Volvo | XC90 Luxury SUV – How it stacks up Versus Competition

Volvo XC90 Luxury SUV

Why is the 2022 Volvo XC90 an excellent example of a true luxury SUV? Not only is it really nice to look at, with updated exterior styling and upscale interior detail, but the three trims cover a rich tapestry of available options that set it apart from the Audi Q7, BMW X5, Mercedes GLE 350, the Lexus RX350 and others on the market.

What's more is that Volvo's enduring emphasis on the important parts - luxury for the entire family (it comes with an optional integrated booster seat!) -- certainly does come through in every aspect of this vehicle. Read on to see how the Volvo XC90 stacks up to the competition in safety, interior and exterior, infotainment, cargo space and more.

Safety Comes Standard In The 2022 XC90

Safety has always been synonymous with the Volvo brand, and it continues to be a high priority for the 2022 XC90. In fact, the 2021 XC90 earned the highest possible safety rating from the NHTSA and a 2021 Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS, the best accolade they award. 

This is in part achieved through the standard availability of Pilot Assist Driver Assistance on all trims, a feature only made optional on all competitors except the 2022 Lexus RX350. Additional built-in systems such as Blind Spot Information System (aptly named "BLIS") keeps you safely in your lane in the event you've drifted, and the Safety Assistance system will even apply brakes to avoid a collision with potential hazards in the road.

The Volvo XC90 Interior Provides an Indulgent Escape

The interior of the Volvo offers plenty of high-end tech and luxe appointments for each of the up-to-7 adults it can carry. The spacious third row can be walked through with ease, and Dual Rear Zone Climate Control and Auto-Dimming Exterior Mirrors come standard - something that's only optional or Driver's side only on the Mercedes Benz GLE 350 or any BMW X5 for sale.

The minimalist interior utilizes beautiful surfacing and high-quality materials. The 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster keeps passengers effortlessly connected, and the 9-inch touch screen accommodates Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and even can adjust ambient lighting. Although luxurious, the BMW X5 interior or Mercedes GLE 350 interior are more blatant with design flourishes, whereas the Volvo XC90 interior projects a quieter, high-class vibe replete with subtle conveniences. And if cargo capacity is a focus, the Volvo XC90 2022 is the clear winner, even over the Audi Q7 Interior, which has a cargo area that doesn't offer the same voluminous comfort as the XC90. 

The 2022 XC90 Hybrid Option provides strong acceleration and high fuel economy

The Volvo XC90 Hybrid option also sets the Volvo XC90 2022 apart in this comparison, as only the 2022 BMW X5 RWD has a hybrid plug-in option. However, you will get less mileage per gallon in a BMW X5 lease as compared to a Volvo XC90 lease due to Volvo's superior 21/30/25 MPG for city, highway and combined, respectively. And while a Volvo XC90 for sale will fall somewhere between a Lexus RX350 for sale and a Mercedes GLE 350 for sale, you'll get a noticeably more solid MPG than either of them. The Volvo XC90 Towing Capacity, while not as impressive as the Mercedes GLE or BMW X5 Towing Capacity, the 4,000-pound capacity is sufficient for trailers and camper trips in and around Bonita Springs, Fort Myers, Naples and Weston, or step it up to the AWD powertrain configuration for an additional 1,000-pounds of capacity.

All Volvo XC90 reviews concur that this vehicle is a top pick in the luxury SUV market. Although 2022's major upgrade to the 2021 Volvo XC90 is mainly the addition of the navigation system, the 2021 model year also stacks up nicely in comparison to the 2021 Audi Q7, the 2021 BMW X5, the Lexus RX350 and GLE 350 Mercedes.
