2016 XC90

We have a 2016 XC90 which has generally been in good condition. Last spring we started to notice low oil warnings, and slowly the car began to eat up more oil. The gasket was subsequently replaced, but the car's oil gauge continued to go down. Recently some testing was done on the car, and we were told that the car needs new pistons and for that reason, and brand new engine. We live in the UK and were quoted a complete engine replacement for £10000 ($13000). We contacted the Volvo company and they gave us a 30% compensation towards an engine replacement. However, this still seems like a ton of money wasted on a 5 year old car. We are about 1 year out on paying off the car loan. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone happen to know any mechanics in the Peterborough,UK area who specialize in XC90s?
