Volvo makes a number of minor changes to the 2021 XC90 lineup. Every model now comes standard with front parking sensors, LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel, high-pressure headlight washers, wireless charging, two USB-C ports on the back of the center console, and the company's Care Key, which allows an owner to set limitations on the vehicle's top speed. The plug-in-hybrid T8 is now branded with the Recharge moniker..

Pros
Stunning styling inside and out,
impressive list of features,
quick plug-in hybrid.

Cons
Coarse-sounding gas engines,
harsh ride on rough roads,
plug-in hybrid isn't as efficient as rivals.

Low-key luxury lies in the 2021 Volvo XC90’s serene cockpit, in its strong acceleration, and in its gray-wool confines.

Pros

Simple and sophisticated interior
Tablet-like touchscreen
Lots of models and trims
Great safety record and standard active tech

Cons
Base powertrain lacks potency
Some flimsy materials in the cabin
Not a performance SUV
