Crossovers can still be fun ... sort of, for the most part.
The Volvo XC90 is not known for its sporting pretensions. It's built by the Swedes, so it puts safety and technology above all else - and, thankfully, they don't ask you to build it yourself). If it can dodge a moose, it's good for the public. It's understandable, then, that any sort of aggressive or sporty upgrades might take a back seat to all the, you know, important stuff. And up until today, it has.
