Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pro:
Well-built and spacious cabin
Comfortable seats in the front and second rows
Strong acceleration, especially in the XC90 T8
Cons:
Third-row seats are only good for small adults or kids
One USB port in a luxury family crossover is unacceptable

Pros
Sharp new look and style; spacious second- and third-row seating; many standard safety technology features; confident handling; available hybrid model.

Cons
Overly busy and firm ride quality; base engine comes up short on performance and real-world fuel economy; some touchscreen controls are hard to use.

Endnote:
The XC90's suspension tuning is another mixed bag. On smooth pavement, the XC90 feels calm and controlled on its available air suspension. But over ruts, bumps and broken pavement, the vehicle delivers too many impacts and jitters to the occupants for a luxury SUV. We've only driven the XC90 with the big 21-inch wheels, but based on that experience, we recommend going with smaller wheels if possible to help smooth out the ride. Around turns, there's better news, as the XC90 inspires confidence with its planted character, feeling smaller and lighter than it really is.

The 2016 XC90 is raising the design bar in the premium three-row large crossover segment. And with a long roster of standard equipment that includes leather seating, navigation, a panoramic sunroof, a smartphone-like infotainment system and state-of-the-art safety gear, the XC90 provides an intriguing alternative to the German-branded competition.
