Volvo XC90

Volvo XC90 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 T6 Momentum 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

The XC90 is a competitive three-row SUV. Base models use a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo, offered with front- or all-wheel drive. Our tested T6, with its 316-hp turbocharged and supercharged version, delivered decent punch and returned 20 mpg overall, but it sounds raspy. A plug-in hybrid with an electric range of about 14 miles is available. All versions use an eight-speed automatic. Handling is commendable, but the ride is stiff--though the optional air suspension makes it slightly better. The interior is quiet, plush, and modern, with supercomfortable seats. But audio, phone, and navigation functions are controlled through an unintuitive touch-screen infotainment system that's frustrating to use. Many electronic safety features are available. First-year reliability has been well below average.

Volvo XC90 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Base

The XC90 SUV's best qualities include its flexible and comfortable interior, seven-passenger seating capacity, and long list of safety features. However, its high curb weight and underpowered engines detract from the driving experience. So-so fuel economy is another negative. The ride is fairly comfortable if a bit stiff, and handling is responsive and secure. The standard ESC works very well. A Yamaha-built, 4.4-liter V8 mated to a six-speed automatic brought significantly more power in 2006. For 2007 an adequately powerful 3.2-liter six-cylinder replaced the base five-cylinder engine; the V8 was dropped after 2011.

The XC90 SUV's best qualities include its flexible and comfortable interior, seven-passenger seating capacity, and long list of safety features.

For 2007, an adequately powerful 3.2-liter six-cylinder replaced the base five-cylinder engine; the V8 was dropped after 2011. Unfortunately, Volvo held off on the redesign too long for the XC90, so by 2013, the model scored too low to be recommended. However, the 2016 redesign brought a much nicer vehicle, one we heartly endorse.
