Not to completely derail this thread, but compare the number of automotive makers with the number of 'brands' desired in this thread. That, by itself, should derail the 'brand recognition' argument in the conference debate. Ok, proceed.
I have an XC60 that I love. Drives like a dream.Ive had a Volvo S90 for about 3 months and love it.

If looking at a Volvo, consider the "overseas Delivery program". I've had a few family members that have done this and would do it again in a heartbeat. I would have, but my car that I was replacing didn't seem to understand the time line.
I would go Audi. Germans are evil but really created a ton of great things. And yes I am German.
I've had one of each. I currently own a BMW 540i Xdrive and I do love the car. But the XC90 continues to catch my eye, even though my other car is a Yukon. This said, I'm considering dumping both vehicles and getting an Audi Q8.
I did want to clarify - I wasn't doing a whole bragging "which car that's soooo fancy should I buy" thread! It was more of a conversation in, "How do you look at brand names, and what are your criteria?"
For example - of these three, even though it's not the fanciest or most prestigious of the three, I like Volvo because they're goofy and unique and different. I don't know that I'd choose a car based off of those criteria, but just for name brand alone, it's the most interesting to me.
