Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The name sounds odd, but the Touareg offers a comfortable ride and spirited performance—something we all can understand. Its 3.6-liter V-6 makes 280 hp and is mated to an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The Touareg is large, comfortable, and solid—plus it’s equally at home both on and off the pavement. A standard touchscreen infotainment display is functional but dated; the optional adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, however, are well engineered and effective.

PROS
Comfortable, tech-laden interior
Active safety functions
3.5 tonne towing, real off-road ability
Ride on standard air suspension

CONS
No seven-seat option
Lacks a full-size spare tyre
Expensive for a Volkswagen

By:

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.

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
