Volvo XC90 Competitive Comparison

Why Choose the 2020 Volvo XC90 Over the Competition?

Experience Scandinavian luxury that effortlessly combines form and function. The 2020 Volvo XC90 is an exceptional choice for drivers looking for a completely fulfilling life, on and off the road.


For the ultimate expressive luxury SUV, the 2020 XC90 revels in its available model configurations, boasting three unique designs, including the Momentum, Inscription, and R-Design models.

With elegant craftsmanship comes comfort for the whole family. Illuminated by natural light under the standard panoramic roof, the XC90's spacious cabin is tailored to fit your needs, as drivers can opt for the available six or seven-passenger seating configuration. The new 6-seat option makes the third row more accessible than ever as passengers can walk through the wide middle aisle with ease. The seven-passenger configuration offers an integrated booster seat, allowing each member of the family to sit safely in luxury. Available with your choice of leatherette or Nappa perforated interior upholstery, the XC90 is easily customized to reflect your personality when seeking something modern or more sophisticated.


For premier connectivity, the XC90 offers drivers the ability to connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™. You'll be able to intuitively interact with popular apps like Waze navigation from the 9" Sensus Touchscreen. The digital driver display projects pertinent information directly in front of you and will even modify brightness based on the light conditions in your environment. For utmost convenience, voice control within the XC90 responds to natural speech, allowing you to seamlessly control the suite of technology features at your fingertips.


The Volvo XC90 provides peace of mind for you and your family on treacherous roadways, as safety comes standard. If there's a vehicle in your blind spot and you try to change lanes, the Blind Spot Information System with Steer Assist is designed to alert and gently steer you back into your lane. Plus, the City Safety system is always watching. If it detects a potential hazard, such as a pedestrian or large animal, and you don't react in time, it can automatically apply the brakes to help avoid or mitigate a collision. These features are the tip of the iceberg, as every XC90 is exceptionally outfitted with a robust suite of safety tech that will provide a helping hand for you and your loved ones in the toughest driving situations.


The 2020 XC90 is impressively powerful, offering four robust powertrain options:

  • T5 FWD (250-horsepower & 258 pound-feet of torque)
  • T5 AWD (250-horsepower & 258 pound-feet of torque)
  • T6 AWD (316-horsepower & 295 pound-feet of torque)
  • T8 eAWD (400 horsepower & 472 pound-feet of torque)
