Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class may not look different than its predecessor, but its new suspension and interior bring it into the 21st century. Finally.

Pros
Classic look retained
Almost certainly better on road
Updated, roomier interior
Still brims with character

Cons
Is it too derivative?
Independent front suspension may dillute off-road ability
Only one off-road mode
Bound to be wildly expensive

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz G-Class ranked #3 in Luxury Large SUVs. Currently the Mercedes-Benz G-Class has a score of 8.6 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 8 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Incredible off-road ability
Powerful engines
Top-notch cabin

Cons
A true gas guzzler
Sky-high price tag

By: 
usnews.com

Fully redesigned for 2019.Bigger and better driving than before.Part of the second G-Class generation introduced for 2019.

Pros
Impressive off-road abilities
Good on-road behavior
Powerful V8 engine
Refined interior

Cons
Expensive, even for a luxury SUV
Last-generation infotainment system

By: 
edmunds.com

For 2019, the XC90 has no major powertrain updates but some new standard features and updated option packages. Every model now has updated infotainment software, third-row seating, heated washer nozzles, a 12-volt outlet in the cargo area, and four-zone climate control, among other things. The higher trim levels have a Harman/Kardon premium stereo, navigation, sun shades in the rear side windows, and a tailored dashboard and upper door panels.

Pros
Astonishingly beautiful,
solid driving dynamics,
safety by Volvo.

Cons
Can approach starter-home prices,
minor powertrain flaws,
base trim lacks the lineup’s best features.

By: 
caranddriver.com

The 2019 Volvo XC90 is a standout effort from the Swedish brand, offering style, luxury, and practicality in a way many other luxury SUVs don’t.

Pros
Svelte Swedish looks
Less-is-more interior
Tablet-like infotainment
Wide variety of models and trims
Standard safety tech

Cons
Not worth six figures at top end
Base powertrain lacks oomph
Rear seats could use more support
Questionable materials in places

By: 
thecarconnection.com

Base AWD models get heated seats and four-zone climate control.R-Design and Inscription models get new Harman Kardon stereo.Convenience and Momentum Plus packages eliminated from lineup.Advanced and Multimedia packages added to options.The 2019 Volvo XC90 is a three-row luxury SUV with broad appeal. At base trim levels, it's full of high-tech safety features and luxurious cabin materials, and it even starts at a reasonable price.

PROS
Elegant styling inside and out
Precise handling that inspires confidence
Spacious second- and third-row seating for a midsize SUV
Many standard safety technology features

CONS
Overly busy ride quality for a vehicle in its class
Some touchscreen controls can be hard to use
Excessive road and engine noise
Difficult to stop smoothly
