Volvo XC90 T8 Inscription
Our favourite plug-in hybrid has been updated; let’s see if that makes any difference in daily use.
Will Nightingale

I CAN HEAR you now. Why is that Mr Nightingale running a Volvo XC90 when it’s been on sale since 2015? In fact, I wouldn’t blame you for thinking that I’m just being a tart and fancied something posh.

Here’s the thing, though: while I’m not going to deny liking a bit of luxury, the T8 version that I’ve got scooped our Plug-in Hybrid of the Year award back in January. And if you look closely at my car, you’ll notice the concave front grille, a sign that this is the new-for-2019 facelifted XC90.

Other changes include a restyled front bumper, new alloy wheel designs and an extra USB port inside. And don’t worry; you’re not going to be reading months’ worth of reports about how good it is to be able to top up my mobile and wireless earphones at the same time, because there are also technical changes.
