Driving Impression

New Car Test Drive

Power is sufficient with the base T5 powertrain, but without much surplus to propel weighing well over two tons. Torque output emerges at low engine speed, but eases as the revs rise. Passing can be hesitant, especially on mountain upgrades.

Though the stronger turbo/supercharged T6 engine is more complex, it’s quiet, capable, and largely refined. Performance leader is the T8 plug-in hybrid, which also is the thriftiest choice, as well as the most costly.

With any powertrain, the XC90 handles like a smaller car. Driver feedback from the electric power steering feels impressively natural. Body roll is limited, despite 9.3-inch ground clearance and a tall body.

Ride quality is comfortably quiet, whether the XC90 has base 18-inch tires or optional 22-inchers. Choosing an air suspension instead of the conventional setup doesn’t necessarily smooth the ride.

In most models, drivers can select Comfort, Eco, Dynamic, or Off Road mode – or elect a customized program. Each mode program controls shift points, throttle sensitivity, and steering heft. T8 drivers choose from Hybrid, Power, Pure, and Comfort modes.

Fuel economy exceeds expectations. T5 versions with all-wheel drive are EPA-rated at 22/28 mpg City/Highway, or 24 mpg Combined. Front-wheel drive raises the ratings slightly, to 22/29/25 mpg. T6 engines are EPA-rated at 20/27 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined.

The T8 plug-in can now travel up to 19 miles on electricity alone. When the battery is depleted, it’s rated at 27 mpg Combined.

Walk Around

New Car Test Drive

Beauty doesn’t have to be complex, as the XC90 demonstrates masterfully. Elegant, yet bold, simplicity is the secret.

Perhaps most notably, the crossover looks smaller than its actual dimensions predict, and far smaller than its hefty weight would suggest.

Wheels reach forcefully toward the corners. Positioning the engine farther back than usual gives the XC90 an extended nose, plus proportions that suggest rear-wheel drive rather than front-drive. Although the windshield is less steeply angled than some rivals, the tail end displays aerodynamic sculpting. Abundant glass translates to good outward visibility.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive

Blending upscale traditional luxury with modern sensibility, the lovely XC90 cabin incorporates high-quality materials and luxury-level craftsmanship.

Front seats promise long-haul comfort, and just about anyone can find a suitable driving position. Adults fit well in the second row, though seats could use additional padding. Seats slide fore/aft to apportion leg clearance for second- and third-row passengers. Adults fit into the third row (if installed), but youngsters would be happier.

Most passengers get good views, helped by elevated “stadium-type” seating in back rows.

With second- and third-row seatbacks folded flat, cargo space totals 85.7 cubic feet. Volume dips to 41.8 cubic feet with the second row upright. With the third-row upright, space drops to 15.8 cubic feet.

Volvo’s Sensus infotainment system is among the most functional, dominated by a vertically-oriented 9.0-inch touchscreen.


New Car Test Drive

Volvo offers quite a range of trim and powertrain choices for its XC90, helping to boost its competitive position. Comfortable and quiet-running, Volvo’s largest crossover is impressively equipped, even in Momentum trim, while priced well below many rival luxury models.
