Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The former T5 powertrain has been dropped from the S90 range while an all-new R-Design package offers a sportier take on the big sedan. In our experience, the T5's 250-hp turbocharged inline-four sometimes felt strained propelling this heavyweight, so it's no big loss that the base engine is now the 316-hp T6. This also means all S90s are all-wheel drive, since the T5 was the only front-driver in the lineup. The R-Design replaces exterior chrome with black trim, wears new front and rear designs, and a variety of other accents.As with all other 2020 Volvos, the 12.3-inch digital driver display is standard, haptic feedback now vibrates the steering wheel when the Pilot Assist semi-autonomous driving mode disengages (that is, you have to take over steering again), the battery in all T8 plug-in hybrids is now a larger 11.6-kWh pack (up from 10.6), and autobraking is standard with cross-traffic alert technology.

Pros
Beautiful outside and in with lots of room and comfort, while the unique combination of both turbocharging and supercharging make the T6 a strong and efficient four-cylinder.

Cons
Falls short of many large luxury competitors in smooth refinement of both the engine and ride, and the Sensus infotainment system—while appealing to the eye—should be easier to use.

The XC90 receives a visual freshening for 2020 by way of a new grille and front bumper; Volvo also has restyled the XC90's wheels. Base Momentum models now come with low-profile roof rails and integrated tailpipes while sporty R-Design models swap matte silver exterior trim for gloss black. All XC90 models now come standard with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, R-Design and Inscription trims gain front parking sensors as standard, and Volvo has tweaked the operation of both the rear cross-traffic alert feature and added active-steering support for the City Safety driver-assistance feature.

Pros
Sleek exterior, chic cabin, a plethora of standard driver-assistance features.

Cons
Unrefined engine sounds, flinty ride, laggy infotainment response upon startup.
