Our Cars brief update: Volvo XC90 (month two), CAR+ June 2016

Published: 01 May 2016 Updated: 18 May 2016

Turn the page now if you don’t have children and never transport kids long distances. If you do, chances are you occasionally roll out films on epic journeys. Now, our XC90 – extravagantly equipped as it is with £16k of options – missed out on a pair of the company’s integrated tablet holders.

So I was pleased to see that the classic Volvo rubberised head restraints would let us clip a pair of cheapo Sainsburys DVD players to keep the little guys entertained on a drive to the south coast. Bit messy, but I’m £525 better off.
