2020 Volvo XC90 Hybrid review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Volvo XC90?

The XC90 is Volvo’s flagship SUV. It seats six or seven in three rows, depending on the second-row configuration. A 250-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, while a supercharged and turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that makes 316 hp is available. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is available. 

Volvo also sells a plug-in hybrid version of the XC90 that can travel up to 18 miles on electric power alone, according to EPA estimates. Competitors include the BMW X5 and Audi Q7.  

What’s New on the 2020 Volvo XC90?

The XC90’s front-end styling has been refreshed, and a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel screen is now standard. The available six-seat interior is also new. 

What Features in the 2020 Volvo XC90 Are Most Important?

Standard convenience features include adaptive cruise control, a power liftgate, four-zone automatic air conditioning and a panoramic moonroof with a power sunshade. Active safety features include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert.  

Should I Buy the 2020 Volvo XC90?

The XC90 should be on your consideration list if you’re shopping for a three-row luxury SUV. It’s comfortable, refined and has a user-friendly multimedia system. It doesn’t offer the most athletic driving experience, and it can be difficult to access the third row, but the XC90 still impresses overall.

Love my new XC90

This car has all the features I have always wanted in an SUV. I specifically wanted a plug-in hybrid that seats 7 and this car does exactly that, plus providing high quality, safety, and luxury.
