ramps. But the XC90 is more roomy, and the driving position is better for my wife.

It is striking how similar the two are - both inside and out. The two look great side by side in the garage.
