Have never been impressed with the Volvo’s, test drove an XC90 last year and remember thinking that after all these years they still do not know how to deliver a nice damped ride like the Germans. Actually preferred the Durango RT and Grand Cherokee which both drove better imo. Hell, I was super impressed with the Alfa Romeo Stelvio as well which rides like the Germans. I always put the Swedes ride quality in with the Japanese and again after all of these years it is just not that impressive to me.

Would love to to see a pic of that Genesis badge on the boot lid, you probably have people rushing home and looking it up.

Some reviewers called the Volvo ride ‘brittle’, we didn’t get that impression. We did love our Jeep GC’s ride though, but have to be honest. The Hyundai is better. As far as the Genesis badge. I’m positive Hyundai will have something in the next 2 years based on the Palisade’s architecture. It will give them an excuse to put the V8 in it, up the tech and push the luxury even further. My guess would be a range topping model for $80K that rivals the Mercedes and BMW in every way. Just go drive a V8 G90 Ultimate.

Interesting. We drove a few different Mercedes, and found the XC90 to ride nicer than any of them. Some Volvo owners say the XC90 can be very sensitive to different wheel & tire combinations, and then there is always the air ride option that some love and some do not. Again, to each their own, and it's nice that there are so many excellent choices. My youngest son bought a new Range Rover Evoque for his wife, and he actually prefers the Volvo after having driven both - but his wife just HAD to have the "cute" Range Rover. As I said, to each their own, I guess.

I'm also looking for the wife. She likes the Kia. I like the Kia OUTSIDE and the Palisade INSIDE....
