With a new baby, the wife and I are looking at a used 3-row-seating SUV family car for under $25k. We looked at a lot of SUVs this past weekend and really liked the XC90 V8 in terms of looks, safety and how it drove. Also, the V8 seems to avoid the transmission problems associated with the T6.
That said, I absolutely love the looks of the LR3 V8 and can't help but feel they're similar in size, price, and luxury. I searched The Car Lounge and found very little on the LR3 to compare.
Thoughts on either?
